    Does salt change any of your chlorine or other chemical levels

    My initial test was off (of course! pool store) I have a bit more than 2000 but it will go down over summer.

    I just dumped the bags in while I was in the pool, walked around and stirred it up really well and that's it.

    I can taste it, but it's not strong like gargling with salt water or when you are in the ocean. And, the water has a clarity and shimmer that is definitely different.
    Question does/or did it change any of your chlorine/or and other chemical levels ? Should I watch and test for anything after adding salt other than salt

    Adding salt does not change the target levels of chlorine or anything else, nor does it affect the usage of chlorine or anything else. You do need to continue your regular testing.
