I have been reading all these reviews, and am in waiting for my brand new 24 ft above Intex Metal Frame above ground pool. So, I am studying about it before it arrives, which will be in about nine more days.

But, I read many questions referring to 27 ft above ground pools, and they say it works great for them, and it does a great job chlorinating their pools. Also, in the manual it states that the salt filter works with the 32' x 18' x 52" rectangular pools..also it can filter up to 14,350 gallons of water per pool.

Hope this helps!

The book states 310 lb. (8 bags) but since the salt doesn't evaporate and to reduce it you must drain the pool some, we opted to put less in at first. We put in 6 bags and after hooking up the saltwater system everything is fine. The lights are not indicating too much or less salt.

310lbs but I recommend you add under that to begin with as you can easily add salt if you need more, but you have to drain a lot of water to remove it if you add to much.

We live in a very hot area and suffer from water evaporation and as salt doesn't evaporate we can get a high salt alarm and automatic system shutdown if we don't top up with fresh water

That can have several causes.

1. insufficient running time...increase run time

2. insufficient salt..Use test strips to ensure you have at least 2000ppm

3 high water temperature and the chlorine is evaporating.... cover the pool when not in use and increase operating time during hot periods.

4. clogged or dirty electrolytic cell...descale with white vinegar.

Yes, the saltwater system requires a separate filter pump system. The saltwater system does not have the ability to create its own flow, which is why it needs a separate pump to provide the flow for it.

This unit should work just fine. I base that assessment on performance comparisons with more expensive units. The bottom line is how much chlorine is produced per day by weight. This unit, model 8110 according to the chart produces 1.26lbs/day. If you needed two units you would still be cheaper off, and chances are, you'll never be completely down ;>) Check this chart out at :

The book will tell you that comes with the saltwater system. I suggest starting with a bag or 2 less then the recommendation because you can always add salt easier that remove it. If you put too much in you will have to drain some of your pool. Our 24x52 stated 310 lbs but we put 240 lbs (6 bags vs 8) and our system says everything is fine. There are light to warn you of low or high salt.

answer 3
Your pool is about 4200 gallons. You need 110 pounds of pool salt. If you use pool salt it will dissolve almost instantly. If you use water softner salt it will take a long time to dissolve. You also need to make sure the salt does not sit on the bottom when you pour it in. If it sits on the bottom it could ruin your pool liner. Pour the salt in the pool in different areas to help it dissolve. Do not pour it in the skimmer.

It's easier to add salt if you haven't added enough, but the only way to remove it if you add too much is to drain water.
Salt is $5.50-$6 per 40lb bag.

You will also need to add cyanuric acid which reduces chlorine loss due to ultraviolet rays.

This unit replaces manually adding chlorine to the pool. You need separate pump/filter. If you already have a filter pump that meets the GPH requirements there is no advantage to buying a sand filter as far as the chlorine generator is concerned.

However sand filters are far more efficient at filtering than the cartridge filters that come with the intex pools and are worth looking at when the filter that comes with the pool breaks down. Personally I would keep an eye out for special offers on sand filters.
