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.

As mentioned in many of my post's, you can not just go by the reccomended amount of salt in the owners manual.
You must get salt test strips that read in #'s not colors and get your salt as close to 3000ppm as possible lower than 2800 and you will not generate enough chlorine or trigger low salt alarms
any higher than 3500ppm and you could get cloudy, or trigger high salt alarm
the water will also taste too salty when adding salt dont forget to stir up the water and filter only for at least 12 hours before trying to generate salt
the amount of salt that they reccomend in the book is just a starting point
You need to get a salt test kit that reads in #'s not colors
Get your pool to as close to 3000ppm as possible
lower than 2800ppm and you will not produce enough chlorine
any higher than 3500ppm and you can trigger high salt alarm, have bad tasting water, or even get cloudy water
Like you have done, when adding salt , filter only for 6 hours or so to fully disolve
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
Code 93 means the system is in Stand By (Operation Finished) mode. It will start the next cycle in 24 hours and run for the number of hours you have set,
88 Stand By (Start Up)
00 Zero Operating Hours
01 Min Operating Hour or (1 Hour Remaining)
02 thru 12 Operating Hours remaining
90 Alarm Code (Low Water Flow/No Flow)
91 Low Salt Level
92 High Salt Level
93 Stand By Mode (Operating Process Finished)
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
91 means Low Salt. I have seen this occur if the salt level is actually too low as well as when the plates have a large amount of white crystals on them. If your plates look clean (I use a pressure washer to clean them), check the salt level using salt test strips you can get at a pool supply store.
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!
