Just filled the 20 by 52 intex ultra frame pool yesterday from the local fire hydrant. I did like the water dept. said and flushed the hydrant before filling the pool but I still have brown rusty water. I have a intex 1500 GPH sand filter that I will be running with a intex krystal clear salt water system. For now I have been running the filter only to help clean the pool. I need to get the saltwater system going today.
What can I use to get the rust out of the pool? I will be going to get some basic pool cleaning kit today (brush, cleaning net etc.).
Should I start adding the salt now and let it dissolve with just the filter running or should I install the saltwater system and turn it on? I think I amd supposed to put the salt in and let it dissolve for 24 hours before turning the saltwater system on.
The pool is 8638 gallons which needs 220 lbs of salt for startup.
One last item. How full should I fill the pool? I think I added to much water so I drained some out. I am now just above the return port which is still fully underwater.
