You need to add salt to the water. How much depends on what size pool you have. Your owner's manual will tell you exactly how much to add when the low salt light comes on. On my Intex I would need to add 35 lbs.

    Tell me the capacity in gallons of the pool and I can tell you how much salt to add.

SOURCE: My intex saltwater system pump is beeping

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.

SOURCE: it says low flow, how can i fix it

Low flow means there is insufficient water traveling through the cell to make CL. Is your cell clean and clear? Is your filter clean and clear? Clean your cell according to the manufacturers instruction and back wash your filter.

Hello,
First of all green water can arrise from a lot of different situation.
Low chlorine is one of them coupled with the crappy filter that comes with the intex pools it does not filter enough.

Start with getting your salt level to 3000ppm
any lower than 2700 and you will not generate enough chlorine and any higher than 3500 and you could go cloudy or trigger high salt alarms

you need to get the salt test kit that reads in #'s not color the color ones has to much of a variance
once your salt is at 3000 clean your cell then filter filter filter

I run my filter 24/7 if it is not generating chlorine I am filtering.

Clean your cartridge every few days
I have had the same 2 cartridges for this being my 4th season and have never been green or replaced the filters.
Also I reccomend a non foaming algecide

Just follow directions on bottle

Help with low flow on intext krystal clear saltwater system.


You can check the inlet line where it comes from the pool... Their is a little sreening/filtering system in the the parts that screw together and connect the valve to the pool... When I unscrewed mine, it was jammed with bugs, leaves, green algea... That did the trick for me... I am sure you already changed/cleaned the filter in the filter/pump that comes before the Salt water system... That will cause low flow as well...

I have a 15x 42" intex metal frame pool an i also


Most likely you are not. The manual is very conservative!!! I have a 14000 gallon pool and I run my intex salt system during the summer at 10 to 12 hrs pump and 8 to 10 hrs chlorination in between those 12 hrs and my pool stays very clear. But..... If you don't clean the unit and let it alarm for low flow, low salt or not run the unit log enough, you WILL HAVE GREEN WATER!!!
Hope this helps, If it does, please rate the tip!

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
