I was sold this salt as a replacement for ice melt to put on my icy sidewalks. Walmart was sold out of the ice melt and suggested this. I dumped it on my ice and it didn't melt it. Maybe you have to put it down before the storm and it won't stick where you put the ice. Will have to try that before the next storm.

A Salt that's VERY easy to spread & dissolve!

I know that I am doing a review on 'salt' & just how much can a person say about salt. Right? Well, read on to find out. It just might suprise you! LOL! We got this to use in our pool since we just bought a chlorine generator. The booklet that came with the C.G. said we'd need about 2 1/2 bags to get our pool's salt level just right. However, we only needed to add one & a half bags until the C.G. was producing our pool's chemicals just right. I'm not sure if that was due to our water's mineral content already, or if the Morton's Pool Salt is just that much better than a generic type brand of pool salt. Either way we have been very happy with the results we received from this brand of salt. It spread throughout the pool VERY easily, and dissolved SO MUCH faster than what the C.G.'s instruction booklet stated it would take for salt to dissolve. It dissolved in the pool in under an hour versus the 24 hours the booklet said it would take for salt to dissolve in the pool. Also, it was very free flowing straight out of the bag. It was not all packed together, or caked up, or in large & hard chunks as you would have expected it to have been in such a large bag of salt. (There were however the occasional marble or golf ball sized chunks here & there, but they broke apart almost as soon as you tried to pick them up. Plus, the second they hit the water they would break apart immediately anyway, so they few that were in the bags did not pose any problems for us at all. If you are going to be using a chlorine generator for your pool, and you need salt for your water I would REALLY RECOMMEND buying this brand of salt as oppossed to any other brands you may be able to find/get. Even if you might be able to find another brand a few cents cheaper. It'll definately be worth it for you in the long run. Oh, and although you can use water softener pellets with C.G.'s too, I wouldn't recommend it as it will take much longer for those to dissolve than it will for the salt. Which in return then also extends the time out before you will be able to even begin using your C.G., or even begin to start swimming & enjoying your pool. I hope all of this information will help you out a bit!

  • A. After the initial treatment requiring several bags, the filter's instructions will tell you how much to use for the pool size, it's only necessary to add salt if the system signals that the salt level is low. I've had mine for 3 weeks and have not had to add any more salt.

  • A. Once you have reached the required concentration of salt (3000 parts per million) you rarely need to add salt as it doesn't evaporate. You only really need to add salt if you have had to top up your pool with fresh water, and then only from water that has spilled over the side or been carried out on the bathers as they exit the pool. As the water evaporates from the sun, the salt is left behind and doesn't affect the amount of salt in the system. In short only add salt if the 'low salt' alarm goes off, and then add between 20 - 50 lbs depending on the size of your pool. It is easier to add more salt if required, than it is to remove it if the concentration gets too high.

  • A. If you have a chlorine generator & that is why you need the salt, then you only need to add the salt once. It's not like other chemicals that a person would use in a pool w/o a CG where they would have to always be adding them every few days or so. With a CG you add the salt to your water one time, and the CG does the rest of the chemical work for you. Hope this helps.

  • A. You use the salt upon first filling of your pool. Since salt doesn't evaporate or get used up, you only need to replace salt when you add water to your pool due to back-washing, evaporation, spillage or leaking. Wal-Mart sells a Salt Water test kit to let you know how much salt is in your pool. Just keep an eye on Ph levels and you'll be fine.

  • A. According to the Intex salt table, a 18' x 48" pool holds 6423 gallons of water. The amount of salt required for start up is 160 lbs to give a concentration of 3000 parts per million. Ensure all the salt has dissolved (run the pump for 24 hrs) before turning on the saltwater system. As long as the low salt alarm doesn't go off you're fine. Remember it's easier to add more salt if required that it is to take it out if there is too much.

  • A. I have a 15x48 intex and I pored 120 lbs in and stir the water with the skimmer and turned the punp on for 24 hours then turn on the salt system with the pump on and its ready for the summer never need to add salt. Unhook the salt system every two weeks and soak it in vinagar, then its ready all summer.

  • A. The manual states 135 lbs. I tried to do 3 bags at 120 lbs, but PPM was low. Go with the 135 lbs which is 3 bags plus 15lbs out of the 40 lbs of a 4th bag. You can keep the extra from 4th bag to add when salt level gets low, which can happen after a lot of rainfall, and you have to drain some of the pool water.

  • A. If it's an easy set, then it would be an AVERAGE of 135 lbs, if it is a straight sided, metal framed pool then it would be an average of 160 lbs. (I say average because it could take as little as half of what is called for to as much as one & a half the amount called for. It all depends upon the chemical & mineral make up of the water your pool is starting out with. For instance, our's called for 95-100lbs of salt, yet we only needed 65lbs for our's to run properly & produce the right amount of chemicals for us. And we swim in it everyday for several hours. So to keep our levels correct, we need it to generate more chlorine than most people with pools our size. I say that because we have a very heavy daily use of between anywhere from 2-4 adults & 5-7 kids that use the pool for around 4 to 6 hours of every single day. In addition to that, it also sits in direct sunlight 100% from sunrise to sunset. So, with everything combined, our pool really uses up the chlorine exceptionally quick. However, with us using the Morton brand pool salt combined with the Intex Chlorine Generator, we have had NO chlorine issues whatsoever, and we only have to run the generator 2 hours every evening & we keep consistantly perfect chlorine levels.

  • A. The salt water system manual should have a chart in it. Just look up the kind & size of your pool and it should tell you how much to put in. I have a 15' X 48' Metal Framed Intex pool (4440 gal.) and it requires 110 lbs. of salt. You may also need to add more as the swimming season goes, it just depends on how much water loss. Hope this helped.
