so I have a 65,000 litre pool that came "free" with the house 10 years ago. Cause I wouldn't build a 65,000 litre, 10m long, 5 m wide 2m deep pool today.
Converted it to a salt water pool a few years ago with an ebay deal LM40 chlorinator (Clearwater + a Zodiac 40 gm/h cell for $670). Also replaced the kreepy with a Zodiac MX5 (too small, but it was a gift from my folks, so we're using it).
Well, 5 years in, the Zodiac has blown two circuit boards at 250 - 300 a pop, and it looks like the cell is not holding up so well anymore…. Pool has now been green 3 times in 6 weeks from chlorine output levels fluctuating on the LM40…. So I need something to replace that can do the size of pool I have. I have a chemigem that does the pH just fine. Just need the salterwater to Chlorine machine.
…and the zodiac mx5 is a PITA. it keeps getting caught on the odd needle and stops moving… thinking of going back to a sucker… any suggestions?
as to why I am so over-joyed, in the last 12 months I also had to re-surface the pool (found a great guy in WA for about 50% cheaper, still a few k - PM me if you're looking at this major expense) and the pump packed up and had to be replaced. I also had to replace 65k water,… so except for the sand filter and the concrete shape, I have now replaced everything in this pool (blanket 2 years ago).
- Need a salt water chlorinator for 65k pool (40 g/h levels)
- Need a pool cleaner. Have a hose (Zodiac). Can convert to pit others.
