Hold the down button until it beeps, then hold the up button until it beeps. Now its ready to be set. push the up button to the desired amt of time you want the system to run. Once you have the time set, hold the down button until it beeps then the up button until it beeps. Now its locked and ready to go!

SOURCE: salt generator

My manual doesn't give a table for a 1500 gallon pool. The smallest it shows is the 15x33 at 2587 gallons at which you'd at 65 pounds of salt. If you could possibly tell me how big your pool is I could look that up for you. If you don't have an intex pool, the formula is Gallons x 0.025 so about 37.5 pounds for your pool. then you'd add 10.05 pounds when the Low Salt light comes on.

To start it up, hold the down arrow until it beeps, hold the up arrow until it beeps. Now you're ready to set it (the 15x33 pool you'll run 1-2 hours a day) When you have the time set, hold the down arrow until it beeps and then the up arrow until it beeps. Now it should be set!

Have your stablizer checked at your local pool store. It should be between 50-80 ppm if it runs higher than that have them cut the water by half with fresh and test again. Too much stablizer will keep the chloriene from working or reading right.

I checked the Intex web site and here is what they said:

There are several things you may need to check and do:

- Test the salt level first with Test Kit, and add salt as needed.
- Remove the electrolytic cell for inspection and clean it if necessary.
- If code 91 still appears despite the above steps, there might be a possible electrolytic cell

NOTE: Always turn the power off and disconnect power cord before cleaning and servicing.

I hope this helps.

Salt levels in a pool for a generator to operate efficiently...
2700 ppm Minimum to 3400 ppm Maximum, 3200 being Ideal.

So...
In pool water with NO Salt reading at all - 0, then you will add 2.67 lbs. of "Pool Salt" (which is almost Food Grade Quality! - NOT Softener Salt!) per 100 gallons of capacity.

### I Have a Easy Set Pool 15X36, And a Salt Water Generator How much Salt do I add for the first Time?

The Compupool CPSC/CPA Series is recommended to run at a salt concentration of 3500 ppm. If you are not installing a Compupool unit, check your manufacturer's instructions for their recommended level of concentration . Use a salt that is at least 99.8% pure NaCl. The preferred salt is an evaporated, granulated, food quality, NON-iodized salt. Avoid using salt with anti-caking agents like sodium ferrocyanide, also known as yellow YPS (prussiate of soda. These cause some discoloration of fittings and pool surface finishes. DO NOT use calcium chloride.

Using a salt water test strip, measure the current salt level of your pool. For the Compupool generators, ideal is 3500 ppm. If the level is low, determine the number of gallons in your pool and add salt according to the Salt Table. For example, if your pool has 15,000 gals of water and your current salt level is 2500, you need to add 125 lbs of salt.

### I have forgotten how to set my salt water system to initially chlorinate the water after i added the salt. It keeps beeping and the code says no salt is detected.

Could be a couple of things. Have you put the right amount of salt in according to the tables (I find I always have to add a bit more then the tables say). Have you let the salt mix completly by stirring up any salt laying on the bottom of the pool and by running the pump for at least 24 hours before turning on the salt generator. Depending on how large the pool is you may need more than 24 hours before turning on the salt generator. If still doesnt work than you can try adding more salt a little bit at a time over a couple of days. Also check to see if the electrolytic plates need cleaning. Unscrew the large grey connector to the left of where the wire goes into the sensor and look inside the unit on the left)

### KEEP GETTING A CODE 91 LOW SALT?

Hello,
As mentioned in many of my post's, you can not just go by the reccomended amount of salt in the owners manual.
You must get salt test strips that read in #'s not colors and get your salt as close to 3000ppm as possible lower than 2800 and you will not generate enough chlorine or trigger low salt alarms
any higher than 3500ppm and you could get cloudy, or trigger high salt alarm
the water will also taste too salty when adding salt dont forget to stir up the water and filter only for at least 12 hours before trying to generate salt

Longer if you ad a lot of salt like 75 lbs or so

### Code 91

If you have hard water in your location you may want to try cleaning the electrolytic plate. I had the same issue where no matter how much salt was added I had code 91. I shut the water down going through the filter / generator. Pulled the outlet hose off and put on a cap. Pulled copper cell out and filled chamber with vinegar. Put cell back in and let set for 1 hour. Fluhed it out and hooked everything back up. Nop more salt problems. The process is in the book.

### Salt light flashing added salt light went to orange no longer flashing but no chlorine lights will light has been 29 hours

All salt generators need at least 4-5000 parts per million for up to 30 days for the generators to re-generate salt. it takes chlorine to combined with the generator and salt to regenerate salt. Salt generators do not make salt from water that is not chlorinated first.
Try This and you will re gererate chlorine.

### Low salt indicator

high concentration? Salt is salt except for the fact in aq pool you want 98% pure and it must not be iodized salt
Also before generating salt with the timer you must have the right amount of salt
the #'s in the manual are just guidelines
get a salt test kit and get your pool to 3000ppm you need to filter only 24 hours or so getting to the 3000ppm wheather you ad salt or need to drain water and ad fresh none the less get it to 3000ppm
Now worry about your chlorine level if it is to high leave alone until it comes down if too low then run the generator for a few hours if it does not show on the scale at all try 4-6 hours
you will get a knack for the amount of time you need for your chlorine situation

if once all of this is set right and you still get high reading on salt unit take it apart as directed and spray it out with the garden hose
it is really simple only 4 screws
