Yes they can also live in the Ocean, But they cannot stay in a properly balanced pool for long. They seem to survive in salt water pools for their normal "season" refardless of water balance or condition. They do not appear to be harmful and can only be made to disappear with a chemical product tha…t is hazadous to humans. ( Full Answer )
Yes but it would probably be a bit rough on the eyes until it settled down a bit.
Answer . \nI answer this question as a kidney transplant patient myself. Swimming in salt water itself poses no risk to a kidney transplant patient. The phrase 'a salt water pool' may mean a swimming pool which uses salt to generate chlorine. This is not the same as swimming in salt water. A… pool which uses salt to generate chlorine should not be dangerous, though it will be a somewhat weaker form of chlorine. If at all in doubt, ask your doctor. ( Full Answer )
Answer . If you accidently swallowed some of the salt water.. Unless the sanitary conditions were extremely poor you may not have gotten sick from the pool water. However, on the other hand if you had something to eat that dat that did not agree with you - this may be your answer.
It would probably be the smart thing to do because if you combine salt and chlorine, your pH level will be extremely low (very acidic) I have to correct the above answer:::: That answ. may be partially right in that changing the water would not hurt especially if it has been more than 5 years sin…ce the water has been changed. The latter part of the answ. is what I question. "Salt water pools" have salt added in order to make chlorine. Adding chlor. by hand at a rate of a gallon at a time has a very minute effect on the pH of the pool. If anything it may raise it but seldom lower it. Adding chlor. via the salt system should also have minimal effects since it is added continually and at steady levels. The make up of the water - either acidic or alkaline can effect the chemistry. Plaster pools have a high demand for acid since there is lime in the plaster mix. HTH will have an effect on raising your pH since it is a calcium based product. Tab chlorine on the other hand can lower your pH levels because the pH of a tab is near 2.5 or3.0 --quite on the acid side. k . ( Full Answer )
Answer . no, the salt water purifier does not emit salt intoxications it will taste just like pure water, if they do it must be a very light taste of salt
You can use either type of salt, but the salt for pools is better because it dissolves very quickly. 40 lbs bags cost around $6 at major home improvement chains.. It is highly recommended to use nothing but pool salt for chlorine generated pools.. YOU CAN NOT USE "EITHER" TYPE OF SALT!!! To save a… few cents per bag of salt will cost you an arm and a leg in repairs to damaged equipment ( salt generator). Swimming pools and related equipment do not do well when you cut corners on cost. You may be able to do it on a few items but in the long run it will end up costing you more. USE WHAT IS RECOMMENDED BY THE MANUFACTURER OF THE SALT SYSTEM ! ( Full Answer )
chlorine is generated from salt by a process called electrolysis. The salt water passes through an electrically charged cell. this process physically separates the "sodium chloride" molecule, which produces chlorine.
NO NO A LITTLE BIT of algae isn't going to hurt you. If you ever swim in a lake, river or ocean, there's algae present there. You probably even carry the algae home on your swimsuit. But the pool needs to be treated as soon as you notice it, since a pool doesn't have the properties of moving natu…ral water to keep the algae under control. It's an ongoing battle to keep enough chlorine in the water to avoid algae, while not putting to much chlorine. The EPA states the limit of chlorine exposure to humans should be no more than 4 parts per million. So don't just dump load and loads of chlorine in to solve your problem. A retail pool store can test your water and advise how much chlorine and/or algaecide is needed to get rid of it. You may need to get the chlorine up to 5 ppm to kill the algae. Just wait until the level drops below 4 ppm before you swim again. ( Full Answer )
Color loss of what?. You didn't specify loss of color on what. Tile, deck, plaster, clothing. In any case chlorine would be a more likely culprit.
The same as in any chlorine pool toss a bit of extra chlorine in for starters, if this does not help get some algaecide from your pool shop. Not be careful that you use the right kind of algaecide as metal based products don't necessarily agree with salt water chlorinators.
Please do your research on swimming pools with salt systems! A salt system is simply a chlorine generator. The only difference is that the chlorine (sodium hypochlorite) is made fresh on site.
The term "free form" with regard to pools is the shape of the pool. The pool has no straight edges or sides as in a rectangular or round pool. The pool coping has varying curves.
no its probably not safe to swim in cloudy pool water. reason number 1 is because you might not know how deep the pool water is and you could endanger yourself.
NO ! ! ! ANS 2 Depends, - if you DO NOT drink the well water then it's fine. ( many people on wells buy bottled water) If you DO drink it then you are at risk if you do this.
Drain all or part of the water depending on how hi the salt concentration. Be careful when emptying pools. Check water table first
The safety of a person swimming in foamy pool water is related tothe reason the water is foamy. Chemicals in the pool may not besafe when treating for a time period after added to the water. Itis best to ask a person who manages the pool, identify why foam ispresent, and read all chemical warnings.
Yes, just as long as you dont go to jump in a pool or ocean right after you color your hair.
There aren't any. Salt water is bad for swimming competitively because the salt in the water burns the swimmers skin after a while in the water and they because dehydrated and they become thirsty. But if you were to conduct a event where there was a need for a salt water pool then you could probably… make the event in a shark-free part of the ocean. ( Full Answer )
Can you change a fresh water swimming pool to a salt water swimming pool and keep the same water pump?
No You can't. We have found that changing the water to a salt water chlorination system does affect your swimming pool pump and heater if you have one. Over time the "salt water" will affect the working components of the pump and will corrode. That especially applies to a heater system if one is att…ached. In this case we would advise buying a chlorination system that has a built in pump. Well, the above answer "no you can't" is definitely not as stated entered by kbattle39. The original answer has been deleted. Now to get to the real facts the above answer is totally wrong assuming you are talking about a salt system pool. The correct answer would be YES you can use the same pump. The person who composed the 5 line paragraph above could not be more wrong and does not know what he/she is talking about. kbattle39 ( Full Answer )
Things to keep in mind when running a saltwater Chlorinator pool. The pool filter Has to run for long enough to produce the required amount of chlorine.. Conditioner or Cyanuric Acid Levels should be kept up to about 80ppm, Low conditioner levels will lead to a lot of the chlorine in the water bei…ng burned of without it being utilized.. Phosphates in the pool are food for algae. And will cause your chlorine to be used too quickly so keep phosphates levels as low as possible.. Make sure salt level is correct. Don't rely on the Chlorinators indicator to tel you this. As the Chlorinator cell has to be in good condition for this reading to be accurate. If it isn't then you may be adding salt when you shouldn't, which in turn will lead to the system not working properly.. pH should be 7.2-7.8. ( Full Answer )
well, when we go spend a whole day at the pool, we drink tons of that water without even noticing it, and nothing happens to us, so the chance of a dog getting sick of that are pretty low. But still, dnt let him get a habit of it, orr drink too much from it.
A salt water pool has a chlorine generator on it that turns sodium chloride into chlorine gas. The water in the pool is not like the ocean, you can't taste the salt and it doesn't sting your eyes. The water isn't as harsh on clothing, eyes, skin and hair as chlorine is.
polyester Usually, with zero chlorine and much salt per litre, It's best not to take your swimming gear as the salt can corrode them. The best outfit/suit matteriel would have to survive after being soaked in salt. Therefor the best suit to use in a salt water pool would be a birthday suit.
It is not recommended with most swimming pool lights for the sake of the light However swimming pool lights work on low voltage. the power goes through a transformer cutting it down for the sake of safety so even if you end up with a short circuit in the light there is no danger to the swimmers. I…n the 35 years I have been building and remodeling swimming pools I can tell you over 99% of pool lights are 120v. Certainly not low voltage. They are however since 1977 wired through a GFCI breaker to cut the power in the event of a short. I still run into older pools whose light is wired directly to a switch with no safeguards in place.

I have worked around salt water pools for years and have never seen any particular problem with it. however if you were to use the backwash for gardening purposes you may end up wit a build up of salt in the soil. this would also depend upon how well drained the soil is and how much rain fall in the… area. the concentration of salt in a salt water pool is identical to the salt in a tear drop, so it is not very strong. If the salt that is used in the pool is magnesium and potassium chloride then it is actually good for the garden, this is however unusual as the vast majority of pool use sodium chloride which is like table salt.

No the concentration of salt in a saltwater pool is about equal to the amount of salt found in tears so there is nothing to worry about. as a mater of fact it is probably good for it.
I don't see why not. However, most plants cannot tolerate high levels of salt, so you may wind up killing your lawn or other local vegetation. Additional answer: yes, it is safe to drain a salt water pool into the ground. Refer to posts on draining a pool in general before you attempt this. Th…e concentration of salt in a salt water pool is slightly saline, at about 2700-3400ppm as opposed to the ocean which is at 35000ppm. Certain plants/animals can obviously tolerate salt water better than others, so you may have some issues, but in general the levels should be low enough not to cause too many problems./ ( Full Answer )
no need to shock with chlorine but you still have to maintain it like you would with any other pool of water
If you shallow to much water or the water has certin germs able to infect
Yes, but rinse the dye out first (take a shower). Chlorine won't destroy a quality dye job if the dye has properly set.
It is most likely the chlorine in the pool that fades colours of textiles. Perhaps the amount of chlorine being produced by the saltwater chlorinator is too high. If this is the case adjusting it down will make the pool more comfortable to swim in as well. take a sample of water to a pool shop for t…esting. ( Full Answer )
none saline is supposed to keep it crystal clear and sanitary because salt water is inhospitable to bacteria and algae
Are salt water swimming pool filters systems safe as you were told they create chloramine which is a carcinogen when it touches organic material like humans?
Salt water swimming pools are very safe, and are very popular in Australia. Chloramines are created in all chlorine pools including salt and fresh water, generally from being used. Regular maintenance is required to alleviate chloramines.
yes. you can go swimming in a salt or swimming pool chlorine based. however, you must wet your hair and add sulfate free conditioner to it in order for the treatment to stay
I did it today and my eyes feel like this is sand in them. I have been rinsing them with water but they feel irritated
To stretch a point, they are slightly safer, yes- salt water has more buoyancy than fresh water, making "staying afloat" somewhat easier. That does NOT mean children can be unsupervised in a salt water pool.
They are actually both chlorinated. The "salt water pool" simply means there is a salt chlorine generator that makes chlorine from the salt. The water usually has a softer feel it as well.
No, the water is dirty. It can make you sick. Wait til the pool is cleaned before going in.
First thing you need to understand is that a salt water pool is in fact a chlorine pool. The salt in the water (NaCl or sodium chloride) is essentially ripped apart by the electrical current in the pass thru on the pump assembly. A salt water system can sense how much chlorine is needed and strip ap…art sodium from the chloride (making chlorine) in smaller or larger amounts as necessary. The total salinity of a salt water pool is only about one tenth the salinity of the ocean and since you probably don't have plankton or other organic matter living in your pool, it won't feel sticky or tacky the way the ocean does when you get out. Most people actually report that the water feels silky smooth and is similar to how your skin feels if you've ever lived in a home with a water softener. To get back to your question - the only reason I can see why someone would want to spend the money and put chlorine in their pool manually would be if the salt water system mounted on your pump broke or somehow wore out and it was going to cost too much to replace it. As a temporary measure, yes, you could simply add chlorine to the pool for the duration of the season or whatever, but draining the pool and refilling would be a waste. Remember, all a salt water system really does is provide free chlorine all year long. If you'd rather shut it down and pay for the chlorine and monitor it yourself, that is always your prerogative.

We have a salt water pool and have no eye problems. Either you have too much saLt or chlorine. Take a sample to a local pool store for analysys.
Algae reproduce by means of spores. The oceans are always releasing these spore into the air, and any exposed water is going to have spores fall into it, which can then grow into algae, as long as there is sunlight and some mineral content to provide the algae with the necessary ingredients for grow…th.

Not necessarily. If pool water has recently been shocked, the chlorine level may be too high to swim even if the water is clear. Shocking can result in 10 ppm or more of chlorine. The EPA deems up to 4 ppm as safe. Swimming occasionally in a highly chlorinated pool may not be an issue for adults. B…ut excessive chlorine has been known to trigger asthma attacks in children. Also, you should rinse or bathe immediately after swimming to avoid irritated skin from the excess chlorine. A general rule for applying all chemicals to a pool is to wait a minimum of 3 hours before swimming. That gives the chemicals time to dilute and be distributed evenly in the pool. The exception to that rule is high chlorine, which is described above. ( Full Answer )
The pros are that a child learning how to swim and infants can float easier. Cons:infants and people with heart problems may get sick if salt is swallowedð Literally a 7 year old answered this at 7:39 PM, Sunday May 20, 2012

It's kind of hard to swim in one at any other time. Most mothers-to-be aren't willing to put up with the construction equipment required to install one in utero . Well soaking in a pool of salty water is alright because you will be sure its clean but and it helps heal the wound naturally if you h…ad a normal birth. NB: unless you are talking about a salty lake then that's a no-no. ( Full Answer )
Oh yes, viruses and other agents of disease are impeded by salt water just as much as they are by chlorinated fresh water. HIV does not spread through salt water.
Yes and no. Most inground plaster, fiberglass, and vinyl pools are compatible BUT older pool equipment such as heaters with copper heat exchangers and some pool ladders and screws on skimmers and light niches might need to be upgraded to materials that won't readily corrode or be degraded. Newer poo…ls usually have such equipment already but it is best to check. Also, some inground pools build with some types of natural local rock (often limestone in parts of Texas) have reported problems with salt pools so salt systems should not be used or the rock work will need to be sealed on a regular basis to help protect it. Many steel walled above ground pools also are not compatible with salt systems because of corrosion issues. ( Full Answer )
There are a few potential benefits to having a salt water pool for swimming in. Salt water is much less harsh on the skin than chlorine. They also require less cleaning and are easier to maintain and cheaper.
