Follow the guidelines on the salt package (bag) ... You should have about 3200 ppm salt for best results.

I have a 22 x 52 intex pool and need to know how much salt to add for the first time


the equipment should specify the parts per million of salt required, just google your make and model for information, then take the volume of water(22 x 52 x average depth) and multiply by the required salt concentration. then divide by the bag weight to get the number of bags required. Get some spare bags, but start with a few less than calculated, this enables fine tuning as you test the water a few times

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.

Our pool is cloudy, we got rid of the alge but cannot clear the pool. Have had this system over a month and still not clear . Followed install directions but no luck


This is a sign of not running the system long enough... 1st, make sure you have the correct amount of salt... The manual is very conservative... I have a 18 X 33 oval pool and I run my pump in the summer at 10 to 12 hrs with the chlorinator at 8 to 10 of those hrs and have very clear water.. If I drop from those hrs, my water starts getting cloudy and the sides of the pool get green...
Hope this helps and if it does, please rate!!!

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 just need to know how to set the salt water system. i have an 18ft pool and have put 3 bags of salt in so far.


You don't say how deep it is. Since you say 18 foot pool, I presume it is round. AT 2 foot depth = 3817; 3 foot depth = 5726 gallons; 4 foot depth 7634; 5 foot depth is 9543. Your salt bag should tell you how much to put in referencing the gallons.

I hope this helps. Thanks for using FixYa.com

I have forgotten how to set my salt water system to initially chlorinate the water after i added the salt. It keeps beeping and the code says no salt is detected.


Could be a couple of things. Have you put the right amount of salt in according to the tables (I find I always have to add a bit more then the tables say). Have you let the salt mix completly by stirring up any salt laying on the bottom of the pool and by running the pump for at least 24 hours before turning on the salt generator. Depending on how large the pool is you may need more than 24 hours before turning on the salt generator. If still doesnt work than you can try adding more salt a little bit at a time over a couple of days. Also check to see if the electrolytic plates need cleaning. Unscrew the large grey connector to the left of where the wire goes into the sensor and look inside the unit on the left)
