I have the following "water tank"(by google translator but searching for tank on google I can't find what I want to tell so you can also help me identifying the word for it!) 14050055.jpg but it is a little old and have some leaks. The water also goes green after 2 or 3 weeks. So i want to add a pump and filter.
The "water tank" has 4.75m * 3.75m * 1m = 18m^3
First I'll apply an water proofing product from a Portuguese company http://www.diera.pt/?cod=368&s=5&ss=...ubcat=49&pag=1 (unfortunately they don't have a english datasheet version )
From what I have read on the last days I need to add a pump, filter, skimmer for water output, "water input" (is that the name for the water that comes from the filter?) and also an input for "pool aspirator". Is that all?
1 - I should choose the pump and filter so I can filter 1.5 times the "water tank" each day, is that correct?
Will it work ok Monobloco filtragem areia - 5000 L/H GRE - Leroy Merlin? 18000 / 5000L/h = 3.6h ~ 4h each day. That kind of power is ok to use the aspirator? The person on that store (leroy merlin) said I should buy this one to be able to use the aspirator Monobloco filtragem - D300 0.33CV QP - Leroy Merlin but that has a less suction power (only 4000L/h) :s
2 - Water output: is the skimmer ok for water output or should I have a main drain also?
3 - Installation of skimmer and "water input" should be on opposite sides, is that ok?
4 - I also read that water treatment could be done using chlorine or salt. Salt systems start all at 1000Euros(1000$) so for now I'll use chlorine.
I think thats all about my doubts on how to do it!
Thank you and sorry for some bad translations!
