Yes you still need a pump and filter. The saltwater system generates chlorine and eliminates the need for chlorine tabs. You will still need to keep the water balanced and continue normal pool maintenance.

Adjust your chlorine generator levels.

Many people are choosing to remodel their swimming pool systems to add saltwater chlorination. With a saltwater pool system, a chlorine generator is added to the pool's filtration system. The water circulates through the chlorinator, where salt produces a chlorine gas that dissolves into the water. That chlorine in turn, breaks down and turns into salt, cycling the process all over again.

Salt and a saltwater chlorine generator which is put in-line after the filtration system. Most saltwater chlorinaters work with sodium chloride but there is one type that works with magnesium and potassium chloride which is better for the swimmer and the environment,

You would need a chlorine generator such as Auto Pilot. Many companies make them. After you install the chlorine generator, you add your salt to the pool.

A salt water pool is a chlorine pool. The difference is that the chlorine is manufactured in the system by the chlorine generator. Otherwise NO DIFFERENCE!!

Yes A salt water pool is a chlorine pool any way the difference is that the chlorine in a saltwater pool is made from the salt electronically

If you look at it from the point of view of economy then its a matter of weighing out the difference in the expense of running the chlorine generator long enough to produce the required chlorine. or the cost of the extra chlorine. Often when saltwater chlorinators are installed they are under size to make the sale easier. so a third option is to install a larger chlorine generator. Theoretically you shouldn't have to boost the chlorine at all.

Absolutely! It is very common for customers to want the feel of saltwater without the chlorine generator. ALL CHLORINE POOLS CONTAIN SALT. Chlorine reverts back to salt when used so every pool that has chlorine in it also has salt.

Sure, you CAN, but why would you want to? The purpose of the salt in a saltwater system equipped pool is to provide the chlorine the saltwater system generates. It would be the same as having a saltwater system pool that the saltwater system went bad and you just installed an inline chlorinator in the plumbing instead of replacing the saltwater chlorine generator system so you could add chlorine with the tablets.

If you have a salt water pool then the chlorine generator is there to convert the salt into chlorine to keep up the chlorine content of the pool. However if you don't have one of these or it is broken down you can always add chlorine directly to make up the shortfall until the necessary repairs are done.

No only for the amount of time that it takes to generate enough chlorine an average this is a minimum of 6 hours per day.

A chlorine generator, also known as a salt generator, is an addition to a pool pump and filter system that converts salt to chlorine. It is another method of adding chlorine to a swimming pool. You will still need a filter, like sand, to filter dirt and debris from the swimming pool.

Yes you can use an Ozone generator and a Chlorine generator together. The Ozone generator will actually extend the life of the cell on the Chlorine generator because the ozone takes care of the bulk of the oxidation workload, thus the Chlorine generator does not need to be run as hard.

All salt water systems work the same salt is added to the waterwhich is run through a chlorine generator which creates chlorine gas and mixes it into the water.

Absolutely. Even Intex the supplier to Walmart and toy stores sell a chlorine generator. Pool & Spa

Used for salt water pools, it uses salt to create chlorine... here is a more advanced answer.. from me. .. The chlorine generator (also known as salt cell, salt generator, salt chlorinator) uses electrolysis in the presence of dissolved salt (NaCl) to produce hypochlorous acid (HCIO) and sodium hypochlorite (NaClO), which are the sanitizing agents already commonly used in swimming pools. As such, a saltwater pool is not actually chlorine-free; it simply utilizes a chlorine generator instead of direct addition of chlorine.

More filtration, more chlorine, balance pH, add conditioner, more filtration, more filtration and more filtration.

No, a saltwater pool is already a chlorine pool. ALL CHLORINE EVENTUALLY BECOMES SALT. Every pool that has ever had chlorine in it has salt in it.

A "generator" converts the salt in the water to chlorine. A "chlorinator" uses chlorine tabs and as they dissolve chlorine is introduced to the water.

you have to buy a saltwater generator from a pool store or intex, then I use water softening salt i got mine at home depot it takes about 4 days for it to dissolve with your pump running constantly then turn your generator on that's all you have to do i love my saltwater pool

Here is the deal. a "salt water pool" IS a chlorine pool. Only difference is, on a chlorine pool u add chlorine. In a salt pool u add salt and a "Salt Generator" turns the sslt into chlorine... so really both pools use chlorine.... Just saves u the trouble of messing with chlorine and chlorine shocks..

You are still typically using a salt-water generator to generate chlorine for most saltwater pools, so you are effectively still using chlorine. In effect, chlorine is still the sanitizer. You still need to pay for and haul salt and you typically need to replace a cell every 3-5 years at a cost of about $800. Then there are the potential harmful health effects of chlorine and corrosion to your pool and pool equipment.

yes running the filter while swimming helps the filtration process. Also if the pool is saltwater then the system will replace chlorine being used while bathing.

Water filtration is the process through which impurities such as chlorine and sediment are removed from the water.
