After harsh winter,green pool,levels of everything are fine except salt which we are adding. Have Penair filter, so what is optimum speed &for how long to get my water crystal clear and blue

It has been 15 years since I owned a pool. My best way was to shock pool with a liquid shock , run filter for a day then broadcast aluminum sulfate with filter off. Usually in a day or two all debris is on bottom of pool. This debris must be vacuumed to waste because it will clog the filter.

Where can you buy pool shock in malaysia

If you have a salt water system, you may safely use and 'pool shock' as long as it is either sodium based or is potassium peroxymonopersulfate based. Typical liquid pool shock, or even granular shock for a salt system, is compariable to household bleach. Main difference is bleach may contain a trace of phosphates, but nothing that will harm the system. I see no problem using bleach. Just dont enter the water until the chlorine reading has dropped to or below 4ppm. Hope this helps! Pool management and chem analysis experience of 6 years.

I have an 18 by 48 Intex easy set pool and have had a high salt reading I emptyed about a 1/3 and ran clean in but still to high now its turning green what do you suggest I shock it with?

For your pool size you should have started with 160 lbs of salt. 18x48= 6,400 gallons of water. The manual says the only way to lower salt is to partially drain and refill with water, I do not believe there is anything you can add to remove salt. I would think you can throw in some regular chlorine shock to get the green out while you are adjusting the salt level.

I have a 13X42 inch Metal Frame Pool and we have added over 55 lbs of salt to our pool and its still green and saying low salt.... what should we do and how much salt does out pool actually need??

You need to get water tested then add the right amount of shock + others and check in a few days to see where the water is at. The salt system only keeps pool right when in balance.

I have a saltwater pool system that was recently set up and the water seems to have a slight green tint to it and the walls and floors are slimy. Can you ''shock it'' with salt in the water?

yes but yu need more than just salt take a sample of water to pool shop you have way to much phosphurus in the pool you will need a shock tratment that has to be poured through skimmer box that goes through filter and increases pressure mommenterally salt alone will not fix. alkalinity is buggered as well you will need a buffer powder as well to get on top of it get water tested so you dont just waste your time
