93 is sleep mode
after setting the # of hours you want the pump to run and it runs those hours it then goes to sleep mode

If you do nothing the unit will come on again in 24 hours and then run the same amount of hours as previously set

If you want to change the hours then un plug and re plug in

Every day could be different some days you may need 4 hours or so and others upwards of 12

Im getting a blinking 93 and my water wont clear up.


93 is stand by mode indication of the cycle completed.. You may need to increase the cycle time.. 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!

What is a code 93?


Code 93 = Good News for You! :-D It is your Saltwater Chlorinator's way of letting you know that it is working properly and your pool's water has a level of salt that is optimal/good.

Code 93 just lets you know it is not actively converting salt to chlorine...it is in 'standby mode.' When you first programmed the number of hours you wanted it to run (by pressing the left (down)arrow until you heard the beep, then pressing the right (up) arrow until you heard the beep - then pressing up until you reached the desired number of hours you wanted the unit to operate (minimum 1 hour, maximum 12 hours)) the unit began converting salt to chlorine immediately.
This is good news for you. Once the number of hours of operation are up, your unit will give you a code when you press either button. If your salt level is too low, you will receive code 91 indicating this, if your salt level is too high, you will receive code 92 indicating this, if the water flow is too low, you will receive code 90 indicating this (this gives you the opportunity to correct this before the next cycle begins. If there is no error with your pool's water, your unit will go into standby and wait until it is time to run the numbers of hours you programmed it for (it will begin it's cycle at the same time each day unless reprogrammed by you). When this happens, you will find code 93.

So, just to recap:
Code 93 = Good
Code 92= Salt level too HIGH (Empty approx. 20% of pools water & refill with fresh water.)
Code 91 = Salt level too LOW (Add salt.)
Code 90 = Low Water Flow (Check your filter. If it is working properly, you may find that it is too small for your pool. The filter that came with my pool was FAR TOO SMALL - I spent more time cleaning the pool than swimming in it. My 18' x 4' pool came with a 1500 filter. Now, I have a 4000 Sand Filter. This + the Saltwater Chlorinator = practically no maintenance. Together, these were approximately a $500 investment. WELL WORTH IT!!!)
Code 88 = Startup mode. (Press down arrow until you hear the beep. Press up arrow until you hear the beep. Press up arrow until you have the unit set to operate the number of hours you desire.)
As an extra FYI: The unit works with the sun. This means the unit turns the salt from your pool into natural chlorine which is then sent back into your pool. The sun turns this natural chlorine into salt. Your filter sends this salt into your saltwater chlorinator where it is again converted into natural chlorine & returned to your pool where then sun...I think you get it. ;-) It's a continuous process. ~This being the case, when you program your saltwater chlorinator, it is best to set it up to help it work with the sun rather than setting it up to compete with the sun. You do this by programming it to run at night. This way, your unit isn't working hard to generate chlorine at the same time the sun is diligently converting the chlorine to salt. I've read several articles where people argue that you should run your saltwater system at night & your filter during the day. I don't understand this concept. My filter runs 24/7 & my saltwater chlorinator runs 12 hours - from 8pm to 8am. Since I set my pool up to operate this way, I have not had to clean it at all other than backwashing the filter every other month just for principle. My water is crystal clear.
One further note of interest: My pool holds approximately 6000 gallons of water. For this, Intex recommends 135 pounds of salt. Because of some advice I'd read posted by other users, I started with only one 40lb bag. This was all my pool needed. Approximately once/year, I add one more 40lb bag.
RJBALLZER777, because you are receiving code 93, I realize you have set your pool up correctly and, therefore, are possibly thinking, "Why is she telling me all of these things I don't need to know?" I apologize if that is what you are thinking. I am really posting for those who have not gotten it just right the first time (or who are doing their research before buying as I did) so that they may get several questions answered at once. Hope you don't mind that I used your question as a means to post. (That's why I answered your question right off the bat.) Hope this post helps some.

I lost my manual, What do the codes mean on the salt water chlorenator in particular the code "93"?


88 ia str8 filtering
90 is low flow
91 is low salt
92 is high salt
93 is sleep mode

after running the amount of hours you set for chlorine generation it will shut down and display 93
The system wil then turn back on 24 hours later for the same amount of time

this is ok but every day is different you may need 5 hours and sometimes 12 or any where in between

to reset just unplug and plug back in

To further help you look up some of my posts on green water and low salt I am positive you will find them very helpful

Code 93 saltwater system


Hi, Code 93 is telling you that the system is done running, did you mean to say it said 92? That code would be for too much salt. If indeed it is a Code 92 you are getting, give Intex a call, or email. I have found their website to be very helpful, they have a F&Q's area. Good luck!
