How much salt...Calculator?

Posted by radrmark (My Page) on

Hi Everyone,

We drained our pool recently for some repairs and just refilled it. Late last summer the pool was completed and start-up was done by a professional. This time I thought I would do it myself and have balanced Chlorine and pH right away. Now I would like to bring my salt level up to around 3000 ppm and I can't seem to find any calculations for how much to add. Does anyone have a per gallon calculation to increase salt ppm? If you don't have a generic calculation any feedback on how much you add would be helpful. Our pool is ~35,000 gallons. Thanks!

Go to the web page at the link below...scroll down about half way and there is a pretty neat salt calculator.

Page 11 has the chart. This is for autopilot, but salt is salt and gallons are gallons.
