Question about Intex Automatic Salt Water System for Above Ground Saltwater Pool
What is good salt amount to you?
Did you go with the lbs of salt recommended in the manual?
That is just a starting point
you need to use a salt test kit that reads in #'s not color coded
get your salt to 3000ppm lower than 2800ppm will not produce enough sanitizer and over 3800ppm will give you bad taste,some cloudy, and even a possible high alarm
cloudy water is usually bad filtration
Intex pumps are to small for the pools they come with
Not enough horses
you need to turn your pool over at the bare minimum of 3-4 times in a day
Since I do not know what you are running I will use generic #'s
If you have a 5000 gl pool and a 2500 gl pump you should at least run your filter 6-8 hours remember this is minimum you will have to do the math for your pool
It is also important to blast out your cartridge once a day
It is best to have 2 one drying while the other one is working
A freshly cleaned filter does not filter as well as a dry one
Also you should be using 3 seperate chemicals which go buy gallons of water
a good stabilizer that you float in a nylon. This helps hold the chlorine content
What destroys chlorine? # of bathers,sun,heat, rain, sun tan oil and so on so it will be up to you to figure out what works for what you are exoeriencing
second is a liquid non foaming algaecide every 5-7 days
and lastly the paper filter cartridges are **** you should use a water clarifier that clumps the minute particles to form bigger ones that the filter can actually trap
just remeber salt systems don't keep your pool clearer it just makes it so that you do not have to pour liquid sanitizer in or float tablets
Clear water is from good pool maintainence and filter filter filter
I run mine 24/7
It only uses as much power as a 40 watt light bulb
