Well I have to say, even though I use the TFP method for my salt water pool, I have issues because my salt cell chlorinator isn't working properly. My new pool person (yesterday was his first day) told me I have high phosphates in my water and wants to put in a phosphate remover. I broke down my pool filter yesterday because there was a leak in the housing. (My previous pool person did absolutely nothing with the equipment... Long story....You can read some of my other posts if you want, it has been an ongoing issue getting a decent pool person since our pool was new). So my salt cell was dirty and didn't work. My question is, should the pool person be adding a phosphate remover to the pool all the time, or should this be a one time thing. I probably do have some issues in my pool because the Chlorine hasn't been steady due to the salt cell not working. After reading other posts I now realize that the slam I do on my pool probably isn't the correct way to do it. However, I can say I have crystal clear water and it feels wonderful. So where should I stand on the phosphate issue?
