At initial startup add 290 pounds of salt. Add 75 pounds if low salt warning appears. Set the timer to run the pump for 10 hours per day.Get a downladable owner's manual here:

I just need to know how to set the salt water system. i have an 18ft pool and have put 3 bags of salt in so far.

You don't say how deep it is. Since you say 18 foot pool, I presume it is round. AT 2 foot depth = 3817; 3 foot depth = 5726 gallons; 4 foot depth 7634; 5 foot depth is 9543. Your salt bag should tell you how much to put in referencing the gallons.

I hope this helps. Thanks for using

Hi, I have let my intex above ground pool go green over winter and with summer approaching don't know if I need to add extra salt or something else to get the pool ready for swimming. It is a 14 foot,...

You need to get liquid chlorine and add about 2 liters and let your pool filter run for a couple of days and in the mean time clean your filter twice daily. If the pool at this stage is still a little green add more chlorine and broom the bottom to stir it up. After this as once your pool is back to almost normal, clean the the filter again and add clarifya. To keep your pool in good condion over summer buy 2 pool floaters, put 2 chlorine tablets in one and blue block pool sparkle in the other and each week add 1 liter of chlorine. Hope this helps you as i have the same pool and i do this and don't have any problems. You can also add salt to your pool if you like but dissolve it in water before you add it to the pool.

with well water you need to ad a metal reducer whatever your local pool shop carries and initially shock your pool before you try starting up your system be sure to filter for at least 24 hours after adding your salt and trying to generate chlorine

Also here is a link to find your recommended amount of salt 16x36 will have different amounts of water if it is a blow up ring pool and a straight up wall look at the manuals in this link

What size is your pool I could let you know how many pounds should be in there.
Most likely it would be easier to test your salt content. You need a 12 dollar test kit that has 10 tests in it. It is very simple just put an inch of pool water in a cup and let the test strip sit in it for about 5-7 minutes. Then read the results. Compare with the bottle #'s if too high then drain some water and add fresh if too low then add salt. ( your ppm should be as close to 3000 as possible) Keep in mind algae is due to lack of chlorine or improper ph and alkalinity not salt content. How often do you run your salt system? at 80degrees I run my salt about 4-6 hours a night and then switch it over too just filtering for 8 or more hours.
Also keep in mind that for a pool to be truely filtered it should be turned over at least 3 times so if you have a 5000 gallon pool and only a 2000gph pump it should filter for 7-8 hours. If you have any specific questions feel free to contact me

Keeps saying low salt level

I would say the rain is diluting the system at this point, or the system sensor has gone out. But if you had heavy rains I would be looking at that idea first.

thanks for using Fixya.
