salt needs to be non-iodised, can be bought at any hardware, pool or koi shop, have a look here on how much to add:

For 2000l you would need 4kg, and to start up 6kg

Hi

A sligh brown tint to water is usually due to a lack of water changes. Some foods also add a brownish tint to the water. A pond needs 10% of its water changed out weekly or you get what you describe above.

Why do you want to use salt if i may ask? Normally salt is only used as a medicine and not kept in the pond at all times.
