Troubleshooting Most Common Issues:
Have a Low Chlorine level in your Pool? We can help!
What is the salt level in the pool?
- Your salt level should be at 3500ppm (4000ppm, SJ Models)
- To calculate how much salt you need use:
- 30lbs. of water softener salt per thousand gallons for initial startup.
- If you've measured salt already in the pool, your product manual (and its help guide, see link above) has a handy chart showing how much more salt needs to be added
- You can also visit www.poolcalculator.com as a helpful resource

What is the stabilizer level in the pool?
- Ideal Range is 60-80ppm.
- Stabilizer or CYA for short protects your chlorine from the sun.
- Stabilizer is not typically used for indoor pools.
What is the Phosphate Level in the pool?
- Ideal range is ZERO Parts Per Billion.
- Chlorine demand will greatly rise when the phosphate level is above 100ppb.
- Chlorine can be depleted fast enough that it can no longer show that there is any available on water chemistry tests, even if the pool is still clear.
- Phosphates are the #1 food source for algae. They will rapidly consume the chlorine in your pool and also cause algae to grow.
What is the Nitrate level in the pool?
- Ideal range is ZERO parts per million.
- Chlorine will be consumed above 10ppm
- IMPORTANT: Smaller levels of Nitrates combined with small levels of Phosphates can add up to still be a significant problem.
What is the Output Level on the CircuPool Unit?
- If your Chlorine level is low, temporarily raise your salt system's Chlorine Output Level to 100% until enough Chlorine has been created.
- This may be needed:
- During rising temperatures.
- When your bather load is heavy.
- After a heavy rain.
- During chemical imbalances,
How many hours are the pumps running per day?
- Every pool needs enough circulation pump run-time to for the water in the pool to pass through the filter around 1.5 - 2 times a day.
- Pump run time should typically be a minimum of one hour for every ten degrees outside.
- i.e. Temperature peaks at 90 degrees, run the pumps for a minimum of nine hours.
