SOURCE: Intex salt water chlorinator I added a higher flow

your pump has nothing to do with chlorine generation.
You need to get a salt test kit that reads in #'s not colors.
Now get your salt to 3000ppm or as close to it as you can.
The amount of salt reccomended in the manual is just a starting point
any lower than 2800 and you will not produce enough sanitizer and over 3600 and your pool can go cloudy, taste bad, and rust metal parts

SOURCE: did not filtering added salt destroy the

you probably didn't ruin it, just caused it to not know what to do.
In my opinion your problems started with actually being low salt.

In a panic and not realizing the proper way to test for 3000ppm you were probably low

you then got the new unit and were ready to have the same problem

If you do have high salt ( over 3500 ) you can create calcium on the plates and render them impossible to correctly read therefore giving alarms. you can also create severe corrosion on metal ladders thus putting metals in your pool and creating a new problem. Your pools chlorine will get eaten away quickly by the metals and with low or no sanitizer you will go green very fast.

So did you ruin the plates with high salt? I dont believe so. Your pool just wasnt in line abd if you had cleaned the plates with the vinegar treatment you still would have been in the same boat

all of the intex chlorinators are made the same but they are not exactly calibrated the same. They are close but not close enough so were one system might read the salt content ok the next may not

I am not sure if you were using any test kit at all but make sure you stay away from the salt test that reads in colors. The # test kit is right on the money where as the color one just gets you in the ball park

You must also remember that when it rains or you ad water because of splash out you may go low on salt. Just remeber 3000ppm
it takes a lot of rain or frsh water to alter your salt content but again if you are more on the low side of the 3000 then you would need to ad salt sooner

Please go to my name and look up my other posts dealing with low flow and gowing green

I am sure you will learn quite a bit and it should help you to have a more pleasurable experience with your pool..

start using the chemicals I mention in those posts cause once you go green it is hard and back breaking to get your pool back to clear

Why does my salt level get low


You can get a false low salt reading if your chlorinator cell is very dirty. Before adding more salt clean the chlorinator cell as per your maintenance manual.

I can't explain all of this but to get the rid of the green and reduce the salt level you need to drain half the water and refill. At this you need to shock it so the chlorine is up to about 10 ppm. You need some way of testing to tell this. If your chlorinator is ok then when you start the pump and chlorinator it should continue cleaning it out. The dead algae will be filtered out with the filter. If the flow slows down you will need to clean the filter with a water sprayer on a hose. I hope this helps.

My pool is cloudy and I added clarifier and it still won't clear. I checked the salt count and it's reading 1100 ppm. We have a 15 foot round 48 inch deep pool. I also shock the pool weekly...


1st... Your salt count should be at 3000 ppm... For your size pool, the start-up salt needed should be about 95 to 110 lbs..
2nd... Run your pump for 24 hrs without the chlorinator after you have reached the 3000 ppm to properly disolve the salt and use only "pool salt"
3rd... Set your pump at 12 hrs and your chlorinator at 10 to 11 of those hrs until you have reached the desired chlorine level.
4th.. After your pool water has cleared, within 2 to 3 days...clean your chlorinator electrolytic cell and adjust your time down to maintain the proper chlorine level..

Hope this helps and if it does, please rate and comment....
Good Luck!!!

You don't want to swim in water that has algae... 1st ...Make sure you have the correct amount of salt. See you manual for amount needed. Must set you pump timer first and sync your chlorinator between that time, if pump turns off before chlorinator cycle ends, you will get an "Low flow" alarm. Set you pump timer to run 12 hours and the chlorinator for 10 to 11 of those hours and should see results within 3 days or so. After that, If you live in an area that is hot, 10 hours pump and 8 to 9 chlorinator... Hope this helps...

My low salt light on my Hurlcon vx7t salt chlorinator keeps comming on.How do i adjust it?


A low salt level warning is indicated on your VX Chlorinator if the salt level drops. If Low Salt is indicated, check again in 24 hours and then if it is still indicated, add two 25kg bags of salt to the shallow end of your pool. Run the filtration system for approx. 6 hours to help mix the salt in the pool. It can take up to a day for the salt to fully dissolve.
If the low salt light is still on, then you should get your pool water tested. If the Salinity is above 4000ppm then you may need to have your Chlorinator checked.
Warning: Some people recommend that you put salt directly in the skimmer box. This is a very bad practice as it allows very high concentrations of salt to be passed through your filtration and other pool equipment.
Hope this helps.

Intex 9 x 18 ultra pool with salt water system. Came home and low salt light on added up to 40lbs and continues to be on. Don't want to add anymore please advise.


IF YOUR CHLORINATOR IS DIRTY IT WILL GIVE YOU THIS READING. USE HOUSEHOLD VINEGAR TO CLEAN THE CHLORINATOR PLUG 1 END AND FILL ABOVE THE PLATES AND THE COPPER IONIZATION ELEMENT. LET SOAK I HOUR AND BACKFLUSH WITH POOL WATER . HOOK IT BACK IN THE SYSTEM AND THAT SHOULD FIX THE PROBLEM. IF NOT CHECK THE POOLS SALT CONTENT. IT SHOULD BE .003 PPM. IF NOT ADD SALT ACCORDING TO THE MANUAL ON YOUR SIZE POOL.
