No the water does not to be changed, Just need to add salt. you can go to your local pool supply store for salt. Make sure you know how many gallons you have. You will need a system that converts your salt to cholorine. Good luck.

My pool is nasty green...waiting for intex saltwater unit to arrive. Do I need to drain pool before and put clean water in before I begin running this new pump?

I would start with a fresh clean pool if it's that nasty green!!! Drain and scrub all algae..
Did you already buy your salt?? Remember.. you will need to add your salt and run the pump without the chlorinator for 24 hrs to properly dissolve the salt.. If your not sure how much salt to buy, post again how many gallons your pool is and how much salt will you need and you should get an answer from one of us... Good luck....

When i change the pump filter let run for a while code 92 sets

2 reasons for this code...
1st... High salt level... You must check and should be between 2500 to 3000 PPM.. If higher, drain some water and fill with fresh water and re-check..
2nd... If salt level is okay, your electrolytic cell may have calcium buildup and must be cleaned and flushed.. Cap one end of the cell and fill with vinegar and soak for 6hrs+. Flush with water pressure until blades inside are clean and free of the "White Flaky" stuff...
Hope this helps you???
Good luck...

The filter wasn't changed for a couple of weeks and lots of leaves fell in our pool, I changed the filter put more salt but the pool water is getting greener and greener every day, what can I do? Intex...

Shock your pool ... take it to about 20 ppm and run the filter 24 hours a day. Brush the sides. When the pressure goes up 10 lbs over fresh start pressure, backwash or clean your cart as appropriate. Is your salt cell calling for more salt? Salt is persistent in the water (like CAL, salt doesn't just go away. The only way you loose either is by splash out and/or backwash.) If you dont know the level and your cell will not tell you, get tghe level checked at your pool place. You should have around 3200 ppm salt. Dont expect your salt system to keep up with the green stuff when the green stuff is established. You MUST use dry or liquid CL to overcome. You MUST brush the pool sides and bottom. You must run the filter 24 hours.

Between the green stuff and the sun, the CL your cell is making is consumed almost as fast as you make it.

Get your Cyanuric acid level to 80 ppm.

I hope this helps you ... Thanks for your interest in

We just replaced the T-cell for our pool. We were

Sound to me that you added wat to much salt.
If you are using a salt test kit that eads in colors throw it away and get a kit that reads in #.s
If you are using the one with #'s then proceed to getting your water to as close to 3000ppm as possible
Drain 20 % water ad fresh and check again keep doing this ti'll you get close to the 3000ppm

any lower than 2800 and you can read low salt and worse of all you will not produce enough chlorine any higher than 3500 and you will go cloudy and read high

It is my opinion that you were low salt and then adding to much salt put you to far to high

remeber anytime you add salt you should filter only for 12-24 hours to distribute the salt properly so the unit knows what it is reading

While adjusting your salt level clean your new cell with vinegar let it soak for a few hours You should have received a cap to cover one end of the cell while soaking
once cleaned it will not grab hold of the salt water until the generator is turned on

Just remeber 3000ppm

Saltwater pool is milky how can i fix it

I think you have too much salt in the water. Have your sater tested. Salt should be around 3200 ppm. If it is more, you will have to drain some water out and replace it with fresh.

High salt readings

Start by getting a salt test kit that reads in #'s not color strips.

you need to be at least 2800ppm so that you generate enough chlorine and no higher than 3800ppm
3000ppm in the best.

Now drain 10-20% of your water and add fresh. go as much as 30% if you are way over the 3800ppm and depending on how many gallons of water your pool holds

We keep getting code 92 (high salt). There water

From the FAQ, What should I do if code 92 appears?

There are several things you may need to check and do:

- Test the salt level first with Test Kit, drain approximately 20% of the pool water and refill with fresh water.
- If code 92 still appears despite the above step, there might be a electrolytic cell failure. Please contact Intex Service Center, and replace the cell if needed.
