- Turn system control knob between 3 and 4 to start, be sure green “Active” light is on when the pump is running.

Furthermore, are ionized pools safe?
Copper ionization is a safe way to clean your pools. It kills viruses and bacteria including black algae, which is a tougher type of algae. Unlike chlorine, copper ionization does not cause skin, hair or eye problems. It almost completely eradicates the need for chlorine and other pool chemicals.
Similarly, what is an ionized pool?
A swimming pool ionizer cleans and sanitizes pool water by releasing positively charged copper and silver ions into the water to destroy algae and bacteria. Even though ionization is a proven method for destroying unwanted bacteria and viruses, it's generally not as effective as chlorine alternatives.
Swimming pool ionizers use a cell to house the minerals that are released into the water. This cell is usually composed of two rods that are either copper or a mix of copper and silver. As the minerals are released into the water, the rods wear down and typically need to be replaced every 6-12 months.
