You possibly have a leak in the pool. Friend of mine was dumping a 100lbs of salt in his pool each week. Problem solved when they found out he had a crack (causing 4-5 inches of water to leak in a 24 hour period). This allowed alot of the salt to leave the pool. What remained was used by his saltwater system to create chlorine.

Model CS8111 ... How much salt do i put in an Intex Easy Set Up Pool 15 x 48" for the 1st time?


The ideal salt level is between 2500-3000 ppm (parts per million) for this model - the optimal level is 3000ppm.
For a round pool with your dimensions of 15 feet across and 48" deep, with the water at 80% capacity (it's not filled to the top right?) = 3736 gallons. So the amount of salt you need to add initially to get to 3000ppm is 95 lbs of salt.
When low salt is detected (Code 91) you are supposed to add 20 lbs of salt (what the manual says).
Here is a link to the manual that I found : (see page 133)

Water is clear but chlorine and copper still low, what I need to do?


The salt generator only works when the pool pump is running. If you want a higher chlorine level, run the pump longer. Also, to keep your chlorine in the pool, be sure to adjust the stabilizer level. (25 ppm for salt systems). As for copper, this level should be 0 at all times

Get a pool brush and brush your pool daily with it. Make sure your Chlorine level is at least 5 (I would like to see it at 10). Add dry chlorine to yor ool if you have to to get it to this level.

Alternatively, brush the sides and bottom daily with a hand brush. Keep the filter tunning until the algae is gone.

Brand new! Never had a pool before. I find no instructions in the manual for adding salt. We bought salt and on the bag it said to add to skimmer. When we did it stopped up the filter immediately upon...


Spread around the edge of pool with a cup. Make sure it's pool salt and not rock salt or pellets. Will take some time to do, large pools will take up to 350 lbs of salt and careful not to get into eyes. Run pump only for 24 hours to properly dissolve and then you can program your unit. If large pool, start at 10 to 12 hours pump with 8 to 10 hours chlorinating.Check daily for chlorine level and adjust from there... Good luck!

For starters I would bring a sample of your water to a pool store and they usually test it for free. They will then make recommendations. Be certain that everything you add to a pool is necessary based on the test results. If you are draining or partially draing the pool then sometimes chemicals recommended by the pool supply store will not be necessary. The following is what I would do to keep a pool blue:
1. Make sure salt is at the recommended concentration.
2. Only shock the pool to if the chloring level has droped below about 2 ppm.
3. Place the recomended dose of stabilizer in the pool.
4. Make sure pump and filter are working properly.
5. Check the pool chemistry on a daily basis for about a week to. I recommend test strips that at least measure chlorine, Ph and stabilizer.
6. Check the chemistry on a weekly basis and clean the pool and equipment according to the pool instructions.

Smile, you are a pool manager.

In three days my electode is clogged up my salt build up.so I get a low salt alarm


ok, it is time to stop guessing on how much salt to add or take out.
You need to be as close to 3000ppm as you can
anything under 2700 and you will not generate enough chlorine. any thing above 3500 and you can go cloudy, have build up, or just plain taste terrible.

you need a test kit for salt that reads in #'s not color
the color salt kits have too much varience

If you are over, drain 20% of the pool and ad fresh water keep doing this till you get close to 3000ppm

If you are under then ad the amount of salt stated in the test directions.
Once at 3000 clean your cell again.
you should be good to go

Dont forget that once at 3000 you must keep an eye on the level because of rain and adding water for splash out

We just replaced the T-cell for our pool. We were


Sound to me that you added wat to much salt.
If you are using a salt test kit that eads in colors throw it away and get a kit that reads in #.s
If you are using the one with #'s then proceed to getting your water to as close to 3000ppm as possible
Drain 20 % water ad fresh and check again keep doing this ti'll you get close to the 3000ppm

any lower than 2800 and you can read low salt and worse of all you will not produce enough chlorine any higher than 3500 and you will go cloudy and read high

It is my opinion that you were low salt and then adding to much salt put you to far to high

remeber anytime you add salt you should filter only for 12-24 hours to distribute the salt properly so the unit knows what it is reading

While adjusting your salt level clean your new cell with vinegar let it soak for a few hours You should have received a cap to cover one end of the cell while soaking
once cleaned it will not grab hold of the salt water until the generator is turned on

Just remeber 3000ppm

I have an Intex Ultra Frame 24'x52" pool. We are installing the saltwater filtration system today. How much salt will be need to use and are there any other chemicals we should use for the initial setup?


I HAVE THE SAME POOL FOR YOUR FIRST START UP ADD 310 OF POOL SALT. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A INTEX SALTWATER CHLORINATOR I WOULD SUGGEST GETTING ONE. IT WILL GIVE YOU READINGS ON LOW SALT, HIGH SALT, AND ALSO HAS A BOOST FOR COPPER IONIZATION, WHICH KILLS ALGEA AND BACTERIA. MIX YOUR SALT AROUND THE POOL AND LET THE PUMP CIRCULATE IT. GET A TEST KIT TO CHECK YOUR SALT LEVEL. IT SHOULD BE AT .OO3 OR 3 PPM. TO DO A GOOD JOB OF KEEPING YOUR WATER CIRCULATED YOU MAY NEED TO UPGRADE YOUR PUMP FROM THE 2500 GPM TO THE 4000 GPM PUMP. THE INITIAL SALT YOU ADD SHOULD GET YOU IN THE BALL PARK. AFTER CIRCULATING AND SWIMMING A FEW TIMES CHECK THE LEVEL AND IF TO HIGH LET OUT WATER AND ADD FRESH, IF TO LOW ADD MORE SALT. ONCE SET YOU SHOULD BE GOOD TO GO AND ENJOY FOR THE SEASON. HOWEVER I RECCOMEND CHECKING YOUR POOL LEVELS WEEKLY. HOPE THIS HELPS.

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.

No chlorine reading


Salt is sodium chloride, you can only measure salt levels now as your CL (cloride) is bound to a NA (sodium). Table salt =NACL, Your Intex system will tell you if your salt level is too high or too low but your old test equipment for free chlorine will continue to tell you no chlorine as it can't react with the chloride any longer as it is bound to the salt. That is why they tell you you never have to add more because the salt stabilizes it. Your chlorine is there it's bound to the salt. Use the pool it's fine and it makes your water feel really soft! Just keep the salt level right and your fine> It's confusing as they call the unit a chlorine generator! I had the same issue, called Intex and they told me the above.
