    salt water qUestion

    Can adding sodium bicarbonate increase salt levels?

    Yes, but not an efficient way to increase salt levels in a pool.

    I agree.
    What i am learning is a new pool pilot system.
    The muriatic acid is bringing down the alkalinity quicker than the Ph. So in response sodium is
    being added to counter the drop in alkalinity. And that in turn is taking up the salt.
    ...thank you for the reply. I do have some learning ahead of me with this pool pilot.

    No problem. Is this a new plaster pool? Any water features? What are your current test results. With a SWG you want to run a lower TA, so you don;t have to constantly fight rising PH. SWGs, water features and new plaster surfaces all tend to raise PH.
