Assuming you have the Intex salt water system and the easy set pool, here's what the manual says:

15x33" - 65 pounds (80 for metal frame)
15x36 - 65 pounds (100 for metal frame)
15x42 - 80 pounds (110 for metal frame)
15x48 - 95 pounds (N/A for metal frame)

hope this helps!

How much salt is needed for a 30 ft diam pool with 54 in side walls?

23,790 gallons if you fill it to the very top.

Calculate the volume of a pool you need the radius^2 times pi times depth times 7.48 to come up with gallons.

Radius = 15ft
pi = 3.14
depth = 4.5ft

15^2 x 3.14 x 4.5 x 7.48 = 23780.79 or 23,781 gallons.

So the salt you need is 640 lbs @ 40lbs each = to 16 bags

I don't think Mike's figures are correct according to my research. You can ask at a pool supply shop, who will also sell you the salt. It certainly is going to be 32oz to make a saline pool. Remember the salt is doing the job of chlorine to kill bacteria.

    • Then identify current level of salt.
  • If 0 - you will need about 150 lbs to bring to minimum 3200 ppm

depending on the salt system you are using, the amount of salt will vary. the owners manual should have a salt table with a recommended value. most salt systems will require somewhere close to a 3000 ppm level. to get this, you will need approximately 140 kg of salt. (65 lbs)

I have a 22 x 52 intex pool and need to know how much salt to add for the first time

the equipment should specify the parts per million of salt required, just google your make and model for information, then take the volume of water(22 x 52 x average depth) and multiply by the required salt concentration. then divide by the bag weight to get the number of bags required. Get some spare bags, but start with a few less than calculated, this enables fine tuning as you test the water a few times
