Unplug from power then remove from system and soak in a 50% solution muratic acid and water for five or ten minutes the rinse with a high pressure nozzle on your hose. Repeat till it comes pretty clean. Being sure plates are free and loose from one another.

The cell does not read the correct salt level


Test your salt level with a Taylor salt kit to see what the actuall PPM is. You should be betwen 3200 and 3700. There is that possibility that your cell has developed a fault. Kit available at your pool supply place.

Have an intex 16 x48" salt water pool generator


I checked the Intex web site and here is what they said:

There are several things you may need to check and do:

- Test the salt level first with Test Kit, and add salt as needed.
- Remove the electrolytic cell for inspection and clean it if necessary.
- If code 91 still appears despite the above steps, there might be a possible electrolytic cell
failure. Please contact Intex Service Center, and replace the cell if needed.

NOTE: Always turn the power off and disconnect power cord before cleaning and servicing.

I hope this helps.

My salt water pump keeps saying low salt. I have had the water checked and there is plenty of salt. I have cleaned the cell and it still says low salt. The pump is on;y 1 year old. I dont know what else to...


I suggest you clean the cell according to manual and try it then. If it keeps producing chlorine then keep swimming. If the pump is flowing water fully (if not clean baskets and filter) and it can't keep the chlorine above 2 ppm and you have 30 to 50 ppm stabilizer in the water then there is a major problem in the chlorinator. I don't trust the salt indicator on some chlorinators but that is less important than if it chlorinates. You can but salt test strips. I hope this helps.

I have done everything the manual says, but my saltwater system will not stop blinking error code 91. The salt level is fine, and the cell is clean. Do I need to replace the cell. My pool is now green and...


Bummer!!! Looks like you checked both things that would cause the code 91 error for "Low Salt". Here's what I've done to solve my low salt "91 code in the past.. I overshoot by 1/2 bag = 20lbs of the recommended salt add quantity when the code appears. Calculate by using this formula..
.0067 X Pool Gallons. I have a 14,000 gallon pool and when I get the 91 code for low salt, I add about 110 lbs of salt. Manual says 93 lbs...let it circulate for 24 hours by running the pump only and then start the chlorination cycle.. Before doing this, you MUST make sure the cell in clean.. If any calcium buildup inside, it can give you a false "Low Salt" alarm.

I hope this helps!!

If this helps, please rate... Thanks

I have a 12,000 gallon abg pool Also the water is from a well system The low salt warning light came on I then cleaned the cell and reinstalled the cell only to have the High salt light come on I then...


any thing over 3500 can create alarms.

First of all make sure you are useing a test kit for salt that reads in #'s not color

your system can read low salt when it is high or even high can read low
The system only really knows something is wrong

your 7800ppm is ridiculously high

Now start draining 20% of your water at a time and refilling giving the system at least 6 hours of just filtering between drainings until you get to as close to 3000ppm as possible

under 2700ppm and you will not produce enough chlorine and can trigger alarms any higher than 3500ppm and you can trigger alarms,go cloudy, and not to mention corode any metal parts like an aluminum ladder

once you get the ppm to 3000 clean your cell one last time and you should be good to go

I would also check your water for metals since you used well water.
you may need to get a metal reducer to add to the pool

Intex salt water witha 18x48 witha 2000/gph pump. my salt water system keeps saying low salt... my salt tested fine after adding more and ive cleaned the cell... it will stay on about 20 min then beeps low...


nothing is wrong that you cant fix
you must have your salt no lower than 2800ppm
and no higher than 3800
3000ppm is the best
make sure you run filter only for 24 hours once you have correct salt then start generating

one last thing test with strips that read #'s not the color strips
