    Welcome to TFP!!!

    I always have used solar salt ... much cheaper than so-called pool salt (which is just ground a little finer).

    Leave the SWG turned off. Just dump the bags into the pool (NOT the skimmer) and brush (or let the kids play with it). Run pump 24 hours to mix and turn on the SWG.
