Pump goes into sleep mode because of low salt light. I have added 240 pounds of salt since the light came on and fell that I may be haveing other problems. Would it be normal to have to add that much salt...

No more salt for now!!!!! 1st thing you need to do is check your salt ppm.. must be around 3000ppm.. The 8110 models have issues with their cells that will continue to give you a low salt reading regardless of the salt level.. You must check the cell for calcium build up and clean.. You can soak with vinegar or as others recommend, muriatic acid to clean the cells. Pressure flush to get all the "White Flaky" stuff out.. Dirty cells WILL give you a low salt error on the unit.. If after cleaning the cells you still get this code, you may have a bad cell.. If you are just starting out and the unit is new, YES you will probably add over 300 lbs of salt to get you going and be around 3000ppm on a 14000 gallon pool... Be sure to run your pump only for 24 hrs to properly dissolve the salt and then set your cycle...
Hope this helps...

My pool was clear and just great. all of a sudden the low salt light came on and stopped producing put a bag of salt in started it up and same thing says low salt , so i bought another bag put it...

Salt sensor is dirty;
Use diluted solution of muriatic acid. Contact spa store for comments/suggestions.
Brush with a mildly abrasive green fiber household cleaning pad. Contacts should be clean and bright.
WARNING Inhalation of muriatic acid vapor or contact with skin or eyes can cause serious injury or death. Wear goggles and rubber gloves, and perform cleaning in a well-ventilated area. Add acid to the water; do not add water to the acid as splashing could result.

Thoroughly rinse the Flow/Temp/Salinity Sensor with clean tap water. Replace and resume normal operation.

Code 91 always shows after 8 hours of operation still low salt.

As you stated, 91 means the unit thinks you have Low Salt. I have seen this occur with my 8110 if the salt level is actually too low as well as when the plates have a large amount of white crystals on them. If your plates look clean (I use a pressure washer to clean mine), check the salt level using salt test strips you can get at a pool supply store. If all this checks out, I found this suggestion while searching for a solution to a problem I was having. I ran across this suggestion at this site:

"Xlav8r wrote:Hey , the "CODE 91" fix was said a while back regarding resistors. pull off cover carefully, both the flow sensor and cell power cables exit the case making lifting the plastic case difficult but manageable. look for three adjustable resisters, one above the other. They are marked (or mine was) VR1, VR2,and VR3 on the circuit board. they were black and about the diameter of a pencil eraser with a small Philips (+) adjustable head. The head was locked with glue? but it can be scraped off. The original suggestion said to turn the VR1 resister a quarter turn CCW. This did not work for me but I added an additional quarter turn CCW (now half a turn CCW) and it is back working as it did originally. I will keep an eye on my salt content to keep at 3000ppm as suggested in manual."

I have not tried this particular solution since I am not currently having this problem.
