Pool maintenance is (admittedly) not our first language, but we don’t call ourselves water experts for nothing.

So, when it comes to pool salt and maintaining your salt water, what should you know?

Q: I use a salt water chlorine generator. How do I test the salt levels in my swimming pool? Is it important to test the salt level often?

A: For homeowners with pools that use salt water generators, we recommend testing your salt water levels monthly, or any time there is a suspected problem.

One of the easiest ways to test salt levels is by using a test strip kit. Specifically, you will need a salt titrator test strip — which should be available through any pool dealer that sells salt water chlorine generators.

Another effective way of testing the salt level in your pool is with a liquid titration kit, where each drop is equivalent to so many parts per million of chlorine. Liquid kits are going to be more expensive than the test strips, but they will also provide you with more accurate results.
