Just got saltwater system ...added correct amount of salt, bought salt tester, enough salt in water, actually 2500, should be around 3000, however, pump keeps saying code 93 too much salt, also soaked in vinegar & water, filter just won't work right, we also drained 20% of pool and added fresh water, have tried all troubleshooting, help please
Code 93 is telling you that the system is done running, did you mean to say it said 92? That code would be for too much salt.
If indeed it is a Code 92 you are getting, give Intex a call, or email. I have found their website to be very helpful, they have a F&Q's area.

If the salt level is around 3000 ppm and the cells do not have any white calcium build up, you may have a bad electrolytic cell.. Had the same issue with mine.. After I bought a new unit, problems went away and not had an issue.. Found the new model at Wal-Mart for 149.00 with a free 50.00 gift card.. Like paying 99.00, great deal... Good luck Jim!!!
Your pool should be between 5000 and 5500 gallons= between 125 to 135lbs of salt... They come in 40lb bags... Your salt PPM should also be 2500 and 3000.. Test strip reading at 6.2 to 6.6
Add your salt by spreading around the pool and run your pump only for 24 hrs to properly disolve the salt.. Then you can set and start your chlorinator... Good luck and enjoy your pool...
ok, it is time to stop guessing on how much salt to add or take out.
You need to be as close to 3000ppm as you can
anything under 2700 and you will not generate enough chlorine. any thing above 3500 and you can go cloudy, have build up, or just plain taste terrible.
you need a test kit for salt that reads in #'s not color
the color salt kits have too much varience
If you are over, drain 20% of the pool and ad fresh water keep doing this till you get close to 3000ppm
If you are under then ad the amount of salt stated in the test directions.
Once at 3000 clean your cell again.
you should be good to go
Dont forget that once at 3000 you must keep an eye on the level because of rain and adding water for splash out
A few things to do or you will create your own problems.
First and for most you must filter for at least 12 hours after adding salt to distribute the salt completly
You can not just blindly ad salt like you said you added a bag.
Although the manuals have an amount of salt for different size pools it is just a starting point. It is up to you tp fine tune
you must get a salt test kit
the kind that reads #'s not color
Get your salt as close to 3000ppm as possible
any lower than 2700 and you will get a low salt alarm and you will also not be producing enough chlorine
any higher than 3500 and you can go cloudy, trigger high alarm, and the water will taste nasty
you can even trigger low salt with too much salt content
So remember 3000ppm
If you are higher than the 3500 then drain 20% water and fill with fresh
continue this until you get to close to 3000
If low follow directions for low salt either on the test directions or bag of salt
I have had my system for this being the 4th season and have never cleaned the cells
any way, when you get the pool to around 3000 filter only for about 12 hours then turn on your generator
although you are close to the amount of salt that is recommended all pools are just different enough that the salt table is just a starting point if you do not have enough salt it is still possible to not trigger the alarm but not produce enough chlorine.
Start by getting a salt test strip kit and get your pool to 3000ppm this may take a day or so since you really need to filter and circulate the pool for 24 hours in between adding salt
Once you get the salt right then move on to generating
also do not worry about total chlorine you just need to concentrate on free chlorine this is the amount available in the pool to do it's job and dont forget to ad a stabilizer to help hold the chlorine level on hot sunny days
high concentration? Salt is salt except for the fact in aq pool you want 98% pure and it must not be iodized salt
Also before generating salt with the timer you must have the right amount of salt
the #'s in the manual are just guidelines
get a salt test kit and get your pool to 3000ppm you need to filter only 24 hours or so getting to the 3000ppm wheather you ad salt or need to drain water and ad fresh none the less get it to 3000ppm
Now worry about your chlorine level if it is to high leave alone until it comes down if too low then run the generator for a few hours if it does not show on the scale at all try 4-6 hours
you will get a knack for the amount of time you need for your chlorine situation
if once all of this is set right and you still get high reading on salt unit take it apart as directed and spray it out with the garden hose
it is really simple only 4 screws
Ours said low salt too after we had added enough, then added 25 pounds more. I was really worried of adding too much because then you have to drain it and start all over again! We waited about 6 hours after adding the last amount, giving it plenty of time to dissolve, and now it's working fine. How long are you waiting in between additions of new salt and running the system? Good luck!
