Just filled my AGP and installed a new Intex SWG yesterday with the help of a friend.
We turned on the SWG , set it for 5 hours timer and of course the low salt came on, then I realized we weren't supposed to have the salt generator running yet, so turned it off for 24 hrs.
Added 3 -40 LB bags of salt and 4 Cups of bleach. ( I know that wasn't much).
When I went out this am it was on "sleep Mode". Sounded like the pump was still running. So I put it back to FP=Filter Pump mode. Checked my readings and this is what they were:
TH OR CH?/ 270
SALT= I DUNNO
Pool calculator recommended:
39 oz bleach= check done
7 1/2 oz borax= not done
42 oz by volume CYA= check done. Note I put it in a LARGE sock and hung it on the return to pool. That's when I noticed the flow in, didn't feel as strong as yesterday.
Then the alarm started sounding and red light say's 'Low Flow".
Shut it off, checked filter, a little dirty but not bad, so I put it back.
I took the sock of CYA out and kinda sorta dissolved it a 5 gallon bucket, it would take 3 weeks and I thought the sock would rot off before it dissolved.
I don't know what I'm doing wrong with this new setup but the alarm keeps going off after about 5 mins of running either in FP only or with the salt generator on.
I've had it turned off completely for 2 to 3 hours and it needs to circulate.
Hope someone can help me again. TIA
Should I have posted this in the SWG section? I didn't see it til after I posted this.
