Some of my Koi are rubbing themselves against the bottom of pond,would pond salts help?

Salt is a treatment for the problem, but not a solution. Your Koi is probably rubbing against the bottom because of a parasitic infestation in your pond. You need to take a scraping with a microscope slide to find out what parasite is irritating your Koi. Then contact someone in your area, like a veterinarian, and plan for a course of action to get rid of the problem

Salt will make your Koi produce a thicker slime coat and at higher dosages, it will kill off certain parasites.
