    high/low salt alarm

    I got my new pool up this year with the intex salt water system. The manual lists the ideal ppm for the system, but I would also like to know what the low and high limits are. Has anyone found, or fugured this out? I would prefer to be able to keep my level within the limits by frequent testing and not waiting till an alarm hits to act.

    Re: high/low salt alarm

    Welcome to tfp, DFrock

    I have never seen actual specifications for the intex other than the "ideal" range of 2500-3500. My intex has been throughout that range without error (right now I am at ~2300 ppm).

    I don't think you need to worry much about the salt level, since it should only change due to leaks and splashout. I typically go the whole summer with no low or high salt errors.

The SLAM process is not finished until: 1. CC < 0.5 ppm, 2. An OCLT < 1.0 ppm and, 3. The water is crystal clear.
