Help> My wife is going to through me out if I can't solve this problem. I was told the problem was a plugged filter in the fridge itself. Where is it located? I have an inline filter for water entering the fridge, it is okay.

i am not completely familliar with this system but i am pretty sure that opening the relief valve should allow water to exit providing all the valves are open. as for green pool, if the water is not moving, you will not be able to clear the water.
Having a pool at home can seem like a really awesome thing, but if its not cared for properly it can turn into a nuisance. There are a few small things that you can do on a weekly basis that will keep your pool clean and fun to play in. But keeping it clean can be very time consuming and physically taxing.
In movies you always see the pool boy skimming the top of the water of a pool with a long pole with a net on the end. What this does is it catches all the leaves and other stuff floating in the water. You will want to do this fairly often because when you leave stuff floating in the pool they will sink and then become close to impossible to get out and wreak havoc on your circulation system.
In addition to build up of leaves or branches from trees around the pool there will also be build up of chemicals that will make the water not be clear. To get rid of the chemical build up you are going to want to vacuum the pool. Whenever you vacuum make sure that your check the filters and clean them if you have to, for a clean pool you should vacuum once a week.
Once you have skimmed and vacuumed you are almost done! To make sure that you don't get algae build up you want to scrub the sides and floor of the pool. What you use to scrub the pool is dependent on what your pool is made out of. If the walls are plaster lined concrete you will want to use a stiff brush while for fiberglass you will want to use a softer brush so you don't ruin the walls.
<p>Basic Pool Care Tips<br />
<li>Test chlorine and pH at least 3 times per week. Have a comprehensive water test every 6-8 weeks at your local pool store. There is generally no charge for this test.</li>
<li>Operate pool equipment a minimum of 6-8 hours per day during winter months and for 10-12 hours per day during the summer for greatest overall benefit.</li>
<li>Brush the pool walls and floor a minimum of once a week.</li>
<li>To prevent damage to pool equipment make sure the water level never drops below the opening of the skimmer.</li>
<li>Lubricate backwash valve "O" rings on sand and DE filter four times a year. Lubricate pump lid "O" ring periodically with Lube specifically designed for use with swimming pool equipment.<br /><br /><img src="water_1.jpg" /><br /><br /></li>
<li>Test pH and add muriatic acid as indicated to maintain pH between 7.4 - 7.8. Never add more than 1 pint of acid at a time and wait at least 1 hour between treatments. Always add muriatic acid by dispersing into pool water opposite the skimmer and disperse as far away from the wall of the pool as you can safely reach. Use care not to drip acid or any chemicals on deck as it will cause deck etching and staining. Do not pour acid over steps, benches, or pool light. Make sure water is circulating.</li>
<li>Clean waterline tile with cleaner a minimum of once a month during peak season.</li>
<li>One month after initial pool start-up, add stain and scale inhibitor on a regular basis.</li>
<li>Always follow manufacturers instructions on product labels.</li>
<li><b>NEVER ADD WATER TO CHEMICALS</b> - Add chemicals to water.</li>
<li>Always wait one (1) hour between adding different chemicals unless otherwise directed.
<li><b>Sand Filters:</b> Backwash once per week</li>
<li><b>DE Filters:</b> Backwash once filter pressure increases 8-10 psi above your "clean pressure" noted at start-up.</li>
<li><b>Cartridge Filters:</b> Need to be taken apart and elements need to be cleaned once filter pressure increases 8-10 psi above your "clean pressure." This cleaning should be done at least a minimum of twice a year.</li></ul></li></ul></li></ol>
You can try using shock or liquid chlorine and bring the chlorine level back to 3 ppm.. 1 small bag can treat up to 10,000 gallons.. After that, raise the cycle time on your chlorinator to maintain that level...
If you do not want to use those chemicals, raise your pump cycle time to 12 hrs and your chlorinator to 10 or 11 hrs and should see some results within a few days... The chemical method should yield faster results... Good luck...
sometimes we overload our refrigerators and the doors will not close properly, next time you notice the water see if your doors are closed tightly and the seals engaged tightly. My wife has this habit of not checking after she has put away the remains of a big dinner or BBQ and I find drips of condensate water all over the floor as a result. The defrost collection pan overfills and the excess water goes on the floor. once the doors are closed properly the problem goes away.
By my calculations you are about 50 lbs over the requirement. Which code are you getting? I'm guessing code 91. Have you removed and cleaned the electrolytic
cell from the chlorinator? I get lots of calcium on mine from hard water from the well requiring a cleaning at least once per week. If you get this working and get a warning that you now have too much salt you'll need to drain off water and re-add to get the salt content correct.
salt does not solve your problem.
People do no realize that all the salt does for you is that it eliminates having to pour regular chlorine in.
Everything else stays the same as a normal pool with just plain ole h2o
The dilema is that intex filters are to small for the job that needs done especially in your case now that you have the dreaded green monster
your solution is to first get it cleared up
shock your pool with 2 gallons of liquid chlorine and then filter filter filter
You will need to brush the dead algea and vaccum once or twice a day for a couple of days and you must clean that cartridge 3-4 times a day with the garden hose
you will be surprised how much green it will trap
once pool starts to clear and the chlorine level starts to come back down from Mars you can start using your generator again.
you will need to find the amount of time thatorks for you but 3-4 hours will not cut it in the hot weeks
Chlorine consumption is due to #of bathers, heat ,sun, rain so any given day will dictate a different amount of generation needed keep it high so you do not get algea again about 3.0
you also got algea because you were not stiring up the pool enough you again need to filter filter filter every day
