    I'm just down the road on RT #3 in Ban Chang. My salt water pool was completed and water put in about 3 years ago. I followed the preferred method of filling the pool by having fresh water trucked in by the local city water plant. The trucked in fresh water from the local govt city water company is surprisingly inexpensive. A few trucks depending on the size of your pool and it is quick.

    Don't use river or klong water. Too much bacteria and general fitly. Hose water from the house will take way too long to fill the pool and impact water pressure if you want to use water in the house.

    Enjoy your salt water pool.

    my pool is 5 x 9 meters with a height of 1 meter at the shallow end and almost 2 meters at the deep end with a side spa. 1hp pump for the spa and a 1 1/2 hp pump for the pool. the filtration system is on a timer and is on 4 different times during the 24 hour period maybe for a total of about 10 hours out or 24 hours... the salt water chlorination with "zelbrite" (Zelbrite - outstanding swimming pool filter media made from Zeolite) used as the filtering medium rather than sand keeps my pool crystal clear and proper chlorine and ph levels. I throw in about 2 kilo of salt a week into the water and very occasionally (maybe once a month) when needed a small chlorine boost. The pool is vacumed and underwater surfaces (sides and bottom) once a week,,, sometimes 2 times a week. Easy to maintain.

    why do you do that? I have an indicator that tells me when to add salt, which happens about once a year

    when you add salt, it also says you have to turn off the auto chlorinator, do you do that?

    you obviously have a different system/set up. my add salt indicator actually does not function properly and it always shows "check salt". Consequently, my salt additive is based on the chlorine testing results of the water. once a year with the adding of salt would never work.

    my system does not have a requirement for turning off any auto chlorinator. The salt just get added to the pool water and everything else is "auto". too easy.
