Do you really need to add salt to pool water?? Couldn't you have a sslt feeder that would go right into the generator and basically do the same thing? Simular to chlorine feeder

Salt doesn't need to be added to the pool very often. Salt doesn't evaporate so the only time it's lost is when water is drained from the pool. The demand for an automatic salt feeder hasn't been there. For this reason, we don't carry an automatic salt feeder.
I guess I asked my question wrong.. what I am wondering is the difference between havING a pool with the proper levels in. Or. Just having on with no salt and adding into it with a on demand device that goes right into the salt generator cell. Saving intial money up front and possibly overall. Not all of the salt that one would put into a pool would be Ie. Chlorine. But in a demand setup 80 90 percent would be. Producing higher amount on chlorine. What reason would this Not work?? Thinking about some kind of in line leaf or debris catcher and just add salt into basket. Etc. ( since they do make salt in the 3 in pucks just like chlorine tabs) when puck is dissolveed. Just add another. .. less salt much more chlorine production in thinking. Any throughts???
There are minimum salt levels in order for the salt system to generate chlorine. The level is usually in the 3000-4000ppm range. This has to be established in order for the system to work. If it detects a lower level, the salt cell will not turn on.
I haven't seen a set up like you are describing.
