Get an aqua vac and suck out the water (with the dissolved detergent)from the salt container. Refill it with water and repeat the process couple of times. Fill the container with water and salt and it should be fine. Good luck !!

SOURCE: Salt Indicator Light Flashes Permanently On Indesit IDE 750 dishwasher

I've had the same problem on my Indesit (IDL-730, IDL730) and after pouring in salt until full for ages, without the light going out, I finally decided to do the reverse.
I left it to run down the salt over a couple of months, until well empty (not ideal, but I was getting desperate!), and then finally refilled it.
Problem solved - salt error light was no longer on
All I can figure is that a blockage had set in and casued the issue. Leaving it to clear over time sorted it.
Hope this helps in your situation.

SOURCE: Low salt light

try stirring the water in the salt container. however, as long as you renew the salt now and again, it doesn't matter

The low salt light is on and is not making chlorine. Salt level topped up yesterday as per pool shop sample. Chlorinator stopped sometime yesterday


the salt light indicates more than low salt level. now that you have eliminated that possibility, if the light is still on, there may be several possible causes. the cell may be dirty, or nearing its end of life, there might be restricted water flow or the water is too cold. these are all easy and inexpensive to check

My generator first indicated low salt. I've added plenty of salt, and it still indicated low salt. I turned it off for 24 hours, and tried it again, now it has the service indicator light on,what next ?


We've found with our saltwater system (which doesn't have a service light, so not the same model as yours) that we have to add far more salt than we expect before the 'low salt' indicator goes off. It also seems to be very tempramental whenever it's been off for a while (such as over winter) & needs to run for very short bursts at first before working up to normal operating times.

Our water is soft and does not require salt. how do we stop the red light


I think it might depend on the model # and it should be in your manual.

Example for a G858 SCVI plus instructions (without pictures) are;

Bypassing the salt indicator

If your water is soft (below 8 gr/gal) the
salt reservoir should not be filled with
salt. The indicator will remain lit and
should be disregarded or bypassed.

Remove the salt reservoir cap.

Looking into the salt reservoir, you will
see the top of the float chamber on the
right hand side, a.

Using a screwdriver, carefully pivot
the float chamber towards the center
of the reservoir.

Using needle nose pliers, pull the
cap, b, off of the float chamber, and
remove the float, c.

Replace the float chamber cap, push
the chamber back into its upright position,
and replace the salt reservoir cap.
The "Salt" indicator should no longer be
lit.

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.

Hi, from the photos I see on the web, it looks like you hold the salt chamber and then unscrew the nut on the top of the unit. I would say that you need to then pour out the salt into a small container, and then grasp the bottom (pepper chamber) and pull up on the salt chamber to separate it from the bottom chamber. Fill the pepper chamber and then replace the salt chamber and fill with salt, replace salt cover and then replace nut. I hope this helps.
