I used the manual vacuum that came with the pool during the summer because I actually got in the pool and vacuumed), but ultimately, now that it is cold, I went to the pool store and bought a much bigger vacuum (that still hooks up to the water hose) and then a longer pole. It's just too darn cold to get in the water during the winter. :-) Hope this helps!

Yes, you can add chlorine. Liquid chlorine will raise the ph a bit. Don't know what kind of shock you are adding, but wait a day, recheck ph level, than adjust.

SOURCE: it says low flow, how can i fix it

Low flow means there is insufficient water traveling through the cell to make CL. Is your cell clean and clear? Is your filter clean and clear? Clean your cell according to the manufacturers instruction and back wash your filter.

SOURCE: My salt water gets green then, i shocked it and

Your last sentence says it all
So many peolpe are led to believe that using a salt system takes away the need of other chemicals
This couldn't be further from the truth A salt system just makes it so that you do not have to physicaly ad liquid chlorine or float tablets

First of all lets get a little educated in pool maintainence 101 and then I will address your problem ( First problem was buying an Intex product ) but I will cover that too

You can not just blindly ad salt to the system
you need to get a salt test kit that reads in #'s not color
You need to get the water to as close to 3000ppm as possible
Any lower than 2700ppm and you can trigger low salt alarm, not to mention not generating enough chlorine
Any higher than 3500 and you can go cloudy, trigger high salt alarm and you could go cloudy

Now for the intex curse
not a single pump/filter is sufficient with the pools they come with
They are to small
A pool needs to be turned over at least 3-4 times in a cycle 24 hours
I do not know your gl or pump size so I will use generic #'s

If you have a 5000gl pool and a 1500gl pump thats 10 1/2 hours of filtering at the minimum
Use your #'s and figure out what you need to be doing

You want to start by getting your salt right this is crucial What it says in the manuals is just a starting point the fine tuning is up to you

Lets now side track and I will tell you how to cure your problem.
This is time consuming but will give you the best results

Blast out your paper cartridge with the water hose now ad 1 gallon ofliquid chlorine
Filter only for 24 hours now brush your pool with a pool brush not the bristles under your vaccum not enough of them to do any good
now clean the filter again and run for a few hours until you see things settle down
Vaccum and clean the filter and start over again
Check your chlorine if it is normal or low ad another 1/2 if it is super high then leave the chlorine step out
Once you are clear again or close to it Ad a non foaming algecide and also ad chlorine stabilizer this is a chemical that you put in a nylon sock and float it behind the ladder this will help hold the chlorine

Once your chlorine level is at the point you can swimm again you should get your best swimmer to get in with a tooth brush and clean the over flaps in the seems that are on the bottom and where the sides connect to the floor

This should do it

lets look at one more thing
Chlorine generation
There may be night that you need to run it 12 hours for chlorine and other nights 5 or so
It all depends on many factors
sun,heat,number of swimmers, sun tan oil and so on
The biggest thing you can do wrong is to not use the pool If it is not being used every day you should brush sides and floor every 3 days or so. The pump is not strong enough to circulate the water properly

One more thing that I do and I have not changed my filters in this being my 3rd season
I have 2 one is always drying
Start with a dry filter and have the other clean and drying
Change them every couple of days.
Never try to use a wet filter it does not work like a dry one
Dont ask why it is just one of those mysteries
Also periodicaly take the hose off the front of the motor your inlet hose this can build up hair and debris that gets in from skimming

Good Luck

SOURCE: Hi, I have let my

You need to get liquid chlorine and add about 2 liters and let your pool filter run for a couple of days and in the mean time clean your filter twice daily. If the pool at this stage is still a little green add more chlorine and broom the bottom to stir it up. After this as once your pool is back to almost normal, clean the the filter again and add clarifya. To keep your pool in good condion over summer buy 2 pool floaters, put 2 chlorine tablets in one and blue block pool sparkle in the other and each week add 1 liter of chlorine. Hope this helps you as i have the same pool and i do this and don't have any problems. You can also add salt to your pool if you like but dissolve it in water before you add it to the pool.

Have an intex 16 x48" salt water pool generator


I checked the Intex web site and here is what they said:

There are several things you may need to check and do:

- Test the salt level first with Test Kit, and add salt as needed.
- Remove the electrolytic cell for inspection and clean it if necessary.
- If code 91 still appears despite the above steps, there might be a possible electrolytic cell
failure. Please contact Intex Service Center, and replace the cell if needed.

NOTE: Always turn the power off and disconnect power cord before cleaning and servicing.

I hope this helps.

How much salt do you put in a 22,000gal. pool?


WOW... You have a huge above ground pool! Are you planning to use the Intex chlorinator to chlorinate your 22,000 gallon pool??? If you are, take a look at the max gallon rating and how long you may need to run... Here's a chart that should help you determine how much salt to add... After adding the salt, run the pump for 24 hrs without the chlorinator to properly dissolve the salt... Don't be surprised if you need to add above 500 lbs!!!
Good luck and hope this works for you...

no need to drain go to the intex web site and look up your pool size for the starting amount of salt you need.
After ading it run your filter for at least 24 hours before trying to generate use this web site and click on the english version for pump 8110 once it downloads go to page 13 14 15

You need to add salt to the water. How much depends on what size pool you have. Your owner's manual will tell you exactly how much to add when the low salt light comes on. On my Intex I would need to add 35 lbs.
