Question about Intex Automatic Salt Water System for Above Ground Saltwater Pool
We have the Intex Ultra Frame Pool with Saltwater System. We have put in the recommended amount of salt for the size, tested the salt which shows the ideal ppm, but we continue to have problems having an test strips register any chlorine. (We've tried 3 different brands). I have continued to up the amount of time we run the sanitizer (we are now at the max). We know we have high calcium in the water because we have to clean the titanium plates every few days. We change the filter very regularly (every 3-7 days). I'm reluctant to use any other products not knowing what you should or should not be using with the saltwater. Its becoming very frustrating.
The recommended amount of salt is just a guide> You say yours is ideal
would that be 3000ppm and are you using test strips for salt that are 3 reading or color reading
Go with # reading they are most accurate any lower than 2800ppm and you will not generate enough chlorine and could trigger low salt code any higher than 3500 and it will taste bad and could trigger high salt alarm
when adjusting salt you need to filter only for 24 hours before trying to generate chlorine
I have never cleaned my electro cell
other chemicals should include a non foaming algaecide once a week follow direction for your gallons of water
Also chlorine stabilizer once a month or so depending on conditions this helps hold the chlorine level
and a water clarifier this helps the minute particals clump together thus being possible for the paper filter to catch it.
The paper cartriges let to much small debris through that you cant see
The key to using an intex system is filter filter filter if you do not filter enough you will next go green and that is a nightmare
Have 2 filters so that while one is being used the other has been blasted out with a garden hose and drying An inserted dry filter works better than a freshly cleaned wet one
I have had the same 2 filters for this being my 4th season
I run mine 24/7 it is like keeping a 40 watt bulb on
