Yes, you can add chlorine. Liquid chlorine will raise the ph a bit. Don't know what kind of shock you are adding, but wait a day, recheck ph level, than adjust.

SOURCE: it says low flow, how can i fix it

Low flow means there is insufficient water traveling through the cell to make CL. Is your cell clean and clear? Is your filter clean and clear? Clean your cell according to the manufacturers instruction and back wash your filter.

SOURCE: We change our pool that we have had for 10 years

The pool is green because you didn't take the metal out of the water first. It is too late now to do that ... you will just have to let the filter grab it. It may trake several days. Run the filter 24/7 for those couple days for best results.

Next time you fill your pool ... get a sequestering agent to grab the metals before you introduce CL to your pool. Use the sequestering agent according to the container instructions.

Your salt level should be around 3200 ppm, is it?

How much salt do you put in a 22,000gal. pool?


WOW... You have a huge above ground pool! Are you planning to use the Intex chlorinator to chlorinate your 22,000 gallon pool??? If you are, take a look at the max gallon rating and how long you may need to run... Here's a chart that should help you determine how much salt to add... After adding the salt, run the pump for 24 hrs without the chlorinator to properly dissolve the salt... Don't be surprised if you need to add above 500 lbs!!!
Good luck and hope this works for you...

I have an 18 by 48 Intex easy set pool and have had a high salt reading I emptyed about a 1/3 and ran clean in but still to high now its turning green what do you suggest I shock it with?


For your pool size you should have started with 160 lbs of salt. 18x48= 6,400 gallons of water. The manual says the only way to lower salt is to partially drain and refill with water, I do not believe there is anything you can add to remove salt. I would think you can throw in some regular chlorine shock to get the green out while you are adjusting the salt level.

Hi i have a 18 x 48 above ground intex frame pool with a salt water pump /chlorinator system. i have put the required amount of salt in 75 kg and it has fully desolved. the alarm keep coming up on the pump...


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

My intex saltwater system green light then low salt light


You need to add salt to the water. How much depends on what size pool you have. Your owner's manual will tell you exactly how much to add when the low salt light comes on. On my Intex I would need to add 35 lbs.

Low salt


Same here, been getting the 91 code, 3 times in last 1 1/2 weeks. Added salt. Came on today, so I checked titanium plates and they were half clogged with white stuff. DO NOT ADD SALT just because 91 code is on, which I have done. . You need to check plates and clean if clogged, with hose and some pressure. I used a plastic wire tie to clean, do not use metal item to clean plates, you'll scratch the plates and ruin them. Mine was clogged on 2 plates full length.
