SOURCE: I've been reading the blogs and have ascertained

You have about 8588 gallons of water in your pool ... One inch of water contains about 159 gallons in your pool. You should consider a 6 hour turn over rate. I recommend a high rate sand filter with at a minimum 1.5 sq feet of filter area. You need to move about 24 gallons a minute to achieve the 6 hour turn over rate.

Continue your research with these figures at hand.

SOURCE: which salt water test kit(s) would you suggest for

Have the salt tested free where you purchase chemicals. While there, get a Taylor test kit to test for CL, pH, Alk, CA and Cyanuric Acid.

Salt is persistent in the water - translation - once in the water, it stays there, it doesn't go away except through splash out or back wash. Your salt should be around 3200 ppm. Get rid of the metals in the water before you do anything ... get the Alk around 100 then adjust the pH and introduce your CL. Cyanuric Acid protests the CL you are making. Some places call this 'stabilizer' and the reading should be around 60 to 100 ppm. Calcium is like salt ... persistent in the water ... lost under the same circumstances.

I hope this information helps you.

SOURCE: Filled our Intex pool on July 1, 2011....put salt

Get your water tested.

Here is what you must do when you fill your pool ... 1st, get the metal out. Use a sequestering agent, follow the bottle instructions exactly. 2nd, get the alkalinity proper (goal is 100) 3rd, get the pH proper (the goal is 7.4). 4th, introduce your salt (should be about 3200 ppm) Check the balance using the Taylor Water Balance Wheel. Getting your water correct may take several days.

Another thing you should consider is using cyanuric acid (aka stabilizer). Cyanuric acid acts like sun screen for your chlorine. The sun will eat your chlorine almost as fast as you make it if you dont use Cyanuric Acid.

I hope this helps you out ... you can get additional free advice from your professional pool supply store. Stay away from the discount place for best results.

SOURCE: This is the second summer

I got a low salt warning when the cell became coated with calcium,
you can look at the cell and see the stuff. I live in Austin which sits on mostly limestone. The chlorine level will keep dropping as the cell becomes more and more coated. I removed the unit, capped the copper cell end (cap came with the pool, but you can use the hose and a plastic bag) stood it up against a wall and immersed the cells in 5% white vinegar. It will bubble for a few hours, then rinse and reinstall.

We purchased the Intex 633T pump. We want to know if this pump can be ran with saltwater pool?

Unless the manual specifically says otherwise there should be no problem. The salt level in salt water pools is very minimal, so it's really no different than using mineral additives. Do pay attention to salt system though as far as using other mineral additives such as copper or silver algaecides as they can damage the salt system.

Have no owners manual and can't figure out how to set the timer!

code 88

Is the Setup/Start up Code. it is displayed until you set the timer. which you do so by holding down the down arrow till you hear a beep, then hold down the up arrow till you here a beep. from there you can set the time and then to lock it in repeat the process

If you need the manual you can email Intex at
Or you can buy the manual on this link below.
