Hey Robin 👋👋 glad u found us.
U are definitely not stuck with it.
Unplug & remove it from your plumbing today…
Use liquid chlorine (bleach) & follow Recommended Levels
& the chlorine side of the FC/CYA Levels
today. If u haven’t a clue of your cya just add 3-5ppm daily until u get a test kit.
to calculate additions based on your pool volume.
Get a tf100/tf pro from tftestkits.net or a Taylor k2006c on order & post your results when it comes & we can help u sort things out step by step if u need.
The apparatus itself is adding metals to your water just by being inline with your plumbing . It needs to go. U can sell it on fb marketplace or something & try to recoup your losses.
Don’t add anymore permasalt /pool store potions. Just liquid chlorine until u can properly test. The only testing that is recommended to be done by a pool store is for metals as they are impractical for a homeowner (iron & copper) those results will determine if u need to exchange water since that’s the only way to remove metals which can stain surfaces & people.
There are thousands of different pool chemicals companies attempt to sell you. These pool chemicals are cheap, easy to find, and have little side effects.
These pool chemicals should not be added to your pool. While stores may try to sell you these products we share why you should avoid each of them.

You probably have a 1.5hp single speed pump like me (i think this is all family leisure offers)
I run mine for 11hrs a day from 9am-8pm - its more than plenty but i like the pool being skimmed when I’m looking at it or in it.
I could get by with 6-8 hrs a day. Your preferences may vary from mine.
I have a heavy duty plug in mechanical timer 👇
