    Best Type of Salt For Pool

    Later this week I am switching to a saltwater pool. What is the best kind of salt for my pool and where do I find it at the best price?
    The size of my pool in gallons 29,453. The pool is inground and Pebble Tec. I have a Pentair IC40 Salt Cell.
    The pool was finished and filled on 10/11/13 and I am using a TF-100 Water Testing Kit
    The pool has a "12" raised spa with a negative edge spillway. The pool cleaner is a Pentair Legion Platinum Grey

    I get Morton's pool salt at Wal Mart for $6.91 for a 40 lb bag. Academy Sports also has it for around the same price.

    Solar salt from any hardware store is cheaper than pool salt. Pool Salt is just ground up a little more.

    Add the salt when the kids are playing in the pool, and they can get it dissolved ... Diamond Day
