Good afternoon all,

I'm very close to pulling the trigger. I have to throw a surprise bday party for my wife, then SWG time. Is there a "better" brand or type of salt? I see all sorts at big box stores. Or is there a better route?

I like Mortons Pool Salt. Some Walmarts sell it for around $6.50/40 lb bag. Diamond Crystal seems to be ok. Don't buy Clorox pool salt.

Some folks like to use water softener salt. Just make sure it is 100% pure salt.

Thanks -- I look forward to not having to add chlorine every day. It's been 1 million degrees in Florida. Chlorine burns faster than a Norwegian at our beach. ;)
I use mortons rock salt. BTW, its not a bad idea to shut off your SWG when you dump a bag in until it has dissolved and circulated awhile.
