    Intrex ring pool with salt water chlorine generator

    I'm new to owning a pool. I wanted to start small and get used to pool management. I purchased a 10' Intrex above ground ring pool. I really want to run it with salt/chlorine generator. So, I purchased INTEX Pool Saltwater Chlorine Generator. I've also upgaded the pump to 800 gpm instead of the 580gpm the pool came with. What are the pitfalls I may run into?

    Thank you

    Welcome to TFP!

    An Intex pool has virtually the same types of requirements that other pools do. This is a great guide to get you going.

    Hi, after you read that article - post back here if you have any questions.
    If you know the gallons of your pool, plug them into the pool calculator and that will help you learn how to treat your pool with the various chems...get familiar with it because you'll be using it often.
