Question about Intex Automatic Salt Water System for Above Ground Saltwater Pool

1 Answer

We purchased the 24' by 52" intex pool with saltwater filtration system. We use well water that is taken out of the ground by a windmill. We depend on the wind for the water, so it has taken a month to fill the pool. The water is green and there is debris at the bottom of the pool. Is it OK to put the salt in and turn the pump on, now that it is full? Should we give it a couple of days or should we go ahead and shock it? Thanks, Patricia Tieken rtiekenww@hotmail.com

I have an above ground pool 18' round 52" deep. I purchased the intex saltwater system. I have had it run everyday for 8hrs a day and the ph is high and reads no chlorine. What to do?


Salt generating systems cuase pH to rise over time so you generator appears to have been working. What is the salt level in the water? Perhaps your pool is low hence no more chlorine generation.

If my pool has an algae problem now . can i convert to a saltwater filtration system w/o draining the pool ?


You need to rid the pool from algee. When you say saltwater filtration do you mean a chlorene generator? It generates chlorene from the sodium chloride that you maintain in pool. This still means you need chlorene to kill the algee. Shock the pool with chlorene shock. After allowing the pump filter to mix, let stand ovenight. Vacuum green slime from bottom to waste. Your pool supplier can help you . Kill the algee then start up chlorene generator.

We recently purchased the intex saltwater system for our above ground pool. We read all the instructions and followed them however our water is still cloudy and a light shade of green. what can we do


You need a sequestering agent to remove the metal from your water ... let the chlorine go to nothing ... put in some 'metal out' or similar according to the instructions on the container ... then start again with the chlorine.

Chlorine and copper and/or iron = green water

Hose hook ups


If you look at the chlorinator you'll see an arrow pointing in the direction of the flow. Basically the water coming out of the pool should be going through the filter tower first and then through the chlorinator and ultimately back into the pool.
