Seem to taste salt when taking a shower. what could the problem be?


If you are using a water softener unit ...it uses salts to combat hardness.it 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 .

My water is cloudy and says salt level low.....it 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.

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.
