SOURCE: I have a saltwater pool The pump we're using is

You should not blindly ad salt
you need a salt test strip that reads in #'s not color
get your water to 3000ppm any lower than 2800ppm and you will not generate enough chlorine
any higher than 3500 and you could get cloudy water and trigger high salt reading not to mention the bad taste

continue what you are doing in addition add 1 gl of liquid chlorine to shock the pool with cleaning your cartridge out every 4-6 hours
once it starts clearing up start using a non foaming algaecide every 5-7 days just use the directions on the botttle Since you already have an algae problem, even though it will be clearing up you should go for the maximum dose the first time

As for OUR pump/filter/salt combo it is a piece of ****

I do not know your gl of water but here is a generic set

a pool needs turned over 3-4 times minimum in a day
so if you have a 5000gl pool and our filter at 2000gl ph you need to run it at least 7 1/2 hours at bare minimum

I now run mine 24/7 I generate chlorine over night and filter during the day even when being used
also you should check the front of your motor where the hose goes in this catches debris and hair that the skimmer lets in
with these pumps you need all of the flow you can get

speaking of flow we do not get enough of it so it is very important to use the pool every day if you are not then at least brush it every few days once you are green free

another thing to do is once you get the pool back to swimable

Have your best swimmer get in and clean under the seems with a toothbrush inside the pool
in the liner you should have 2 seems in the floor and one around the bottom between floor and side
you now will have a build up of algae in these seems that will not completely go away with shocking since it is protected by being wedged under the seem
Physically lift and scrub
any more questions let me know

please remember to rate this help

I have an Intex Krystal Clear Saltwater System, model CS8111. My problem is green water. I had been out of town for a few days and when I came home the pool was green. Also the low salt light was on. I...

If your salt is at the correct levels required for your pool and your still getting the "91" code on your LCD screen do not add more salt you need to clean the plates on the chlorinator. Look at your manual and it gives you instructions on how to remove, clean, and replace the chlorinator section on the pump. Reminder, if your PH and/or alkalinity levels are off you'll be cleaning the plates often because of the scale build up. I personally run my pump 4 hrs daily and I have never had a problem with green water however, once it did become cloudy (white) I began treating with algaecide and changing filter every 3 hrs. It cleared it right up. I love the Krystal Clear System.

We purchased the Intex 633T pump. We want to know if this pump can be ran with saltwater pool?

Unless the manual specifically says otherwise there should be no problem. The salt level in salt water pools is very minimal, so it's really no different than using mineral additives. Do pay attention to salt system though as far as using other mineral additives such as copper or silver algaecides as they can damage the salt system.

I thought this was a salt filter. Can I just buy the pump and connect it-- salt has already been put in the pool

Hope you enjoy saltwater sports. You can drain some of the water to weaken the salt content. The filter will work just fine but you now need to use chlorine like the rest of us.

Low water flow

Low water flow is generally and indication that the filter is dirty / clogged. Remove the filter cartridge and see if the light goes out. Replace the filter if required.
