We moved in a house new house like august and the owner gave up on the pool, it was green. I used about 35 pound of 65% granular chlorine in 30 days and the water always agua color. Purchase a new sand filter ( was more than 25 years old) with new sand.
This spring I installed SWG system Agua Rite T15. I started the pool in June only using the SWG system.
My pool has a slow leak so I am keeping the water level lower than the skimmer, I am getting quotes for a full pool renovation, new liner, new pool inground stairway , skimmer, suction and return lines. The pool deck is made of cement interlock blocks that are loose with no cement base. the current deck has to replaced and proper cement desk has be pored. We are going to be spending about 20k this fall.
I understand that with 21K gallon pool my T15 cell over over-sized so I have my salt system set to 30% I run the filter about 8 hours per day. I have solar cover that I keep on the pool when we are not using the pool.
My TFP kit result is a follows.
PH = 7.5
TA = 130 PPM
CYA = 0 PPM
According to what I have read here my FC levels are two low, they should be higher but my Pool is clear and the solar cover must protecting the FC.
The bottom drain pipe is filtering the pool. I removed the flow fittings to reduce the water pressure as I might have a leak.
My question is, I find that am adding allot of salt, Every two weeks I am adding about 44 lbs of salt to keep my Salt level at around 3000 PPM. I am not adding much water the pool ever since I have kept the water level below the skimmer. I am in Quebec Canada and swimming season is only a 3-4 months I thought I would not adding more than 44 lbs of salt for the entire swimming season not every 2 weeks.
