- 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.by walmartrocks88798/11/2015Was this answer helpful? (2) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- 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.by ExpertCamper8/11/2015Was this answer helpful? (4) (0)Was this answer helpful?

- 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.by InjuredCop7/21/2015Was this answer helpful?

- 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.by mdiorio6/29/2015Was this answer helpful?

- you should get an accurate salt reading first then that will help you determine how much to add .it also depend on what type of chlorine generator you have some call for 3000 ppm other call for 4500 to 5000ppm.i use a digital salt meter to test thisby oldsboy728/16/2015Was this answer helpful?

- You do not add all the salt at one time. A professional pool dealer can tell you why and exactly HOW much to add at one time. Or, you can try to ask a Wal-Mart associate.by misslucy09097/21/2015Was this answer helpful? (1) (4)Was this answer helpful?

- My 16x32x52" pool contains 1,4364 gallons of water and required 365 pounds of salt to start upby louisandsteph8/16/2015Was this answer helpful? (6) (1)Was this answer helpful?
Q. When using Morton Pool Salt, about how much salt do you put in a pool before starting the salt water system in an Intex 18'x48" above ground pool?
- 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.by ExpertCamper7/24/2015Was this answer helpful? (8) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- 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.by 246maryh8/11/2015Was this answer helpful? (10) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- 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.by Ocnamor5/3/2015Was this answer helpful?

- 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.by InjuredCop5/12/2014Was this answer helpful?

- 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.by brpz31074/2/2012Was this answer helpful? (12) (0)Was this answer helpful?
