Q & A

Q: I have a new above ground 18 foot round pool. Which would be best for that sizE pool? Should I look for something else?

Asked by: marlene - 4/27/2017
A: That size pool is about 7000 gallons, so the Saltron Retro would work well. It has the advantage of requiring virtually no installation, it just hangs over the wall of your pool and plugs in to a standard 110v outlet. It is a great way to save on chemical costs for a couple seasons, but if you're looking for the most long term savings, take a look at systems which install in the pool plumbing and offer longer lifespans and warranties.

Q: I have a 15,000 gallon pool. In 24 hour period how many hours would my sand filter have to run to make the salt system run correctly?

Asked by: Joni - 7/20/2017
A: As a starting place, the rule of thumb for pool run-time is one hour for every ten degrees of temperature outside. It will ultimately depend on your pool's needs, which is different for everybody.

Q: How does this work?

Asked by: Maxie - 3/8/2018
A: This model simply hangs over the wall of your pool and plugs in to a standard 110v outlet. Like all salt systems, it creates a pure form of chlorine every day so that you don't have to buy any more chlorine, shock, or algaecide. Additionally, it works consistently every day so you don't have to struggle keeping the pool clear.

Q: I have an above ground pool that is 18ft round and 4.5 deep. I only have the "cheap" filter that comes with those types of pools. I am just hearing about the salt water system and very interested in purchasing one. I don't know where to begin. Can you help?

Asked by: Teresa - 5/24/2018
A: Absolutely! This is a very popular salt chlorination system for your size pool. If your filter/pump is working, you'll typically keep it and just add in this salt chlorinator. This is what will sanitize the water so you don't have to add more chlorine, shock, or algaecide. One of the reasons this model is so popular is that it takes virtually no work to install it, you simply hang it over the side of your pool, and plug it in to a standard outlet.

Q: Will this work to switch 27ft by 52" pool to saltwater from chlorine?

Asked by: Roro - 4/6/2019
A: Your pool size (about 17000 gallons) is very near the peak of this system's capacity, especially if you're in a southern climate. You would probably want to get a system rated for at least 25-30000 gallons.

Here's a little more info about sizing:

Q: what size chlorine generator is suggested for 27ft round above ground?

Asked by: sandy - 4/27/2017
A: If you multiply 27 x 27 x 4.5 (depth) x 5.9, that comes out to about 19,300 gallons. Depending on your climate and pool use, you would benefit most from a system with a maximum stated capacity in the 30,000 to 40,000 gallong range.

Q: I am writing about our church baptistry. Am I right to assume we could use this and salt to maintain it, instead of chemicals of we drained and refilled it? It is essentially a loner fiberglass pool size 10'x5'x4'.

Asked by: Ron - 5/22/2018
A: You don't necessarily need to drain and refill just because you are adding a salt system, but yes, it looks like you've got about 1500 gallons of water, and these systems cover up to 10000-15000 gallons so that should surely be capable of sanitizing that much water.

Q: I just purchased a 24'X 52" round above ground pool. Will this unit work well? How long will it last? I live in Central Florida

Asked by: John - 3/19/2019
A: That's about a 15,000 gallon pool. That is probably near the max of this system's capabilities, especially with the pool being in Florida. Take a look at some of the other systems that get plumbed in (instead of hanging over the pool side, like this one). You can get double the power and much longer lifespan for not too much more.

Q: Does this fit to exsisting pump and filter. Are there pump flow requirements?

Asked by: John - 4/24/2019
A: This model just hangs over the side of the pool, so it's completely independent of the existing pump and filter. If you're looking for a low cost option for a salt system that gets permanently installed and has a much longer lifespan, take a look at this one: https://www.discountsaltpool.com/CircuPool-SJ-15-Salt-Chlorine-Generator_p_147.html

Q: I have a 15' 5 ' deep above ground chlorine pool. can I switch to salt with this?

Asked by: jacque - 4/26/2019
A: If your pool is 15' diameter and 5' deep, then your pool is probably around 7000 gallons. This would be a very good system to use.
