    copper blocks for Intex question

    I keep seeing post about removing it. Is this necessary for an above intex pool?

    I have the Krystal Clear Saltwater Model 7110/8110. I've been getting low salt but when I do the test kit I get about 4000 for salt reading.

    If you do not want the copper added to the pool and potentially get staining and green hair, then at a minimum you should disconnect the copper wires.

    Low salt warnings when the salt level seems to be fine often point to a dirty cell or a failing cell. How old is the SWG?

    That is odd. Might want to contact them about warranty coverage. How did you verify the salt level?

    I used taylor test kit K-1766 CHLORIDE SALT WATER , added my info.

    Is intex pretty good at replacements. I'm assuming they will send me a replacement and i'll have to return the damaged or other way around?

    I have no idea about the warranty methods. But, clearly it is not working correctly.

    If your unit is less than 2 years old, they will replace it for free. I've never had them ask me to send the old one back.

    honestly they should know its a legit device by the serial number, not sure why they make you jump through hoops. who saves all receipts lesson learned.
