Hmmm...What about a blend of say 30% sodium chloride to 70% Magnesium sulfate or for that matter a 50/50 blend? Also could copper sulfate be used to help with water sanitation?

I was thinking about using half pool salt (sodium chloride), or even all pool salt.


 


The only thing I could think of being a problem is if you want to use hydrogen peroxide instead of chlorine for a cleaning agent.


I think, but am not sure, that it could react with the chlorine ions and form HCl.  But OTOH that dissociates in water as well, so it may not even be an issue.


Again I'm not a chemist, just basic understanding so I could be completely wrong.


I would love to know for sure if there would be an issue.


I know it says on peroxide containers to not use it with chlorinated pools.


 


If you don't have an issue with using chlorine, there's no problem I could see from using magnesium chloride.

Floatation tanks were originally used with NaCl, but they found it to be very harsh on the body and with fewer benefits than MgSO4. Magnesium is a super mineral when it comes to health benefits for the body.



As per your concern of use of h2o2 with Cl, h2o2 is actually used to dechlorinate solutions.

imo, stay with epsom salt and used h2o2 to shock. Good luck.
