Question about Intex Automatic Salt Water System for Above Ground Saltwater Pool
If you are still looking for some solutions, here they are.
Start by plugging both your out put and input in the pool
or simply close the plungers
If you are uncertain the flow sensor is ok then blast it out with the garden hose. Make sure it swings freely
now take out your cartridge and blast it too
now remove your hose from the inlet to the pump
even though you may be skimming and things go in the basket hair still gets through and cloggs up in front of the filter
this also will happen with out a skimmer
Put it all back together and now open the top bleeder on the cartridge cover
open outlet side hose first
when water starts comong out the bleeder open the inlet hose
now turn on pump for 30 seconds and then close the bleeder
This should do it
As for the cloudy it could be as simple as your filter not performing as it should or even maybe high salt with out an alarm
you need to have your salt as close to 3000ppm as possible below 2800ppm and you will not produce enough chlorine and above 3500ppm and you could get cloudy water
Intex pumps do not do a sufficient job
A pool needs turned over 304 times minimum in a cycle
since I do not know your pool or pump I will use generic #'s
If you have a 5000gl pool and a 1500gl ph pump you need to run it at least 10 hours or so to work for you.
use your #'s to calculate filtering for your situation
At this point I would get the filter working and shock the pool with 1 gl
of liquid chlorine to start you out
I would even use a non foaming algaecide every 5-7 days Just follow directions for your gallons of water
hope this helps
