Low copper levels are due to most commonly dilution or the copper has been fighting potential algae growth.
The ideal range for copper levels is 0.2-0.5ppm.
- Dilution through heavy rainfall or splash out.
- System not correctly sized to the pool.
- TIMER 1 not running long enough
- Take a water sample to your nearest pool shop and have the water tested specifically for phosphates. If present treat with phosphate remover as per the instructions.
- Adjust copper levels - all units installed Pre Oct 2019, go to Calculators within the Naked Pools App and follow the instructions ensuring to swipe on the reminder below so you are notified to turn the ION SET back when completed. It is important during this time you check and monitor the copper levels in the pool. All units installed Post Oct 2019 see the video below.
- If the system is incorrectly sized to your pool contact us HERE.
- As a guide we recommend TIMER 1 to run for 1 hour per 10,000L of water in your pool. Please check your timers and adjust accordingly if needed .
Examples of default timers:
Example #1 - 50,000L Pool:
TIMER 1 would run for 5 hours 08:00 to 13:00 and TIMER 2 would run for 2 hours 14:00-16:00
Example #2 - 80,000L Pool:
TIMER 1 would run for 8 hours 06:00 to 14:00 and TIMER 2 would run for 2 hours 15:00-17:00

To adjust the copper level simply go to the Calculators within the Naked Pools App and follow the instructions ensuring to swipe on the reminder below to turn the ION SET back when completed. It is important during this time you check and monitor the copper levels in the pool. If in doubt, please contact us and we will assist you. The important factor is to monitor your copper level during this process and to turn the setting back to 20% once the ideal level is achieved.
Some pool environments may require slightly more copper than default. There is NO problem in increasing your ION setting to 30% or similar to maintain the correct levels. Again, just keep an eye on it and you will soon know the best settings for your pool. 90% of pools are set to the factory output of 20% for the Ioniser.
