Question about Pool & Spa
I've tried to reset the clock, I've then re-set the timer, I've cleaned the filter system (Cartridge), I've cleaned the skimmer box, I've cleaned the pool in order to give the system the best go, still got a problem.
It sounds like the overload is triping. Check each individual electric load such as pumps etc.

The most like problem is the chlorinator has stopped working.
Most salt water chlorinators have a circuit breaker which cut power to the electrolyte cell if there is an overload or short condition. Check the circuit breaker, reset is necessory.
The other possible problem with the chlorinator is that voltage/DC current is supplied to the electrolyte cell via a low voltage transformer and rectifying circuit. if these components are faulty then the electrolyte cell will not produce chlorine. When the electrolyte cell is working normally you can see tiny bubbles of hydrogen and oxygen coming off the cell.

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

salt does not solve your problem.
People do no realize that all the salt does for you is that it eliminates having to pour regular chlorine in.
Everything else stays the same as a normal pool with just plain ole h2o
The dilema is that intex filters are to small for the job that needs done especially in your case now that you have the dreaded green monster
your solution is to first get it cleared up
shock your pool with 2 gallons of liquid chlorine and then filter filter filter
You will need to brush the dead algea and vaccum once or twice a day for a couple of days and you must clean that cartridge 3-4 times a day with the garden hose
you will be surprised how much green it will trap
once pool starts to clear and the chlorine level starts to come back down from Mars you can start using your generator again.
you will need to find the amount of time thatorks for you but 3-4 hours will not cut it in the hot weeks
Chlorine consumption is due to #of bathers, heat ,sun, rain so any given day will dictate a different amount of generation needed keep it high so you do not get algea again about 3.0
you also got algea because you were not stiring up the pool enough you again need to filter filter filter every day
try to find some of my other postings with more specifics

although you may or may not have enough chlorine in your pool you must also realize that a pool need turned over at least 3 times a day.
an example is if you have 7000gl of water and a 2000gph pump you need to filter at least 10 hours or so.
More important than chlorine is the actual circulation of the water you can have all the chlorine in the world but if you do not have the circulation the water will become cloudy or green this also happens when you have no swimmers for days at a time
the filtration time is over and above the chlorine generating time your 4 hours a night for generating chlorine sound like you are guessing sometimes it may be 4 and sometimes 2 or 6
it depends on # of swimmers a day sun and what was in the pool to start
It is important to have a test kit for ph and chlorine and keep chlorine at 1.0to 1.5 now set your ph
ph will rise and fall with your chlorine level one you have them set good at the first time then ph should stay safe enough and re level as chlorine is kept right
also remeber that the wrong ph causes more problems than wrong chlorine levels
Also make sure your salt is no more than 3000ppm and no higher like some people recommend and no lower than 2500 test kits are available for 10 dollars
all of this can be found on intex.com either in a video or pdf files for water capacity and approximate time for generating chlorine.
to be sure always use test kits
