Recently I found an article on an autopilot site. The quote reads this:
"The main benefit a salt chlorine generator offers is its ability to recycle salt. During the process of electrolysis, as used in a salt chlorine generator to produce chlorine, the chlorine breaks down further into hypochlorous acid and hypochlorite ions, which are sanitizers. After the hypochlorous acid and hypochlorite ions neutralize the contaminants in swimming pool water, they revert to salt, again, only to be broken down into chlorine for another cycle."
I've never heard anything like this before. Is this true, partially true, misleading, etc.? If it recycles the salt then why would you ever need to add salt again. Simply bring it up to 3500ppm and you're set.
Like some clarification on this one.
