My pool is GREEN! What do I need to do?


You can try using shock or liquid chlorine and bring the chlorine level back to 3 ppm.. 1 small bag can treat up to 10,000 gallons.. After that, raise the cycle time on your chlorinator to maintain that level...
If you do not want to use those chemicals, raise your pump cycle time to 12 hrs and your chlorinator to 10 or 11 hrs and should see some results within a few days... The chemical method should yield faster results... Good luck...

Water keeps turning green


Check the salt concentration level.. Should be between 2000 and 3000 ppm.. Ideal 2800..
Check your chlorine level... should be between 2 to 3ppm.. Ideal 3ppm
You may need to increase the cycle time up..Big pools may need up to 10 to 12 pump and 8 to 10 hrs chlorination...

My salt water pump keeps saying low salt. I have had the water checked and there is plenty of salt. I have cleaned the cell and it still says low salt. The pump is on;y 1 year old. I dont know what else to...


I suggest you clean the cell according to manual and try it then. If it keeps producing chlorine then keep swimming. If the pump is flowing water fully (if not clean baskets and filter) and it can't keep the chlorine above 2 ppm and you have 30 to 50 ppm stabilizer in the water then there is a major problem in the chlorinator. I don't trust the salt indicator on some chlorinators but that is less important than if it chlorinates. You can but salt test strips. I hope this helps.

Hi, last month we bought an intex round pool (18' x 54") with sand pump and salt sanitizer. Within the last 2 days the water started turning green. It turns out my husband accidently set the pump...


You don't want to swim in water that has algae... 1st ...Make sure you have the correct amount of salt. See you manual for amount needed. Must set you pump timer first and sync your chlorinator between that time, if pump turns off before chlorinator cycle ends, you will get an "Low flow" alarm. Set you pump timer to run 12 hours and the chlorinator for 10 to 11 of those hours and should see results within 3 days or so. After that, If you live in an area that is hot, 10 hours pump and 8 to 9 chlorinator... Hope this helps...

My water was crystal clear when delivered. I added the salt, ran the filter pump for 24 hrs as instructed. Turned on my Intex saltwater pump and within an hour water is green. Cannot find anything on...


I am not impressed at all with these salt water chlorinators.Shock the water and keep the filter running next day add a powdered chlorine.filter still running. check the balance with test strip in about four hours.If chlorine level is good start vacuming the algee off the bottom of the pool. Now throw away the salt generator and stay with the chlorine packs every week to two weeks continue to monitor with test strips

I have a Pentair 320 automatic chlorine feeder. I have filled it with chlorine tabs, but I am still getting a zero reading for chlorine when I test my pool water. Can it be plugged?


It can be but probably isn't. A three inch tab is meant only to maintain your chlorine level. You must first bring the chlorine level up to specs, by adding either liquid or powdered chlorine, than add one or two tabs a week to hold it at that level.

I have a 18ft x 52 intex pool with salt water chlorinator.green


although you may or may not have enough chlorine in your pool you must also realize that a pool need turned over at least 3 times a day.
an example is if you have 7000gl of water and a 2000gph pump you need to filter at least 10 hours or so.
More important than chlorine is the actual circulation of the water you can have all the chlorine in the world but if you do not have the circulation the water will become cloudy or green this also happens when you have no swimmers for days at a time


the filtration time is over and above the chlorine generating time your 4 hours a night for generating chlorine sound like you are guessing sometimes it may be 4 and sometimes 2 or 6
it depends on # of swimmers a day sun and what was in the pool to start

It is important to have a test kit for ph and chlorine and keep chlorine at 1.0to 1.5 now set your ph
ph will rise and fall with your chlorine level one you have them set good at the first time then ph should stay safe enough and re level as chlorine is kept right

also remeber that the wrong ph causes more problems than wrong chlorine levels

Also make sure your salt is no more than 3000ppm and no higher like some people recommend and no lower than 2500 test kits are available for 10 dollars

all of this can be found on intex.com either in a video or pdf files for water capacity and approximate time for generating chlorine.


to be sure always use test kits

After going thru the Start up set up our Intex


After setting the time did you remember to re-lock the keypad by pressing and holding the "down arrow" for 5-seconds until you hear a long beep and then the "up arrow" for 5-seconds until you hear a long beep? Several minutes later the Green LED should come on indicating the cycle has started.
