I put the salt into my big leaf rake skimmer head and walk around the pool with the skimmer head in the water.. Another thing I do also is fill the leaf rake skimmer head with salt and put it in front of the return jet.

I have a salt system and just throwing into the pool itself is fine...it disolves quickly with no prolem. and home depot has the bags for HALF the price!!!! Thatss a huge savings!

Saltwater in my pool

Postby 01indianbob » Sun 03 May, 2009 13:04

I assist in the caretaking of a 151,000 gallon commercial pool. It is located close...very close to a salt water bayou. About a week ago, the rains caused the bayou to swell to the point of flooding the pool. Yep, I had crabs in my pool! It took some time to backflush and clean the pool back to its super clean self. I never once stopped to think about the saltwater in the pool, and any damage it would cause until I got in the pool yesterday and got saltwater in my mouth (pool's not open yet, and I was cleaning). So, I have to ask in hopes that someone can tell me...Is it imperetive that I get this saltwater out of the pool, or will mother nature take care of this through the rain process? Sounds kind of dumb to me, but I have to ask anyway.

Pinch-A-Penny has salt for around $7.50 per 40# bag. Use the finest granular salt you can find so that the salt dissolves the fastest. Introduce the sale by spreading it around the pool. Sweep the pool 24 hours later to assure distribution.

Irs2,
when you find the salt let me know too as I also cannot find it anywhere.

Am setting up my pool late this year as the weather has been cool. Decided to go with the salt system this year as everything I read about it made it sound awesome. I was curious where to find the salt also. You can get it at Sam's Club (Morton Pool Salt, 40#) for $5.88. Hope that helps! Know I'm a bit late, but in case anyone is still searching.....

Get the salt from your Local Pool Company, do not use Morton's or Diamond or Dixie Crystals for all have unwanted additives that can damage your system and it also last half as long as a product called Aquasalt which is made in the USA and is tale Quailty.

I have been taking care of Commerical Pools for 20 years.
