Question about Intex 2000 GPH Salt Water Filtration Pump with Saltwater Chlorine Generator

2 Answers

Salt water system not working , alarm code 91 appeared and then the system shut off . after more salt was added (20 kg) and the electrolytic cell housing was removed and cleaned the system still isn't turning on . fuses are still good .It's only one year old by the way. Living in ontario canada I might as well drain the pool if I can't fix it right away . Sending it to california for warranty work seems rediculous.

If this pump is less than 90 days old, call intex they will replace it immediately without you having to send in the old one in the mean time get a salt tester kit and get your ppm to 3000ppm nothing else and dont take no for an answer :-) this is a great ppm to be at and adjust your chlorine and ph to that

Have an intex 16 x48" salt water pool generator


I checked the Intex web site and here is what they said:

There are several things you may need to check and do:

- Test the salt level first with Test Kit, and add salt as needed.
- Remove the electrolytic cell for inspection and clean it if necessary.
- If code 91 still appears despite the above steps, there might be a possible electrolytic cell
failure. Please contact Intex Service Center, and replace the cell if needed.

NOTE: Always turn the power off and disconnect power cord before cleaning and servicing.

I hope this helps.

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

Hello,
A few things to do or you will create your own problems.

First and for most you must filter for at least 12 hours after adding salt to distribute the salt completly

You can not just blindly ad salt like you said you added a bag.

Although the manuals have an amount of salt for different size pools it is just a starting point. It is up to you tp fine tune

you must get a salt test kit
the kind that reads #'s not color

Get your salt as close to 3000ppm as possible
any lower than 2700 and you will get a low salt alarm and you will also not be producing enough chlorine
any higher than 3500 and you can go cloudy, trigger high alarm, and the water will taste nasty
you can even trigger low salt with too much salt content
So remember 3000ppm

If you are higher than the 3500 then drain 20% water and fill with fresh
continue this until you get to close to 3000

If low follow directions for low salt either on the test directions or bag of salt

I have had my system for this being the 4th season and have never cleaned the cells

any way, when you get the pool to around 3000 filter only for about 12 hours then turn on your generator

It should work fine

Hello,
the amount of salt that they reccomend in the book is just a starting point
You need to get a salt test kit that reads in #'s not colors
Get your pool to as close to 3000ppm as possible
lower than 2800ppm and you will not produce enough chlorine
any higher than 3500ppm and you can trigger high salt alarm, have bad tasting water, or even get cloudy water
Like you have done, when adding salt , filter only for 6 hours or so to fully disolve

Registering low salt


Hello,
your pool has approximately 12,500 gallons of water
this calls for about 310 pounds of salt.
One of your problems can be the acis rain ate away at your salt content
You really need to get aalt test strip kit the kind that reads #'s not the colored strips
Get you salt to as close to 3000ppm as possible to low towards 2700 will throw off the alarm and also to high around 3800 and up will alarm also.
It is also possible to have to much salt and the unit will read 91

Get the pool to 3000ppm either by draining 20% or so and adding fresh water or adding salt which with your amount so far I am thinking you will need to lower it

Run filter only to thouroughly mix the pool for at least 24 hours before trying to generate chlorine.
In the meantime also take your electro cell and soak it in vinegar for 4-6 hours rinse well and put it back together

Code 91


If you have hard water in your location you may want to try cleaning the electrolytic plate. I had the same issue where no matter how much salt was added I had code 91. I shut the water down going through the filter / generator. Pulled the outlet hose off and put on a cap. Pulled copper cell out and filled chamber with vinegar. Put cell back in and let set for 1 hour. Fluhed it out and hooked everything back up. Nop more salt problems. The process is in the book.
