Q: I just purchased a house that has WS1 Demand system installed in it. I have two questions: (1) The salt tank has about 6 inches of standing water in it. Is that how it is supposed to be? (2) Can I used Morton salt pellets, or is there a special or preferable salt for this system?
The standing water in the salt tank is perfectly normal. The water is to much when it is halfway up the tank and touching the safety float.
I do not recommend Mortons since it has a high tendency to mush and clump in the salt tank. I would use a cube salt. Unfortunately most retail stores aren't worried about clumping salt in your salt tank so cube salt is harder to find. We carry Dura Cube Salt which is the hardest, cleanest salt on the market. It is guaranteed not to mush or clump or cause any problems. You can purchase Dura Cube at any Aqua Systems location.
Please let me know if you have any more questions.
Thanks, Steve Crane
