although you may or may not have enough chlorine in your pool you must also realize that a pool need turned over at least 3 times a day.
an example is if you have 7000gl of water and a 2000gph pump you need to filter at least 10 hours or so.
More important than chlorine is the actual circulation of the water you can have all the chlorine in the world but if you do not have the circulation the water will become cloudy or green this also happens when you have no swimmers for days at a time
the filtration time is over and above the chlorine generating time your 4 hours a night for generating chlorine sound like you are guessing sometimes it may be 4 and sometimes 2 or 6
it depends on # of swimmers a day sun and what was in the pool to start
It is important to have a test kit for ph and chlorine and keep chlorine at 1.0to 1.5 now set your ph
ph will rise and fall with your chlorine level one you have them set good at the first time then ph should stay safe enough and re level as chlorine is kept right
also remeber that the wrong ph causes more problems than wrong chlorine levels
Also make sure your salt is no more than 3000ppm and no higher like some people recommend and no lower than 2500 test kits are available for 10 dollars
all of this can be found on intex.com either in a video or pdf files for water capacity and approximate time for generating chlorine.
to be sure always use test kits

You should always follow the instructions on the manual .. I have a 18X33X4 oval and had to start with over 350 lbs of salt and ran the pump without the chlorinator for 24 hours to properly disolve the salt. Then, I started with 12 hrs pump cycle with 10 hrs of chlorination in between the 12 hrs. Keep checking the chlorine level and adjust time from there. Currently at temperatures of 85 to 100, I run the system at 10 hrs pump with 8 hrs chrlorinator and water is Crystal Clear... In the 2 years with the intex system, I have not added any chemicals to my pool. I once had an issue when the water level went low while I was on vacation, when I came back, the chrolinator had turned off due to low flow and my pool water was green.. As soon as I re-started the cycle, a few days later, Crystal Clear again... NO CHEMICALS OR SHOCK added.... Hope this helps....

Hi Chris, W/D here.
Here's a few things that you may or may not have checked:
1. You didn't state the age of the cell, or type. The generally last 2-3 years. I don't know how the power to the cell was checked, but clean the cell thoroughly before moving on. I use 1 gallon of muratic acid, and soak for about 5 minutes, then flipping the cell and soaking for 5 more minutes. Wear neoprene/chemical resistant gloves, and rinse thoroughly. Save the solution, as you can get several cleanings out of it.
2. Look for a fuse on your panel. The control boards are divided into areas of function. You'll need your wiring diagram, if the areas aren't clearly defined.
Hope this helps, --W/D--
