    salt settle on the bottom of pool?

    Newbie question here. If I don't run my pool over a week. Is it possible for salt and rest of the chemical to settle on the bottom of the pool?

    If the salt is already in solution (mixed in no crystals showing) then it will stay in solution assuming you are in the 3000 ppm salt concentration range. Same for the other chemicals, once mixed in they will stay with the possible exception of high calcium and other high metal levels.

The SLAM process is not finished until: 1. CC < 0.5 ppm, 2. An OCLT < 1.0 ppm and, 3. The water is crystal clear.
