Question about Pool & Spa

What other chemicals do you need for start up of an intex salt water system?

We have an Intex Ultra Frame 16x48 AG pool with a 635T Filter Pump and Krystal Clear Saltwater system (CS8110). We just installed it and filled it yesterday (7/14) and we now have the pumps running (salt has been added). No errors and it is running fine. However, I was wondering what other chemicals need to be added at this stage? We are new to pool ownership and want make sure that we do this right the first time so it will be enjoyed all season. Thanks!

What would be the best automatic pool cleaner for intex 18 x 48 easy set


the vacuum you are using is probably the best for the system you have. if you want a REAL pool vacuum, get a REAL pool. there is a reason that these are considered disposable pools. dont get me wrong, any way to cool off is great and these pools allow people this 'luxury' at a reasonable cost but they are assembled with low end, non standardized equipment that doesnt match with traditional pool equipment.

Do I hook up just the pool filter for 24 hours and then hook the intex salt walter filter onto the pump?


When you are opening the pool each year or for the 1st time, you hook up the filter pump and than the Salt System before you start filtering the salt... Eventhough you filter the freshly added Salt into the pool for the 1st 24hrs, it can run through the salt system, just don't turn it on like you mentioned... The trick is once you start running the salt system is to get the chlorine levels up as quick as you can... I have not mastered this yet after 3 years but I will consult my Local Pool Chemical Supplier next year before opening the pool... So I think you should do the same...

Good Luck...

I am having problems with the copper levels in my 16X48 above ground pool with intex salt water system. what chemical do I need to purchase to bring these levels down?


You need a sequestering agent to get the metal out. Get a quart at your professional pool supply house and follow the container instructions.

For best results, chlorine should be at minimum or at zero.

Before you do this ... does your pool have a heater attached? What is the pH? If there is a heater and the pH is below 7.0, the water could be eating the copper jacket in the heater. Make the pH right before you do anything. pH should be at 7.2

I have an Intex Ultra Frame 24'x52" pool. We are installing the saltwater filtration system today. How much salt will be need to use and are there any other chemicals we should use for the initial setup?


I HAVE THE SAME POOL FOR YOUR FIRST START UP ADD 310 OF POOL SALT. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A INTEX SALTWATER CHLORINATOR I WOULD SUGGEST GETTING ONE. IT WILL GIVE YOU READINGS ON LOW SALT, HIGH SALT, AND ALSO HAS A BOOST FOR COPPER IONIZATION, WHICH KILLS ALGEA AND BACTERIA. MIX YOUR SALT AROUND THE POOL AND LET THE PUMP CIRCULATE IT. GET A TEST KIT TO CHECK YOUR SALT LEVEL. IT SHOULD BE AT .OO3 OR 3 PPM. TO DO A GOOD JOB OF KEEPING YOUR WATER CIRCULATED YOU MAY NEED TO UPGRADE YOUR PUMP FROM THE 2500 GPM TO THE 4000 GPM PUMP. THE INITIAL SALT YOU ADD SHOULD GET YOU IN THE BALL PARK. AFTER CIRCULATING AND SWIMMING A FEW TIMES CHECK THE LEVEL AND IF TO HIGH LET OUT WATER AND ADD FRESH, IF TO LOW ADD MORE SALT. ONCE SET YOU SHOULD BE GOOD TO GO AND ENJOY FOR THE SEASON. HOWEVER I RECCOMEND CHECKING YOUR POOL LEVELS WEEKLY. HOPE THIS HELPS.

I'm thinking about getting a above ground pool. Can I use the pump that comes with the pool to for salt water? And what is the routine for salt water maintance and start up?


What kind of filter comes with the pool?
If your using an intex pump don't waste your time. They do not pump enough.
If you are getting a sand filter then by all means get a salt system
Start up is simple ad x amount pounds of salt determined by the volume in gallons of your pool then filter only for 24 hours then you can start generating chlorine.
Just remember just because you use a salt system does not mean you do not need chemicals you will still need to use a stabilizer and keep track of ph also a good non foaming algaecide and crystal clear solution should be used

here is a manual for salt set up click on the top pump and look at around pg 15 this will give you salt to gallons ratio for pounds of salt needed
