Help with low flow on intext krystal clear saltwater system.

You can check the inlet line where it comes from the pool... Their is a little sreening/filtering system in the the parts that screw together and connect the valve to the pool... When I unscrewed mine, it was jammed with bugs, leaves, green algea... That did the trick for me... I am sure you already changed/cleaned the filter in the filter/pump that comes before the Salt water system... That will cause low flow as well...

Bought saltwater system last year ~ loved it!!! This summer the system continues to say, "low flow" and now the water is almost green???? Help!!!

Keep in mind, as soon as the system detects low flow, it turns the electrolytic cells off to prevent from burning them up.. If you have good flow and still get this alarm, check the flow sensor for dirty, stuck, defective or broken. See picture below..

Low flow keeps alarming

the manual doesn't tell u but the obvious solution is debris trapped in the filter that water flows from the pool to the pump. The one screwed into the pool liner. Unscrew the Blue cover , the one on the inside of the pool, and u will be surprised how much junk gets trapped in there, clean it out once and week and after vacuuming the pool

System is completely clean (all areas) and it still beeps low flow when we try to get it to clorinate. Is the sensor gone?

If you have checked intake and outake valves at pool end for clogs and opened all the way, cleaned skimmer if using one. checked for blocked air in the system, made sure pump filter is clean, confirmed water is going into the salt generator on right side, and out on the left side, checked that the flow sensor isnt loose, checked that the flow sensor hinge/flap moves freely and is clean, checked that the filter on the right side of the salt generator is clean (most common cause of this problem), and that the electrolytic plates are clear, and if the alarm comes back on after turning off the unit then turning it back on after checking all the above then the sensor probably is bad and you would have to contact Intex Service Center for a new one.

You've gotta keep that annoying filter pretty darn clean to please the saltwater pump. I have to scrub my filters daily for this reason. What pump do you have? Mine is rated for 4000gph but I see Intex even offers support for pumps with as little as 500gph.

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.
