Hi,

We've got a 15 foot above ground KD pool that we use with a Chlorease system. We have some issues with the chlorine getting too high when the solar cover stays on. We solved this by running the system on a timer--but overall it works great.

A saltwater pool is a still a chlorine pool these pools are set with an electronic system that converts part of the salt usually sodium chloride into chlorine. Magnesium chloridewith potassium chloride is used in a similar system.

Is a sand filter system or a saltwater filter system for above ground pools?

All salt water systems work the same salt is added to the waterwhich is run through a chlorine generator which creates chlorine gas and mixes it into the water.

you have to buy a saltwater generator from a pool store or intex, then I use water softening salt i got mine at home depot it takes about 4 days for it to dissolve with your pump running constantly then turn your generator on that's all you have to do i love my saltwater pool

If you are getting a low reading of chlorine in your above ground pool, you should add the appropriate amount of chlorine to get it back to the correct level. This is important to keep your pool running at maximum abilities.

Chlorine tabs can be put straight into the pool, even if it is above ground. You can also put them in a container in the pool which will help them dissolve more slowly.

Chlorine level in an 18' above ground pool should be between 2 and 4.

I currently have an above ground pool 15' wide 4' deep and i use a chlorine bouy which i take out when not in use.

Time. It all depends on how much chlorine was in it. If you shock a pool (high amounts of chlorine), it is ready to swim in by two days later.

Algae, time for chlorine. Pool supply places have a test kit (ph) & can tell you how to use & what to add-chlorine or acid.

There are many non-chlorine options for sanitizing pools, both above and in ground. Sodium Bromide is one option that is usually readily available.

Get an algaecide and follow the instructions. it makes no difference what sort of pool you have.

User Avatar

No, so don't try or you will end up very thirsty.

You first have to convert the pool to a chlorine system As a salt water system is a chlorine system.

User Avatar

Yes, it's easy! Just add a saltwater chlorinator between the filter pump and the pool intlet. Then add pool salt. Follow the directions in the manual and you will be swimming in your saltwater pool in 24 hours.

There are above ground pool salt water systems available. These systems turn salt into chlorine. All you have to do is add a piece of equipment to your pool. Which product you buy depends on your pool. Your pool will look, feel, and smell much better. You will also spend less time maintaining your pool. It will cost you to buy the equipment ($150 and up), but I think you will be very happy with the results.

how are they supposed to mine above ground? mining is defined by making an entrance underground, otherwise it isn't called mining anymore.

User Avatar

For starters? A couple of 1lb bags of "Shock-it" Chlorine tablets PH plus PH / Chlorine Test Kit ($10).

User Avatar

Probably mosquito larvae. Chlorine will do the trick. Stop by your local pool supply.
