I just added salt running just the pump per instructions, but when I turn the top thing to release air on pump no water comes out is that normal??

It's normal for a 1-10 seconds or so until the air in the system releases fully, than pool water should start coming out.. At that point you know the air is out and your system is ready for optimal performance... I have a 16 X 48 Ultra Frame pool and it takes me a week or more to get the water right... The salt system does a nice job creating Chlorine but the PH, Stabilizer and Salt Count must be in the proper Ranges before the salt system will get the chlorine to the proper level... In other words, don't concentrate on the chlorine during start-up until you get the other levels correct.. The quicker you get them to the correct levels the quicker you will be swimming..

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.

Low salt

The salt chlorinator cell should be cleaned with a proper cell cleaning fluid. Your pool surface may coat the salt cell with calcium and unless this has been removed it will not generate chlorine efficiently no matter how much salt you add to the pool water.
When the salt cell has been cleaned properly then the amount of salt in your pool may exceed then recommended concentration and it will overload the power supply to the salt cell and the salt concentration will need to be reduced.

Do this system have a filter on it to clean it keep tell me high salt

No... The 8110 model does not have an internal filter..If you are getting high salt alarm, check you salt concentration level... Should be between 2000 and 3000ppm.. 2600 ppm optimal. If above 4000ppm, drain about 20% of the water and fill with fresh water and check salt level again.. You should be back to normal.... Hope this helps you... Please write a comment if this helps...

Water keeps turning green

Check the salt concentration level.. Should be between 2000 and 3000 ppm.. Ideal 2800..
Check your chlorine level... should be between 2 to 3ppm.. Ideal 3ppm
You may need to increase the cycle time up..Big pools may need up to 10 to 12 pump and 8 to 10 hrs chlorination...

My low salt light on my Hurlcon vx7t salt chlorinator keeps comming on.How do i adjust it?

A low salt level warning is indicated on your VX Chlorinator if the salt level drops. If Low Salt is indicated, check again in 24 hours and then if it is still indicated, add two 25kg bags of salt to the shallow end of your pool. Run the filtration system for approx. 6 hours to help mix the salt in the pool. It can take up to a day for the salt to fully dissolve.
If the low salt light is still on, then you should get your pool water tested. If the Salinity is above 4000ppm then you may need to have your Chlorinator checked.
Warning: Some people recommend that you put salt directly in the skimmer box. This is a very bad practice as it allows very high concentrations of salt to be passed through your filtration and other pool equipment.
Hope this helps.

My system is reading high salt what should i do? It has rained all day in my area

I suggest you test the salt concentration. If you don't have a way to test it then you can bring a sample in a small jar with a tight lid to a pool supply store and most will test it for free. I hope this helps.

I Have a Easy Set Pool 15X36, And a Salt Water Generator How much Salt do I add for the first Time?

The Compupool CPSC/CPA Series is recommended to run at a salt concentration of 3500 ppm. If you are not installing a Compupool unit, check your manufacturer's instructions for their recommended level of concentration . Use a salt that is at least 99.8% pure NaCl. The preferred salt is an evaporated, granulated, food quality, NON-iodized salt. Avoid using salt with anti-caking agents like sodium ferrocyanide, also known as yellow YPS (prussiate of soda. These cause some discoloration of fittings and pool surface finishes. DO NOT use calcium chloride.

Using a salt water test strip, measure the current salt level of your pool. For the Compupool generators, ideal is 3500 ppm. If the level is low, determine the number of gallons in your pool and add salt according to the Salt Table. For example, if your pool has 15,000 gals of water and your current salt level is 2500, you need to add 125 lbs of salt.

Low salt indicator

high concentration? Salt is salt except for the fact in aq pool you want 98% pure and it must not be iodized salt
Also before generating salt with the timer you must have the right amount of salt
the #'s in the manual are just guidelines
get a salt test kit and get your pool to 3000ppm you need to filter only 24 hours or so getting to the 3000ppm wheather you ad salt or need to drain water and ad fresh none the less get it to 3000ppm
Now worry about your chlorine level if it is to high leave alone until it comes down if too low then run the generator for a few hours if it does not show on the scale at all try 4-6 hours
you will get a knack for the amount of time you need for your chlorine situation

if once all of this is set right and you still get high reading on salt unit take it apart as directed and spray it out with the garden hose
it is really simple only 4 screws
