Salt generating systems cuase pH to rise over time so you generator appears to have been working. What is the salt level in the water? Perhaps your pool is low hence no more chlorine generation.

Can you change an Intex - chlorine above swimming pool to a saltwater?


Sure no problem. Just make sure salt level and other chemistry (PH, ALK, Hardness) is within normal ranges. There are number of Salt system available these days, some designed specifically for above ground. Your best bet is to visit a local pool retailer, and ask them for their recommendations based on your pool size type, and type of equipment

I have an intex salt water system for my 16ft round pool. My FC level is reading 0. Should I proceed to boost the system. PH is high also. Thanks.


run your generator for the full 12 hours. You need some serious sanitizer or you will be going green soon.
Also add some stabilizer so that the chlorine level does not drop so easily
As for the ph hit it with some ph down

It wouldnt hurt to get a bottle of non foaming algacide also

Do I have to drain my 24 ft round above ground pool to install an intex salt-chlorine generating system? I have just opened he pool and the ph and chlorine levels are where they should be.


no need to drain go to the intex web site and look up your pool size for the starting amount of salt you need.
After ading it run your filter for at least 24 hours before trying to generate use this web site and click on the english version for pump 8110 once it downloads go to page 13 14 15
to find the salt amount you need

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.

High ph, algea, salty taste


You are going to need to buy chemicals anyway (acid for sure and probably algaecide) so find a good pool store tech and have them test your water and recommend the proper doses.

In summary though, you should not taste the salt in the pool and being able to means the salt content is to high. Chlorine generators will not work if the salt is to high and the fix is to drain water and dilute the remaining water until the salt content is no higher than max. No chlorine could explain the algae.

Generators also cause the pH to rise over time so you will need to keep acid on hand to counteract that.
