SOURCE: Intex salt water chlorinator not producting chlorine

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.

SOURCE: I have an intex chlorinator and an intex 24' x 48

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

SOURCE: We keep getting code 92 (high salt). There water

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.

SOURCE: Low flow indicator light comes on chronically.

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.

SOURCE: no light on cell status on my chlorine generator

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.

No flow light is on. Have cleaned cell, back washed filter , cleaned out basket attached to pump and basket in skimmer box. Flow light is still on.


If you are referring to a salt system and your filter is clean. You will need to replace your flow sensor.

No flow is red and no chlorine lights indicating chlorine


I assume you are describing a salt system.
Ensure all baskets are cleaned out, filter is clean and proper flow of water.
Check salt cell for calcium buildup.
Beyond that it could need a flow sensor replaced.

My Krystal clear saltwater system keeps saying low flow and shutting off the motor. What is going on?


It sounds like there might be an obstruction in the inlet (suction) line.
Try seeing if you can back-flush the line with a garden hose to unblock it.

I have a sand filter and my levels say ideal but water is real cloudy after adding chlorine


Take a sample to a pool shop and find out. If the pool has been green you may have dead algae floating around, a sand filter will never take that out. You need to flock it or new water. Then there is the toy you call a sand filter, OK when everything is perfect but small filters and pumps just won't handle a very dirty pool.

I suggest you clean the cell according to manual and try it then. If it keeps producing chlorine then keep swimming. If the pump is flowing water fully (if not clean baskets and filter) and it can't keep the chlorine above 2 ppm and you have 30 to 50 ppm stabilizer in the water then there is a major problem in the chlorinator. I don't trust the salt indicator on some chlorinators but that is less important than if it chlorinates. You can but salt test strips. I hope this helps.

I can't explain all of this but to get the rid of the green and reduce the salt level you need to drain half the water and refill. At this you need to shock it so the chlorine is up to about 10 ppm. You need some way of testing to tell this. If your chlorinator is ok then when you start the pump and chlorinator it should continue cleaning it out. The dead algae will be filtered out with the filter. If the flow slows down you will need to clean the filter with a water sprayer on a hose. I hope this helps.

Low flow


If your pool has a skimmer system there is a hose from the bottom of the skimmer going to the suction port that goes through the pool wall. Disconnect the hose off of the blue adapter and unscrew the blue adapter there is a screen / strainer right there whatever gets pass the skimmer basket gets plugged up in that screen.

Low flow indicator on saltwater pool filter


If your pool has the skimmer system there is a hose coming from the bottom of the skimmer to the wall of the pool which would be your suction to the pump. Disconnect the hose clamp from the suction port that goes through the wall of the pool remove the hose then unscrew the blue adapter on the inside of the pool there you will find a strainer / screen. Whatever gets pass the basket in the skimmer get's plugged up in that screen causing the pump to starve for water causing the LOW FLOW sensor to go off on the Saltwater pump.

Let me know if this helps any.
