If the water is leaking, it sounds like you have a connection problem or a hair line fracture in your pool filter. Check all of your connections for loose ones and you should be able to repair the leak.

What kind of pump are you using?
Sounds like the Intex is restricting water flow there by heating up your pump and shutting it down..
You may need to re plumb everything to handle the flow.
Intex hoses and fittings are different than the industry standards just so the can make you buy from them
Do what ever it takes to get good flow

How do you fix a leak to a 15x48 swimming pool without emptying all the water? it's a small leak on a seam near the ground.pool has been up a week & no leak, until tonight?

They make underwater patch kits that are very simple to use. You cut a patch and apply glue, fold the patch in half with the glue faceing in. take it to the leak and slowley unfold against the hole. smooth out and make sure edges are sealed down. Keep pressure on the patch as instructed on package. Then let cure. Good luck.

I have a intex 15'x 48" pool and a8110 salt water chlorinator. Iwould like toknow what type and how much salt I need? It's my first pool. Any set up advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks O.G/

beleive it or not all pools are not created equal
you can have 2 different brand pools the same size and they will have different water capacity
in your case since you did not tell what model pool we will go the average route

15x48 is an average of about 4000gl
that translates to about 100 pounds of salt
most important is to get a salt test kit and a chlorine/ph test kit both for about 10 bucks each
start with 75 pounds salt throwing it right in the pool then pushing it around to help dissolve it like with a brush

you want 98% pure pool salt, not iodized salt best to get this from a pool store 40lbs for 8-10 dollars
remember not to let them sell you thiungs you do not need or give bad advice

once salt is in and partially disolved turn on filter only for 24 hours
now check salt level with kit
it is imparitive to have your salt level at as close to 3000ppm as you can

you can be as high as 4000ppm but remeber the higher it is the more salt taste you will have any lower than 2500 then it is hard to generate chlorine when needed

try to find some of my other posts dealing with cloudy water and green water and you will read more info on filtering which is a major factor
