Hi. I'm very new to this, and being in the UK means very little local support.
Over the last three years, I've progressed from a Intex 10'x30" metal frame AGP to a 12'x30". This year I have just installed a metal wall 12'x48" Bestway Poseidon.
I've just been using multi chem chlorine tablets to keep everything clean. Since I only use the pool for four months then drain, I've had zero problems. I used a Intex electric 3000 watt heater.
Last year, I purchased a Intex saltwater pump/filter all in one. I only used it in pump/filter mode. But this year, I intend to use it as a SWG as well.
The problem I have is there seems no way to run the filter/pump longer than the SWG. This will cause problems with my new air source heat pump. If I set the SWG part to run for 4 hours a day, the pump/filter only runs for the same length of time.
I need the pump to run a lot longer to heat the pool. The maximum time the Intex SWG can run is 12 hours, but even at that length, either the heater will need more time or the SWG will generate too much Chlorine.
I can manually set the pump to run all the time, but this switches off the SWG. I would have to manually turn the SWG on every day.
Surely this cannot be right and I'm missing something?
Intex must realise people need the pump running to even after the SWG has done it's job? (without having to manually switch modes)
Any help would be appreciated....Paul
