I gotta first say I love the salt pool so far! in about 1 1/2 mths, though, the pool started turning green. we had the Hayward cell at 50%. We have UV, also, which I want to think helps, although I know some aren't believers here. We've had to run the super chlorinator on the salt cell a couple of times. we ran it less than an hour the first time and all night the second. I was told all it really is is running the salt cell at 100% for 24 hrs. it helped with the algae.
we haven't gotten grass, yet, since the pb mistakingly dumped a bunch of dirt and packed it, then took it out. we're trying to grow our bermuda so we can kill it and put in sod. so the DE filter was ready to be backwashed early and the pb told us he was sure that's why the pool started turning green, along with needing to adjust the salt cell accordingly-just try different %s. He said a lot of people need to run their cells at 100% in the dead of the summer in Phoenix. I want to believe that the UV is doing something and I shouldn't have to run it at 100%. does anyone know if folks are running the cells at 100% are they probably still needing to shock their pool sometimes? is it common to have to change the % throughout the summer? I have a feeling I"m going to have to run it at 95/100% as our levels are measuring .6 clorine. Is that typical for a 1400 or so gallon pool with UV in phoenix? Thanku!
