    ADVICE IF SALTY WATER FROM WELL IS SUITABLE

    Hello guys,
    Please consult if my water is suitable for a swimming pool.
    The pool is near the sea and the water is from a well, so the water that comes out is a bit salty.

    Conductivity: 3230 ?S/cm
    Chlorine Ions: 405mg/l (question: is this the FC?)
    Total Hardness: 405ppm CaCO3
    Total Salts: 2080 ppm

    Thank you.

    The salt should not be a problem, as many put salt in up to those levels to improve water feel. Your issue is likely to be CH. you will have to closely control pH to limit scaling. You do not list the pH of your fill water.

    That water's fine...the salt content is not very high, and the calcium hardness will be a portion of the total hardness, so also OK. FC is free chlorine, and you won't have any of that in your well.
