Take a small paper clip and clean out the rinse jets on each of the rinse arms. When you use chlorine it sometimes causes the jets to become plugged up.

24' X 52" intex pool, I am having trouble with my cholinator not producing chlorine in the water. there are no signals or lights flashing. but when I test for the free chlorine on the strips is do

If you can remove your generator try and bench test it. Fill with pool water and do a chlorine test. Run the generator for a few minutes, unit should produce bubbles when the cells are turned on. Run another chlorine test and make sure it is higher than original test. You should also test your combined chlorines to make sure you don't have excess chloramines in the water. Also check for any buildup on the generator plates which should be acid washed, and verify salt concentration.

Hi, last month we bought an intex round pool (18' x 54") with sand pump and salt sanitizer. Within the last 2 days the water started turning green. It turns out my husband accidently set the pump...

You don't want to swim in water that has algae... 1st ...Make sure you have the correct amount of salt. See you manual for amount needed. Must set you pump timer first and sync your chlorinator between that time, if pump turns off before chlorinator cycle ends, you will get an "Low flow" alarm. Set you pump timer to run 12 hours and the chlorinator for 10 to 11 of those hours and should see results within 3 days or so. After that, If you live in an area that is hot, 10 hours pump and 8 to 9 chlorinator... Hope this helps...

The inside bottom of our CMA dishmachine is pitting and has a hole through it. It is supposed to be stainless steel. The company said it was because we had too much iron in our water? We had the water...

This is usually caused by a leak in the plastic chemical line on the sanitizer. Over time and it doesn't have to be long time for it to happen, the chlorine sanitizer drips on the stainless causing it to pit. Contact your chemical supplier to check this out; The sanitizer is corrosive to stainless when not mixed with water in the machine

Intex salt water chlorinator I added a higher flow pump and chlorine levels seem low no matter how many hours I run the chlorinator

your pump has nothing to do with chlorine generation.
You need to get a salt test kit that reads in #'s not colors.
Now get your salt to 3000ppm or as close to it as you can.
The amount of salt reccomended in the manual is just a starting point
any lower than 2800 and you will not produce enough sanitizer and over 3600 and your pool can go cloudy, taste bad, and rust metal parts

No chlorine registering; plates need cleaned every few days

The recommended amount of salt is just a guide> You say yours is ideal
would that be 3000ppm and are you using test strips for salt that are 3 reading or color reading
Go with # reading they are most accurate any lower than 2800ppm and you will not generate enough chlorine and could trigger low salt code any higher than 3500 and it will taste bad and could trigger high salt alarm

when adjusting salt you need to filter only for 24 hours before trying to generate chlorine

I have never cleaned my electro cell

other chemicals should include a non foaming algaecide once a week follow direction for your gallons of water
Also chlorine stabilizer once a month or so depending on conditions this helps hold the chlorine level

and a water clarifier this helps the minute particals clump together thus being possible for the paper filter to catch it.
The paper cartriges let to much small debris through that you cant see

The key to using an intex system is filter filter filter if you do not filter enough you will next go green and that is a nightmare

Have 2 filters so that while one is being used the other has been blasted out with a garden hose and drying An inserted dry filter works better than a freshly cleaned wet one
I have had the same 2 filters for this being my 4th season
I run mine 24/7 it is like keeping a 40 watt bulb on

Lx30c pumps sanitizer up to the inlet but fails test

It sounds like the pump is gummed up and needs to be removed, disassembled and cleaned.

Hobart 24 in. LXIC fails sanitizer tests. The sanitizer pump is pumping out about 4-5 ml per rinse when I remove the tube at the 90 degree tube fitting. According to specs it should be about 3 ml of 8.5%...

I thought it was designed for domestic bleach at 5.25%, and looking for a solution of 50 ppm of sanitizer and rinse water. Either the elbow is blocked, or the silicone tube in the pump has collapsed. Use rubber gloves and face protection when working on chemical tubing.
