Latest News About Salt Water Pools
Salt water pools used to be the exception, but now they are becoming a widely accepted method of water treatment in swimming pools, mainly due to the fact there were a lot of misconceptions that have been cleared up, and technology has come a long way. A lot of builders are now making salt water systems standard on their new pools.

As we turn the page on the calendar, many of us will be faced with getting the pool ready for the season. Depending upon your local climate, this can be a big deal or a non-event. For the warm-weather folks, I'll just remind you to crank up your run times as the water gets warmer. That, plus the usual advice to keep the pH in line and your filter clean. If you are lucky enough to have a salt water pool, check your salinity to see if the winter rains have diluted your salt content and add salt as required.
For the pool owners in cold climate areas, opening the pool is more involved and a great deal will depend on whether or not the pool has been covered and prepared properly for the winter.
If your pool was nice and clean at the time of shut down, and you kept it covered over the winter, your job should be easy. My best advice has to do with the timing. Open your pool while the water is still very cool; sixty degrees or less. And most important, don't remove the cover until you get some sanitizer in the water. It may look pretty good when you peak under the cover but there are probably a lot of microscopic algae plants just waiting for 'ole sol to green them up. Leave the cover on. Fill your pool to the proper level, set your filter valve to "recirculate" or "bypass" and turn on your pump. Ensure that your skimmers are free and clear and that you are getting good circulation. If you have one, turn on your salt system control to 100% or hit the Super-Chlor button. After five or six hours, check your pH and balance as necessary. If you do not have a salt system, now is the time to add some chlorine. For this purpose, I like the granular Di-Chlor. It is a little pricey but it will not drive you crazy trying to fix the pH. It also contains Cy-acid, the stabilizer that will protect your chlorine from the sun when you do remove the cover. If you can feel slime on the side of your pool, I also recommend some high-quality algaecide, but only after the Di-Chlor has been in the water for 8-12 hours.
Allow your pump to run continuously for 48 hours. Now you can remove your pool cover and turn your filter valve to the "filter" position. Continue to run your pump for another 48 hours, keeping an eye on the pressure guage and clean the filter medium as necessary. When everything looks good, return to your normal filtration times and next month, you can tell your neighbor how it's done as he or she slaves away with the scrub brush and chemical army.
Enjoy your pool!
