Make sure you have at least 3000ppm of salt content'

set your timer for generation - the green chlorine light will not come on for at least 5 minutes sometimes up to ten

make sure you run the generator for at least 4-6 hours the first time

The short answer is add some chlorine. Clean your cell and assure it is operating normally per you owner instruction. Normally, the manufacturer recommends physical cleaning followed by acid wash. Of course use the usual safety precautions when using muratic acid.

Conditioner? Is that Cyanuric Acid? or is this a sequestering agent for removing metal?

Hello,
First of all green water can arrise from a lot of different situation.
Low chlorine is one of them coupled with the crappy filter that comes with the intex pools it does not filter enough.

Start with getting your salt level to 3000ppm
any lower than 2700 and you will not generate enough chlorine and any higher than 3500 and you could go cloudy or trigger high salt alarms

you need to get the salt test kit that reads in #'s not color the color ones has to much of a variance
once your salt is at 3000 clean your cell then filter filter filter

I run my filter 24/7 if it is not generating chlorine I am filtering.

Clean your cartridge every few days
I have had the same 2 cartridges for this being my 4th season and have never been green or replaced the filters.
Also I reccomend a non foaming algecide

Just follow directions on bottle

Chlorine generator not working(brand new)


Super shock your pool ... take it to around 20 ppm CL using liquid or powdered CL. Brush your pool daily for several days ... run your filter at least 16 hours a day ... 24/7 would be better. Maintain 5 ppm CL and brush weekly after you get the algae under control.

I am not impressed at all with these salt water chlorinators.Shock the water and keep the filter running next day add a powdered chlorine.filter still running. check the balance with test strip in about four hours.If chlorine level is good start vacuming the algee off the bottom of the pool. Now throw away the salt generator and stay with the chlorine packs every week to two weeks continue to monitor with test strips

I am not an expert on the Duoclear but I have had mine for 5 years and have not had any problems. This unit and all salt water systems will not generate chlorine when the water temperature is below 65 degrees f. I am not saying that this is why yours is not generating chlorine, just commenting in case you were unaware.

No warning code, green light on but no chlorine produced???????


make sure your ppm is at least 3000 low salt may not trigger an alarm but is not sufficient for generating chlorine

also make sure you are running the generator for at least 4-6 hours to give the chlorine time to register

the system itself blows out very minute amounts of chlorine but build up after hours of being on

No light on cell status on my chlorine generator


What brand of salt water chlorine generator do you have?
Have your water tested professionally at a pool store. Balance the pool water chemistry. Check the electrolytic cell for any calcium deposits on plates and follow manufacturer's instructions to clean.
