I am a newly registered user, and I have a question regarding the compatibility of a recently purchased saltwater system with a pool I just purchased.
WHAT I HAVE
The pool is an Intex 12 x 30 metal frame pool...Water Capacity (90%): 1,718 Gal (6,503 L). It includes a 110-120 volt Filter Pump with 530 gallon (2,006 L) per hour flow rate.
The saltwater system is the Intex Krystal Clear Saltwater System Model #CS8110.
1. The saltwater system did not come with adapter pieces to connect between the pump and pool. Hose size is different.
2. I'm not sure if the saltwater system will even work since I realized after purchasing that it required a 700 gallons per hour flow rate pump.
1. Will the saltwater system work with the size pool that I have? The instruction manual only shows a minimum size of 2000 gallons.
a. If the answer is no, then I simply will have to go the chlorine route and use the pump I have or buy a bigger pool.
b. If the answer is yes, how do I make it work in regards to amount of salt and run-time of saltwater system...please continue on to question #2.
2. If I get the adapter pieces from Intex, can I make the saltwater system work with the 530 gph flow rate pump?
a. If the answer is no, then I will need to buy a pump that has a minimum flow rate of 700 gph.
b. If the answer is yes, how do I make it work?
Helping to give me direction on this would be greatly appreciated. I have 4 small children and I would like to have peace of mind that I'm maintaining the pool properly.
