ABCs of Salt Pool Care

Salt pools require different pool chemicals and maintenance routines from chlorine-sanitized pools. Read on to find out how you can maintain your salt pool in just three steps!

Typically, salt pool concentrations should be maintained between 3000 and 4000 ppm (parts per million). Please refer to your salt generator’s owner’s manual for manufacturer’s recommended salt levels, which may vary. Most manufacturers recommend that salt levels should not fall below 3000 ppm, as it can reduce the life your generator’s cell electrodes.

Recommended Procedures for Salt Chlorine Generators:

Step 1: Add Salinity Pool Salt to achieve the proper salt level in the swimming pool. A 40 lb. bag will increase salt levels by 480 ppm per 10,000 gallons of pool water. Please refer to the chart in our Pool Care Guide on How to Increase Salt Content in Your Pool for more specifics.

Step 2: In addition to salt generator shocking, shock the pool weekly by adding Salinity Surge Pool Shock at 1 lb. per 10,000 gallons.

Step 3: At least 12 hours after shocking the pool, add the initial dose of Salinity Multi-Purpose Pool Algaecide at 9 oz. per 10,000 gallons of water. Maintain pool by adding 4 oz. of Salinity Multi-Purpose Algaecide per 10,000 gallons of pool water weekly.

Note: Please read all bottles, labels and observe all warnings and printed precautions.
