Question about Intex Wet Set Water Filtration Filter Pump for Swimming Pools
It could be the capacitor is bad. The capacitor stores up a charge of electricity which it discharges to start the motor without it the motor cannot start against a load. If the capacitor is good the internal switch may be sticky or faulty.It is located under the back cover of the motor. It is a centrifugal switch that starts the motor on the capacitor and start windings and as the motor spins up to speed switches to the run windings. Check to see that it operates smoothly. Hope this helps.

Turn off the pump at the timer and remove the lid to your pump where you empty the debris from the basket. Get a hose or bucket and fill that resevoir with water and get the lid back on as quickly as possible. Turn on the pump and it should start to prime. On the filter, there is a air relief valve. Depending on the filter, it will pinch and twist, or there is a knob to uncrew. Doing that as the motor is running allows tbhe air that has built up inside to puge out. Once a steady stream comes out close the relief valve. May need to tryh it more than once.

if this is a flooded suction and when it turns on it keeps pushing all the water out faster than it is coming in you may have a pump that is too big for the size of the line coming in.
also look to make sure you have nothing plugging the lines going into the front of the pump.

filters are too good for pump system.
These pool pumps seam to over heat fast, no quick fix.
* Try getting more air flow around pump.
* Only use pump when using pool or near by.
* Use a pool cover - will help stop dirt/rubbish getting into pool - less to filter.

salt does not solve your problem.
People do no realize that all the salt does for you is that it eliminates having to pour regular chlorine in.
Everything else stays the same as a normal pool with just plain ole h2o
The dilema is that intex filters are to small for the job that needs done especially in your case now that you have the dreaded green monster
your solution is to first get it cleared up
shock your pool with 2 gallons of liquid chlorine and then filter filter filter
You will need to brush the dead algea and vaccum once or twice a day for a couple of days and you must clean that cartridge 3-4 times a day with the garden hose
you will be surprised how much green it will trap
once pool starts to clear and the chlorine level starts to come back down from Mars you can start using your generator again.
you will need to find the amount of time thatorks for you but 3-4 hours will not cut it in the hot weeks
Chlorine consumption is due to #of bathers, heat ,sun, rain so any given day will dictate a different amount of generation needed keep it high so you do not get algea again about 3.0
you also got algea because you were not stiring up the pool enough you again need to filter filter filter every day
try to find some of my other postings with more specifics

Way too high on the salt.. about 5000 to 7000 ppm. You should be around 2000 to 3000 ppm or 5.6 to 6.6... I had the same issue with my system and it's always the cell..Look inside the cell and if you can see white stuff inside, it needs to to be cleaned... The manual states to soak with vinegar for 6hrs.. I soak mine for 24, flush and soak again for 6hrs and flush again.. Comes our clean.. and the low salt alarm goes away until the next time the cell gets dirty with the white buildup... You can add an additive made by hth called "Cell Saver"..Prolongs the cleaning cycle... After you clean the cell and your filter, change your chlorinator cycle to 10 hrs with your pump to run 11 to12 until the pool clears and then lower to maintain the proper chlorine level.. Good luck and hopes this works for you.....
