How much Salt does Salt & Swim 3C require?

Salt & Swim 3C works best with approximately 3,200 ppm salt which is roughly the equivalent of one teaspoon per gallon. However, Salt & Swim 3C will operate with salt levels anywhere from 2,700 to 3,400 ppm.


Is Salt & Swim 3C safe for any in-ground pool finish?

Yes. Hayward recommends pool owners consult with their pool builder and/or a qualified stone professional to evaluate the materials used around their pools. Some more porous, natural stones may need to be treated or sealed. Please consult your builder and/or qualified stone dealer.

Yes. Salt chlorination can be added to any existing pool without changing the equipment on the pool pad.


When switching to salt chlorination on an existing pool which was treated with traditional chemical chlorine, does the pool need to be emptied?

No. The pool owner should simply bring a sample of the pool water to a local pool store to be tested. The chlorinator's optimal salt level is 3,200 ppm, which is roughly the equivalent to a teaspoon per gallon. The water should be properly balance before switching to salt chlorination. Water balance addresses pH, total alkalinity and calcium hardness levels in the pool.


Does Salt & Swim 3C operate at low flow rates?

Yes. It operates at flow rates as low as 15GPM.
