    When I mix the sea salt for making salt water, the salt grains never fully dissolve in the water. The salt just moves to the bottom. Is that supposed to happen?? Also it says to use a filter for it but I dont do that I just shake it up but the salt grains never dissolve! Also is pre-expanded Eco Earth in a bag okay to use?

    Use hot/warm water and dissolve the salt- when its dissolved then fill the rest of the container with reg dechlor water.
    ex: I make it by the gallon so I fill up the gallon jug about a 1/4 way up with hot water and my dechlor drops--add salt- shake shake shake til dissolved then fill it up. No filter is needed

    as for the EE I often make it ahead and keep it in a zippy bag-it has never molded on me and is ok

    I had the same problem so I just added a little water. Thanks, HERMEZ. I'll try that next time.;)

    I use instant ocean. It's salt in a bag but you have to buy it in bulk; 5 gallons is the least I've seen.
