Foam can come from: 1. Soap 2. Certain algaecides 3. Organic debris Answer: Soap- Thoroughly rinse toys and swimsuits before allowing them in the pool. This is a good practice anyway, especially if they have been used in any "natural" water (pond, lake, ocean) since that can introduce things much worse than soap to your pool (ie: Red Algae) Algaecides- Inexpensive "...alkyl-dimethyl..." type algaecides will foam. Upgrade to a non-foaming "poly" type. Also, avoid copper algaecides and avoid the green hair. Any foaming algaecide currently in the water will steadily break down and go away. Organic stuff- By the time you can see algae it has been growing in the water for some time. This can foam if the water is churned up (aerated). Try a good dose of CHLORINE SHOCK (not non-chlorine shock). This should burn-off the organics! If your salt-generator has a "shock" cycle, that might work but "shocking" in the truest sense means QUICKLY raising the chlorine level in the water. With the generators I'm familier with, they shock by simply running longer giving you a higher chlorine level but at a slower rise to that level. Algae can develop a resistance to this slower method.
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.
Yes you can add chlorine to a salt generated pool. But if you are using a Calcium Hypochlorite you must turn the salt generator OFF for 24 hours and premix it (1 pound at a time in a five gallon plastic bucket) then pour it in the pool. You should not have to add any chlorine tablets to the pool, however if you do it is best to put it into a feeder after the cell. However if you have to add chlorine tablets to the pool to supplement either your unit is way undersized or there is a problem with the generator.
A salt water pool is a chlorine pool. The difference is that in a normal fresh water pool you have to add the chlorine as it is required. In the case of the salt water pool salt is added to the pool which is int urn run through a chlorine generator that is installed on the pipe leading from the filter to the pool. The chlorine generator electronically separates chlorine gas out of the salt water which then dissolves into the water automatically maintaining chlorine levels. The adidion of salt to the water makes it more pleasant to swim in and you are spared having to handle and store chlorine at home. but the problem is you are still swimming in Chlorine and now you are also swimming in sodium.
It's doubtful that the problem is related to the salt or the chlorine generator, assuming that the pool was a chlorine pool before the installation of the system. If it was a Biguanide pool, that might explain it but generally the reaction is grey and cloudy, not brown. If the pool was turned off for an extended period of time, it is more likely that something came out of the filter and plumbing. You can email with a better description as to pool type, how old, what you were using before the salt system, and how long the pool was down, etc. for a more complete answer. email@example.com
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.
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..
To give you an accurate answer, it's important to know how many gallons are in the pool, how high is your Free Available Chlorine (FAC), and what is your Combined Chlorine Reading. Is pool enclosed and protected from sun etc? Is your chlorine generator working properly? You could simply shut down the generator and test your pool everyday at the same time. Keep records of pH, Free Chlorine, Combined Chlorine, Alkalinity, etc. It's important that you maintain a proper pH at ALL TIMES.
