    New to site

    Hi all,
    im new to this site and feel like I need some guidance. We live in Illinois and owned a 24' round above ground for 14 years. Maintenance was fairly easy.
    In 2015 we had a white fiberglass 15'x34'x6'6" installed. It has a salt water system and I have no idea how it regulate it or how it works.
    Our pump has no filter, rinse, backwash, waste of any kind on it.
    May be visiting here often,
    Gigi Behl

    Welcome.. I just don't understand how a pool gets installed without any type of filtering system. That's priority ONE I'd say.

    Welcome to TFP!!!

    We are going to need to see pictures. I am thinking that maybe you have a cartridge filter and are just not seeing a valve with the rinse/backwash/filter setttings.

    Pumps generally are stand alone devices, as are filters for inground pools. The pump pushes the water into the filter.

    Tell us about your equipment if you can't figure out how to post a pic of it all.
