FYI - bought new unit with same result! called Intex and they said to raise the salt! It was at 3500ppm?? so I added more and it started to work but kicked off on alarm but it appears to work at night (cooler), the transformer is really warm. Hope it stay's working.

It requires a little technical aptitude, but it works great. I'll never go back to chlorine tabs or granular. I'll post the fix based upon the positive responses.

Doesn't sound like he has one. I think it's kinda rude to proclaim "I have a fix!" but I wont post it until I get positive comments. :roll:

I keep getting a Code 91 and my cell is covered with scale, I've had to clean my cell every 4 days. My pool place (before this occurred) sold me some Calcium + because my water was not hard enough. Now I'm having to constantly clean my cell. What is going on and how do I fix this?

What kind of pool? What kind of surface? What is your Calcium Hardness test number?

I just spoke to the pool place, they said my Alkalinity and Ph were high (7.8 and 200) which is what is causing the scaling. My calcium is 280 which they said is good. They told me to add 1/4 gallon acid tonight and tomorrow night and keep an eye on the readings.

A ph of 7.8 isn't too terrible but a total alkalinity of 200 is really high. The acid will also bring down the ph. Resist pouring and PH-Up products in for a day or two as the ph will probably bounce back on it's own due to the high alkalinity. You might have to do the acid plug more than once.

What kind of pool do you have? In ground? Above ground? What is it made of? Vinyl liner? Cement? Fiberglass?
