Found this info from the filter/pump manual. You are right, the capacity is calculated at 90%.I noticed you have the 32x16 intex listed as 55,000 litres which is the manufacturers water volume.... if it's anything like my 24x12 Bestway it won't take that much ... mine is 30k at 90% specced and around 26.5k measured 1" from spilling over ... i'd guess the 55k will be closer to 47/48 for chemical calculations and actual volume
it's important to have the volume close especially if your trying to juggle tabs to get cya in
This is the sprayer I am talking about. But don't think I want to install it to avoid aeration as mentioned by @ajw22 .I don't know what an Intex LED Sprayer looks like, but if it's as bright as a typical pool light, you might not enjoy it pointing at the deck, if that's where you plan to lounge at night to enjoy the light. We generally advise folks to point their pool lights away from the house and away from their primary seating area... If that's the only place it can go, then there's nothing to be done about that... My pool light points at the table at which we sit, and it's annoying...
OK. I was just going to caution you about suction ports. Anywhere water leaves the pool: "pool outlet (suction port)," drains, vacuum cleaner ports, and perhaps even your skimmer, there is a potential danger. When the pump is running, these components can trap swimmers bodies or hair and cause serious injury or drowning. Be sure to never leave a suction port exposed to the water, especially when there are swimmers in the pool. Now-a-days these components have built-in safeties that should never be removed and they should be kept in good working order.Currently, 4 is the pool outlet. So I am planning to instal an Intex Skimmer over there.
Busy enjoying my new pool 🏊 Forgot to update my signatureI don’t know that device, but if someone here does they’ll probably first ask you what setting you have it on. Maybe even post a picture of the knob.
Also, it looks like it might be time to update your signature, so others can have an accurate description of your current pool setup.
Tablets take around 5 to 7 days to dissolve.I have dropped a 200gm Trichlor tablet into the Waterking chlorine dispenser and ran my pump for 7 hrs. After checking on the tablet just now, it seems like the tablet has not dissolved much. Is this normal? How long does it takes to dissolve the tablet fully?
Yep, this is just what I was concerned about. An SWG (and I suspect a tab feeder is the same) cannot effectively bring up your FC level. They're designed to maintain the level once you get it where you want it. Your FC is dangerously low (in terms of an algae outbreak). Bring it up immediately with liquid chlorine. Check Pool School for the proper FC level for your pool type. Use Pool Math to determine how much liquid chlorine to add, based on your water volume, like right now.I have been running my pump around 7hrs daily with a single 200gm Trichlor tablet in the dispenser. From my FC readings (assume I don’t it correctly ), it seems like the tablet dissolve rate is not fast enough.
I have drop another tablet in the dispenser just now, so I have two tablets working together now.
Is it a good idea to crush a tablet and put into the dispenser to quicken the tablet dissolving rate?
The followings are the two readings I have done so far (only have a 4 in 1 test kit, still waiting for my LaMotte test kit to arrive):
