I have a salt water system and recently had my pool resurfaced. There was no staining. If you put your salt in the skimmer like you we're supposed to there should be no staining, If you put your salt directly into your pool it could stain from the minerals in the salt. If you used table salt there will be much less staining than if you used road salt.


You should NEVER use road salt or table salt. Wrong chemical make up! Follow directions on the "pool salt" bag. The salt goes into the pool and not the skimmer!! You must brush any salt that lingers on the floor until it is mostly dissolved. DO NOT add salt until the water has filtered for at least 24 to 36 hrs. or that recommended by the manufacturer or pool builder. Do not rely on other people to tell you what needs to be done. GO to the source -- builder - manufacturer. You should not have staining if the above basics are followed. Additionally, you must run the standard pool equipment for about 2 weeks or more. This gives the plaster time to cure properly. The salt system can and most likely be installed by the builder as he installs the pump and filter. The salt system unit will not be turned on until the plaster has cured. After the cure you must follow procedures on the proper start-up of the salt system.

Well it is advisable to not to have very hot or very cold things (ice creams) immediately after filling, especially after silver amalgam fillings, as the material requires certain time to set. Eating ice creams immediately after fillings may cause some sensitivity. But with newer materials like composites which sets immediately, rate of feeling sensitivity is being reduced. But still it is better to not to have ice creams immediately after filling.

It can cause seals to leak if you overfilled it. Drain the excess fluid out immediately, before you ever start the engine.
