Question about Intex Automatic Salt Water System for Above Ground Saltwater Pool
Posted by Anonymous on
You should not blindly ad salt
you need a salt test strip that reads in #'s not color
get your water to 3000ppm any lower than 2800ppm and you will not generate enough chlorine
any higher than 3500 and you could get cloudy water and trigger high salt reading not to mention the bad taste
continue what you are doing in addition add 1 gl of liquid chlorine to shock the pool with cleaning your cartridge out every 4-6 hours
once it starts clearing up start using a non foaming algaecide every 5-7 days just use the directions on the botttle Since you already have an algae problem, even though it will be clearing up you should go for the maximum dose the first time
As for OUR pump/filter/salt combo it is a piece of ****
I do not know your gl of water but here is a generic set
a pool needs turned over 3-4 times minimum in a day
so if you have a 5000gl pool and our filter at 2000gl ph you need to run it at least 7 1/2 hours at bare minimum
I now run mine 24/7 I generate chlorine over night and filter during the day even when being used
also you should check the front of your motor where the hose goes in this catches debris and hair that the skimmer lets in
with these pumps you need all of the flow you can get
speaking of flow we do not get enough of it so it is very important to use the pool every day if you are not then at least brush it every few days once you are green free
another thing to do is once you get the pool back to swimable
Have your best swimmer get in and clean under the seems with a toothbrush inside the pool
in the liner you should have 2 seems in the floor and one around the bottom between floor and side
you now will have a build up of algae in these seems that will not completely go away with shocking since it is protected by being wedged under the seem
Physically lift and scrub
any more questions let me know
