Can I add chlorine to my salt water pool to get rid of the cloudiness


no chlorine generators are for maintaining chlorine level once pool water is balanced you still will have to shock pool from time to time

We got a above ground salt water pool an it's turning a little green what would be the best thing to put in it.


The first thing to do is to shock it with vinyl to about 10 ppm. This should start the progress to blue. Follow the Intex instructions to make sure the pool contains the correct amount of salt and stabilizer. The pump, filter and chlorinator should be run continuously until the water has clarified. The chlorine should then be kept between 2 and 4 ppm. One last suggestion, the filter gets plugged more quickly when you have shocked the pool to get rid of algae so make sure you clean the filter to keep the flow up. I hope this helps.

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.

My water was crystal clear when delivered. I added the salt, ran the filter pump for 24 hrs as instructed. Turned on my Intex saltwater pump and within an hour water is green. Cannot find anything on...


I am not impressed at all with these salt water chlorinators.Shock the water and keep the filter running next day add a powdered chlorine.filter still running. check the balance with test strip in about four hours.If chlorine level is good start vacuming the algee off the bottom of the pool. Now throw away the salt generator and stay with the chlorine packs every week to two weeks continue to monitor with test strips

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.

Salt water intex pool


Salt chlorine generators cause your pH to raise over time. You will need to add acid as needed to keep it within the ideal range. When adding acid, shoot for the low end (about 7.2) so you have room for the pH to creep up again before needing more acid.

As for green water, what is your chlorine reading, if any? Probably need to shock it not only again but an even bigger dose than the first. Shock treatments are not cumulative. If the first doesn't do the job, adding just a little more will not either.

My salt is high, does this cause pool water to turn green? why is my pool water green?


t is too high, the generator shuts off so no chlorine is being created; hence the green pool. Drain water and add fresh until the salt level is diluted back to the range your generator manufacturer suggests and your chlorine will return. In the mean time, shock the pool to get rid of the algae and the generator should be able to maintain it from there.
