Why a salt water pool?
Most people believe having a salt water pool is like swimming in the ocean. Nottrue. Salt water pools use the salt to make chlorine. With a salt water pool you will still be using chlorine a toxic chemical to sanitize your pool.
Yes as a mater of fact that is what salt water pool normally is. With a salt water pool there is a electronic salt water chlorinator installed that uses the salt in the water to create chlorine. However if you don't have a salt water chlorinator and prefer the feeling of a salt water pool then there is no reason not to add salt to the pool as well as keeping up the chlorine yourself.
There is two types of pools: Chlorinated pools and salt water pools. If you have a salt water pool then yes, you would add salt to the pool.
A Salt water swimming pool, like the iceberg in Sydney. hmmm.... A Salt Water Beach! or a pool in wich someone wurinated in! A: Your answer is old pool water. You will not taste the salt in a salt water system pool! k
Salt water pool filters are the same as fresh water pool filters.
No A salt water pool is in fact also chlorine pool, the difference being that with a salt water pool a salt water chlorinator converts the salt that is in the water into chlorine gas which is then dissolved into the water while the filter is running. the conversion wont have any adverse effects on the pool.
Can you make your own saltwater by just adding salt into your pool and if so how much salt and what type of salt should you use?
No you will not have a salt water pool. yes you will have salt water but the actual electronic plates found in a genrator converts the salt in the water to chlorine to sanitize the pool water. A: You have to have the mechanical device to produce the chlorine in a salt pool. THE SALT A MEANS TO PRODUCE CHLORINE FOR YOUR POOL!
Swimming pool salt not rock salt, sea salt, water softener salt. k
A salt water pool is a chlorine pool. the difference is that in a salt water pool the chlorine is added automatically by a chlorinated that works electronically and with a chlorine pool you have to put the chlorine in your self. Salt water pool are by far the more pleasant to swim in. Chlorine because it will kill germs
Simply put any pool can be a salt water pool, even an above ground pool.
No, a salt water pool does not contain bleach.
stagnet or still water attracts mosquitos weather salt brackish or chlorine Not your pool. A salt water pool IS a chlorinated pool if the system is working properly.
Do you mean to say that you have a fresh water pool with a Chlorine Generator which uses salt? Or do you in fact have a salt water pool? bob...
salt water does provide a lower degree of freezing temperature but the normal amount in a salt water pool is so low that the answer is "not enough to make a difference". Protect your pool and equipment from freezing as you would if it weren't a salt water pool
No. salt water is salt water. it already has salt in it
I don't know, because it is not true the amount of salt that is used in a salt water pool while slightly more corrosive then fresh water (About the same amount of salt as you find in tears) will not cause any appreciable damage to modern pool equipment as it is made for salt water pools, salt water pool being by far the most common pool these days.
You get a salt water chlorinator installed and add the correct amount of salt to the pool advice is available on this from your local pool shop.
No, the pool is wet, your hair will not dry when immersed in water or salt water.
A fresh water swimming pool is a swimming pool that does not use a saltwater chlorinator. A pool that used a salt water chlorinator has salt added to it to so that a salt water chlorinator can electronically convert part of the salt into chlorine. A fresh water pool has chlorine added to it directly either manually or Automatically.
Choose the salt water pool chlorinating system (available at pool shops) Install it or have it installed, toss the required amount of salt in the pool and viola you have a salt water chlorination system. The whole operation should take no more then about 3 hours.
No, you only need to put in the salt and fit the salt water chlorinator. Salt water pools are chlorine pools they make it electronically by converting the chloride into chlorine in the pool
The salt itself in a salt water pool can cause itching
Approximately 90-140 pounds of salt will be enough for 9500 gallons of water in the pool.
You need a salt water chlorinator. A salt water chlorinator is an electronic devise that converts the salt in the water from the pool into chlorine gas that is then absorbed into the water.
simply buy the required amount of salt for the pool from a pool shop or other salt supplier and and toss it in the water.
not salt water, but its better for your health! Salt is not a pool cleaner, it is usually there to make chlorine via a "salt system"
No. The salt is left behind in the pool , with the salt concentration becoming higher.
The usual reason for salt in a pool is for chlorination. Epsom salt won't work with salt/chlorine generators. BUT, you can add epsom salt to your water.
Converting to a salt water pool requires the installation of a chlorine generator, and the salt for the pool water. Salt water pool are in fact chlorine pools the difference lays in the fact that chlorine is produced by running salt water through electrodes that in turn releases chlorine from the salt which is usually Sodium chloride (common salt) It may pay to also look at A new more environmentally friendly and healthier alternative By… Read More
Dilution is the only way to reduce the salt level in your pool. The pool should be tested to determine the current level of salt. The amount of gallons the pool holds and the desired salt level will help you determine how much water needs to be drained out of the pool to allow the addition of fresh water to complete the dilution process.
You test a salt water pool the same as an ordinary pool where it comes to testing the chemical balance of the water. Most importantly check for free chlorine regularly. testing for salt can be done less often as the only thing that causes los of salt is backwashing water being splashed out of the pool and overflowing of the pool in the case of rain.
You can vacuum a salt water pool the same way you would a non salt water pool. If you are vacuuming on the filter setting, your filter will help to clean the debris out of the pool. If you are dealing with a very dirty pool and use the waste setting, you will be wasting some of the water from the pool in the process. Depending on how much water you take out and need… Read More
Backwash's, pool overflowing as a result of rain or overfilling, water being splashed over the side. swimmers taking out water on their body's as they get out of the pool and my dog drinking the pool water.
There is no difference aside from the fact that in a salt water pool salt has been added. the water from the pool is then run through an electronic element that releases chlorine from the salt in the water. The salt water pool needs to be run for x amount of time to enable the creation of enough chlorine. or else extra chlorine can be added to make up for any short fall RB
Why does my Intex salt water pool system keep turning the water brown - goes into the system clear but water exits the system - and into pool - brownish?
Are you using iodized salt or pool salt? I've read that the iodine in the iodized salt will leave yellow staining in the pool.
Yes. A chlorine generator will only work when your pool water has a salinity level of 2700 to 3500 ppm, thereby making it a salt water pool.
No. B T W that does not make it a salt pool. You have to have the salt generator in order to convert the salt to chlorine.
Algae buildup will cause a salt water pool to turn green. A clogged filter will allow the algae to buildup in the pool.
Yes. The water will evaporate, leaving the salt behind. Let the process go on long enough, and you'll have a brine pool of VERY salty water. The only way that salt gets out of the pool is when swimmers track the salt water away as they walk away.
Yes, as the generator creates the sanitizer for the pool, just throwing salt in it won't do anything
Bromine is an additive that you put in a pool to sanitize the water. Chlorine is an additive that you put in a pool to sanitize the water. Salt is added to some pools to allow it to be converted electronically to chlorine with a salt water chlorinator.
Yes there is no need to drain a chlorinated pool to change it to salt water pool all you have to do is add the salt install the new equipment and run it as usual.
To start a salt water pool you will need a salt generator/salt cell which has a unit that is plumbed into your swimming pool system, and a power source for the cell. You would then follow the manufacturer's directions to add salt to your pool until the residual salt level was at typically 2700-3400ppm in your pool. For a typical 25,000 gallon pool this would most likely be between 14-18 40lb bags of salt. You… Read More
I don't believe salt water pools are harmful for dogs. My dogs swim in my swimming pool about everyday during They have had no health problems or injury due to swimming in the salt water pool. I would think a salt water pool would be safer for a dog to swim in than a normal chlorine type pool.
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… Read More
Salt water would create salt water in your pool. You should follow the manufacturer directions and recommendations for the proper amount of salt in your pool, typically 2700-3400ppm (parts per million) for your salt cell to work properly. When you are initially adding salt to a pool, it will take 15-20 bags of salt (at 40lbs) each to gain the residual amount that you need. Once the pool is operational, you will add new salt… Read More
It is not the salt water pool or the salt water that is turning your hair green. It is a poorly maintained pool with a chemical imbalance - pH and total alkalinity out of required parameters.
yes the salt will dry out your insides if you drink a cup it helps a sour throat not to much it doesn't only dehydrate you it kills you No your body has a certain level of salt in it. That includes your blood. Google isotonic solution. Isotonic means equal to body salt levels. An isotonic solution is easier on you than pure water. I have had a salt pool for several years. The salt… Read More
What's the difference between a salt water swimming pool and one that uses chlorine since the salt water breaks down into chlorine anyway?
Salt water does not breakdown into chlorine for a salt water swimming pool unless you have a salt water chlorinator. Other then that many people feel that a salt water pool is a more pleasant feeling environment to swim in. other then that they are both in fact chlorine pools.
Yes, I had hibiscus surrounding my inground salt-water pool. They grew beautifully.
Yes, you need cyanuric acid in a salt water pool. It will preserve your chlorine.
