My pool is nasty green...waiting for intex saltwater unit to arrive. Do I need to drain pool before and put clean water in before I begin running this new pump?


I would start with a fresh clean pool if it's that nasty green!!! Drain and scrub all algae..
Did you already buy your salt?? Remember.. you will need to add your salt and run the pump without the chlorinator for 24 hrs to properly dissolve the salt.. If your not sure how much salt to buy, post again how many gallons your pool is and how much salt will you need and you should get an answer from one of us... Good luck....

My water is cloudy and says low salt. I added 120 lbs and it still beeps low salt. I have a CS8111 saltwater system & filter combo. It is on an above ground pool 24' X 52".


Check the electrolytic cell!!! You will get a low salt alarm if cell has calcium or sodium build up.. If it does, soak, flush and clean with vinegar.. Also, make sure you run the pump only, no chlorinator for 24 hrs to properly disolve the salt you just put in....

My generator keeps flashing low salt so I have added salt to the point the water is just about as salty as the ocean, and it is still showing low salt. What is the problem?


Have your water tested professionally at your pool supply place. You should have between 2400 and 4000 ppm ... ideal is 3400 salt. It could be that you have too much ... have it checked before you do anything else. If you have too much ... you will have to dump some water and put in fresh ...

I just bought a saltwater system for my 12x39 pool a month ago did start up like book said and pool was fine for a month then the low salt light came on so i put 15 lbs of salt in per instructions kids...


you really should get test strips for salt. Get the kind that reads #'s
Get your pool to as close to 3000ppm as you can. any lower than 27000 and you do not generate enough chlorine any higher than 3600 will taste bad and could trigger high salt alarm 3000 is best

run filter only for a few hours before running generator the salt needs enough time to fully distribute through the pool

No chlorine being produced


although you are close to the amount of salt that is recommended all pools are just different enough that the salt table is just a starting point if you do not have enough salt it is still possible to not trigger the alarm but not produce enough chlorine.
Start by getting a salt test strip kit and get your pool to 3000ppm this may take a day or so since you really need to filter and circulate the pool for 24 hours in between adding salt
Once you get the salt right then move on to generating

also do not worry about total chlorine you just need to concentrate on free chlorine this is the amount available in the pool to do it's job and dont forget to ad a stabilizer to help hold the chlorine level on hot sunny days
