IF YOUR CHLORINATOR IS DIRTY IT WILL GIVE YOU THIS READING. USE HOUSEHOLD VINEGAR TO CLEAN THE CHLORINATOR PLUG 1 END AND FILL ABOVE THE PLATES AND THE COPPER IONIZATION ELEMENT. LET SOAK I HOUR AND BACKFLUSH WITH POOL WATER . HOOK IT BACK IN THE SYSTEM AND THAT SHOULD FIX THE PROBLEM. IF NOT CHECK THE POOLS SALT CONTENT. IT SHOULD BE .003 PPM. IF NOT ADD SALT ACCORDING TO THE MANUAL ON YOUR SIZE POOL.

I have an Intex Ultra frame 18x48 with the salt water system, I haven't added salt in a while and keep getting a high salt alert and I add water frequently because of the evaporation (which is well water)....


When water evaporates, it leaves the salt behind. Depending on your well water, it may also already contain salt - adding yet more salt to your pool each time you top up...
Perhaps try emptying your pool (all or partially) & starting again - don't think the old trick of sticking a potato into an over-salted soup to absorb the excess (& removing it before serving, of course) will work on a pool!

We have a 18x48 ultra frame intex pool. It at first gave us a lot of problems saying low salt so we cleaned the cell with vinegar and it began working no probs for the past 3 weeks. On the weekend I went...


I can't explain all of this but to get the rid of the green and reduce the salt level you need to drain half the water and refill. At this you need to shock it so the chlorine is up to about 10 ppm. You need some way of testing to tell this. If your chlorinator is ok then when you start the pump and chlorinator it should continue cleaning it out. The dead algae will be filtered out with the filter. If the flow slows down you will need to clean the filter with a water sprayer on a hose. I hope this helps.

My water is cloudy and says salt level low.....it seems salty enough as I can feel and taste it. Is there chemicals I am supposed to be adding or does this system keep it clean all alone just by adding...


While your problems are likely greater than just the salt content in the water I can tell you that if you feel, or more importantly can taste the salt in the water your salt level is WAY TO HIGH, not low. Have the salt level confirmed with an independent test either at a pool store or using a salt tester.

I have an Intex Ultra Frame 24'x52" pool. We are installing the saltwater filtration system today. How much salt will be need to use and are there any other chemicals we should use for the initial setup?


I HAVE THE SAME POOL FOR YOUR FIRST START UP ADD 310 OF POOL SALT. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A INTEX SALTWATER CHLORINATOR I WOULD SUGGEST GETTING ONE. IT WILL GIVE YOU READINGS ON LOW SALT, HIGH SALT, AND ALSO HAS A BOOST FOR COPPER IONIZATION, WHICH KILLS ALGEA AND BACTERIA. MIX YOUR SALT AROUND THE POOL AND LET THE PUMP CIRCULATE IT. GET A TEST KIT TO CHECK YOUR SALT LEVEL. IT SHOULD BE AT .OO3 OR 3 PPM. TO DO A GOOD JOB OF KEEPING YOUR WATER CIRCULATED YOU MAY NEED TO UPGRADE YOUR PUMP FROM THE 2500 GPM TO THE 4000 GPM PUMP. THE INITIAL SALT YOU ADD SHOULD GET YOU IN THE BALL PARK. AFTER CIRCULATING AND SWIMMING A FEW TIMES CHECK THE LEVEL AND IF TO HIGH LET OUT WATER AND ADD FRESH, IF TO LOW ADD MORE SALT. ONCE SET YOU SHOULD BE GOOD TO GO AND ENJOY FOR THE SEASON. HOWEVER I RECCOMEND CHECKING YOUR POOL LEVELS WEEKLY. HOPE THIS HELPS.

My intex saltwater system green light then low salt light


You need to add salt to the water. How much depends on what size pool you have. Your owner's manual will tell you exactly how much to add when the low salt light comes on. On my Intex I would need to add 35 lbs.

Yes, you can add chlorine. Liquid chlorine will raise the ph a bit. Don't know what kind of shock you are adding, but wait a day, recheck ph level, than adjust.
