Your salt is way to high if you can taste it. You will need to dilute with fresh water until you get the salt back down and then clean the cell for continued use.

SOURCE: Where can I get a new motor for an Intex pump model 637 or 12R

first off water should not be getting to the armature area. be carefull with how you are taking care of your pump.
secondly a 1500 gallon pump is very weak I would advise at least 2500 or even the intex 4000
the most important part of pool maintenance is circulation.

if you have time check into electric motor rebuilding in your area
but sometimes that is more expensive than buying new

also if you have a valid receipt and the pump is less than 90 days old call intex and they will send out a new one within 24 hours
good luck

SOURCE: I keep getting code 90 (low water flow) on my

If your pool has the skimmer system there is a hose coming from the bottom of the skimmer to the wall of the pool which would be your suction to the pump. Disconnect the hose clamp from the suction port that goes through the wall of the pool remove the hose then unscrew the blue adapter on the inside of the pool there you will find a strainer / screen. Whatever gets pass the basket in the skimmer get's plugged up in that screen causing the pump to starve for water causing the LOW FLOW sensor to go off on the Saltwater pump.

Let me know if this helps any.

I suggest you clean the cell according to manual and try it then. If it keeps producing chlorine then keep swimming. If the pump is flowing water fully (if not clean baskets and filter) and it can't keep the chlorine above 2 ppm and you have 30 to 50 ppm stabilizer in the water then there is a major problem in the chlorinator. I don't trust the salt indicator on some chlorinators but that is less important than if it chlorinates. You can but salt test strips. I hope this helps.

My pump keeps reading low salt it will run fine for about 2 to 3 hrs then the low salt alarm goes off. I have put in approx 240 lbs of salt I have at 16' x 48" pool. Please help


Your unit is malfunctioning...your pool @ ~5200 gallons, even from a no-salt in the water start-up should only need ~140 lbs. Are you certain it is reading low salt and not high salt or simply salt error? You can try diluting the water to get the salt levels below 3600, otherwise you need the unit serviced or replaced...generally with an intex, if that is what you have, it will mean replaced.

I have had my intex saltwater system since June. It has done wonderful up till now. I keep getting a high salt error. I haven't added any salt. what could be wrong?


Have you had a lot of water evaporate from your pool from the heat. As the water evaporates the salt content in the pool goes up. If so then drain a fair amount of the water out of the pool and add fresh water to fill it up again. Also unscrew the connector on the right side of the electrolytic cell and make sure the plates are clean. If that doesnt fix the problem than you may have to replace the cell.

Hello,
the amount of salt that they reccomend in the book is just a starting point
You need to get a salt test kit that reads in #'s not colors
Get your pool to as close to 3000ppm as possible
lower than 2800ppm and you will not produce enough chlorine
any higher than 3500ppm and you can trigger high salt alarm, have bad tasting water, or even get cloudy water
Like you have done, when adding salt , filter only for 6 hours or so to fully disolve

Intex salt water witha 18x48 witha 2000/gph pump. my salt water system keeps saying low salt... my salt tested fine after adding more and ive cleaned the cell... it will stay on about 20 min then beeps low...


nothing is wrong that you cant fix
you must have your salt no lower than 2800ppm
and no higher than 3800
3000ppm is the best
make sure you run filter only for 24 hours once you have correct salt then start generating

one last thing test with strips that read #'s not the color strips

I am not impressed at all with these salt water chlorinators.Shock the water and keep the filter running next day add a powdered chlorine.filter still running. check the balance with test strip in about four hours.If chlorine level is good start vacuming the algee off the bottom of the pool. Now throw away the salt generator and stay with the chlorine packs every week to two weeks continue to monitor with test strips

We keep getting code 92 (high salt). There water


From the FAQ, What should I do if code 92 appears?

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

- Test the salt level first with Test Kit, drain approximately 20% of the pool water and refill with fresh water.
- If code 92 still appears despite the above step, there might be a electrolytic cell failure. Please contact Intex Service Center, and replace the cell if needed.
