Question about Intex Automatic Salt Water System for Above Ground Saltwater Pool
I have purchased a new pool pump motor complete unit its a onga ppp1100-02 since i have had it it has had new brushes in the motor i think they said it was fusion you can hear the motor load up but not rotate the pump. this has happened twice . i have drained the filter that is just prior to the pump allow the water to drain away then flick the switch on and off a few times and eventually it will then rotate the pump. i then put the lid back on to seal up prime the pump and away it goes. but after it shuts down on the timer it will not start again. this problem that has occurred doesnt allow the pump to be run on the timer. since it was repaired i have had no issues for nearly 5 months pump runs once a day turning on and off via a 24 hr timer. the pool capacity is approx 90,000 ltre approx. the pump is located about 6-7 mtr from the pool area where it draws from has a large sand filter and the spec's on the pump 1.25 hp with a head of 19 mtres and able to pump 400 lt/min. I was told this was more than capable of handling this volume etc. do you have any advise as to why this would fail so early in its life.
Does the pump hold prime when it's off? If a pump runs dry at first then primes it makes the pump and motor work harder. How many gallons of water is your pool?

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.....

Testimonial: "I am soaking the cell now. Will check it tomorrow and see what happens. "

If your salt is at the correct levels required for your pool and your still getting the "91" code on your LCD screen do not add more salt you need to clean the plates on the chlorinator. Look at your manual and it gives you instructions on how to remove, clean, and replace the chlorinator section on the pump. Reminder, if your PH and/or alkalinity levels are off you'll be cleaning the plates often because of the scale build up. I personally run my pump 4 hrs daily and I have never had a problem with green water however, once it did become cloudy (white) I began treating with algaecide and changing filter every 3 hrs. It cleared it right up. I love the Krystal Clear System.
