Could be a couple of things. Have you put the right amount of salt in according to the tables (I find I always have to add a bit more then the tables say). Have you let the salt mix completly by stirring up any salt laying on the bottom of the pool and by running the pump for at least 24 hours before turning on the salt generator. Depending on how large the pool is you may need more than 24 hours before turning on the salt generator. If still doesnt work than you can try adding more salt a little bit at a time over a couple of days. Also check to see if the electrolytic plates need cleaning. Unscrew the large grey connector to the left of where the wire goes into the sensor and look inside the unit on the left)

Seems like you may not have the pump and the salt chlorinator in sync... If your water is dark green and not a big pool, you may want to drain and refill, if you have a large pool, you may want to shock and then try the following...
1.Make sure you have added the correct amount of salt...
2.Set your timer for your pump for 12 hrs.
3.Wait 15 minutes and then turn on your intex salt water system..
4.Set you hrs of operation on your salt water system for 10 to 11 hrs...
5.After running the system for 3 days, check your chlorine level..

If water clears and chlorine level is high, adjust the time.. You will have to re-sync the pump and chlorinator.. If the pump turns off before the chlorinator finishes it's cycle, you will get a "LOW FLOW" alarm..
I hope this helps and good luck.. Please rate and comment on the information provided.

You should always follow the instructions on the manual .. I have a 18X33X4 oval and had to start with over 350 lbs of salt and ran the pump without the chlorinator for 24 hours to properly disolve the salt. Then, I started with 12 hrs pump cycle with 10 hrs of chlorination in between the 12 hrs. Keep checking the chlorine level and adjust time from there. Currently at temperatures of 85 to 100, I run the system at 10 hrs pump with 8 hrs chrlorinator and water is Crystal Clear... In the 2 years with the intex system, I have not added any chemicals to my pool. I once had an issue when the water level went low while I was on vacation, when I came back, the chrolinator had turned off due to low flow and my pool water was green.. As soon as I re-started the cycle, a few days later, Crystal Clear again... NO CHEMICALS OR SHOCK added.... Hope this helps....

What is a code 93?


Code 93 = Good News for You! :-D It is your Saltwater Chlorinator's way of letting you know that it is working properly and your pool's water has a level of salt that is optimal/good.

Code 93 just lets you know it is not actively converting salt to chlorine...it is in 'standby mode.' When you first programmed the number of hours you wanted it to run (by pressing the left (down)arrow until you heard the beep, then pressing the right (up) arrow until you heard the beep - then pressing up until you reached the desired number of hours you wanted the unit to operate (minimum 1 hour, maximum 12 hours)) the unit began converting salt to chlorine immediately.
This is good news for you. Once the number of hours of operation are up, your unit will give you a code when you press either button. If your salt level is too low, you will receive code 91 indicating this, if your salt level is too high, you will receive code 92 indicating this, if the water flow is too low, you will receive code 90 indicating this (this gives you the opportunity to correct this before the next cycle begins. If there is no error with your pool's water, your unit will go into standby and wait until it is time to run the numbers of hours you programmed it for (it will begin it's cycle at the same time each day unless reprogrammed by you). When this happens, you will find code 93.

So, just to recap:
Code 93 = Good
Code 92= Salt level too HIGH (Empty approx. 20% of pools water & refill with fresh water.)
Code 91 = Salt level too LOW (Add salt.)
Code 90 = Low Water Flow (Check your filter. If it is working properly, you may find that it is too small for your pool. The filter that came with my pool was FAR TOO SMALL - I spent more time cleaning the pool than swimming in it. My 18' x 4' pool came with a 1500 filter. Now, I have a 4000 Sand Filter. This + the Saltwater Chlorinator = practically no maintenance. Together, these were approximately a $500 investment. WELL WORTH IT!!!)
Code 88 = Startup mode. (Press down arrow until you hear the beep. Press up arrow until you hear the beep. Press up arrow until you have the unit set to operate the number of hours you desire.)
As an extra FYI: The unit works with the sun. This means the unit turns the salt from your pool into natural chlorine which is then sent back into your pool. The sun turns this natural chlorine into salt. Your filter sends this salt into your saltwater chlorinator where it is again converted into natural chlorine & returned to your pool where then sun...I think you get it. ;-) It's a continuous process. ~This being the case, when you program your saltwater chlorinator, it is best to set it up to help it work with the sun rather than setting it up to compete with the sun. You do this by programming it to run at night. This way, your unit isn't working hard to generate chlorine at the same time the sun is diligently converting the chlorine to salt. I've read several articles where people argue that you should run your saltwater system at night & your filter during the day. I don't understand this concept. My filter runs 24/7 & my saltwater chlorinator runs 12 hours - from 8pm to 8am. Since I set my pool up to operate this way, I have not had to clean it at all other than backwashing the filter every other month just for principle. My water is crystal clear.
One further note of interest: My pool holds approximately 6000 gallons of water. For this, Intex recommends 135 pounds of salt. Because of some advice I'd read posted by other users, I started with only one 40lb bag. This was all my pool needed. Approximately once/year, I add one more 40lb bag.
RJBALLZER777, because you are receiving code 93, I realize you have set your pool up correctly and, therefore, are possibly thinking, "Why is she telling me all of these things I don't need to know?" I apologize if that is what you are thinking. I am really posting for those who have not gotten it just right the first time (or who are doing their research before buying as I did) so that they may get several questions answered at once. Hope you don't mind that I used your question as a means to post. (That's why I answered your question right off the bat.) Hope this post helps some.

Hello,
Start buy draining 20% of your water and adding fresh.
Filter normal for about 12 hours.
Now test your salt PPM
You can get a salt test kit at any pool supply
you want your salt ppm to be as close to 3000 as possible
any lower than 2700 and you will not produce enough sanitizer and over 3500 can produce high salt code, just taste bad, and ruin your cells in the unit
As for not working, yes the unit will not function properly with any code that comes up

Hello,
the amount of salt that they reccomend in the book is just a starting point
You need to get a salt test kit that reads in #'s not colors
Get your pool to as close to 3000ppm as possible
lower than 2800ppm and you will not produce enough chlorine
any higher than 3500ppm and you can trigger high salt alarm, have bad tasting water, or even get cloudy water
Like you have done, when adding salt , filter only for 6 hours or so to fully disolve

Saltwater System won't bring chlorine level down


depending on the type/brand of salt cell/system you have I would recommend turning it to its lowest setting or off. Most salt cells don't measure chlorine level and will keep producing even if its crazy high. Most cells produce chlorine at about 8.0pH, so it will keep raising your pH as it generates. I would leave it off for a couple of days, get control of your pH and keep measuring your free chlorine level until it's acceptable. If you need to lower your chlorine level quickly you can use sodium thiosulfate to do so. You will have to add acid frequently to compensate for the salt system. Keep an eye on the TA as adding alot of acid will eventually lower your TA as well. Hope this helps.

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.
