The cl100 should do the job. The first thing I would do is check the chemicals. Make sure you have enough stabilizer (cyanuric acid).If it's low your chlorine will not last long at all. Check the ph and alkalinity also. Make sure you are running the pump long enough. the cl100 only adds chlorine when it's running.

Wrinkles in your pool liner wall is a slight problem and can be a place for algae to grow, BUT can be treated and cleaned.. Algae will appear if your not providing the correct amount chlorine, regardless of wrinkles or not.. Let me tell you how I take care of my 14,500 gallon 18' X 33' X 48" pool using only the 8110 Intex model and hope you can apply some of my techniques to your pool and system...
In the 2 years I've own my system, I have not added any chlorine, even for those times my system failed and water turned green.. Yes.. I could have bought SHOCK and CHLORINE and added to my pool to kill the algae, but chose to vacuum, brush and set my chlorinator to max and did it without buying any of these expensive chemicals.. It took over 3 days to finally see results after running my system at at 12 to 14 hrs pump and 10 to 12 hrs chlorination.. After my pool cleared and chlorine level was at optimal, I lowered my chlorination to around 6 to 8 hrs.. Right now that the temperature is around 95 degrees, I run the pump for 12 hrs and chlorinate for 10.. My chlorine level is slight low and today I plan to raise my chlorination to 11 hours.. My pool water right now is crystal clear and clean. I vacuum my pool daily and check the electrolytic cell weekly for optimal results..
Now...you have a huge above ground pool, almost 19,000 gallons!!! To start.. you should have added almost 500 lbs of salt!!! and ran the pump only for over 24 hrs to properly dissolve the salt..
Next, you should test the water salt concentration level and should have been between 2000 and 3000 ppm. After the proper level and because your pool is so big, run your pump at 12 hrs or longer and possible 10 to 12 hrs chlorination...
You said the manual vacuum sucks up the liner??? They sell a nifty device that hooks up at the end of the hose and attaches at the skimmer inlet that has a relief spring activated door that prevents sucking up the liner and also, you may to look for a different vacuum head???
Bottom line... NO, the only way to clean the algae is NOT with vacuum and brush only..It could be done with SHOCK and CHLORINE.. I chose not to add shock and chlorine to mine.. But you will need to vacuum the dead algae and clean you filter several times..One more thing... I hope your chlorinator is big enough for your size pool.. The max gallons the manual shows is for a 14500 gallons, like mine... Good luck and hope this info helps...

My salt water pump keeps saying low salt. I have had the water checked and there is plenty of salt. I have cleaned the cell and it still says low salt. The pump is on;y 1 year old. I dont know what else to...


I suggest you clean the cell according to manual and try it then. If it keeps producing chlorine then keep swimming. If the pump is flowing water fully (if not clean baskets and filter) and it can't keep the chlorine above 2 ppm and you have 30 to 50 ppm stabilizer in the water then there is a major problem in the chlorinator. I don't trust the salt indicator on some chlorinators but that is less important than if it chlorinates. You can but salt test strips. I hope this helps.

Hello I have a 15x48 intex above ground Easy Set pool and saltwater system. All was working well for about a week and a half. I couldn't get my ph and TA levels right so I brought a sample to my local...


As a alternative to the cell, you could add chlorine, temporarily ... so the kids could swim right away.

If the manufacturer recommends vinegar, that is what you should use. Some people say muratic acid is effective in cleaning the device. Try cleaning another night.

Evidently, your water was on the acid side ... evidenced by the report from your pool professional.

In establishing good water balance, first it is important to remove all metals ... Second, get alkalinity set (anywhere between 80 and 120 with 100 being the goal). Next, pH should be set. 7.2 to 7.8 is a pretty wide range. 7.4 is the goal. Chlorine should now be introduced and 4 ppm is a good number but you can go higher, Some US States allow as high as 10 in commercial spa and hot tub situations. In your case, the chlorine you are making (or not making in the present situation) is not protected by Cyanuric Acid (sun screen for chlorine). Also called Stabilizer, any number between 50 and 100 is ok. 80 is the goal. With no Cyanuric Acid "protection", your chlorine will be gobbled up almost as quickly as you make it. Note, grandular type chlorine normally comes with Cyanuric Acid as an ingredient. Numbers above 100 should be avoided. Since the acid is persistent, the only way to get the excess out of the pool is to remove some water, which will also remove calcium and salt. Just be aware ...

Do you know what the salt rquirement is? The content of your pool? One particular manufacturer I am famliar with wants 2800 to 3400 PPM with 3200 being the goal. At that level, this particular manufacturers (not yours) device operates most effectively. I say this to stress you should be aware of the Intex standard and where your salt level is. You can measure this with a special kit from Taylor or you may have your pool professional check it for you.

Enjoy your pool - I hope this information is helpful. Thank you for your question @ FixYa.com

Hi, I have let my intex above ground pool go green over winter and with summer approaching don't know if I need to add extra salt or something else to get the pool ready for swimming. It is a 14 foot,...


You need to get liquid chlorine and add about 2 liters and let your pool filter run for a couple of days and in the mean time clean your filter twice daily. If the pool at this stage is still a little green add more chlorine and broom the bottom to stir it up. After this as once your pool is back to almost normal, clean the the filter again and add clarifya. To keep your pool in good condion over summer buy 2 pool floaters, put 2 chlorine tablets in one and blue block pool sparkle in the other and each week add 1 liter of chlorine. Hope this helps you as i have the same pool and i do this and don't have any problems. You can also add salt to your pool if you like but dissolve it in water before you add it to the pool.

Open the plugs on the bottom front of the pump pot and on the pump housing itself. These two plugs will do the pump and just the pump. You should have simmilar plugs on the filter, heater, chlorinator and any other equiptment on the system.

No chlorine reading


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.
