I just signed up and we just had our saltwater pool finished a couple of months ago and love it. I'm still trying to learn about the chemistry and figured out test strips and stuff. We've gotten some really heavy rains so I had to add some salt and it's still only at 3100ppm after 80lbs (even cleaned out the salt cell) and am wondering about salt loss.
Anyway, here's the question and it's probably a weird one but I'm curious. I've read that the salt only leaves the pool when water is removed, splash out, or heavy rains. And I've read that the salt is converted to free chlorine and that the chlorine eventually turns back to salt. However, I've also read that you need cyanuric acid to stabilize the free chlorine so the sun doesn't eliminate the free chlorine from the pool. So, if the sun burns the free chlorine out of the pool, is that free chlorine no longer there to be able to turn back into salt? And, if so, wouldn't that reduce the salt?
Sorry if that sounds stupid but trying to understand it all. I couldn't find that in the forum so I figured I'd ask.
