Description

The Intex Krystal Clear Saltwater System combines a unique two-stage technology to sanitize pool water. First, an undetectable level of natural swimmer-safe chlorine is produced when natural salt is added to pool water and passes through a titanium electrolytic cell during the filtration process. The result is soft, fresh, clean water without the potential harsh side effects of packaged pool chemicals. Second, with the E.C.O. (electrocatalytic oxidation) process, water molecules are split into highly powerful oxidants which destroy organic contaminants such as bacteria and algae. The combination of these powerful oxidants with natural chlorine results in the strongest and safest pool water sanitation.This second process, unique to the Intex Saltwater System, provides consumers with an important benefit. The process of E.C.O. is so effective that the amount of natural chlorine needed and generated by the system is reduced by approximately 60%. This means that your customers not only get the great benefits of a saltwater system, but they enjoy it with much less chlorine than other saltwater systems generate! Max. pool size: 15,000 gal (56,800L). 110-120V with GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter). Requires a filter pump with a flow rate between 700-3,000 gph (2,650 - 11,355L/hr). Chlorine output: 12 g/hr. 24 hour auto-clock cycle.

  • Automatic maintenance
  • Connects to a filter pump with a flow rate between 700 - 3,000 gallons per hour (filter pump sold separately)
  • Enjoy clear, sparkling water

Popular FAQs

See All >
      Does the color of the printing on the inside of the pool wall fade away with time and does it pose any health risk issue?
      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.
      When will I receive my order?
      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.
      When placing an order to Canada, am I being charged U.S. or Canadian currency?
      U.S. currency.
      Can I give my P.O. Box for Fed EX orders?
      No, you must provide a physical address for Fed EX to deliver your package. Fed EX does not deliver to Post Office boxes, APO or PPO addresses.
      If the Intex Saltwater System runs too long, will it over chlorinate the pool?
      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.
      Will my pool water be salty?
      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.
      Does the Saltwater System prevent algae and bacteria from forming on the bottom and sides of the pool?
      Yes
      Why are INTEX Saltwater Systems better than other products on the market today?
      INTEX Saltwater Systems are better than other products on the market today because they provide the best value in Saltwater Systems. INTEX has become the world leader and the largest manufacturer of above ground pools in the world by providing people with high quality pools at an outstanding price. Our commitment to quality and customer service is second to none. INTEX is now bringing this same commitment of high quality and great value to chlorine generators, providing consumers with easy to use, well-designed machines backed by the best customer service organization in the industry and two years product warranty for manufacturing defects.
      Do I add salt to the pool or to the pump?
      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 my pool loses water, how do I know how much salt to replace? What happens if I add too much salt?
      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.
      How does the addition of salt to my pool generate chlorine?
      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.
      Does the stand-alone Saltwater System requires any cartridges as the pump does?
      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.
      Can I stop the timer or change the startup time?
      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.
      Can I pre-program the startup time like my VCR (Video Cassette Recorder)?
      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.
      Why is there no display on the LED screen? What should I do?
      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.
      What does code 90 mean?
      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.
      What should I do if code 90 appears?
      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.
      What does code 91 mean?
      If alarm code 91 is displayed on your LED screen, this Code 91 means a low salt level has been detected.
      What should I do if code 91 appears?
      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.
      What does code 92 mean?
      If alarm code 92 displayed on your LED screen, this Code 92 means a high salt level has been detected.
      What should I do if code 92 appears?
      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. see attachedment If code 92 still appears despite the above step, there might be a 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.
      92 alarm
      I have a small above ground pool, can I still use salt water system?
      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.
      I have a Saltwater System/filter pump combination unit (combo), can I run just the filter pump only after the chlorinator has finished without re-setting or erasing the chlorinator's programmed timer?
      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.
      What is the turn-around time on defective (Service Program) claims?
      Processing time is approximately 3 business days from the date we receive the product. It is then shipped by Fed EX Ground from Long Beach CA. Therefore, transit time will be determined by your location.
      How can I track my order?
      If your e-mail address was provided at the time the order was placed, and your order was shipped by Fed EX, you will receive an e-mail confirmation with the tracking number. You can then go to the Fed EX website to track the package.
      What is the return policy when product is purchased directly from Intex?
      30 Days from the date of delivery as stated on the shipping invoice (except items that come with a written warranty).
      When will I receive my order if I pay for Fed EX 2nd Day Shipping?
      It takes 2-3 business days to process the order and 2 additional business days in transit for Fed EX to ship. This is the fastest method of shipping that we offer. There is no next-day air service available. The package will be received within approximately 3-5 business days. All shipments to Canada will go by standard (ground) Fed EX or regular mail.
      If I make a purchase over the phone or Internet and want to return the item, will I be reimbursed for the shipping and handling charges?
      No. The shipping costs have already been incurred at your request and therefore are non-refundable.
      Is there a shipping and handling charge when I place an order?
      A standard shipping and handling charge is calculated into every order, regardless of the shipping method.
      Why has the name of the device been changed from Chlorine Generator to "Saltwater System"? Is it the same product?
      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.
      Why use the INTEX Saltwater System?
      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.
      How does the INTEX Saltwater System generates chlorine?
      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.
      Is the INTEX Saltwater System available for different sizes of pools?
      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.
      Do you need to use any other chemicals in the pool besides salt? What happens if you put other chemicals in the pool?
      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.
      How often do you run the INTEX Saltwater System?
      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.
      Can you adapt an older Intex Filter Pump to the Intex Saltwater System?
      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))
      What will happen if iodized salt is used?
      The iodine in iodized salt will produce a yellow tint to the pool water and cause the electrolytic cell to deteriorate.
      How does the salt affect the vinyl?
      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.
      Is the Intex Saltwater System capable of lifting dirt off the bottom of the pool?
      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.
      Will the Intex Saltwater System work even if I use well water? What if I have hard water?
      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.
      Will the salt produce any harmful by-products over long periods of time?
      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.
      Can you run the Intex Saltwater System with the pool cover on?
      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.
      Is it safe to swim in the pool while the Saltwater System is operating?
      Due to various local, state, national and international standards, do not operate the device when pool is in use and/or occupied.
      What if the saltwater is accidentally swallowed? Is it harmful in any way?
      No. The saltwater is completely safe for human swimming. Swallowing small amounts of salt water pool water though not recommended, is not harmful.
      Which pool sets come with the Saltwater System? Can it be purchased separately?
      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.
      Can grass grow through the ground cloth and / or pool liner?
      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.
      Will Intex accept Checks or Money Orders?
      No, payment can only be made using Visa, Master Card, Discover or American Express.
      Does Intex ship to Canada?
      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. To order replacement parts please call 800-234-6839 or go to www.intexcorp.com.
      If I am allergic to chlorine, can I still swim in the pool?
      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.
      Why sometimes is it called Chlorine Generator, since it doesn't actually produce chlorine in the traditional sense?
      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.
      Is the Saltwater System technology proven?
      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.
      Is the chlorine produced by a Saltwater System different than the standard liquid or granule chlorine used in most pools?
      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.
      What is the chemical process that takes place in an Intex Saltwater System?
      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.
      Why do I have insufficient chlorine output?
      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.
      How do I increase the chlorine output?
      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.
      Why did I find white flakes in the pool water?
      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.
      How can I test the chemical level in my pool?
      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.
      How do I verify if the Saltwater System is generating chlorine?
      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.
      Why are there tiny little bubbles in the water when the Saltwater System is running?
      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.
      My pool has a milky color, do I need to change the water or is it treatable?
      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.
      What is the best way to remove algae stains from the pool liner?
      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.
      Other than Intex Repair Kits (Item# 59632 or part#10114) what kind of glue do you recommend for Intex pools?
      A PVC or silicon based glue for repairing camping mats, tents, shoes, inflatable boats, etc are suitable for INTEX pools.
      Winterizing your Above Ground Pool
      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.
      I bought an AGP Set with a Saltwater System/filter pump combination (combo), I do not want to add salt because I do not want to use the chlorinator. Is it possible to run just the pump to filter the water at least?
      Yes. Turn the switch on and the filter pump starts filtering the water like a stand alone filter pump.
      Where can I purchase replacement parts?
      Most replacement parts for Intex products are available directly from Intex at www.intexstore.com or contact us direct at (800) 234-6839. We accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover only, no checks, money orders or C.O.D.s.

      What is the INTEX Saltwater System (Chlorine Generator)?
      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.

      The specifications of Intex Saltwater System
      What type of service is needed to maintain the Saltwater System's performance?
      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.

      Can I add pool chemicals to shock the pool water or to balance pool water chemistory?
      Yes, it'll not affect the performance of Saltwater Systems.
      How long does it take for the Intex Saltwater System to clear the "green" water from my pool?
      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.
      How does the timer work?
      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.
      How much salt should be used for my salt water system?
      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.

      What does code "88" mean? What should I do if code "88"/"00" appears?
      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.
      How does the INTEX Saltwater System generate copper ions?
      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.
      If the Intex Saltwater System runs too long, can copper levels get too high?
      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.
      How do I reduce the copper concentration in my pool to the recommended level?
      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.
      When the Intex Saltwater System is producing chlorine under daily operating conditions, will it also produce copper ions?
      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.
      How can chlorine last longer in my pool, if it automatically breaks down in sunlight?
      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.
      How do copper ions sanitize my pool? How do they work with chlorine?
      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.
      How can I test for copper levels?
      Use the copper test strips provided. Copper test strips are also available in most pool supply stores.
      What does code “94” mean? What should I do if code 94 appears?
      Code “94” indicates that no setting is input, please unlock the unit and set your desired operation time, then the system will start working.
      What is the preferred pool water chemistry reading?
      See table for the preferred pool water chemistry.
      Preferred Water Chemistry Reading
      What does code 80 mean? What should I do if code “80” appears?
      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.
      What does code 93 mean?
      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.
      Is the Intex Sand Filter Pump & Saltwater System available for different sizes of pools?
      Yes. The INTEX Saltwater System will work for all above ground pools.
      Does the Sand Filter Pump & Saltwater System includes hoses or other fittings to attach to an INTEX® swimming pool?
      Yes. It includes two hoses of 38mm (1.5in) diameter, two plunger valves fittings and two adaptors B to fit smaller size pools with 32mm (1.25in) diameter hose fittings. If used with other brands of swimming pools, additional fittings will be required.
      What type and size of media should I use with the INTEX Sand Filter & Saltwater system?
      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.
      How much sand does the INTEX Sand Filter & Saltwater system require?
      Please see the following table or refer to the owner’s manual for more details.
      Recommended quantity
      How do I verify if the pressure gauge is faulty?
      The pressure gauge should drop to zero “0” when the motor is turned off. If it is faulty contact your INTEX® Consumer Service Centre to replace it.
      Why is it necessary to backwash the filter media during the initial setup startup and how long I should backwash it?
      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.
      Can I use playground sand or sand from the beach in my Intex sand filter system?
      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.
      How often should I change the sand in my filter?
      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.
      How many functions does the INTEX Sand Filter Pump & Saltwater System control valve have and what are the functions?
      INTEX Sand Filter Pump & Saltwater System control valve has 6 functions and a neutral (N) position for long term storage or winterization. The 6 way valve functions are:
      Table of The 6 Way Valve Functions of INTEX Sand Filter Pump & Saltwater System
      What should I do if sand is returning to the pool during filtering operation?
      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.
      Water is present in the drain/waste outlet port or sediment transparent window, is this normal?
      This is an indication that the internal diverter gasket and/or O-ring of the 6-way valve is worn out or torn, and may need to be replaced. Please contact INTEX service station listed on your Owner’s Manual for replacement. (International)
      What is the warranty period of the INTEX Sand Filter Pump & Saltwater System?
      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.
      After loading the filter media into the tank and setting up everything, the water does not flow into the tank after opening the plunger valves (or removing the black hat-shape plugs) and setting the 6-way valve in filter mode?
      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.
      What type of salt should be used with the saltwater generators?
      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.
      Why do I have insufficient chlorine output?Insufficient chlorine output may happen due to:
      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.
      How do I increase the chlorine output?
      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.
      Why did I find white flakes in the pool water?
      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.
      How can I test the chemical level in my pool?
      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.
      Why are there tiny little bubbles in the water when the Intex Saltwater System is running?
      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.
      How do copper ions sanitize my pool? How do they work with chlorine?
      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.
      How can I test for copper levels?
      Use the copper test strips provided. Copper test strips are also available in most pool supply stores.
      Do I add salt to the pool or to the 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 wall mount surface skimmer.
      If my pool loses water, how do I know how much salt to replace? What happens if I add too much salt?
      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.
      How does the addition of salt to my pool generate chlorine?
      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 system that produces the algae and bacteria eliminating agents that purify the pool water.
      How does the timer work?
      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.
      Can I stop the timer or change the startup time?
      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.
      Can I pre-program the startup time like my VCR (Video Cassette Recorder)?
      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.
      What does code “00” mean? What should I do if code “00” appears?
      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.
      What does code 91 mean?
      If alarm code 91 is displayed on your LED screen, this Code 91 means a low salt level has been detected.
      What should I do if code 91 appears?
      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.
      What should I do if code 92 appears?
      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.
      What does code 93 mean?
      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.
      Can I run just the Intex filter pump only?
      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.
      What if I’ve received a replacement that is defective or incorrect?
      It is the consumer’s responsibility to notify Intex within 15 days of receiving a defective or incorrect replacement by calling (800) 234-6839.
      What is the meaning of FP?
      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.
      How often should the glass media be replaced?
      Every 8 or 9 years under normal operating conditions.
      Do you accept COD (Cash on Delivery) or check? What should I do if I do not have a credit card?
      No. Our system does not accept COD (Cash on delivery) or check. We only accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover credit cards. Pre-paid credit cards can be used if they are from one of these four companies.(for U.S & Canada only)
      Can I pick up the products from your warehouse in Long Beach? (for U.S & Canada only)

Great product.

I love this generator, I haven't had any problems so far and I've been running it for 2yrs now.
As long as you check water and vacuum once a week, you will love it as well.
