A humming noise is a frequency noise meaning the motor is not running
check / replace the start/run capacitor for the pump motor
call an electrician for a proper diagnosis

How do i clean and backwash my krystal clear saltwater system model cs8110 pool. Also it is very cloudy and I cant see the bottom of my pool


Hello... Is this your first pool? If so, do you have a local pool chemical supply company? They will test a sample of your pool water with way better equipment than the test strips... Than they will tell you exactly what you need and how to apply them... This is my 4th year with this salt system and 18'x 4' intex pool... Starting them up is tricky and it still takes me weeks to get it right... But the pool store told me how to start it up for next year so hopefully it won't take as long...
The phrase backwash referes to cleaning the filter... With the intex filter/pump system, that is the filter cargtridge that inserts into the pump/filter housing... Close the pool valves, open the filter cartridge housing, take the filter out and hose it down with a garden hose... Before you return the filter, dump out the nasty water sitting in the filer/pump housing... the Return the filter, screw back on the cap, open the pool valves and open the vent screw on top of the filter cartridge housing lid... This allows the pool water to flow back into the filter/pump and removes unwanted air pockets in the hoses... Once the water flows out of the vent screw, screw it back down to stop the water coming out... Now your down backwashing the filer...

Hope this helps,
Dan

Sysrem keeps saying low flow


Three areas that can cause low flow 1) the intake on the pool, if you are using the pool sweep basket feature, then undo the connection at the pool wall and you will find that the wall filter is plugs with fin bug particles that can not make it past the wall screen. Clean and replace the hose to the wall. 2) the filter is clogged and dirty, clean the filter clean the filter compartment and replace, 3) you have an air leak allowing air to enter the pump system causing air to restrict the flow of water. Check the hose connection for leakage, check to make sure the bleeder valves are not loose or over tightened, as both will cause an air leak.

Hi I have ab 18x52' intex above ground pool with klear saltwater system, but I have algae in the bottom of the pool, please tell what to do to clean it without emptying the pool, and can i use any...


Get ready for a full weekend of cleaning your pool :) This is the chemical free method...
1st... Start with a clean filter...So clean your filter...
2nd.. Vacuum your pool and get most of the algae up from the bottom and sides.. Go slow so you do not stir up the algae. Make sure you use the vacuum attachment with brushes..
3rd..Clean your filter...
4th...repeat step 2 again...
5th... Clean your filter...
6th... Brush your pool with a pool brush to loosen the remaining algae..
7th... Set your pump timer for 12 hrs and your chlorinator for 10 to 11 of those hrs... and run for 3 days...
8th.. Check your water and see if has cleared and the algae is almost completely gone.. If so, check your free chlorine level and adjust your cycle down if at the required level..
9th.. if your chlorine level is not at optimal, run at the 12 hr cycle for 3 more days and check..
10th.. After water is clear and free of algae, clean your filter and adjust your cycle down to control your free chlorine level...
Good luck and hope this method works for you.. It has for me for over 2 years with my Intex Salt Water system...
Please take the time to rate me and write a comment... really appreciate!!!

My polaris only runs a short time and then just stops


With these pool cleaners, make sure that you check the filter screen in the filter and clean it if necessary. Clean the skimmer basket, pump basket, and pool filter. Check all of the hoses, connections, and swivels for leaks that could cause loss of water pressure. Make sure that your wheel RPM is correct.

My intex saltwater system does not fit on my summer escapes filter pump. My pool size is 16' x 42" and the pump sits on the ground. On end of the filter is high and the other is low (returm flow).


unfortunately every thing you mentioned is not reaaly important.
Bottom line is that Intex has there own size hoses and prevents easy installation with other manufacturers.
You will need to make a trip to home depot and buy a basket full of fittings and keep trying till one works

Hi- I'm a new intex above ground metal frame pool owner. I bought the saltwater chlorinator to go with my pool. I constantly have a problem with the pool filter not getting enough water to flow through...


You've gotta keep that annoying filter pretty darn clean to please the saltwater pump. I have to scrub my filters daily for this reason. What pump do you have? Mine is rated for 4000gph but I see Intex even offers support for pumps with as little as 500gph.

I have a saltwater pool system that was recently set up and the water seems to have a slight green tint to it and the walls and floors are slimy. Can you ''shock it'' with salt in the water?


yes but yu need more than just salt take a sample of water to pool shop you have way to much phosphurus in the pool you will need a shock tratment that has to be poured through skimmer box that goes through filter and increases pressure mommenterally salt alone will not fix. alkalinity is buggered as well you will need a buffer powder as well to get on top of it get water tested so you dont just waste your time
