Question about Intex 2500 Above Ground Swimming Pool Filter Water Pump ()
Follow these steps ... let the CL go to zero ... add a sequestering agent to get the metal out. Follow container instructions ... run the filter 24/7 (deferring to the instructions on the sequestering agent.) When the metal is out, get your calcium to 300 ppm, get your alk to 100, get your cyanuratic acid to 70 - 90 ppm, get your pH to 7.2/7.4 and introduce 2 to 4 ppm of CL. Do this in this order over the course of 2 days. Dont dump all this stuff in at once and expect good results.
If Cal is more than 300 ppm, dump some water and add new. What is the Cal level in your fill water? Be aware of that number as you adjust.
Use Sodium Bi Carb to increase your Alk
Use Sodium Carb to increase your pH
Use dry or liquid acid to reduce Alk and/or pH as necessary
Get the Alk set first before you try to adj the pH.
The Cyanuric acid will protect your CL from the sun.
You cannot run your filter too long! Backweash only when the pressure raises 10 lbs from the new fresh startup pressure. Doing so before is wasteful of chemical and defeats the filter process.
If you are using salt, get the water as I said before you turn on the salt cell. Add salt per instructions on the bag. Use pool/food grade salt only!
I hope you find these comments helpful.

You need to be able to test at least chlorine, salinity, ph, alkalinity,
and stabilizer. The best way is using test strips. If you have a sample
of water tested at a pool supply store that will work too but frequent
transportation is more costly than strips. The salinity should be about
3000 ppm, Chlorine should be between 2 and 4 ppm, alkalinity should be
between and 80 and 140 ppm and the stabilizer should be between 30 and
50 ppm. Some say up to 100 ppm. Unfortunately higher stabilizer reduces
the chlorine's ability to kill algae, etc. When the water becomes cloudy
it is likely low on chlorine and is about to turn green. If the test
shows low chlorine level then I would add shock to 10 ppm chlorine. If
the filter system is working correctly then it should clear up fairly
soon. I would not let anyone swim until the chlorine is between 2 and 4
ppm and you can clearly see the pool bottom.
