Question about Intex Automatic Salt Water System for Above Ground Saltwater Pool
Lets start with bromine
it can be a substatute but is more expensive. more irritation, and must be kept at a specific reading more so than chlorine or it will be inaffective, or down right irritating to skin clothes and eyes
it works best in Hot tubs
as for the cell build up it sounds like too much salt has been put in
if your followed a table for # of gallons vursus amount of salt to start with then you probably are to high. the tables are just a guide and unfortunatly all salt systems even though produced the same have different results with different amounts of salt
you should get a salt water test kit about 10 dollars for 10 tests a dollar a test sounds exoensive but one you get the pool set you only need to test every 3 weeks or so. salt will not change unless you have a lot of rain or splash out and you are constantly re filling with fresh water
get the salt to 3000ppm no higher or you will get tremendous salt taste and no lower or you will not be able to generate enough chlorine for the pool. The closer you are to 3000ppm then you do not have to worry about the salt content too much for splash out or rain since those instances only change your ppm by about 15-35 so you are a long way from the 2500ppm minumum
check your pool and if you are ( you have got to be ) higher than 3000ppm then drain 20% of the water or so and fill with fresh and so on till you get to that level
clean your cell again and try again
one thing to remeber is that you will need to figure out on your own how long to run it. filtering and chlorine generation are 2 seperat things that pool owners do not understand
I will try to explain as easily as possible
sun,# of bathers and heat will affect the absortion of chlorine there for you will need to run the chlorine generator for different amonts of time. your chlorine should be between 1.0 - 1.5 but anything 3.0 and down to ..0.8 are ok just realize again that thew closer to 0.8 the longer you need to run the generator. Start with 4 hours and see what that does
as for filtering this is what people dont understand you need to turn a pool over AT LEAST 3 times a day even with no swimmers ( Lack of swimmers and filtration is the # 1 cause of cloudy, green, or algea pool )
So lets take generic #'s If you have a 4ooo gal pool and a 2000gph pumpt thats a least 6 hours of straight filtering over and above your chlorine generation
another great hint is to garden hose your cartridge filter every day.
Although it may not look too dirty it has micron particles that block the suction holes and your pump will be running slower than it should
hope this all helps if you have more questions you can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
