SOURCE: Keeps saying low salt level

I would say the rain is diluting the system at this point, or the system sensor has gone out. But if you had heavy rains I would be looking at that idea first.


thanks for using Fixya.

SOURCE: My saltwater pool tastes very salty, but my intex

Your salt is way to high if you can taste it. You will need to dilute with fresh water until you get the salt back down and then clean the cell for continued use.

It is possible that you do not have enough
even after disolving the salt by siring it up you need to run the filter for at least 24 hours to really disolve and mix your salt

even though you cant see it it is still not equally distributed through the water

once you have run the system for 24 hours check your salt content
It should be as close to 3000ppm as possible

a test kit will cost about 11 dollars for ten tests

Yes, you can add chlorine. Liquid chlorine will raise the ph a bit. Don't know what kind of shock you are adding, but wait a day, recheck ph level, than adjust.

My intex saltwater system pool is cloudy


The chlorine level maybe too low and it is allowing algae to start growing.
Check the Ph level, it should be around 7.
Check the chlorine level in the pools water, use your chlorine test kit.
Check the salt levels, make sure it is at the correct concentration, too low a salt level and the Intex will not be able to generate enough chlorine.

I have a 15x 42" intex metal frame pool an i also


Most likely you are not. The manual is very conservative!!! I have a 14000 gallon pool and I run my intex salt system during the summer at 10 to 12 hrs pump and 8 to 10 hrs chlorination in between those 12 hrs and my pool stays very clear. But..... If you don't clean the unit and let it alarm for low flow, low salt or not run the unit log enough, you WILL HAVE GREEN WATER!!!
Hope this helps, If it does, please rate the tip!

My pump keeps reading low salt it will run fine for about 2 to 3 hrs then the low salt alarm goes off. I have put in approx 240 lbs of salt I have at 16' x 48" pool. Please help


Your unit is malfunctioning...your pool @ ~5200 gallons, even from a no-salt in the water start-up should only need ~140 lbs. Are you certain it is reading low salt and not high salt or simply salt error? You can try diluting the water to get the salt levels below 3600, otherwise you need the unit serviced or replaced...generally with an intex, if that is what you have, it will mean replaced.

Low salt alarm on Intex system


so what does the test strip say. Should be as close to 3000ppm as possible anything close and under 2700ppm will trigger a low salt also you must run filter only for 24 hours to thouroughly mix the salt before trying to turn on the generator

My intex saltwater system green light then low salt light


You need to add salt to the water. How much depends on what size pool you have. Your owner's manual will tell you exactly how much to add when the low salt light comes on. On my Intex I would need to add 35 lbs.

My intex saltwater system pump is beeping ''91'' meaning ''low salt level''. Do I need to just add salt again?


Yes, and be sure to keep up with your pH as it will want to rise slowly over time when using a salt water chlorine generator.
