Be sure the pump is turned off before you try.

Our pump continuosly beeps and reads low flow...no matter what we do.!! Help!! I thought this would keep our water clean like the other reviews I have read. We currently have the Intex 12x4 and are using...


It says low flow because that is what is happening.
You either have air in the system, or blockage


Start by checking your hoses and both inlet and outlet areas.
Also check where the inlet hose goes into the motor
there is a plastic grid molded into the front of the motor housing where the hose connects to
this area cloggs up with all kinds of debris

no hook every thing back up
open the bleeder screw on top of the cartridge a few turns and if your motor has one open it also

now open your outlet side first and wait for water to come out of the bleeders
now open the inlet side
now turn pump on for 30 seconds and close the bleeders motor one first if you have one

this should do it

as for thinking the salt system keeps your pool cleaner that is 50% correct
Many things factor into keeping any pool crystal clear
first off the pump is no where near strong enough to circulate the water and therefor causing you to need to filter almost 24/7

There is really to much for me to type for everything you need to know

Please pull up my name and read some of my posts for green water,low flow,
and other code problems
I am sure you will find them all helpfull
I have been running my system and the same 2 filters this being my 4th season and have never gone green or triggered any alarms

Good luck

Water flow seems to restricted and the hose caves in


I FOUND ON MY INTEX POOL WHEN HAVING THE SAME TROUBLE IT HAD BLOCKAGE BETWEEN THE 1 1/4 HOSE ADAPTER ON THE INLET SIDE OF THE CONNECTION SUPPLYING THE PUMP AND THE BLUE FILTER SCREEN BEFORE THE OUTLET VALVE. MIGHT BE WORTH CHECKING THERE AS THE STRAINER BASKET WILL NOT CATCH ALL THE FINE DEBRIS. TAKE YOUR OUTLET HOSE OFF AND OPEN THE VALVE AND SEE IF IT IS RETRICTED.

Low flow indicator on


  1. Plug your inlet and outlet openings so that you can do the next steps
  2. Assuming you have checked your outlet for blockage (skimmer, screen, etc.) take the hose off the end of the chlorinator (goes to the pool inlet) and check the elements for buildup. If all clear
  3. Take the hose off the pump inlet (comes from the pool outlet) and check for hair, grass, etc. clogging the inlet.

New Intex FP621 4000 Pool Pump Noisy


I have a 16 x 48 intex pool with the 1inch inlet and outlet. I purchased the intex 4000 pump. The attachments are too big for the inlet and outlet so i then purchased the adapters. The plungers are very noisy and allow air to get into the pump. I removed them and hooked the hoses up to the adapters directly. That worked as long as the adapters were new. This year the seal comes loose and allows air to get into the pump. I even tried allowing the top nut to be loose to allow air to escape. This year nothing works. The pump is just too strong for the holes. I was considering cutting the holes bigger and glueing seals on there but i was concerned about creating weak spots in the pool. I am tired of spending money on it so i did the redneck thing. I can say that because well, you might consider me one. I took the inlet hose off the connector and plugged the hole with one of those little black things. I took the hose and run it up through the hole in between the liner and the poles and down into the pool. If you run it over the top it will not work correctly. Take the hose and tie them together between the two sides as best you can to keep the hose in the pool. If you look at the smaller intex pools that dont have holes, that is how they have the pump hooked to the pool. VOILA! You have an airtight inlet to the pump. You do not need to do that to the outlet because its not sucking water its just pushing it. So, just hook the hose up as you wish. When you need to clean the filter, I put wash clothes in the hoses to plug them and voila. No air gets into the filter. Done! It is actually keeping my pool clean this year. Also, i purchased one of those aqua vacuums and it does work great for this pool. Once you get the big stuff, sweep it with a pool broom and the filter will do its job. You can vacuum these pools with the filter type pumps. Next time, i will purchase a sand filter and be done with it. Happy swimming with less work.

I bought an Intex 15' x 42" above ground pool at a garage sale. No instruction or DVD were included. How is the skimmer set up?


Plug the inlet & suction openings with provided plugs
Hook up the hoses.
Release vent screw from the top of the filter housing.
Remove hose plugs.
Start pump
when water comes out filter housing vent - close it.
check for proper flow.
