Using saltwater

I've started some experementing with saltwater, here is what I've found.

My beans this year didn't look good. The first generation of leaves turned yellow and withered away. The second generation of leaves turned pale yellow to. So I did some research and concluded, that it was a mineral deficiency, probably magnesium. Since I'm trying to get the lowest resource in/out ratio, I wasn't to keen on buying Epsom salts. So I looked at saltwater research.

I watered my beans with diluted saltwater and now the third generation of leaves are appering and they are dark green. I don't know if this is a coincidence or if it's because of the saltwater. 

Does any have experience with saltwater?
