Salt water pool maintenance

We are planning on relocating to STX in about a year but are actively looking to purchase a home with a pool in advance and rent it until we can get there. How often does a salt water pool need to have its levels checked? Weekly, monthly? Are there companies that can maintain for us and if so, can you share approximate cost? Thank you in advance for any info you can provide.

Salt water pools are very easy to maintain. There are several pool service companies on St. Croix. I like dealing with Lenn from AquaTek 340-642-0519. Very professional.

Most salt water generators monitor the amount of salt in the water once calibrated.

Here, the only way we lose salt is via overflow from rain or splash from swimmers.

Right now we have to add water as the evaporation rate is very high.

Things get screwed up chemical wise from time to time but salt water pool is the way to go.

Little muriatic acid every now and then is all mine ever takes.

Might be a silly question, but do you fill it with regular (rain) water & add salt after pool construction, or fill it with sea water? If so, how do you get that much sea water there? Will a tanker service bring some?

Simply fill with regular water and add bags of salt based on sides(salt is very very cheap).

You would not want all the crap in sea water in your pool.

There seem to be a little disconnect here regarding Salt Water Pool.

Sea water is +or- 3.5 % or 3.5 parts /100.

Salt water pool is normally about 3000 parts/million .

Rarely do you have to add salt after the initial treatment unless you loose water from anything other than evaporation. Salt is also diluted by large quantities of rain water that over flows so after those events you may have to replenish the salt but only a little.

Hey guys, I read that business processes optimization and standardization is a good way to reduce transaction costs and increase company productivity. I am now looking for such a program and found this managemart, do you think it will suit the pool care business? Has anyone used it? Hope to hear your impressions. I am also interested if it has any other cool features. Thanks in adnvance.
