Question about Intex Automatic Salt Water System for Above Ground Saltwater Pool
A rough estimate is that you have about 10,500 gallons of water depending on how full you have your pool
This translates to about 200-250 pounds of salt
To be certain get a salt test kit ( costs about 11 dollars for 10 tests )
you want to be as close to 3000ppm as possible
Much more and you will taste a lot of salt less than 2500ppm and your unit will not generate enough chlorine
Start with 200 pounds spreading it around the pool. Now brush it around to partially disolve.
Most important now is to filter/circulate the water for 24 hours before checking the ppm
Although it may look disolved after a few hours it is NOT
if after checking if your salt ppm is not where I told you add 15 pounds at a time until it comes up or drain 2-4 inches and add fresh water to bring it down repeat as needed to reach 3000ppm
Now you can start producing chlorine
Remeber though contrary to the directions for intex the total hours of run time depend on # of swimmers how hot it was that day, rain, and sun light. You should start with the average in the book but adjust to what works for your swimming habits and weather
