Would you ever need to put chlorine in a salt water pool?

Yes. Just becasue you are using salt, doesn't mean you are not producing chlorine, so if your chlorine levels are low and you need to bring them up, you can add chlorine for a fster result.

You would need to install a water filtration system that also removes Chlorine from the water. Well water normally does not have chlorine it it so the source of the contamination would need to be determined and removed, or a new well drilled.

The jobs that will need to know about chlorine are jobs that deal with the water flow.

If the chlorine generator inst run sufficient time or there is a period where an exesive amount of bio material enters the water a litle additional chlorine may at times be an advantage rather then run the filtration equipment longer.

Chlorine is not nutrient we need in our body, like other vitamins. Chlorine is needed to keep diseases out of water.

You need to buy a chlorine-free bottle, to get rid of the chlorine from the water. Since no fish can live inside chlorine. And chlorine is mixed with tap water.

no! chlorine is a harmful and harzardess chemical, in order for any type or fish or any anphibian it need either sea water or fresh water. if you put a fish in chlorine it would die. dont reccomend doing it.

It depends on how you are adding the chlorine. As elemental chlorine, you would need around 40000 ounces of water to one of chlorine; as hypochlorite (the main ingredient in chlorine bleaches, which are usually 5%) you might only use 200 ounces of water to one ounce of bleach.

no need to shock with chlorine but you still have to maintain it like you would with any other pool of water

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

Chlorine does not need to evaporate from your water if you have freshwater fish. All you need to do is put water conditioner in it. But if you want to evaporate the chlorine leave it sitting out in an open container for an hour and it will evaporate.

You need to treat it because of the chlorine in the water, to much will kill the fish! Keo depends on the amount of water with chlorine you mix with water that has no chlorine. also sunlight takes chlorine out of water so outdoor ponds don't need it Yes, always treat. You can leave out tap water for the chlorine to evaporate out however, chlorine is not the only additve in tap water that is deadly to fish. Chloramine is just as deadly and does not evaporate.

Yes, after all they are chlorine systems. the chlorine is made from the salt in the water. If you are not getting the correct chlorine level you may need to service or replace the salt water chlorinator.

If you want the water to stay clean and disease-free, than dont NEED to use chlorine tablets. you can use the other kinds of chlorine there are.

A chlorine atom wouldn't need to lose anything, but a chlorine ion would need to lose 1

Chlorine is almost 100 % effective in preventing the water borne diseases. Chlorine does not kill the ova and cysts of amoeba and worms. So you need filter the water. You can make water filter by using sand and gravel and water tank. Then you can easily make the water germ free by using chlorine. Alternately you can use the chlorine drops to to purify water in your house. This way the water borne diseases can be prevented by chlorine.

depends on the amount of chlorine dissolved. The freezing point drops as more and more chlorine is added. Check the wikipedia page for freezing point depression for the calculations (and probably the constants that you would need)

Test and balance the water. If your salt generator is not working your chlorine can be low, at this point you will need to add granular chlorine. Also check your stabilizer or cya, without this is your chlorine will evaporate. If your cya is fine and your chlorine is low it may be because you need to clean the cell.

It would take 100,000 liters of water to dilute 1 liter of copper chlorine solution.

You would still need to put chlorine in it because different people pee in it because it is a public pool. So you need to put chlorine in it to keep it clean.

Chlorine bleach is a base so a base and an acid will give you a salt (or ionic compound) and water. In order to come up with the equation for the reaction, you would need the formula of chlorine bleach and of the acid you are reacting it with.

you'll need a water test kit or dip stick test.

Maybe. Salt water pools equipped with chlorine generators, when properly maintained, keep the chlorine at a fairly constant level. This greatly reduces, some say eliminates, the need for an algae preventer like Back Up. So conceivably there would be fewer chemicals in the water. Also there would be less chance of nasties in the water because the chlorine level would not be dipping low, allowing said nasties to grow.

You need to use a water conditioner to neutralize chlorine in the tap water first.

Yes, you need cyanuric acid in a salt water pool. It will preserve your chlorine.
