I am getting a error code of 92 on my intex swg. I have put 4 - 40 lb bags into a 15 x 48 pool and brushed the bottom to distribute the salt evenly. I left the pump on for 24 hrs and then set the swg for...


I installed a new Intex ECO 8110 unit on my 15' above ground, steel sided pool. After about 10 hours of use I had the "code 92' high salt alert that shut the system down. I knew that my salinity wasn't high because the local Pinch A Penny pool store does free water analysis and i was given the okay just a week prior. We had also received a bit of rain in the interim so I knew that the alert was false.

Here is how I fixed the problem (so far).
1. Turn your unit off.
2. Disconnect the power cord from the outlet and wait for 2 minutes.
3. Unscrew the retaining nut at the electro-cell connector and unplug the connection.
4. Rotate the plug 180 degrees to reverse the polarity of the plug and re-connect to the electro-cell.
5. Reconnect the power cord to your receptacle.
6. Turn the unit on, wait for the green light to burn steady.
7. Monitor for the next 5-10 minutes.

My unit has worked flawlessly for 3 hours. If i receive another "code 92" alert i will repeat the procedure which will result in bringing the unit back to its original polarity.

I just had a new Hayward s244s sand filter put in and now am having problems draining water from my pool. For some reason I can't get it to drain past the skimmer level. Suggestions?


What are you using to drain the pool? A sand pool filter is not the best option for draining. You need a submersible pump for that. Why are you draining the pool? The filter should be used to filter water, not drain. It is possible, but not efficient.

Our blower randomly turns on


The spa side switch probably has a short and will need to be replaced. If the rubber coated buttons are cracked then moisture has gotten inside and corroded the contacts.

Why does the spa empty when the pump shuts off? just got a pool with an aqualink RS4 and no manual to look at. thanks


This problem can be caused by a couple things. the two most likely culprtits are either the absence of check valves and or incorrect actuator settings when the pump shuts down.

Your spa is most likely higher than the pool. You most likely have a spill over (waterfall) feature from the spa into the pool. This is so the spa water can be recirculated in pool mode. One of your actuator valves may be slightly off closed position in order to allow spill over in the spa, or you may have a dedicated overfill pipe in the circuit to feed water to spa in pool mode.

Whichever spill over piping you have set up, when the pump shuts down, water from the spa ( higher level than the pool) will backfeed through the overflow spa circuit, back through the pump and into the pool through either drain or return. Effectively rendering your spa level the same level as your pool.

To fix this problem, simply install check valves into the spa runs and as a secondary measure put one into the pool return run ( the run that feeds water to pool).

This will insure that when the pump shuts down, no matter which position the valve actuators may be set, water can not back feed through the pump circuit from spa to pool.

My jacuzzi keeps emptying into the pool when the pump switches off and then refills from the pool when the pump comes on - do you know what the problem is?


I agree it sounds like a check valve. if the water in the pool matches the water level in the spa, or drains all the way (depending on how far the spa is raised) then it is the valve before the pump, but if it goes down to the jets (and not any further) then it is a check valve or valve on the retun side of the plumbing ( after heater or chlorinator).
