Most of the time after the person comes to service the system they add the water softener to the system and for the next few days it has a salty taste. But sometimes the system does not tone it down which means they have added to much.

If you are using a water softener unit uses salts to combat may be that the ratio is too high for the salt tablets.if not it could be you are using a soda bicarbonate toothpaste before showering in your routine and this can give the salty effect .

Who shall take Potassium chloride?

Potassium Chloride (KCl) is used as a No Sodium Salt alternative to regular Salt which is Sodium Chloride (NaCl). The people who take it are people who want to reduce their sodium intake, commonly people with high blood pressure. If you are planning to use it for cooking be sure to reduce the amount you use and to taste as you apply it because KCl actually tastes saltier than NaCl.

I used to use a lot of salt but lately everything, except sweet things, tastes way too salty. The only things that taste right are sweet things. Everything else is off in some way.

This is good. The average person consumes way too much salt, and most processed food has lots of salt, sometimes with sugar as well !

If you are now picking up the excess salt in food, it means you have decreased your intake and are no longer desensitised. It is best for your blood pressure and kidneys.

My water is cloudy and says salt level seems salty enough as I can feel and taste it. Is there chemicals I am supposed to be adding or does this system keep it clean all alone just by adding...

While your problems are likely greater than just the salt content in the water I can tell you that if you feel, or more importantly can taste the salt in the water your salt level is WAY TO HIGH, not low. Have the salt level confirmed with an independent test either at a pool store or using a salt tester.

Give me an examples of scientific method

For example....

problem: you want to know the ingredients lacking on the food you cooked...

hypothesis: you thought of a reason on why this happened... for example you proposed that salt is lacking because the food you cooked is very sweet...

experiment: you added salt in the food then tasted it again....

analysis: you found out that the tastes became balanced and improved...

conclusion: so you concluded that it so sweet so salt must be added to balance the taste...

Another example:
Scientific method:

Observation - you see something (say an ant on a kitchen table)
Question - (you ask, "Why is it there")
Hypothesis - you propose a reason (he's searching for food)
Experiment - you put food where he can reach it
Analysis - he doesn't take it, so you need a new hypothesis

You use the scientific method every time you test a hypothesis

Hope this simple example could help you to solve your problem. Mam/Sir don't forget me to rate me up I really appreciate what ratings you have given to me. Thanks a lot and God Bless.

Intex salt water chlorinator I added a higher flow pump and chlorine levels seem low no matter how many hours I run the chlorinator

your pump has nothing to do with chlorine generation.
You need to get a salt test kit that reads in #'s not colors.
Now get your salt to 3000ppm or as close to it as you can.
The amount of salt reccomended in the manual is just a starting point
any lower than 2800 and you will not produce enough sanitizer and over 3600 and your pool can go cloudy, taste bad, and rust metal parts

High ph, algea, salty taste

You are going to need to buy chemicals anyway (acid for sure and probably algaecide) so find a good pool store tech and have them test your water and recommend the proper doses.

In summary though, you should not taste the salt in the pool and being able to means the salt content is to high. Chlorine generators will not work if the salt is to high and the fix is to drain water and dilute the remaining water until the salt content is no higher than max. No chlorine could explain the algae.

Generators also cause the pH to rise over time so you will need to keep acid on hand to counteract that.

My saltwater pool tastes very salty, but my intex saltwater pump keeps saying low salt. I have to clean the cell everyday or it will not operate properly because the cell gets covered with white buildup...

Your salt is way to high if you can taste it. You will need to dilute with fresh water until you get the salt back down and then clean the cell for continued use.

Too much salt

Don't know about this model, but if the salt pickup is inline with the water the water may not be flowing in fast enough and the reduced pressure may be letting the salt in. Anyway, final rinse should remove the salt. Try putting two clean glasses (no salt taste) in the unit, one upright and the other down. Run the unit with no soap and stop it after each cycle and check the glasses for salt. If you still have it after each cycle, try filling the unit from the sink manually before the final rinse. If salt's still present, something's leaking
