My saltwater pool filter has a problem. You start it up and it states "low flow" and shuts back off.

Got the new sand filter saltwater system combo. First unit was dead out of the box. Replacement unit flashes 91, (low salt) withing seconds of starting. Has anyone lowered the salt calibration on this unit? Resistor labeling and controls are different in this unit than the 8110.

We have the Krystal Clear Saltwater System Model CS8110. It isn't turning on. There is no pump on this unit...it connects to our pump. Any suggestions for repair on this unit? It is a year old and was functioning fine. No flood or unusual occurrences to explain a problem.

if the system is saying low flow,the pump isn't pushing the water hard enough through the salt system.Make sure you keep the filter clean.If this doesn't correct the problem you'll need a larger pump!

I have the same system,similar problem it powers on and stays on for about 1 minute with th green light,it then shuts off and the service light comes on.These things aparently have a lot of issues.If it's less than 2 years old call Intex and they will send you a new one.You will need the receipt when you call.I faxed mine to them.

This is my second season using the index salt water system. First year no problem!
Open pool this year on May 15th and have had no problems until Aug 1st !
Keep getting a Low salt light. Have tested water serveral times! salt content is fine! Have cleaned the unit as per owner manual monthly with vingar. Currently, water is clear and nice but I cannot get the unit to run because it switches from green light working to red light low salt after just a few minutes when unit is turn on. How do I resolve the red light issue?

NeedHelp wrote:Remove 4 screws and lift the electronic cove off to the right side. In the left rear will be the pump relay circuit board, this board carries high and low voltage. The black mini pump relay is controlled by low voltage and switches high voltage to run the pump and the high voltage pump wire is a white wire plugged onto the relay board. Obtain a duel spade push on adapter that will allow 2 wires to be plugged onto 1 spade. With the power off, unplug the white pump wire from the relay, just to the left on this board is primary high voltage, 2 white, 2 black and several green grounds. Remove 1 of the white power wires and push on the new duel spade connector, then plug both white wires back onto this connector. Plug in or power up the system to verify the pump runs, and re-secure the cover.
This modification will allow the pump to run independently from the chlorination time cycle and only stop when you shut down the system when you are through using the pool each day. It made no sense for Intex to turn the pump off after the chlorination cycle stopped. This would cause extra programming to run the pump only each day. Intex’s Support states that a pools filter pump should run each day for extended period of time for the best water quality.
I have a master GFI switch on my patio, each day I use the pool I flip the switch on, the pump comes on, the chlorination cycle begins, after 3 hours the chlorination cycle stops and the pump runs continually until I’m through using the pool for the day and flip the switch off. This allows for no reprogramming for pump run only each day. What was Intex thinking on this model?


Needhelp or anyone: I have a Combo unit(pump+chlorinator+sand filter all in one unit).Do you know if the guts for this setup: CS15110 is anything like the stand alone unit you wrote about. As my pump won't run and Chlorinate at the same time. The service light comes on 2-3 mins. after startup and the pump stops running. I can still hear what sounds like the fan running but readout goes blank and service light comes on. The pump will run if I set the system to run pump only with no SWC just filtration.
Any light(no pun intended) you could shed would be greatly appreciated.
If you would want to you could e-mail or PM me.
Thanks, Jerry

bigcmcar< I had the same problem( on a CS15110 system) and had to replace the titanium element(SWG), after that the system worked fine.
You can check continuity(with an Ohm meter) from the plates to one of the pins on the connector, you will probably find one or two of the plates is/are no longer connected electrically. On my system the SWG is removable so it's easy to test. Hope you can get access to the plates. All you have to do is touch the edge of the plate and one of the pins for the connector, be sure to try both pins just to be sure.
If your system is less than two years old and you still have the receipt, you can call Intex and ask for a replacement under warranty.
