Hello,
to reduce just stop generating chlorine.
Many factors contribute to reducing chlorine also like # of bathers,sun,heat,and so on
Keep an eye on the level and when it gets low start generating.
You will learn what it takes for your pool under the situations I mentioned

Solving Salt Water Pool Problems


The big problems with salt water pools is actually the salt in the pool water itself. Salt water chlorination has many benefits over standard pool chlorination methods, but with a salt in the pool system there are significant drawbacks, hidden expenses, problems, and potential dangers. The best way to enjoy salt chlorination is to get the salt out of the pool. The Chlorine Genie Pool Water Management System does just that. In fact the system can produce and take care of up to 5 important pool chemicals for you. If you are fed up with salt water pool problems and ready for the cutting edge in pool water sanitation, check out the new advantages of Chlorine Genie's Chlorine Generator Technology.

My intex saltwater system pool is cloudy


The chlorine level maybe too low and it is allowing algae to start growing.
Check the Ph level, it should be around 7.
Check the chlorine level in the pools water, use your chlorine test kit.
Check the salt levels, make sure it is at the correct concentration, too low a salt level and the Intex will not be able to generate enough chlorine.

Ok i have the intex 1600gph sand filter saltwater combo system and my pool hold 8000 gallons i can run the chlorinator 24 hrs a day and it will not get the chlorine and free chlorine above 1 the ph is 7.5...


Yes, what is your stabilizer level? It should be between 30 and 50 ppm. If the stabilizer is too low then the sun will cause the chlorine to dissipate faster than the chlorinator can produce it. Some salt chlorinator manufactures recommend 80ppm but that reduces the chlorine efffect. If you can't get the chlorinator working then using a floating tablet chlorinator is a good option to keep the pool open. I hope this helps.

My water is cloudy and says salt level low.....it seems salty enough as I can feel and taste it. Is there chemicals I am supposed to be adding or does this system keep it clean all alone just by adding...


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.

Excessive Scale build up on the Chlorine generator Plates. I Have to clean them every day.


Your water is WAY out of whack ... Please check all the chemicals including: Chlorine (ideal is 4 ppm), pH (should be 7.4), Alk (should be 100), Cyanuric Acid (outside pool only)(should be 60 to 80), Calcium (should be 350). Check the balance (see your pool supply company for the procedure to check). Get your salt to around 3400 ppm ...

If your calcium is high, the only way to reduce it is add water with calcium of a known low content of Calcium. If you have too much salt ... you will, again, have to dump water to get rid of the salt.

What about metals? Have you removed the metal from your water? Let the chlorine go to zero and add a sequestering agent ... follow the instrucitons on the bottle. You should add water only through a "bobby sox" filter to keep metals to a minimum.

I hope this helps you ... thanks for using FixYa.com

No chlorine being produced


although you are close to the amount of salt that is recommended all pools are just different enough that the salt table is just a starting point if you do not have enough salt it is still possible to not trigger the alarm but not produce enough chlorine.
Start by getting a salt test strip kit and get your pool to 3000ppm this may take a day or so since you really need to filter and circulate the pool for 24 hours in between adding salt
Once you get the salt right then move on to generating

also do not worry about total chlorine you just need to concentrate on free chlorine this is the amount available in the pool to do it's job and dont forget to ad a stabilizer to help hold the chlorine level on hot sunny days

No chlorine reading


Salt is sodium chloride, you can only measure salt levels now as your CL (cloride) is bound to a NA (sodium). Table salt =NACL, Your Intex system will tell you if your salt level is too high or too low but your old test equipment for free chlorine will continue to tell you no chlorine as it can't react with the chloride any longer as it is bound to the salt. That is why they tell you you never have to add more because the salt stabilizes it. Your chlorine is there it's bound to the salt. Use the pool it's fine and it makes your water feel really soft! Just keep the salt level right and your fine> It's confusing as they call the unit a chlorine generator! I had the same issue, called Intex and they told me the above.
