Your part can be purchased from intex. Just because it is not shown on the web site doesn't mean you can't get it. They have so many parts, sometimes they forget to list some. Call they will have it.

Should i use chemicals with my saltwater system


yes. the saltwater is merely a substitute form of chlorine. you must still balance the water as you would with any pool. you will need to adjust ph, alk, calcium, stabilizer. you also need to check the chlorine level on a regular basis as these systems are either on or off. they dont regulate the amount of chlorine in the water

There seem to be different versions of algae killer - look for one that specifies that it's safe with saltwater systems (sorry, not familiar specifically with Pool Shock)

Ok i have the intex 1600gph sand filter saltwater combo system and my pool hold 8000 gallons i can run the chlorinator 24 hrs a day and it will not get the chlorine and free chlorine above 1 the ph is 7.5...


Yes, what is your stabilizer level? It should be between 30 and 50 ppm. If the stabilizer is too low then the sun will cause the chlorine to dissipate faster than the chlorinator can produce it. Some salt chlorinator manufactures recommend 80ppm but that reduces the chlorine efffect. If you can't get the chlorinator working then using a floating tablet chlorinator is a good option to keep the pool open. I hope this helps.

I have a Intex saltwater pool, 14x48. It has brown spots on the bottom and in the creases of the liner. Could this be caused by copper? I was told to use vitamin C tablets and metal free solution to remove...


I had the same problem. My chlorinator was malfunctioning. I put a floating chlorine tablet dispenser in it and it cleared all of the brown spots. (Thank God.. brand new pool) Intex shipped me a new chlorinator after I emailed them a copy of my receipt.

Saltwater pool and my pool water is green


I just posted to another similar problem and I am terrible at typing I copied and pasted this for you


So many peolpe are led to believe that using a salt system takes away the need of other chemicals
This couldn't be further from the truth A salt system just makes it so that you do not have to physicaly ad liquid chlorine or float tablets

First of all lets get a little educated in pool maintainence 101 and then I will address your problem ( First problem was buying an Intex product ) but I will cover that too

You can not just blindly ad salt to the system
you need to get a salt test kit that reads in #'s not color
You need to get the water to as close to 3000ppm as possible
Any lower than 2700ppm and you can trigger low salt alarm, not to mention not generating enough chlorine
Any higher than 3500 and you can go cloudy, trigger high salt alarm and you could go cloudy

Now for the intex curse
not a single pump/filter is sufficient with the pools they come with
They are to small
A pool needs to be turned over at least 3-4 times in a cycle 24 hours
I do not know your gl or pump size so I will use generic #'s

If you have a 5000gl pool and a 1500gl pump thats 10 1/2 hours of filtering at the minimum
Use your #'s and figure out what you need to be doing

You want to start by getting your salt right this is crucial What it says in the manuals is just a starting point the fine tuning is up to you

Lets now side track and I will tell you how to cure your problem.
This is time consuming but will give you the best results

Blast out your paper cartridge with the water hose now ad 1 gallon ofliquid chlorine
Filter only for 24 hours now brush your pool with a pool brush not the bristles under your vaccum not enough of them to do any good
now clean the filter again and run for a few hours until you see things settle down
Vaccum and clean the filter and start over again
Check your chlorine if it is normal or low ad another 1/2 if it is super high then leave the chlorine step out
Once you are clear again or close to it Ad a non foaming algecide and also ad chlorine stabilizer this is a chemical that you put in a nylon sock and float it behind the ladder this will help hold the chlorine

Once your chlorine level is at the point you can swimm again you should get your best swimmer to get in with a tooth brush and clean the over flaps in the seems that are on the bottom and where the sides connect to the floor

This should do it

lets look at one more thing
Chlorine generation
There may be night that you need to run it 12 hours for chlorine and other nights 5 or so
It all depends on many factors
sun,heat,number of swimmers, sun tan oil and so on
The biggest thing you can do wrong is to not use the pool If it is not being used every day you should brush sides and floor every 3 days or so. The pump is not strong enough to circulate the water properly

One more thing that I do and I have not changed my filters in this being my 3rd season
I have 2 one is always drying
Start with a dry filter and have the other clean and drying
Change them every couple of days.
Never try to use a wet filter it does not work like a dry one
Dont ask why it is just one of those mysteries
Also periodicaly take the hose off the front of the motor your inlet hose this can build up hair and debris that gets in from skimming

Good Luck

Can chlorine be added to the saltwater intex system if salt has already been added


it can be added and also regular house hold bleach
why would you need more chlorine?
If you are needing more then something is wrong
If your salt content is not 3000ppm or more but not above 3800ppm then you are not going to be able to generate enough chlorine
Also you should be using a stabilizer that help hold chlorine content

After 5 days using saltwater system water is cloudy. Before installing new system no cloudy water. Help.


Intex salt water system does not keep your pool cleaner. It is only a means to not have to buy liquid or tablets
If your salt is not at 3000ppm not below 2700 not above 3800 you will not generate enough sanitizer ( chlorine )

You need a good stabilizer to help hold chlorine content and a good non foaming algecide which you would use every 5-7 days

Don't forget chlorine consumption is caused by many factors.

# of swimmers, heat, sun, rain, did any one sneak in with sun tan oils and so on and the worst thing for a pool is to not use it on a daily basis.

Get your money back on the salt system and go with what worked for you.
