Pellet; The SWG( titanium element) is bad. Remove it and check continuity(with an Ohm meter) between connector pins and the edge of the plates. You will most likely find no electrical connection for one or more of the plates. If system is new call Intex and tell them of the condition, they should send a new one.

REMEDY FOR ALL OF YOU OUT THERE WITH SALTWATER PUMP SYSTEMS THAT WORKS FOR 2 MINS & THEN SHOW LED CODE "90" (MEANING LOW FLOW ETC).
I had this problem for 3 weeks till one of my sons checked the set up.
His explanation was that there are air bubbles in the tubes, which because of gravity, run through top of tube, and therefore run through the sensor which reads it as "air lock / low flow".
His remedy:
1. Ensure the 'normal' water pump is at a slightly higher level than the saltwater pump.
2. TIP UP THE SALTWATER PUMP SO THE BASE IS UPENDED AND FACING TOWARDS THE POOL.
Gravity then ensures that any air bubbles don't go through the tube through the sensor.
After the pool has been running for a while, gently tip it back so it is flat on its base again.

THIS WORKED FOR US! WE NOW HAVE CLEAR WATER IN THE POOL & NO HASSLE. I only put the pumps on for 4 hrs every 2 days or so (the pool is 10' diameter). Only maintenance is sweeping debris from bottom of pool.

Hope this solves the problem for some of you.

Did you ever figure this out - mine is doing the same thing.

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?

Very frustrated with this saltwater system. First one last year worked less than a week and was dead. Intex sent me a new one and worked fine the rest of the summer which was only about a month. This year it worked fine for a month now keeps saying low salt but the salt content is fine.

I have the Krystal Clear Saltwater System Model CS8110. It worked perfectly last year but this year I can not turn the unit on. Any suggestion will be greatly appreciated. Thank you

I've never put my hands on one of the Intex/Krystal Klear systems, but I've never heard much good about them. Seems you don't find many of them that last longer than a year or two.

One thing I can tell you about saltwater systems is you get what you pay for.

If you really want a decent salt system for your above ground pool, something you will use for the long term - I would suggest the Pool Pilot AG. It's a bit more expensive (600-700 bucks) but it's made by Auto Pilot, one of the best salt systems out there. Comes with a full 1 year warranty and pretty good tech support. If/when something goes wrong the unit is very easy to troubleshoot and get replacement parts for.

Got a new one and dead as a door knob as well.

Anyone have any advice
