Just add Chlorine manually to the pool... I recomend liquid chlorine, because if you decide to replace the cell the calcum from powder chlorine will clog up the cell... How much chlorine should you add depends on so many factors eg the size of the pool, the water temp, how much you use the pool ect, ect. Its All trial & Error. where i live, in east Sydney Australia for an average pool (50,000L) i tell people 1L a day in summer & 1L every 2-4 Days in winter. but you really should get a test kit & test the chlorine every few day till you work out the chlorine demand of your pool....

What is better salt water pool or chlorine pool?

If you have a salt water pool then you have a chlorine generating system. In a salt water pool through an electric process, the sodium turns into Sodium Hypochlorite.
