Hi guys and gals,
I'm a new pool owner in the suburbs of Sydney, Australia and have a question about a new salt water generator.
Firstly, my wife and I became the proud new owners of a beautiful little home in a nice leafy suburb of Sydney, and with the home came a fantastic in-ground pool which was running normal chlorine via a chlorine/acid system. At the start of summer last year, the mixer broke down and was just not worth the money to have it repaired (pretty much half to almost 2/3rds the price of our new Zodiac Tri) so under the guidance of our local pool shop, I was adding chlorine and acid by hand, and honestly, not very well! So the water and chemical levels fluctated day by day and so did the algae blooms!
After chatting to a few other pool owners at the dog park where i take my dog every afternoon for his run, we came to the decision that converting to salt water would not only be less expensive, but alot easier to maintain in the long run and last weekend i installed a Zodiac Tri salt water chlorine generator with ease, it took about 2 hours.
Now, I know how much salt i need to add to get started, but after that, i have no idea what i need to set the generator to and for how long it needs to run per night (we run our filter system after midnight as its quiet, and in off-peak times for the electricity bill).
If anyone is running one, I'd love to hear what you are running it at? The pool is pebblecrete and just under 60,000 litres.
Any hints and tips are greatly appreciated!!
P.s, this may be a double post as i cant find the one i just submitted. If it is mods, feel free to delete it!!
