If you want to measure the level of salt, present in a liquid, quickly and accurately, you need a reliable digital salt meter. Salt meter have 2 conductive electrodes spaced apart at a fixed distance. When a current passes from one electrode to the other, it can measure the level of conductivity and from that calculate the amount of dissolved salts, present in for example your salt water aquarium or salt water pool and spa.

Salt Meter for Aquarium
Owners of a saltwater aquarium or reef aquarium kneed to measure the salt level of their tank on a regular basis. Not everyone has access to an ocean, so a lot of enthusiasts have to make their own salt water for their aquarium. Measuring the salt level and adjusting it when necessary is absolutely vital if you want to keep your fishes, plants and your entire marine ecosystem perfectly balanced.
Salt Meter for Pool
Recently salt meters have become increasingly popular for pool owners who work with a salt chlorination system to disinfect their water. In a pool that works with salt chlorination, the salt (NaCL) molecules pass an electrolysis cell and are split in Natrium and Chlorine. The Chlorine kills the bacteria and reforms with the Natrium at the end, back into salt, forming a closed cycle.
These salt chlorination systems usually work at a specific salt level or range. Usually this range is between 1 and 5 grams of salt per liter. It is important that you keep the level of salt exactly around the optimal level for your system. You will find that a lot of systems available on the market will go into an alarm if there is not enough, or too much salt in the pool water. When you start up the pool in spring, make sure you add around 25% more salt than the minimum needed. During the season we recommend measuring at least 1 time per month and add salt if necessary.
We often get asked; what to do If there is too much salt in my pool? Unfortunately, there is no magic solution here, your only option is to drain a part of your pool and replenish it with fresh water to dilute the salt level.
Salt Meter Maintenance
Keeping your Salt Meter in an optimal state so you an enjoy it for a long time. Always dry it after use with a soft or paper towel and always put the protective cap back on the salt meter. Store it in a dark and dry place at room temperature, outside the reach of children. When the display becomes unreadable, change the batteries immediately. If the salt meter does not work anymore, try replacing the electrode.
