You can not just switch to a salt pool by just adding salt. You need the salt generating equipment to do that. Complete instructions accompany salt systems that you would purchase.



Not true, anyone can add salt to soften the water, make it more buoyant etc...just as a water softer. 3000-4000 ppm.

And you can always add Chlorine for sanitization....liquid or granular.

and or floating tablets also have stabilizer to help the chlorine last longer.

The problem with any salt generator is it requires the filter to be on for 8 or more hours a day...a long time and electricity!

so you CAN do without the expense of a generator and still have a salt pool.

Salt water generators remove the sodium from the salt returning pure chlorine to the pool. The purpose is to remove the need to add chlorine bleach or pellets to the pool. The recommended salt loading is often stated by the manufacturer of the system. the amount of water that needs to be circulated for the system to work is actually less than what the sand filter requires. Water softening is NOT a function of this system. If you want a softener an anion/cation softener could be set up but it's not necessary. By adding chlorine to the pool by this method the chlorine content is more evenly dispersed, and less chlorine (salt) is actually needed than what the pellet system uses. Cost effectiveness may be negligible due to increased electrical costs. Generators need to be replaced every 3-5 years due to loading of the ion exchange.

What is the weight of the water in a swimming pool that holds sixty-four cubic meters of water?

64 tons or 64 000 kg or 140800 lbs 1 cubic meter of fresh water is 1000kg or 2200lbs. It actually differs slightly with elevation but this is the general rule. A swimming pool will not consist of pure water (chlorine, urine etc.) and these substances can have different densities than water so the result can vary a tiny bit.
