Answer: 
I have used this in my above ground vinyl pool for over 5 years and it works fine. Just brush it around until it dissolves. Works great with the salt water chlorinator and I have been able to operate the pool all summer without having to add more salt. Don't waste your money by paying more for a bag of salt that says for pools.

Answer: 
The previous answer is incorrect, you can safely use this in a pool.
Salt is salt, it does not matter if it's for a pool or water softener. You just need to make sure there are no added ingredients, which there are none in this salt.
It's more course than "pool salt" so it may take a bit longer to dissolve, but if brush it around the floor of your pool it goes quickly.

Answer: 
Don't do it. It will corrode any metal in the tank as the water in the tank will become a very strong salt solution.

Answer: 
If you put it in some kind of container like a butter bowl. You don't want to put it in loose because it would possibly hold open the drain plug that allows the water to go into the toilet bowl. I hope that this helps you.

Yes, the water softener salt is the same as rock salt but has the impurities removed so it doesn't effect the resin bed in the water softener and helps make the softener last longer.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not recommended for Kenmore or GE water softners I have purchased this product from the local Home Depot for years because Culligan recommends solar salt for my old softener. The problem is the filth that is in the salt stained my tank, and required regular cleaning. The salt looked nice and clean as I poured it in, but I found that as it dissolves it contains a lot of dirt and sediment. I also found twigs, straw and Beatles. I even found a desiccated 5 inch centipede. I am pumping this into my water source? Would it kill them to sift the stuff before they bag it? When I retired the culligan and got a 42000 GE from Home Depot (way more salt efficient) I had a few bags left, so I figured that I could use them and then move to pellets. After I set it up I found that the manufacturer says not to use solar salt because all of the extra matter can clog the system and media. I had to scoop it out and clean the tank. It is the same for Kenmore and many of the one tank systems It is a cheap ice melt if you don't worry about concrete damage. I recommend that you save yourself the trouble and mess. I really see no reason to use this over pellets in a softener. Use nice clean pellets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Water softening salt If you have a water treatment system you need salt. To me salt is salt. I buy this brand because it has the lowest cost I can find anywhere and I can advance order online. It is well packaged with a carry handle built into the plastic bag. I originally thought the handle wouldn't be strong enough to not tear out when carrying the 40 pound bag. I've had the water treatment system since 2009 and use an average two bags a week. I cut the bag half way across below the handle and hold the bag by the handle and bottom when pouring the salt into the reservoir. I've never had a handle tear out even with the bag cut below the handle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from completely satisfies my needs The 40 lb. Solar Salt Crystals satisfies my whole-house water softening requirement. The 40 Lb. weight is manageable from Auto to Furnace Room; 80 Lb. bags are simply too heavy, even for a 6'8", 275 guy (true many years before reaching current age of 72). The product size and quality 'works for me'.
