Hold the down button until it beeps, then the up button until it beeps. Now push the up button to the desired number of hours you want the system to run. When set, hold the down button until it beeps then the up button until it beeps. Now the system is locked and ready to run.

Salt is sodium chloride, you can only measure salt levels now as your CL (cloride) is bound to a NA (sodium). Table salt =NACL, Your Intex system will tell you if your salt level is too high or too low but your old test equipment for free chlorine will continue to tell you no chlorine as it can't react with the chloride any longer as it is bound to the salt. That is why they tell you you never have to add more because the salt stabilizes it. Your chlorine is there it's bound to the salt. Use the pool it's fine and it makes your water feel really soft! Just keep the salt level right and your fine> It's confusing as they call the unit a chlorine generator! I had the same issue, called Intex and they told me the above.

SOURCE: NO CHLORINE

i just went through this
Are you using the instructions in the manual for locking the system after setting the number of hours?
If you are, they are not right
unlock the system, set your hours then press and hold the down arrow until it beeps and then press and hold the up arrow until it beeps, the system is now locked and in about 10 minutes the chlorine light will come on. Our pool went green and now that we have it running right the colour is changing before our eyes. Changed the filter and washed it out several times.

SOURCE: My chlorine generator will not program. It just

Since you are a little vague as to how you are using the arrows I will tell you like it is in the book

Push and hold the down arrow till it beeps
Now push and hold up arrow till it beeps
Now set your hours of operation desired with quick pushes of the up arrow
Now repeat the first 2 lines
This is manually locking the unit

If you prefer you can skip locking it yourself
Just remeber either way will take at least 2-10 minutes for the generator light to come on
Also here is a link to manuals and videos

In a 52" x 22' Ultraside Intex pool with a saltwater ionizer and a sand pump can I use pool shock to kill algae without damageing the saltwater ionizer system and the sand pump?


There seem to be different versions of algae killer - look for one that specifies that it's safe with saltwater systems (sorry, not familiar specifically with Pool Shock)

If you can remove your generator try and bench test it. Fill with pool water and do a chlorine test. Run the generator for a few minutes, unit should produce bubbles when the cells are turned on. Run another chlorine test and make sure it is higher than original test. You should also test your combined chlorines to make sure you don't have excess chloramines in the water. Also check for any buildup on the generator plates which should be acid washed, and verify salt concentration.

My intex saltwater system pool is cloudy


The chlorine level maybe too low and it is allowing algae to start growing.
Check the Ph level, it should be around 7.
Check the chlorine level in the pools water, use your chlorine test kit.
Check the salt levels, make sure it is at the correct concentration, too low a salt level and the Intex will not be able to generate enough chlorine.

We have an Intex above ground pool that takes salt and converts to chlorine. We filled it about a month ago and all was fine for a few weeks, then in the past week the water began turning green. We have...


Intex chlorine generators are very low output generators that fail very often. There is a reason they are so cheap. They do not work well. When using a chlorine generator, it is important to test manually for salts and free available chlorine on a daily basis. Just adding salt because you have a generator will not make your pool manage itself. In order to get the most basic chemistry under control, you need to test for alkalinity, calcium, pH, and free available chlorine.

If you do not have the ability to test these things, spend $10 on a 7 in one test strip that will give you this information.

Note: Chlorine generators have more negative aspects to them than positive. There is not a cost savings as advertised with these units. It actually costs more money, and takes more time to care for. The salt is very corrosive to the pump and filter system as well as the pool itself. The long-time cost would be cheaper to run a chlorine or bromine pool.

I have an above ground pool 18' round 52" deep. I purchased the intex saltwater system. I have had it run everyday for 8hrs a day and the ph is high and reads no chlorine. What to do?


Salt generating systems cuase pH to rise over time so you generator appears to have been working. What is the salt level in the water? Perhaps your pool is low hence no more chlorine generation.

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
