you need to look at all intake pipes and seal ('O' ring) around pump skimmer box.

Use a bucket of water to tip over pipe work (while pumping) see if you can see where leak is.

Go to your pool shop and get some multipurpose pool lubricant used on o-rings and gaskets - put on all seals.

First thing to do with a new set up is remove the metal. The green is very likely copper in the water. Use a sequestering agent to remove the metal. Follow the directions on the bottle.

Second, establish the alkalinity at any number between 80 and 120 with 100 being the goal. Use Bicarb of Soda to increase or Muratic Acid to reduce.

When you have alkalinity of 100, try to get the pH at any number between 7.2 and 7.8 with 7.4 being the goal. Carb of soda to increase the pH and use Muratic acid to reduce. Move slow.

When the Alkalinity is at 100 and the pH is at 7.4 introduce Chlorine. The goal should be between 4 ppm and 10 ppm, since you are not an inspected pool. You should introduce Cyanuric Adic (AKA stabilizer) to a number between 50 and 80 ppm. Stabilizer will protect your chlorine, the chlorine you will be making from the salt in the water.

Next establish the salt level ata the point required by your system. I dont know what Intex requires in fact. I think it is a number between 2600 and 3400 - olease refer to your manufacturers instruction for this. Introduce the salt through a skimmer for best results. BTW, the water has to be hotter than 55 degrees F for your salt cell to make salt.

The Green could be algae - treat by super chlorinating your pool with liquid or powdered chlorine of your choice. I suggest at least 20 ppm.

Cloudiness is undisolved solids. Best way to clear this is by running the filter. The longer you run the filter, the cleaner will be the water. You can use a product called Super Blue which will aid in clearing the solids from the water. If you are impatient, you can use a flocking agent in the filter. I dont think you relly need it, however.

Tell me more about your pool is it rectangular at 12 X 24 (how deep) or is it 12 feet round 24 inches deep. I was trying to calculate the actual gallons. Provide the info and I will get the gallons though you claimit is 8500.

Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com ... please come again any time. Please remember to evaluate the response.

I am not an expert on your particular Intex model ...

I believe your pressure readings are with in normal parameters. Is your water clean?

Is it balanced? Your goals should be Alkalinity of 100 (no less than 80 and no more than 120, pH should be 7.4 (but no less than 7.0 and no more than 7.8) and your chlorine should be 5 ppm. I recommend a DPD test kit Cyanuric Acid should be about 50 but no less than 40 and no more than 80. Cyanuric Acid is also called stabilizer. Its function is to protect the chlorine you are making in your cell. Refer to your owners manual for how much salt you should have in your pool. 3200 ppm salt is a window to shoot for. You can get a test kit for salt. Salt, like calcium, is persistent in the water. The only way salt and calcium get out of the pool is through back washing, splash out and what you carry off with your swimming attire. Chlorine is affected by the sun and materials introduced into the water by the swimmers as well as what jumps, falls or hops into the pool. pH is not necessarily affected by the sun but the other factors do come into play. A properly balanced pool (alkalinity-wise) will not have pH "bounce". If your pH is bouncing, that is an indicator that your alkalinity is out of whack.

If your pool is 4 feet deep, you have about 8,640. Your goal should be for a 8 hour turn over rate (your pump should be pumping no fewer than 1,120 gallons per hour). BTW, studies show that if you run your pump 24/7 with a 8 hour turn over rate, it still takes up to 5 days for every drop of water in your pool to actually pass through the sand.

You could install a flow meter in your return line. It is simple to do - drill a hole in the return line and attach the meter. Rule of thumb - a 1.5 hp motor (probably bigger than yours) will move about 50 to 70 gallons per minute through a 1/5 or 2.0 pipe. A 2 HP motor will move between 60 and 80 gallons per minute through a 2 inch pipe (and filter, of course). Get a flow meter at your full service pool supplier. It will come with full particulars.

With a clean filter (note the pressure) you should back wash when the pressure increases by about 10 PSIG (Pounts Per Square Inch on the Gage) from the pressure when clean.

I hope this information helps you ...

My intex saltwater system pump is beeping ''91'' meaning ''low salt level''. Do I need to just add salt again?


Yes, and be sure to keep up with your pH as it will want to rise slowly over time when using a salt water chlorine generator.
