Where to buy salt for swimming pool ?

Post by iPa41000 » May 3, 2023, 11:13 am

Hi, where to buy salt for swimming pool in or near Udonthani ?
Dejoyau shop is closed
JDPool shop is closed too :(

Buy it on Lazada between 160-190 baht for one 25Kg bag, but need to pay 250 baht for shipping !

Depending on your definition of "near", there is literally tons of it for sale in and around Ban Dung.

Phukit Swimming Pools on the ring road between the old Home Mart and the large paint shop which is opposite Global House. They always have plenty of salt as well as all kinds of pool supplies/equipment. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the clarification, 747.

I am not fortunate enough to have one of those fancy places with a pool, so I live and learn.

Can you expand on the reasons Ban Dung salt is unsuitable for swimming pool use?

The salt in Ban Dung contains a lot of Algae which will turn your water green.

For basic chemicals i found Phukit ok ..alas as pointed out by kopkei anything other like pumps etc and way way too pricey .. another location is the pool shop based at Do Home on the Nong Khai HW .. outside to the left of the main entrance .. excellent prices.

I finally received my salt, ordered from SPT, after 17 days, and some misinformations! :shock:
The positive was the price at least the shipping price, compared to Lazada. 270b for 250Kg.
If someone need salt I can sell some bags at the buying price, 180b. I am on the road to NongWauSo, 15Km from Udon.
I will try to buy again there, but for something I don’t need quickly.
