You will also still need to use cyanuric acid, or chlorine stabilizer, to control UV chlorine degradation, and prevent overworking your salt cell. 


Do you shock a salt water pool? 

Just like any other chlorine pool, shocking a saltwater pool is no different. ... If using granular pool shock (Cal Hypo), use 3 lbs per 10000 gallons, for a complete shock that will kill anything in the pool. If using 6% liquid chlorine bleach, add 5 gallons per 10000 gallons.
