    I was watching your winterizing pool video. It said to put chlorine in but i have a salt water pool and a cell. How is that different? What would i put in it before closing? Also, my understanding is, basically make sure all the water is out of all the units, cover the pool. Other than that i just am wondering, do i put chlorine in as mentioned even for a salt water pool?

      Salt systems are great for maintaining the chlorine level, but not so great at raising the chlorine level quickly. The only time I use chlorine in a salt pool is closing and opening. This will raise the level quickly and sanitize the water. Use chlorine to close it and let the filter run for a day to get it in the water and then close it up.
