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.

SOURCE: I keep getting code 90 (low water flow) on my

I had the same problem. I cleaned and then changed the filter, cleaned the sensor, everything the book said. It ended up that there were leaves and stuff clogging the strainer right as the water leaves the pool and goes into the hose on the way to the filter. Check there.

SOURCE: I just got an Intex automatic Salt water system

hello
you are looking at about 135 pounds to start
Bags of salt are usually 40 lbs
Buy 4 but only put in 3 to start.
You need to get 99%pure pool salt sold at walmart and pool stores 6-10 dollors.
Also get a test kit for salt and get your pool to 3000ppm
only filter for the first 24 hours or so until pool registers the 3000ppm no more than 3800 and no less than 2700 lesser amounts than 3000 does not produce enough sanitizer when you generate. Now that you are close to the 3000 you can generate chlorine.

SOURCE: Green water with salt water filtration system- HELP

you can not blindly just add salt
you need a salt test kit that reads #'s, not color
Get your salt content to as close to 3000ppm as you can any lower than 2800 and you will not produce enough chlorine and any more than 3500 and it will taste bad and could make your water cloudy or trigger high salt alarms
Also remeber to run filter only for 24 hours after adding salt

you also need to realize that a pool goes green for many reasons lack of sanitizer,heat,sun,rain,sun tan oil, 3 of swimmers
A pool need to be turned over at the bare minimum of 3-4 times in a day.
Intex filters are not sufficient to properly do the task
only a good sand filter and seperate pump of about 1 horse will really keep a pool sufficiently cleand but if you follow my advise you can do it with the intex
lets start with the filtering I believe your pool is around 5000 gl

if you have a 2000 gl ph pump then you need to be filtering 7 1/2 -10 hours just to keep your pool clear you do the math for you
as for grnerating your chlorine time varies depending on the situations I mentioned earlier
it is good you are using a stabilizer but that only goes so far if it was hot and sunny and a lot of use chlorine will get ate up any way
And make sure your algaecide is a non foaming kind and stick to the directions
now to your problem at hand
you now need to as you did shock it but you also need to use a lot of elbow grease and remeber this is going to be tedius

Clean your cartridge with the garden hose blast it in the folds as hard as you can
start your filter again and now add 2 gallons of chlorine or house hold bleach

let filter for 12 hours and then with a pool brush not the bristles under your vacuum head scrub the sides and walls continue filtering until you see the settled algae and then vacuum

now clean your cartridge again and repeat if the chlorine is still high you do not need to add but if it went low again then add 1 more gallon

continue doing this until you can see a huge difference
once you can then start with your algaecide again
at this point overdose it as directed on the bottle once your chlorine is low enough to get in then you need to get in and brush under the seems
with the intex liner there are too many seams and folds that need to be addressed

another hint is to have 2 filters one drying while the other is in the unit
a wet freshly cleaned filter does not work and trap particles as well as one that has been dried

Another good chemical to use is a water clarifier this helps minute particles that you can not see clump together thus making it easier for thr cartridge to trap

good luck and if you have any more questions you can e-mail me through this site

Have no owners manual and can't figure out how to set the timer!


code 88

Is the Setup/Start up Code. it is displayed until you set the timer. which you do so by holding down the down arrow till you hear a beep, then hold down the up arrow till you here a beep. from there you can set the time and then to lock it in repeat the process
