My intex saltwater system does not fit on my summer escapes filter pump. My pool size is 16' x 42" and the pump sits on the ground. On end of the filter is high and the other is low (returm flow).

Unfortunately every thing you mentioned is not reaaly important.
Bottom line is that Intex has there own size hoses and prevents easy installation with other manufacturers.
You will need to make a trip to home depot and buy a basket full of fittings and keep trying till one works

After modifying our 20x 48 Summer Escapes pool to utilize our Intex Saltwater system - why is the saltwater pump showing low flow?


Index salt chlorinators need a certain flow rate. Check the flow rate on your pump to see if it is strong enough.

What is the recommended end-of-season maintenance for the chlorinating pump?


According to the Intex website, the following maintenance is required for this product:

The Intex Saltwater Pool Systems are designed to operate with a minimum amount of maintenance. It is recommended to always turn the pump on prior to turning on the Saltwater Pool System (see Owner's Manual) unless the chlorine generator is part of a combination pool and filter set, to ensure that air pockets are eliminated from the hoses, and that water is flowing through the unit. In addition, the electrolytic cell should be examined and cleaned if necessary. The frequency of cleaning will depend on the local water conditions, pool usage conditions, and length of time the Saltwater Pool System is operated each day. (See Owner's Manual.)

The Intex Saltwater Pool Systems contain several features that minimize maintenance requirements:

1.) An automatic self-cleaning cycle: The Saltwater Pool System automatically undergoes a self-cleaning cycle to maximize the operating length of the electrolytic cell.

2.) Safety diagnostics: the Saltwater Pool System will alert the operator to three conditions that could result in poor operation: Low water flow through the unit, Low Salt level in the pool water, High salt level in the pool water. If any of these conditions exist, the system will sound a buzzer, and flash a digital code on the control panel (Model 8110) or a Red LED will light up. (Model 6110).If the condition is not addressed, the system will automatically shut itself off to prevent damage to the unit.

Hi I have ab 18x52' intex above ground pool with klear saltwater system, but I have algae in the bottom of the pool, please tell what to do to clean it without emptying the pool, and can i use any...


Get ready for a full weekend of cleaning your pool :) This is the chemical free method...
1st... Start with a clean filter...So clean your filter...
2nd.. Vacuum your pool and get most of the algae up from the bottom and sides.. Go slow so you do not stir up the algae. Make sure you use the vacuum attachment with brushes..
3rd..Clean your filter...
4th...repeat step 2 again...
5th... Clean your filter...
6th... Brush your pool with a pool brush to loosen the remaining algae..
7th... Set your pump timer for 12 hrs and your chlorinator for 10 to 11 of those hrs... and run for 3 days...
8th.. Check your water and see if has cleared and the algae is almost completely gone.. If so, check your free chlorine level and adjust your cycle down if at the required level..
9th.. if your chlorine level is not at optimal, run at the 12 hr cycle for 3 more days and check..
10th.. After water is clear and free of algae, clean your filter and adjust your cycle down to control your free chlorine level...
Good luck and hope this method works for you.. It has for me for over 2 years with my Intex Salt Water system...
Please take the time to rate me and write a comment... really appreciate!!!

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!

Will the intex saltwater filtration system work with the summer escape?


We, like others, purchased an Intex 56633E 2500GPH Intex Pump for our Summer Escapes 18 X 52 Pool. While this is not exactly the pump you are talking about, the installation is the same. It comes with the filter, hoses, and cut-off valves. It was easy to install, with a few modifications.

For those who need assistance on getting this to work with the Summer Escapes pool, here is what we did:

1. We installed the plungers that came with the kit on the pump, before the hoses. This was done to allow us to close them, so that we can clean the filter, when needed. They install without any modifications.
2. We installed the GAME 4552 Skim Filter Pump Adaptor (Avail. On Amazon) on the bottom of the existing skimmer assy. (You can skip this, and use the existing pump, if you wish. Just remember to remove the impeller assy, as it will reduce flow.)
3. We then cut off one of the threaded ends from each supplied hoses, just below where the flat part of the hose is located..
4. Next, we put teflon tape around the bottom of the Game adapter, and also, on the existing wall output tube.
5. Using 2 clamps for each of the connections, installed cut off ends onto the game adapter, and the output tubes.
6. We re-installed the existing C filter into the skimmer, and the basket.
7. Now, the easy part. We cleared all of the air per the manufacturers instructions.
8. Turned on the pump, and, were delighted to see more water move in the pool than we have ever seen before.

Hi- I'm a new intex above ground metal frame pool owner. I bought the saltwater chlorinator to go with my pool. I constantly have a problem with the pool filter not getting enough water to flow through...


You've gotta keep that annoying filter pretty darn clean to please the saltwater pump. I have to scrub my filters daily for this reason. What pump do you have? Mine is rated for 4000gph but I see Intex even offers support for pumps with as little as 500gph.

Hayward pump hose and intex pool


Im thinking that hot glue would not harden completly in a direct sun situation not to mention the potential mess
What I did was go to my local hardware store and bought rubber o rings ( sorry dont remember what size) put them on the fitting slipped the hose over it and clamped on top of that area. Has been fine all summer

hope you figure it out
