home depot 50lb bags are $3.48 for the morton salt solar kiln dried at least in seattle Look for 99.8% pure Sodium Chloride (NaCl) without Iodine or the Anti-Caking additive, Yellow Prussiate of Soda (YPS). Iodine and YPS can cause a localized tint to the water or yellow staining on the cementitious finish if allowed to rest undissolved on the finish for extended periods of time. AutoSoft Plus™ is blended with the proper amount of stabilizer to maintain a proper level within the recommended range when added according to the salt chart on the box. Granular Salt, Table Salt, Solar Salt or Water Conditioner Pellets can also be used but will have different dissolve rates. If the salt you use contains Iodine or YPS, constant brushing will help the dissolve rate and prevent staining due to the additives in

the salt. Ensure that the salt you use contain a minimum purity of 99% Sodium Chloride (NaCl).

NOTE: Do not use Rock Salt due to its high levels of impurities.

One can buy pools and spas from Argos. They offer a good range of different outdoor and indoor swimming pools and spas that can be purchased. Alternatively they can also be bought from an online company called EastGate Pools.

A fiberglass swimming pool can be purchased from specific retailers that deal entirely in swimming pools. Most of the time these are brick-and-mortar establishments and may vary from location to location. However, online sites such as Water World Pools, or All-In-One Pools, do sell and ship fiberglass pools.
