I'm not sure exactly what buttons you're pushing but you push the down button until it beeps, then the up button until it beeps. Then you set it. To lock it you push the down button until it beeps, then the up button until it beeps. Hope that helps and I apologize if those are the steps you're already taking.

I do not have my user manual for my intex saltwater system, I bought it and used it last summer. I forget how to set my system and it is beeping like mad right now. I just want to run the filter system to...


Alright I imagine you have it hooked up already if its beeping at you. A couple of things to ensure first. One is a PCV pipe that has a electrical connection going to a T at the top. On that section of PVC pipe there should be an arrow. Ensure that arrow is pointing in the same direction as the stationary PVC pipe that contains the titanium plates. Now Ensure that you r filter pump is Supplying water to your salt water system. So it should be pool to filter pump to salt water system back into the pool. Now in order to program your salt water system you need to lift the screen protector. Press the left (down arrow) until you hear a short beep then press the right button (up arrow) until you hear another short beep. You just unlocked the keys, now you need to set the hours of operation by pressing the up arrow. For 2000gal pool you want to set for 2 hours if it is 68 to 97 degrees out. anything higher run it for 3 hours. For a 4000gal pool you want to run it for 5 hours if its 68-82 degrees. 6 hours from 84-97 degrees and 7 hours if its hotter than that. Once you have the hours set the machine will automatically start (ENSURE THEFILTER PUMP IS ON). You can relock the keypad by press and holding the down arrow button until it beeps then the up arrow button. A green chlorine light should light up within the next 5 minutes, which indicates the saltwater system started the chlorine production.

My intex saltwater pump reads 88 and when I hit the arrows it continuously beeps without ever resetting to 0. I unplugged overnight and still doesn't work.


This thing is very sensitive. If you dont get the timing just right or in the right order that often happens.When it happens turn it off for a few seconds then try again. The book says hold the down button down for 5 seconds until you hear one beep, then up button for 5 seconds till you hear another beep. I find that 5 seconds sometimes isnt long enough and sometimes to long. Like I said, it is quite touchy. After two years still have it happen sometimes. P.S. Make sure the pump is running and water is flowing when you try it.

Code 88


Plug the pump in. You will see code 88 which is normal. Press and hold the down button for 2 seconds until you hear a short beep.Then press and hold the up button for anohter 2 seconds until you hear a short beep and the LED flashes 00. Using the up button set the time to run based on the size of the pool which you did not list. Tell me the size and I will tell you how many hours to set on the timer.

Lost manual


I am assuming you have poured in the correct amount of salt. If not post the size of the pool and I can list the correct amount. Now, you will need to set the hours of operation according to the size of the pool which I need to know in order to help more. I will go through the procedure of startup. When you turn the pump on after dissolving the salt in the pool, it will show a code 88 which is normal. Press and hold the down button for 2 seconds until you hear a short beep. The LED will flash 00. Your keypad is now unlocked. Push the up button to set the number of daily hours of operation according to the size of your pool. Up to add hours, down to remove an hour. If you do not have an owner's manual tell me the size and where you live and I can tell you how much salt to add and hours each day to run.

I can't get the (Intex) salt generator to time set. It just stays on 88.


Did you attempt to unlock the keypad before trying to set the time? In case you didn't, these would be the proper steps:

Unlock the keypad by pressing and holding the "down arrow" for 5-seconds until you hear a long beep and then the "up arrow" for 5-seconds until you hear a long beep.

Set the number of hours you want it to run by adjusting the time display using the "up arrow" or "down arrow" until you have the correct number of hours.

After setting the time re-lock the keypad by pressing and holding the "down arrow" for 5-seconds until you hear a long beep and then the "up arrow" for 5-seconds until you hear a long beep. Several minutes later the Green LED should come on indicating the cycle has started.

88 flashes on display screen


Hold the down arrow till it beeps then hold the up arrow till it beeps When you see double zero then set the # of hours you want it to run with the up and down arrows.
Then you will need to lock it in use the down arrow again and wait for a longer beep then the up again till a long beep.
You are set remeber that it will take about 5 minutes for the chlorine light to come on
you can also go to intex.comm and watch the video or read the manual
