    new to board. I have a closing question?

    last year we had our pool reblastered.
    i cant remember what i added to the pool in addition to the closing kit.
    this year when i open it the water was just fine…a little on the ph low side but otherwise good.

    what i noticed in the debri bag of our pool cleaner was a flakey snow like substance. I can't recall what i added to the pool before closing but i think i added sodium chloride flakes recommended by my local pool supply store. unfortunatley they have closed the business this year. im going to miss them alot…thye helped me a great deal with reblastering pool care.

    My question is this…does adding sodium chloride flakes at closing to a reblastered pool help maintain the water throughout the winter?

    No.

    I would give it a few days and see if the flaky stuff no longer shows up.

    For us to help more we will need to have a full set of test results. See: http://www.troublefreepool.com/pool-...efore_you_post

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.
