You can test if the 8110 is generating any chlorine by taking a water sample directly at the pool return. You can invert your container so it stays filled with air until you have it positioned in front of your return. Make sure your test chemicals are not expired and test the sample. You should get a high reading if the 8110 is producing any chlorine. If it is producing chlorine, you may want to make sure you have the correct level of Cyanuric Acid. In my pool, if the Cyanuric Acid level is low, the chlorine level drops to zero quite quickly.
If the sample indicated your 8110 is not producing any chlorine, I would check to see if you have approx. 24V DC between B+ and Gnd on the screw terminal strip on the main circuit board. The transformer supplies two voltages to the 8110. One voltage powers the electronics and the other powers the electrolytic circuit. So it is possible for part of the unit to work if one voltage has failed.

high chlorine can cause problems too it will give false readings for your ph and alkalinity.
The most important thing to remeber is that there is a sequence to follow.
First buy a test kit for salt about 11 bucks for 10 tests. you need to have the ppm's at 3000
if it is to high drain 20% water re-fill and filter/curculate for 6 hours then test again. once at 3000 then go for your chlorine it should be between 1.0 and 1.5 with a test kit now with those 2 in line go for ph adjustment ph should be as close 2 7.6 as possible. Ph will cause more problems like cloudy water or algea more than anything else.
another thing you need to realize is that the intex salt system sucks. Once you set it for the # of hours to chlorinate you are basically guessing as to what is needed. Yes there is a guidence chart as to hours to run but it is over kill and lets too much chlorine be generated start with 3-4 hours of generating but remember also that at 4 hours generating that is nowhere near enough filtering
you will need to shut power off get it out of sleep mode and continue to filter
on avberage a pool should be turned over 3 times a day my pool 7000gl and the 2000gph all in one intex salt pump needs run at least 10 hours a day alone without the chlorinator
my pool only 18' so with your total gallons it will be longer
one last thing to consider is that when in chlorine generating mode the filter slows down because of all the electronics. You can not hear it happen but if you put your hand in front of the discharge you can tell

From the FAQ, What should I do if code 92 appears?
There are several things you may need to check and do:
- Test the salt level first with Test Kit, drain approximately 20% of the pool water and refill with fresh water.
- If code 92 still appears despite the above step, there might be a electrolytic cell failure. Please contact Intex Service Center, and replace the cell if needed.

If you have excessive calcium in your pool the calcium will solidify on your titanium plates. Look for little bits of white scale (looks like paint chips) in the pool usually by the outflow. To fix, unplug the chlorinator, remove the inflow and outflow hoses from the chlorinator, also remove the flow meter (piece of pipe that has the wire attached to it. Look in at the titanium plates. If it has white calcium coating it, then flush with the hose till it all comes off, if it doesn't come off remove that piece of PVC and soak in vinegar (haven't had to do that but thats what the manual says). Manuall says to drain 25% of your pool and refill with fresh water but I elected to just keep cleaning it out when the alarm went off untill all the calcium in the water turned to solid (had to clean 3 or 4 times). Be sure and vacuum up the calcium in the pool.

What brand of salt water chlorine generator do you have?
Have your water tested professionally at a pool store. Balance the pool water chemistry. Check the electrolytic cell for any calcium deposits on plates and follow manufacturer's instructions to clean.
