Poor Quality
Morton Salt used to be very good Quality. Not any more! Both the "Clean & Protect" and "Pure & Natural" products are SOOO dirty with soil, black plastic, chunks of brown & black grit they make an oily slimy film in our salt tank. EVERY BAG! All come from mines South of our border.

    Be careful and CHECK every bag of this product before you leave the Home Depot parking lot!!! I recently purchased bags of the Morton salt pellets and they were contaminated with dirt or some kind of gritty material that comes out of the pellets once you put the pellets in your brine tank!! You can tell if the bags of the salt pellets are contaminated if they appear tan in color instead of pure white like they should be. I didn't think to look at the pellets when I put a bag of them into my brine tank recently (6/10/21) and by the time I saw the tan color of the pellets going in it was too late. Check the pictures I posted with my review. The first picture shows what the salt pellets should look like (pure white) next to one of the recently purchased contaminated salt pellets. I also included two pictures of the dirt and grit floating inside the brine tank and sticking to the intake tube. I checked the other bags I bought and sure enough they were all bad. I went back to Home Depot and got a return for the bags, and went over and bought a few more thinking it was only a few bad bags. Nope. Before I left the store I checked the new bags and every one of them was bad, so I got a refund for those too. An associate went with me to the pile of bags they have at the front of the store and he started to open the bags to see if we could find some good ones. Nope. Every bag he opened was bad. I ended up going to a local mom and pop store and buying a different brand of salt pellets which were perfectly fine, pure white, and did not contain any dirt or contaminates. If you buy the Morton salt pellets, open the bags up before you leave the parking lot of the Home Depot store. If the salt pellets look like a tan color, they are no good, and contaminated with dirt or grit, and this dirt and grit, if not cleaned out of your brine tank can foul up the injector and screen in your water softener and cause damage to the unit. As a side note, I emailed the Morton company right away when I found the first bag of salt pellets being bad. The email response gave me a phone number to call and talk to someone. I called the phone number but no one answered. I then called several times over the next week but still no one ever answered. I left messages but no one ever got back to me. Morton used to have great products, but recently their salt pellets have become contaminated and unusable.
