Intex 120V Krystal Clear Saltwater System CG-28669 with E.C.O. (Electrocatalytic Oxidation) for Above Ground Pools
With Intex Krystal Clear Sand Filter Pump for Above Ground Pools, 3000 GPH Pump Flow Rate, 110-120V with GFCI
Even though I only have a 4000 Gal Pool I decided to purchase a system with capabilities above my needs, the difference in price was not that much and this would guarantee shorter running time. Where I live is sunny and hot year round which requires longer running times to generate the necessary amount of chlorine. It was the difference between running 4 hours/day with model CG-28669 vs 8 hours/day with model CG-28667.
Initial Impression upon unboxing
Equipment was well boxed and no parts where missing. I was impressed at the quality of the materials and craftsmanship. Instructions are detailed and easy to follow. Manuals are included and can also be easily downloaded online.
This is where it got tricky. Setting up the connections between the filter, pump and chlorinator was straightforward and easy. It's the connections to the pool where I was challenged a bit. If you have an Intex Pool all the connections to the pool should be standard. However you you have a different brand pool get ready for a few trips to your local hardware store. It looks like Intex uses a type of thread different to the standard PVC thread you find at your local hardware store or to the type of thread used by other pool manufacturers so your connection to the pool inlet and outlet don't match. A fix would be to change your pool inlet and outlet (skimmer) if it's an aluminum wall, to the Intex brand. In my case I purchased some plumbing rubber adapters, clear hose and metal clamps. Below is a picture of some of the extra adapters and connections I ended up using including the 2 Hose Adapters for Intex Pools and Hose Conversion Adapters kit for Intex 1500gph and 2500gph
How the Timer Works
The salt chlorinator system (CG-28669) is digital. It can be set from 1 to 12 hours of run time. There is no clock to set. If you turn the unit ON at 6PM and set it for 2 hours run time, it will turn ON everyday at 6PM and run for 2 hours. To change the start time you need to manually turn it off and then on at the desired time.
The Pump and Filter have its own Dial Timer. It can be set for 2, 4, 6, 8 or 12 hours. There is a a witch that can be set to off, on, or Timer. To run the entire system, meaning Pump/Filter and chlorinator, you need to set both timers to the same run time and then turn both on at the same time.
The seal between the 6-Way valve to the sand filter tank leaks and I have not been able to get it to stop, even after tightening the clamp. It's a small leak but it shouldn't be there. Also the cap to cover the backwash outlet rubs against the 6-Way valve clamp and it makes it difficult to screw the cap in and out.
After about 5 Months of Use
I installed the system on Aug 26,2015 and it's now Jan 11, 2016. On the Salt Chlorinator, after the initial bag of salt I haven't had to add anything else. I run the system 4 hours each day 7 days a week and the pool is crystal clear. I'm thinking on lowering the run time to 2 hours a day and see how it goes. According to the literature you should only need to add salt to replace loss from spilled pool water. No salt is lost to evaporation. If you use your pool frequently and spill a lot of water you will have to replace some salt but the cost is almost none existent compared to the cost of buying chlorine and shock on traditional setups. On the Sand Filtration and Pump I only had to buy the initial Sand to fill the tank. According to literature on the subject I should not have to change the sand for 5 years. The initial cost of the sand and salt was less than $30 at Home Depot. I do perform a back wash on the filter about one a month but it only takes a few minutes to do. I have not done a study on the electrical cost of operation but will do so shortly.
Feb 24, 2016 Update: I finally saw the Low Salt light come up. I added half a bag of salt (about 20 lb.) which is the suggested amount needed for my size pool to bring the salt back to level after the low salt indicator lights up. A bag of salt cost me $7.21 and I only needed half of it, that is all I've have spent on the pool in 5 months besides electricity. I've also hooked up a kWh meter to the whole system, I've calculated that I'm spending about $8.40 a month to run the system 4 hours every day.
March 1st update: After running with low salt for possibly several days the water had turned a little cloudy and there where some spots on the liner growing a bit of green algae. After adding salt, lightly brushing the pool walls and floor and running the system for 12 hours for 5 days the pool is back to its crystal clear water. I was concerned that because this system uses low levels of chlorine it would not be able to recover from the cloudy with algae state without the help of some shock treatment but to my surprise that was not the case. Here is what it looks like now.
Despite the issues with compatibility and the design flaw causing a small leak I love this system. I'm giving it 5 stars because it works and you can't beat the price. This is as close as you'll get to a no hassle system. In the last 5 months the only thing I've had to do to my pool is perform a monthly backwash to the sand filter just as a precaution, add water to replace the water lost to evaporation, add a bit of salt and vacuum clean the pool bottom. Nothing else. I even gave up checking the water chlorine levels because it's pointless to do so. These salt water chlorinators maintain a very small amount of chlorine on your pool to keep it clean but it's so low that you can't smell it and the regular test strips will always read low, which is fine. My only regret is not getting this earlier.
1. Easy to setup, it uses 1 1/2 inch host attachments (standard Intex)
2. Nice power cable, I wish more would use the inline GPF instead of the box end (it has a standard plug with the box a few inches away)
3. Fairly easy to maintain and use, once programmed you don't have to do anything else.
4. Easy to clean, just make sure you keep it clean.
1. Instructions are... a bit confusing... how much salt? how long? Do yourself a favor buy a salt testing kit, don't let your salt get above 3500ppm
2. This thing HATES hard water... even with filtered water it clogged and started throwing strange errors (See pictures) it kept throwing flow/salt too low errors (it should have a hey I am clogged error)
This is a fantastic product, no more dealing with chlorine tablets, you have a nice soft pool (salt water is awesome on the skin) and once you get the timer setup, you will always have a clean sanitized pool that requires almost no maintenance. Keep an eye on your plates, if you see white residue on them clean them out with some vinegar, or in my case soft plastic to clean them out. Don't trust the warnings, buy a salt testing kit and keep it right around 3000-3500ppm and enjoy a summer of clean water.
Dealt with chlorine for years... $3 bucks a gallon every few days.
Became very costly with bad results.
Fighting algae and cloudy water constantly and spent more time trying to keep the water clean than actually enjoying it.
I looked into the saltwater system after reading reviews and hearing through the grapevine that it was the way to go.
Boy do I feel stupid for not doing this years ago!
Basically hook this little thing up between your pump filter and the water outflow.
Add your startup salt into the pool, stir it up and let disolve for 24 hours, turn it on, and you're making chlorine naturally with salt.
No more buying chlorine ever again!
It was that simple !
Only reason I don't give this five stars is because you WILL have to do routine maintenance to the unit probably once every week or two.
If you don't you are going to have issues.
You see, the salt that runs through the unit collects on the electrodes and will have to be removed.
If enough of this salt collects on the electrodes
the unit will flash low salt warning and will not work properly.
It will be unable to read how much salt is in the pool and the electrodes will be caked with salt and unable to perform.
This is an easy fix ...
Very simply done by unscrewing each end of the unit, pulling out the electrodes and soaking them in a cup of vinegar for about an hour or so.
You will see the salt deposits come off naturally through the chemical process of the vinegar reacting to the salt.
there's also a sensor between the two electrodes that you will need to clean .
Once they are clean screw them back on and you're good to go for another week or two maybe even three.
Some people will find that extremely difficult...lol.
Don't be lazy people!
Compared to the alternative, this is SO simple than dealing with a chlorine pool.
Easiest unit you will ever have to deal with...
BUY this unit if you are sick of chlorine and all the hassles that go along with it ...you will be thanking yourself later
