    » You may wish to add other chemicals to your pool water, depending on the local characteristics of your water supply. It may be desirable to further soften your water, or add clarifiers or algaecides. However, in many instances, additional chemicals are not needed. If you add other chemicals to the water, there will be no impact on the salt in your pool. Check your local pool supply stores who usually understand local water conditions, for further information.
    » Your pool can be easily emptied and stored in a safe place during the winter. However, many people choose to leave their pool up year round. In areas where freezing temperatures occur, there is risk of ice damage. It is recommended to drain, disassemble and store the pool in a safe place when temperatures drop below 32 degrees Fahrenheit. See "How To Drain Your Pool" section. Clean pool water thoroughly (If Easy Set Pool make sure the top ring is properly inflated). Remove the skimmer (if applicable) or any accessories attached to the threaded strainer connector. Replace strainer grid if necessary. Be sure all accessories parts are clean and completely dry before storage. Plug the Inlet and Outlet fitting from the inside of the pool with the plug provided (sizes 10' and 12'). Close the Inlet and Outlet Plunger Valve (15', 18', and 24'). Remove the ladder (if applicable) and store in a safe place. Be sure the ladder is completely dry before storage. Remove the hoses that connect the pump and filter to the pool. Add appropriate winter chemicals. Consult your local pool dealer as different regions vary greatly. Cover pool with Intex Pool Cover. IMPORTANT: INTEX POOL COVER IS NOT A SAFETY COVER. Clean and drain pump, filter housing and hoses. Remove and discard old filter cartridge (keep a spare cartridge available for next season). Bring pump and filter parts indoors and store in a safe and dry area, preferably heated. STORING POOL FOR WINTER After draining pool, dry pool liner completely (100%). Sprinkle talcum powder on liner to prevent vinyl from sticking together and to absorb any water you may have missed. Roll pool liner to avoid creases and relocate to storage area. Place it in original carton if you saved it. Keep all small parts together with filter pump, manual, and pool, and then place in an area that will remain at room temperature throughout the storage season.
    » The Saltwater System is able to work with small pools as long as the water flow rate of the filter pump meets the required minimum flow rate shown on the packaging and/or owner?s manual. Follow the owner's manual instructions to calculate the required initial amount of salt and operating hours for small pools. Always check the chlorine level in the water before entering the pool with the 3-way test strips included.
    » Yes, in some cases certain types of hardy grass such as Bermuda or St. Augustine can grow through the liner. Before setting up your pool, it is recommended that you clear the area of these types of hardy grasses. INTEX will not be held responsible for grasses that may grow through the ground cloth and / or pool liner, as this is not a manufacturing defect. A ground cloth or tarp may be helpful in preventing this from occurring.
    » Water condition varies from country to country, states, region, and within specific zones and areas. In some regions the water could be "hard water", this is because the water contains excessive minerals, such as calcium and magnesium, thus causing the water to adopt a milky color. Check your local pool supply store for advice on water treatment and balance.
    » Code “93” is displayed when the programmed cycle ends and indicates that the system is in stand-by/power-saving mode. If you’d like to interrupt the programmed cycle and start the system, you may simply set the operation hours according to the manual and the system will re-start, or wait for 24 hours for the system to automatically turn itself back on and start its daily running cycle.
    » 25 pounds per 1,000 gallons or 3 kg per 1,000 liters of water. This level is one-tenth of the level of salt in the ocean, so you will not see, taste, or feel the salt in your pool. In addition, although water evaporates and has to be added to your pool, salt does not evaporate. So unless you spill water out of your pool, once you have the right level of salt in your pool, you never have to add any more. Just add water when it evaporates, and the salt level will remain the same.
    » The INTEX Saltwater Systems work very quickly, and will immediately begin eliminating bacteria and algae from pool water. However, the exact amount of time needed to transform dirty, dangerous pool water to safe, clean, clear, fresh pool water will depend on a number of factors including how dirty the pool water is to start with, the size of the pool, and the temperature of the outside air. Usually, the saltwater system will clear "green" water in 5 days. If the pool remains “green” after 5 days, please check the chlorine concentration in the pool water, increase the operation hours or shock the pool water if necessary.
    » The Saltwater System should be run every day, just as the filter pump should be run everyday. The length of time that the Saltwater System should run will depend on your local conditions, including temperature, rainfall, size of pool, and number of swimmers using the pool. See Owner's Manual for operating time table list.
    » Use only sodium chloride (NaCl) salt that is at least 99.8% pure. In models 8110/CS8110, 8220/CS8220, 8230/CS8230, 8111/CS8111, 8221/CS8221, 8231/CS8231, CS15110, CS15220, CS15230, CS20110, CS20220, CS20230 (NOT IN MODELS 6110, 6220), It is also acceptable to use water conditioning salt pellets (the compressed forms of evaporated salt), but it will take longer for these to dissolve. Do not use iodized or yellow (yellow prussiate of soda) colored salt. The purer the salt, the better is the performance of the electrolytic cell. INTEX does not recommend a certain brand of salt, however, salt can be purchased at pool stores, hardware stores, home supply stores, and some super markets.
    » It is possible to run the system for a longer period of time than is necessary. However, because chlorine is unstable and dissipates over time due to UV light exposure (which is why pool owners must constantly go to the store, constantly purchase, and continually add standard chlorine to their pools), if you happen to run your Saltwater System too long, you can simply begin running it for a shorter period the next day, and your pool will be fine. The best way to determine the optimal length of time to operate your system is to experiment with different operating lengths of time, and to test the amount of chlorine in your pool using the chlorine test strips provided by INTEX. See Owner’s Manual for operating time table list.
    » The INTEX Saltwater System will work for all above ground pools as long as the pump meets the minimum flow rate requirement. Since the operating cycle can be set for different operating hours each day, the system will work with all pool sizes under virtually any operating conditions. In addition, the INTEX Saltwater Systems come with hose adaptors, so they can be used with all standard-size pool hoses and fittings.
    » The INTEX Saltwater Systems are designed to operate with a minimum amount of maintenance, however, some steps are necessary for better performance: a). Check and clean the filter cartridge of the filter pump regularly, replace it if necessary. b). Inspect the electrolytic cell and the cell cover every month for scales. , You can clean it with kitchen grade vinegar. See Owner’s Manual for cell cleaning instruction. It might require more frequent inspection in a hard water region. c). Check and clean the flow sensor regularly. d). Maintain the proper water chemistry, especially the pH and total alkalinity.
    » Yes, it'll not affect the performance of Saltwater Systems.
    » Due to various local, state, national and international standards, do not operate the device when pool is in use and/or occupied.
    » Code “88” in Model 56601 and 56611 Intex Saltwater System/Combo, and code “00” in Model 54601 and 54611 Intex Saltwater System with Copper Ionization/Combo indicates that the saltwater system is ready to be programmed. Simply input the desired daily operating hours according to the owner’s manual and the system will start working.
    » There are several things you may need to check and do: Ensure the pool pump is on and running. Ensure the plunger valves on the pool (if any) are opened.  Ensure the filter cartridge, cell and debris screen are clean from debris and dirt.  Ensure the flow sensor (especially the hinge) is clean. See Owner’s Manual. Release all trapped air (if any) in the circulation line hose.  Check the direction of water inlet and water outlet hose. Reverse the hoses if incorrectly connected.  Check if the flow sensor is loose or not connected properly. If not, please plug the flow sensor firmly into the flow sensor receptacle.  If code 90 still appears despite above steps, there might be a flow sensor failure. Please contact INTEX Service Center for replacement. NOTE: Always turn the power off and disconnect power cord before cleaning and servicing.
    » Yes. The Intex Saltwater Systems come with standard hoses and adaptors that will enable you to fit your Saltwater System to your INTEX above ground pool filter system. (Pump capacity: model 8110/8220/8230: 700gph (2650Lph) ~ 4000gph (15140Lph); model 6110/6220: 500gph (1893Lph) ~ 3000gph (11355Lph))
    » Yes
    » Empty the pool, use a soft brush, mild detergent and water to remove algae stains from the pool liner. Thoroughly rinse and dry before refilling or storage.
    » The device generates very small amount of copper ions when operated according to the owner’s manual. The only way to get the copper level extremely high is to “boost” the pool more than 10 times continuously. It is possible for copper levels to get too high, but highly unlikely. The Saltwater System generates a maximum chlorine output of 12 grams/hr (equivalent to 0.6-1.5ppm concentration), and a max copper output of 0.36 g/h (equivalent to 0.1-0.2ppm concentration). The recommended copper level for drinking water ranges from 1 to 2 mg/liter (1-2 ppm). There are no known negative effects to high copper ion levels other than the potential for light-colored hair to become discolored. If this happens, use a shampoo containing “chelating” agents or wear a swim cap to protect the hair.
    » There are several things you may need to check and do: Test the salt level first with Test Kit, and add salt as needed. Remove the electrolytic cell for inspection and clean it if necessary. If code 91 still appears despite the above steps, there might be a possible electrolytic cell failure. Please contact INTEX Service Center, and replace the cell if needed. NOTE: Always turn the power off and disconnect power cord before cleaning and servicing.

    » A PVC or silicon based glue for repairing camping mats, tents, shoes, inflatable boats, etc are suitable for INTEX pools.
    » The INTEX Saltwater System will provide you with a number of important benefits: First, the advantage of not having to use traditional packaged chlorine: Traditional packaged chlorine is a dangerous, unstable, hazardous chemical. The INTEX Saltwater System eliminates the problem by using salt, a natural substance, to electrolyze chlorine into the water. Second, natural softened pool water: the level of salt in the pool water is so low that it is not noticeable. There is no salty taste, smell, or cloudiness in the water. However, there is enough salt in the water to provide a softening effect, just as homeowners often add salt to the water in their homes via water softeners to produce soft, soothing water. Traditional packaged chlorine must be added to pool water frequently because it constantly degrades under sunlight and with use of the pool. This means that the pool owner has the constant expense, aggravation, and danger of buying, transporting, and adding packaged chlorine to their pool water. In addition, they frequently end up storing packaged chlorine in and around their home and garage, which might be a danger to family members. An INTEX Saltwater System eliminates these problems and dangers. Unlike traditional packaged chlorine, the salt mixes with the water once and does not have to be constantly replaced. Each time the salt passes through the INTEX saltwater system's electrolytic cell, it is re-energized into natural chlorine, which is reconverted into bacteria and algae destroying agents each time it passes through the electrolytic cell.
    » Yes, the Intex Saltwater System will work in all water conditions. However, you may find it desirable to treat your water (just as you would if it was being used in your house), if it is hard or has high levels of calcium, etc. Calcium can form white scale on the titanium plates in the electrolytic cell, thus requiring more frequent cleaning. Other than more frequent cleaning, it will not affect the ability of your Intex Saltwater System to perform its functions.
    » The Saltwater System generates a small amount of copper ions during its daily chlorine production. The copper ion output during normal operating production is about 3% of the copper produced from the “Boost” cycle.
    » When the “Boost” button is pressed, the LED screen will show code “80”. This will boost the copper ion production in order to reach the required level per owner’s manual. To cancel the boost cycle, press and hold the “Boost” button for 5 seconds until the indicator is off.
    » The amount of salt you will need to add to your pool will depend on how much pool water is lost. Salt should be added to the pool at the rate of 25 pounds per 1,000 gallons or 3 kg per 1,000 liters. Since this may be tough to judge, the best method to determine how much salt to add is to use salt level test strips, which are widely available at pool stores. See Owner's Manual for salt table list.
    » Use INTEX 3-WAY Test Strips to check. With the device running, dip the 3-way test strip just in front of the water inlet (water returning back into the pool) inside the pool, and check the chlorine level on the bottle’s color scale. Also, you can verify if the unit is producing chlorine if there are small bubbles being released from the inlet as the unit runs. Oxygen and hydrogen bubbles are released as the unit produces chlorine and they are not present when the unit is off.
    » Chlorine output can be increased by: a) Increasing the Saltwater System’s operating time per day. b) Increasing the salt content in the pool water or in the saltwater tank (depending on which INTEX saltwater system is being used) to the appropriate level. Test the salt level with a saltwater Test Kit, and adjust as needed. c.) Removing the cell for inspection, and cleaning it if necessary.
    » Yes. However, to ensure that there is nothing obstructing the water flow to the pump, skimmer, or Saltwater System, it is a good idea to visually check the pool before turning on any equipment, including the Saltwater System.
    » Salt is added directly to the pool water at the rate of 25 pounds per 1,000 gallons or 3 kg per 1,000 liters of water. Salt comes in 10 to 30 kg bags, and is available at most home supply, pool supply, plumbing supply, and even many grocery stores. Do not use iodized salt. See Owner's Manual. Note: Do not add salt directly into the surface skimmer.
    » If a product is purchased directly from Intex www.intexcorp.com and it is found to be defective within 90 days of purchase, call Intex Consumer Service and an Intex agent will initiate a claim for the defective product. Once the claim is processed and approved the replacement is shipped within two business days. For a second replacement within the initial 90 day service period, Intex requires that a claim be filed for defective parts and that the defective item be returned at the consumer’s expense. Call (800) 234-6839 for further assistance and information.
    » The salt will have no effect on the vinyl. In fact, because the salt and the chlorine produced by the Intex Saltwater System are much gentler than standard chlorine, it may be easier on the vinyl than standard pool water treated with standard chlorine chemicals.
    » No. The only replaceable part in the Saltwater Systems is the electrolytic cell. The life of the cell varies depending on water conditions, pool usage, and operating time of the saltwater system. The INTEX Saltwater Systems are designed with a self-cleaning cycle to maximize the life of the electrolytic cell. Routine maintenance (as described in the Owner's Manual) will further lengthen the life of the electrolytic cell.
    » All INTEX pool sets can be purchased with a combination Saltwater System & pool filter system. In addition, a Saltwater System can be purchased separately for those pool owners who already have a pool filter system.
    » The following different types of saltwater systems are available:
    » Please see the following table or refer to the owner’s manual for more details.
    » The INTEX Saltwater System is an easy to use, automatic pool maintenance system. Pool owners no longer have to endure the expense and time of constant trips to the store and the dangers of handling and storing traditional packaged chlorine. Instead, the INTEX saltwater system uses only 100% all natural salt to generate a low level of natural chlorine and copper ions that destroy bacteria and algae and oxidize other organic materials to present you a fresh, clean, clear swimming pool. And the level of salt is so low, that swimmers do not even know that it is there! INTEX saltwater system will fit INTEX Above Ground pool up to 14,364 gallons / 54,368 Liters.
    » No. The Intex Saltwater System is designed to clean pool water; it is not a pool vacuum or a pool filter, or a pool water pump. To remove dirt from the bottom of the pool, a pool vacuum, either automatic or manual, will need to be used.
    » If alarm code 90 is displayed on your LED screen, this Code 90 means the flow sensor has detected low water flow or even no water flow within the unit.
    » No. If there is a need to run the filter pump for extra time "only" after the system finishes its work, the only way is to flick the main switch OFF & ON and the pump will start running. This will erase the automatic timer-cycle program set in the memory for the daily chlorine production. When the extra filtration hours are over, re-reprogram the unit following the owner's manual.
    » The amount of salt you will need to add to your pool will depend on how much pool water is lost. Salt should be added to the pool at the rate of 25 pounds per 1,000 gallons or 3 kg per 1,000 liters. Since this may be tough to judge, the best method to determine how much salt to add is to use salt level test strips, which are widely available at pool stores. See Owner’s Manual for salt table list.
    » If alarm code 91 is displayed on your LED screen, this Code 91 means a low salt level has been detected.
    » If copper level is above the recommended level (0.2ppm), drain about 20% of the pool water and add fresh water to decrease the copper ion concentration below 0.2ppm. You may need to add more salt to the water as well, as fresh water will decrease salt concentration. If it is not possible to drain pool water, the copper ion concentration may be lowered by adding aluminum sulfate: 1000 liters water need about 2g (1000 gals need 0.27 ounce) or aluminum potassium sulfate: 1000 liters water need about 3g (1000 gals need 0.4 ounce) added to the pool (following the direction on the container’s label). This may leave some fine residue deposit on the bottom of the pool which can then be removed with the deluxe vacuum skimmer. Reducing the operating time will not help since copper does not dissipate under UV light.
    » A few reasons may cause the LED not to appear: a) The system is in Power Saving Mode. Press either the unlock/lock button to view the last LED code. b) There may be no power supply. Check if the power cord is loose or not connected properly. Unplug the power cord, wait a few seconds and reconnect again. c) If no problem is found with the power supply, there may be a blown power fuse or LED (Light Emitting Diode) failure. Please contact INTEX Service Center for replacement.
    » There are several things you may need to check and do: Test the salt level first with Test Kit, and add salt as needed. Remove the electrolytic cell for inspection and clean it if necessary. If code 91 still appears despite the above steps, there might be a possible electrolytic cell failure. Please contact INTEX Service Center, and replace the cell if needed. NOTE: Always turn the power off and disconnect power cord before cleaning and servicing.
    » The chemical process is very simple. Salt and water are combined with a low-level electrical charge inside the Saltwater System to produce Sodium Hydroxide which converts to Hypochlorous Acid. Light, in the form of sunlight, converts the Hypochlorous Acid to Hydrochloric Acid, which then reverts back to salt and water. When copper and HClO (Hypochlorous acid)/ClO- are released into the water, these positive, surface active ions are a potent biocide. The disinfection action takes place when the positively charged copper ions form electrostatic bonds on negatively charged areas of the microorganism cell walls. This process means that the agents that eliminate bacteria and algae in the pool water are continuously produced in the Saltwater System, and when used up, revert back to plain, natural, salt and water in an ongoing cycle, never needing replacement. Even though the water in your pool will evaporate, only the water is absorbed into the air. The salt remains in your pool. So you will need to add water occasionally, but not salt. However, if water is removed or spilled out of your pool, obviously the salt in the water is also lost. So in this instance, depending on how much water is removed from the pool, some salt may have to be added. But under normal operating conditions, salt will not need to be added.
    » Insufficient chlorine output may happen due to: i) Insufficient operating hours of the chlorine generator unit, ii) Insufficient (less than 2000ppm) salt level in pool water, iii) Chlorine loss due to intense sunlight exposure, iv) The bather load (pool occupancy) has increased, v) Clogged or dirty electrolytic cell.
    » Yes. Turn the switch on and the filter pump starts filtering the water like a stand alone filter pump.
    » Code “93” is displayed when the cycle ends and indicates that the system is in stand-by/power-saving mode. If you’d like to interrupt the programmed cycle and start the system, you may simply set the operation hours according to the manual and the system will re-start working, or wait for 24 hours, the system will automatically turn itself back and start its daily running cycle.
    » Cyanuric acid (stabilizer) is a chemical that reduces the loss of chlorine in water due to ultraviolet rays. To maintain maximum chlorine performance, we recommend that the cyanuric acid level be maintained at approximately 0.3% of the salt, i.e. 100 Lbs (50 kg) salt x 0.3% = 0.3 Lbs (0.15 kg) cyanuric acid. Refer to the owner’s manual for detail.
    » Salt is added directly to the pool water at the rate of 25 pounds per 1,000 gallons or 3 kg per 1,000 liters of water. Salt comes in 10 to 30 kg bags, and is available at most home supply, pool supply, plumbing supply, and even many grocery stores. Do not use iodized salt. See Owner’s Manual. Note: Do not add salt directly into the wall mount surface skimmer.
    » It has a limited warranty of two (2) years from the date of the initial retail purchase. Keep your original sales receipt with Owner’s Manual, because proof of purchase will be required and must be accompanied with warranty claim.
    » Chlorine output can be increased by: a) Increasing the Intex Saltwater System’s operating time per day. b) Increasing the salt content in the pool water or in the saltwater tank (depending on which Intex Saltwater System is being used) to the appropriate level. Test the salt level with a saltwater Test Kit, and adjust as needed. c.) Removing the cell for inspection, and cleaning it if necessary.
    » To ensure water flows into the filter tank make sure both the inlet and outlet have no vacuum or wall mount surface skimmer attached, and open the pre-filter cover to purge air out of the system. Tighten the pre-filter cover back in place after the sand filter system is filled up with water.
    » Yes. INTEX Saltwater Systems create the same algae and bacteria eliminating agents in traditional packaged chlorine. However, traditional packaged chlorine requires additional chemical compounds to stabilize it and give it shelf life. These compounds end up in your pool water. They do not exist when an INTEX Saltwater System is used.
    » Orders are shipped within 2-3 business days once the order is placed. Orders will be shipped by regular mail or Fed EX (depending on the size of the order). Therefore, transit time will be determined based on your location and shipping method.

    » Yes. The INTEX Saltwater System will work for all above ground pools.
    » Insufficient chlorine output may happen due to: i) Insufficient operating hours of the chlorine generator unit, ii) Insufficient (less than 2000ppm) salt level in pool water, iii) Chlorine loss due to intense sunlight exposure, iv) The bather load (pool occupancy) has increased, v) Clogged or dirty electrolytic cell.
    » Brand new filter media is typically pre-washed and should not require extensive backwashing. However the transportation process may cause excessive abrasion and create impurities of fine particles in the filter media which require an extended backwash cycle at the initial setup startup. Backwash until clean, clear water runs through the sight glass or drain outlet port, about 3 minutes.
    » The iodine in iodized salt will produce a yellow tint to the pool water and cause the electrolytic cell to deteriorate.
    » When the chemical process takes place in the electrolytic cell, small amounts of gasses, such as oxygen and hydrogen are released into the water. This is safe and normal.
    » Yes, you can stop the timer by switching off your unit to clear the memory. Daily startup time can also be changed when you reset the operation time manually. See the Owner's Manual for more details.
    » No. The saltwater is completely safe for human swimming. Swallowing small amounts of salt water pool water though not recommended, is not harmful.
    » Yes. Intex will accept replacement part orders, accessory orders, and warranty questions from Canadian consumers. For replacements on items other than Above Ground Pools and specific airbeds, please refer back to the original place of purchase.

    » Because excessive calcium is present in pool water. You can drain about 20 to 25% of the pool water and add fresh water to decrease the calcium percentage. Visually inspect the electrolytic cell for scale build-up and clean the electrolytic cell if necessary.
    » A standard shipping and handling charge is calculated into every order, regardless of the shipping method.
    » See table for the preferred pool water chemistry.
    » No. The amount of salt in your pool is less than one tenth the level of salt in the ocean so you will not feel, taste, see, or smell any salt in your pool. What you will feel is soft, clean, clear, fresh water minus the chemical taste and smell that most standard chlorine pools contain.
    » Buy and use INTEX 3-WAY Test Strips. 3-Way Test Strips can test the "Free Chlorine", "pH" and "Total Alkalinity" levels at the same time.
    » The timer works automatically. After the operating time is set, the system will automatically turn itself back on in 24 hours (from the start time) to continue its daily chlorine production.
    » FP stands for Filter Pump. If the code FP is displayed on your LED screen, this means the pump is running alone without the saltwater system. Normally, if you press and hold both time and unlock buttons for 5 seconds until you hear a “beep”, the system will show “FP”. If you unlock the keypad controls, the LED display will come back to initial input hours and the saltwater system cycle repeats again.
    » Yes, it is the same product. The "Saltwater System" name describes more clearly the advantages of the product and eliminates confusion with traditional pool chemicals.
    » Salt alone does not generate the chlorine in your pool water. It is the combination of the salt in the water, plus the low level electrical charge that takes place in the titanium-coated electrolytic cell in the Saltwater System that produces the algae and bacteria eliminating agents that purify the pool water.
    » Code “94” indicates that no setting is input, please unlock the unit and set your desired operation time, then the system will start working.
    » No. Playground sand and sand from the beach or other natural sources will contain impurities and not be uniform in granular size. You must purchase the recommended type of sand for the Intex sand filter system. Sand is available from pool supply stores and many mass merchandisers. Using the incorrect type of sand will cause the system to malfunction and void it’s warranty.
    » Yes. Press and hold both up and down buttons for 5 seconds until you hear a “beep” and the LED display shows “FP”. The pump will be operating alone.
    » Allergic conditions are unique to the individual person, so it is not possible to answer this question for all people. However, because of the much lower level of chlorine in the water in a salt water pool, and the absence of other compounds associated with traditional packaged chlorine, many individuals who are allergic to traditional packaged chlorine, can safely swim in and enjoy a salt water pool maintained by a chlorine generator.
    » If alarm code 92 displayed on your LED screen, this Code 92 means a high salt level has been detected.
    » The most common media used is sand filtration. The recommended type is No. 20 grade silica sand, with specification of 0.45 to 0.85mm (0.018 to 0.033 inches) with a Uniformity Coefficient less than 1.75. Too fine of a grade of sand will clog too quickly, and too soft of a sand will break up and also cause clogging. Intex offers glass media as well, which is a better cleaning solution than sand. The particle size is 0.4 to 0.8mm.
    » When copper and HClO (Hypochlorous acid)/ClO- are released into the water, these positive, surface active ions form electrostatic bonds on negatively charged areas of microorganism cell walls. Copper ions and natural chlorine are a powerful algae-fighting combination: not only do they kill bacteria cells, but copper hinders bacteria’s reproduction process, preventing the problem before it starts. Copper ionization increases the efficiency of the saltwater system, requiring less energy and less chlorine output than a saltwater chlorinator alone.
    » If alarm code 91 is displayed on your LED screen, this Code 91 means a low salt level has been detected.
    » Common salt (sodium chlorine) is made up of two elements; sodium and chlorine. Salt water passes through the system’s electrolytic cell to produce natural chlorine, which is then dissolved instantly in the water. This continuous process destroys bacteria, algae, and oxidizes other organic materials in the pool.
    » Yes. The technology used in the INTEX Saltwater System has been used since 1974. In fact, over 90% of the pools in Australia use the same technology, and have been using it for decades. In the U.S., many in-ground pools use the same technology that INTEX uses -- both residential and commercial pools. However, in the past, salt water systems have typically cost many hundreds, even thousands, of dollars. INTEX, with its commitment to manufacturing and best value, has designed Saltwater Systems specifically for above ground pools, and backs them with a 2 year-long product warranty.
    » When low voltage direct current is applied to the copper electrode, copper ions are produced. The copper ions dissolve instantly in the water. Copper ions are an effective algaecide, which will prevent algae from growing in the pool.
    » Use the copper test strips provided. Copper test strips are also available in most pool supply stores.
    » Under normal operating conditions, residential filters should change the sand every 4 to 5 years. In areas with high air contaminants such as dust, leaves or any condition that requires frequent backwashing, the sand may need to be changed every 2 to 3 years.
    » 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 an electrolytic cell failure. Please contact INTEX Service Center, and replace the cell if needed. NOTE: Always turn the power off and disconnect power cord before cleaning and servicing.
    » Excessive use of pool chemicals can cause the color of the inside wall printing to fade away faster, like a heavy chlorinated public swimming will cause a bathing suit color to fade.
    » No, the system cannot be pre-programmed. However, since the system works on a 24 hour clock, you can set it to automatically start it at the same time each day.

Please contact INTEX Service Center, and replace the cell if needed. NOTE: Always turn the power off and disconnect power cord before cleaning and servicing.
    » No. Salt is a natural product, and will not produce any by-products, regardless of how long it is used. In fact, salt is much safer than the compounds used with traditional, packaged chlorine. Finally, the salt level in your pool water is so low that the water in your pool is technically considered fresh water.
    » Sand that is too fine will pass through the filter grid plate. Make sure only No. 20 grade Silica Sand (0.45 to 0.85 mm (0.018 to 0.033 inches) with a Uniformity Coefficient less than 1.75) is used. Also if the filter tank is not level, channeling can occur. If the sand bed is channeled, high water flow through the channeled area will break up the sand and allow it to return to the pool. Replace the sand with the correct type, size and amount, and ensure the filter tank is level. Refers to the owner’s manual for details.
    » When the chemical process takes place in the electrolytic cell, small amounts of gasses, such as oxygen and hydrogen are released into the water. This is safe and normal.
    » Code “00” indicates that the system is ready to be programmed. Simply input the desired daily operating hours according to the manual and the system will start working.
    » Buy and use INTEX 3-WAY Test Strips. 3-Way Test Strips can test the “Free Chlorine”, “pH” and “Total Alkalinity” levels at the same time.
    » Every 8 or 9 years under normal operating conditions.
    » The Saltwater System produces the sanitizing agents that are responsible for eliminating bacteria and algae without the additional compounds found in packaged or liquid chlorine.
