Cloudy water after running system for 15 hours

I just installed the Intex Salt Water System (8110) and have run it for 15 hours. The pool water is still cloudy, can't even see the bottom. Do I just keep running the filtration system to clear this up?

Water not clear


cloudy water is mainly due to poor pool maintainence.
Your purchase of the salt water system only helped you with not needing to pour chlorine in or float tablets.
You will still need to use chemecals.
I use a good stabilizer to hold the chlorine level longer
I use a non foaming algecide once a week
I also use a water clarifying product once a week

Now on to the clouds :-)

cloudy water is because of not enough sanitizer mixwd with a crappy pump from intex

I do not know the size of your pool so I will just use mine to show you #'s

I have a 7000gl pool with a 2500gl ph pump
A pool needs to be turned over at LEAST 3 times a day so for me it takes at least 8 hours of filtering alone this does not include making chlorine.
Bottom line is you should run your system 24/7 between generating and straight filtering

The only cure for less filtering is to get a sand filter with at least a 1 horse power pump to pump 4000gl and uphaving a sand filter helps trap more small particles than the cartridge filter.

I noticed the difference the first night I had my sand filter. It ran for 6 hours before me turning my pool light on and to my surprise I did not see as many particles passing my light as with the cartridge filter and the second night nothing Crystal clear.

Bottom line is intex pumps and so on are not big enough for the pool it comes with.

The salt system alone with a sand filter is great

Do I have to drain my 24 ft round above ground pool to install an intex salt-chlorine generating system? I have just opened he pool and the ph and chlorine levels are where they should be.


no need to drain go to the intex web site and look up your pool size for the starting amount of salt you need.
After ading it run your filter for at least 24 hours before trying to generate use this web site and click on the english version for pump 8110 once it downloads go to page 13 14 15
to find the salt amount you need

How do you set the panel on a salt water intex pump mdl no.8110 and how much salt do use


to set the system, hold the down button until it beeps, then hold the up button until it beeps. Now the system is ready to set. Push the up button to the desired number of hours you want it to run. Now, hold the down button until it beeps, then the up button until it beeps. It should be locked and ready to start working.

Without knowing how large your pool is, I can't give you an exact amount of salt to use. If you know how many gallons your pool holds the formula is Gallons x 0.025 = pounds of salt to start up. When you need to add salt, its gallons x 0.0067 = pounds of salt to add when needed.

It is possible that you do not have enough
even after disolving the salt by siring it up you need to run the filter for at least 24 hours to really disolve and mix your salt

even though you cant see it it is still not equally distributed through the water

once you have run the system for 24 hours check your salt content
It should be as close to 3000ppm as possible

a test kit will cost about 11 dollars for ten tests

Code 93 saltwater system


Hi, Code 93 is telling you that the system is done running, did you mean to say it said 92? That code would be for too much salt. If indeed it is a Code 92 you are getting, give Intex a call, or email. I have found their website to be very helpful, they have a F&Q's area. Good luck!
