I have a pretty big salt water pool. 34,000 gallons. Here is the issue. I do not want to run the pool pump 24 hours a day which seems to be what it needs to generate the required amount of chlorine. The previous owner ran it 24 hrs a day because there is no timer here. Or any sign of one.
I also do not heat this pool nor do I want to. My 5 year old nephew or my 50+ year old Mom have no problem swimming at the temp that it is. Its stays around 69 to 77 degrees. Someone told me that the water should be closer to 80 to get the chlorine generation.
So my idea is just to up the salt content from 5000 to 8 or 9000 ppm.
I also do not care about the salt taste and since i am bypassing the heater, the salt will not damage it. The only metal that the salt may hurt is the ladder and some pump components.
