We have been using this new pool for about a month now. As indicated in my subject heading, we have the Intex Salt Water Generator for our "small" pool. I only use pool test strips to use to monitor the water.
All I have added was the salt initially and nothing else (because after all, I am trying to have a "chemical" free pool as much as possible).
My pump is 1,000 gph (I upgraded from the 500 gph that it comes with). I use filter letter "A".
I also keep a solar cover on every night.
I have been running the SWG 2 hours every evening, and the pump just slightly longer before and after the SWG running time.
Some days the water clarity is great. Some days it is a bit cloudy. The AquaCheck test strip readings are slightly on the low side also.
APPROXIMATE numbers (according to the back of the AquaCheck bottle):
Stabilizer under 35
Tonight I am experimenting with running the SWG for 3 hours. Maybe that will help?
Also, what are the hazards to swim occasionally in water with low readings, as I mentioned above?
I greatly appreciate your help or thoughts on any of the above.
