There is an in line screen where your pump flows into the chlorinater. Take off the hose and take out the filter to clean it. This is something I had to do every 2 or 3 days when my kids were using the pool regularly. It gets trapped with lint and what not. I just clean it out in the tub or with the garden hose. Be sure to make sure that black washer gets put back in properly before you put it back together. It tends to fall out when the water from the filter washes through it. Of course it could be something else. But this has been my experience and I've had one of these for 3 years now.

this might sound crazy but the 'no flow' light doesnt always mean there is no flow. if the system has a problem (low salt, low flow etc) it will stop chlorine production. to indicate that there is no production, the no flow light illuminates. check the salt level (min4000 ppm) if that checks ok, then be sure that the water is warmer than 65 degrees. make sure that the cell is clean and that the connections are clean/secure

After modifying our 20x 48 Summer Escapes pool to utilize our Intex Saltwater system - why is the saltwater pump showing low flow?


Index salt chlorinators need a certain flow rate. Check the flow rate on your pump to see if it is strong enough.

Most low flow alarms are caused by the pump stopping before the chlorinator cycle ends. You must set the chlorinator hrs between the pump cycle. Start and set your pump cycle, wait at least15 to 30 minutes and then set you chlorinator hrs and make sure to it completes it's cycle at least 15 to 30 minutes before the pump cycle ends, If your pump turns off before the chlorinator cycle ends, you will get a low flow alarm......

I have done everything the manual says, but my saltwater system will not stop blinking error code 91. The salt level is fine, and the cell is clean. Do I need to replace the cell. My pool is now green and...


Bummer!!! Looks like you checked both things that would cause the code 91 error for "Low Salt". Here's what I've done to solve my low salt "91 code in the past.. I overshoot by 1/2 bag = 20lbs of the recommended salt add quantity when the code appears. Calculate by using this formula..
.0067 X Pool Gallons. I have a 14,000 gallon pool and when I get the 91 code for low salt, I add about 110 lbs of salt. Manual says 93 lbs...let it circulate for 24 hours by running the pump only and then start the chlorination cycle.. Before doing this, you MUST make sure the cell in clean.. If any calcium buildup inside, it can give you a false "Low Salt" alarm.

I hope this helps!!

If this helps, please rate... Thanks

I lost my manual, What do the codes mean on the salt water chlorenator in particular the code "93"?


88 ia str8 filtering
90 is low flow
91 is low salt
92 is high salt
93 is sleep mode

after running the amount of hours you set for chlorine generation it will shut down and display 93
The system wil then turn back on 24 hours later for the same amount of time

this is ok but every day is different you may need 5 hours and sometimes 12 or any where in between

to reset just unplug and plug back in

To further help you look up some of my posts on green water and low salt I am positive you will find them very helpful

It says low flow, how can i fix it. its a Intex Automatic Salt Water System for Above Ground Saltwater Pool


After five years of using our pool each summer, we assembled it last week and I kept getting the "low flow" warning (with irritating beeping) even though the water flow was very good. I disassembled the unit and checked the flow switch, and found that the switch itself was the culprit. Here's what I did: (this is probably not recommended by Intex...) I unscrewed the main portion of the salt water purifier (the part with the digital display on top) from the base and lifted it up to expose the circuit board and wiring. All the fuses were intact and everything looked good. At the bottom of the circuit board, about an inch from the right edge is where I found the connections for the flow sensor. One was marked "flow" and the other was "grnd". I removed the plugs that run to the slow switch, closed the circuit by making a direct connection between the two plugs, and voila! No problem. I ended up cutting the wires about 1-1/2 inch from the plugs and connecting them with a wire nut, then I plugged them back in. The unit is working perfectly again.

If you attempt this, make sure the unit is unplugged and be careful when dealing with the circuit board. Don't be intimidated, it's not a high-voltage connection you are working with, you are simply closing the circuit and telling the board that the switch is closed as it would be with adequate water flow. I was comfortable making this "modification" and bypassing the flow sensor because we have several years of experience with our pool and because I clean and swap out our pump filter every day during summer, and because we know the difference between strong and weak flow just by checking the inlet and outlet ports in the pool.

I hope this helps someone! It took care of my problem. Best of luck.

If your pool has the skimmer system there is a hose coming from the bottom of the skimmer to the wall of the pool which would be your suction to the pump. Disconnect the hose clamp from the suction port that goes through the wall of the pool remove the hose then unscrew the blue adapter on the inside of the pool there you will find a strainer / screen. Whatever gets pass the basket in the skimmer get's plugged up in that screen causing the pump to starve for water causing the LOW FLOW sensor to go off on the Saltwater pump.

Let me know if this helps any.
