New pool owners. 30 ft AGP installed mid-July with Perma Salt System, sand filter and heater. Water never looked clear and advise sought from local pool supply stores -not where we purchased pool- proved to be a mistake. They have no knowledge of this system and we took advise that may have made water worse. Plus the Pentair pump is defective and being replaced soon. Suspect that pump issue has also damaged heater because now when set at 87 or higher, gas smell due to inefficient operation. We’ll deal with that next year. The water is very cloudy even though the copper, ph and alkalinity are balanced. Salt residue can be felt on the pool floor and seen on the solar cover. I think we need to remove Perma Salt System, drain pool, clean out salt, refill, balance and then winterize for next Spring. What are our steps in ensuring that we are on the right path for next year? Should we save up for a SWG to add next Spring? Seriously, if we didn’t have a deck built around pool I’d just consider this a really bad decision. Now I feel that whatever new costs we need to incur have to be done for next year. Can you give us step by step instructions or is it time to pay out more money and have someone do the work for us?
