    Water a little bit salty

    Pool has been beautiful all summer. Thanks, but wife thought the water was getting a little bit salty. Is this normal? All I have been putting in for 2 summers is 12.5% liquid chlorine and MA. Will it continue to get saltier year after year using only liquid chlorine?

    However, rainfall and refill water usually cancels that out.

    That's probably what's going on. We only got 3.5 inches of rain this past year.
