Intex Saltwater System NO FLOW error

Code 90 low flow error. Finally found what the problem was on my 8110. Would turn on system and approx 30 seconds later 90 error code would appear. Traced it to the connection on the flow switch connector. Took some small needle nose pliers and carefully squeezed the female metal connections inside the rubber cord connector on the cable side so they would make a tighter fit. I was able to get the pliers in between the rubber socket and the metal crimp connector to avoid possible damage to the rubber seal. So far so good. Hope this helps someone.

If it continues to show 90, UPEND THE SALTWATER PUMP- IE TIP IT BACKWARDS - LEAVE UNTIL all air bubbles have gone out of it. THIS WORKED FOR ME after loads of tries - my son told me to do this, he is an engineer, he said gravity was causing the bubbles to run through the lock, causing "90" show. THIS WORKS, TRY IT!!!PASS ON TO ALL, I have sent this message before.

I had problems with system showing 90 flow error etc.
Have now found how to fix it.
TIP the pump unit backwards so the base is face outwards. Gravity then causes the air bubbles to 'miss' the sensor unit.
Once the pump is working OK with no 90 code showing, tip it back up the correct way again so its standing on its base.
I couldn't get my saltwater pump working correctly till I did that - since then I've had NO PROBLEMS at all, the water is kept absolutely crystal clear etc, saves me loads of work.

My system kept giving me the code 90 last year too and we had to buy a stronger pump/filter to push the water through. After that it worked great all year. This year it started off giving me the code 90 again, turns out a little plastic tube had come loose from somewhere and was preventing the sensor from being pushed up all the way. I removed it..and it works fine..still not sure what that little white piece of tube was for, or where it came from?

I have the same problem - I have done all troubleshooting and still low flow.

I'm in the same boat. Ended up replacing the small cartridge filter pump that came with my 4'x18' EasySet with a sand filter pushing 30gpm. The flap goes up when the filter is running as it should, but I am still getting error 90 on the screen after about 10 seconds. Air seems to keep getting into my SWG too. I tip it up to get the trapped air out, but the air comes back. I tried keeping it level, keeping it tipped up to help the bubbles move along, but still nothing. Haven't tried cleaning it yet. It is only about a week old, but I was using it with the old factory pump and some pretty dirty water. I'm hoping cleaning it works because I'm about ready to flip out!

Same thing happened to me and I had the cylinder reversed. Check your arrows!

still get same issue. turn it on for 60 sec then throws a error code of low flow. any one figured out how to by pass the sensor or another solution ?
