    "Salt One" Pool Protect Product - What is it?

    I've been testing and balancing my water using this site -- thanks for all the help. I'm now purging some of the old products that were left by the original owner (chlorine pucks etc) and came across a product called "Salt One". It says it is "Pool Protect" by a company called "AquaPro" in Ottawa. It's in a big 5 kg (11 lb) tub. Cost was $45.00. I can't figure out what is in the product and if I would have use for it. The specific content(s) aren't listed. It says the following on the label:

    - All-in-one support for salt generator
    - designed to be used once in the spring after pool opening
    - increases sanitizer efficiency protecting from UV rays
    - produces water softness
    - delays corrosion
    - reduces the wear of your salt generator cells

    The pool store wrote the following on the top of the tub for the previous owner: Add 4 full cups to the skimmer. Wait one hour then add 4 more cups to skimmer.

    I wondered if it was stabilizer, but it doesn't look as granular as the stabilizer that I have used in the past. More like a white powder with some chunks.

    What is it? Should I keep it? Use it?

    My current levels are as follows:
    FC = 4
    CC = 0
    pH = 7.5
    TA = 85
    CH = 310
    CYA = approx 35 or 40
    Water looks great.

    I've tried to find the company contact info to call them, but haven't had any luck.

    Sounds like CYA/Stabilizer to me. Not sure I would use it... How old is it?

    Sounds like it's a combination of things. Is there a website listed on the container?

    There's no website nor phone number listed. I can't seem to figure out the manufacturer contact info. Maybe I'll call the Sani-Marc people listed above.

    The stuff at least 3+ years old. Maybe I'll just toss it. I also wonder if it is a combo product -- stabilizer plus other stuff...

    They're probably going to tell you to toss it since it's more than a year old anyway.
