Chlorine vs salt

Postby Bill Belanger » Sat 06 Jun, 2009 08:03

This year we eliminated the chlorine "frog" and installed a salt chlorine generator. The water is clear and clean but doesn't seem to be as "crystal" clear as with the chlorine. Is this normal or do I need to keep working away at it? For the past 5 years when the water began to cloud a little, I'd hit it with chlorine and it would go crystal again. I've tried shocking it with chlorine but just can't get it that last 5% of clearness.

Thanks in advance

It is hard to get crystal clear water without using chlorine, but you should continue with salt in the appropriate levels. That should do it over time. :o
