What is the appropriate amount of salt? The manual is only a starting point.
You need a salt test kit that reads in #'s not color
Get your pool to as close to 3000ppm
as you can any lower than 2800 and you will not generate enough chlorine any higher than 3700 and you can become cloudy and bad tasting
Yes the pump is weak and will create problems in the future with your system turning green
You need to continually use a non foaming algaecide along with a stabilizer to help hold the chlorine level
chlorine is consumed in many ways heat,sun,sun tan oil,rain,#of swimmers and so on so there may be days you need to generate 5 hours and sum 12 you will get used to what is good for you
Also clean the junk paper cartridge every day intex pumps are not even close to being sufficient for the size pool it comes with
I will use generic #'s for this illustration since I do not know your gallons of water or pump size
any pool needs to be turned over at the very least 3-4 times in a cycle
if your pool is 5000gl and you have a 1500gl ph pump you see that it takes 10 or so hours to filter at the minimum now add in that the pump slows down a bit when the paper filter gets loaded
A cartridge filter can look clean but be clogged with little particles that you do not see
Hope all of this is some help
Just remeber filter filter filter

The only problem is that ther is a leak in the liner. Generally at the bottom where a rock or debris has made a small hole. They can be patched but the pool will need to be drained. Call your local pool service company.

SOURCE: Looking for an intex filter pump
The best solution to this problem not to find a replacement intex pump/filter. I suggest getting a system with a 50 square foot cartridge filter and a 3/4 hp pump such as hayward or pentair offers. You will be amazed at the difference a little quality can make.

SOURCE: Hayward pump hose and intex pool
Im thinking that hot glue would not harden completly in a direct sun situation not to mention the potential mess
What I did was go to my local hardware store and bought rubber o rings ( sorry dont remember what size) put them on the fitting slipped the hose over it and clamped on top of that area. Has been fine all summer
hope you figure it out
