SOURCE: High ph, algea, salty taste

You are going to need to buy chemicals anyway (acid for sure and probably algaecide) so find a good pool store tech and have them test your water and recommend the proper doses.

In summary though, you should not taste the salt in the pool and being able to means the salt content is to high. Chlorine generators will not work if the salt is to high and the fix is to drain water and dilute the remaining water until the salt content is no higher than max. No chlorine could explain the algae.

Generators also cause the pH to rise over time so you will need to keep acid on hand to counteract that.

SOURCE: unlevel ground 3 inces

if you had said it was a blow up ring intex then yes it very likely would collapse. with your situation it is less likely, but possible
as for the metal frame you still need to keep an eye on how many swimmers or on the low side and if they hold on to the rail
your weight distribution of water does not need to be disturbed by hangers on.
water weighs 8 pounds per gal so with your 12000 or so gallons could shift
be carefull and keep an eye on it especially if any of the support leggs are on plain old dirt dirt turns to mudd no matter how hard it was during dry days throw in the weight of the pool with wet dirt and the leggs will start sinking

SOURCE: zodiac baracuda wont go to shallow end of pool

If you can, adjust your intake valves so more of the suction is coming from your vacuum and less from your skimmers. This will allow the the vacuum to climb out of the deep end.

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.

Intex Chlorinator Problem: After holding down left arrow and it beeps, i set hours on timer and then it blinks with that number for about 2 minutes and goes to CODE 94=not operating.

First make sure the pump is running and water is flowing through the clorinator. (wont work if water isnt flowing). Make sure water is going in the right direction. (into chlorinator on the right side from the pump, and out of the chlorinator on the left side). The timer controls can be touchy.Try increasing the hours by holding the up arrow until the time is one hour more than you want, then use the down arrow to get it back to the time you want. Sometimes it wont cooperate with increasing the time and just stays at 1 hour, so you have to keep trying a few times.

Is there any chemicals I need to add to my pool when I leave it up and full of water for the winter. I am worried about the alge growth. when I stop treating the water . on my salt water system.

If you have the intex soft side pool do not leave it up.
Once the water freezes and thaws you take a big risk of gouging the pool and thus tearing it.
These pools are meant to be taken down every year if you live in a freeze area

Small tear in my intex pool

You can put a patch on the outside while there's water in it. What you do, is put a piece of plastic (bag, saran wrap, anything similar) on the inside to stop the leak while patching the outside. Place your patch with glue, then if you can, put a flat magnet on each side to hold it together and keep the plastic in place. Remove when it's cured, and it should hold you at least the season, when you can patch the inside.

I cannot find user manual for my intex salt water system. What side of pump does it attach to?

You have an inlet side, (where pool water is brought into the pump), and is typically the lower of the two. Then you have the return, (where the water comes back out after being filtered). As the previous person noted, you'll need to observe the arrows indicating flow direction on the SWG and it will be on the return side of the pool. Additionally, you can go to the INTEX website, and they have the same setup video that should have been provided with your system. Hope this helps.

My intex pool pump is surging and won't stay primed???

i think its pump side first as its easier to push water through a filter rarther than trying to **** it , Also the only reason it could loose its prime is through air getting in the system.
