Online Pool Saltwater Calculators

For Chlorine Generators


How much salt should you put in your swimming pool? Provided you have a chlorine generator -- that thing that turns salt into chlorine -- you're going to need to calculate the correct amount of salt to add to your swimming pool. You can't just salt it liberally, like it's a big, juicy slab of steak on the barbecue. We've assembled a list of saltwater calculators -- some online, some that are cell phone apps -- to help you get it right.

The list is alphabetical.

L & J Pools Salt Calculator

This is kind of a "basics" online calculator, but should do the job. There's no way to get back to the site's main page, should you want to go there.

Northwest Wholesale Pool Salt Calculator

Another online calculator, somewhat scaled down.

Pool Water Salinity Info and Calculator

Online calculator from CSG Network also includes trivia facts, like The Red Sea is the saltiest sea in the world, at 4.25%, while The Baltic Sea is the least salty at .7%.

The Pool Calculator

This is the iPhone app, which is available for purchase and is handier than dragging your laptop or PC out to your pool area to do the calculations for chemicals and pH levels.
