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.
That was the problem on my CS 15110 sand filter. I did the same thing and error code 90 disappeared!
just wrapped it a buch of times with sewing thread! no more beeping
We have a big problem with our intex krystal clear chlorinator. It has suddenly stopped working and we don't know why. Frustrating! No lights, no nothing. Not sure why! We have cleaned it and checked everything but to no avail. Don't understand what is happening at all!
I tried wiring the sensor up and it really does work. Just make sure that you physically check the water return in the pool to ensure you have good water pressure everyday.
Turn you salt pump in the opposite direction. The water is supposed to flow one direction only. Display reading should face outward opposite the pool.
I am having all of the same problems you all mention. I have been getting, altnernately, low flow and "salt too high" warnings. I know the salt isn't too high because I put below the rec. amount. Very frustrating..I have tried everything!

You saved my day and a lot of $$$, thank you

I cleaned it out and let the pump continue to run for a couple of minutes and the low flow light and beeping stopped. Then i screwed the filter back on and it's been good to go. Hope this helped somebody. On another note I noticed people talking about tilting the pump to let the air out. If you have an intex pump there should be a release valve on top and on the side of the pump that releases air in the pump
Your info really helped me! I also had a partial blockage on that screen. I will be cleaning that regularly from now on! Thank you.
Caution to all of you that are wiring/pegging the flow sensor. It really is there for a reason ... it shuts the thing off when there is no water flowing. Of course, it doesn't shut off like it should if the thing is tied up!
Now, the reason that is all so important is that passing electrical current through water is a process called electrolysis. If you consult any elementary chemistry book, you'll find that electrolysis can break water down into hydrogen and oxygen. The same chemistry book will also tell you that that is in fact an explosive mixture of gases! There needs to be enough flow to prevent these gases from building up ... so defeating this switch is a very real safety hazard!
One person did mention checking the flow every day ... but what if the filter plugs/pump dies/floaty-toy-blocks-intake, etc while you're down to the local McD's?? To everyone their own judgement, but I couldn't believe this thread went on this long with no one at least warning those that don't know the chemistry.
wired up the flap it worked!!! Thank you!!
Make sure the unit is level (or at a minimum raised on the exit flow slide) or the bubbles may build up and float stream in the direction of the flow sensor.
My white flap was backwards the circle should be facing out towards the pool and when the water is flowing it should face. FYI the circle is the raised bit on one side and on the other side you have the lip on the edge. the lip is supposed to catch the water better so that is lifts the white thing up as high as it will go so the sensor will detect it.

- My Pool: 15x48 Intex metal frame, 637R filter, 8110 Saltwater, set up on 1.5 inch HD foam. First pool ever, up and running 6-2017
I just bought my first above ground pool, a 15x48 intex with the 637R pump and 8110 saltwater used off craigslist.
I too was getting the low flow 90 error and a google search led me here.
I tried the flip it to let the air out trick three times. You could see the air bubbles before the flip, but it still came back. Then I tried slightly crimping the terminals on the flow sensor connector, and it still did it.
For me the final fix was making sure the output hose from the pump to the saltwater unit was level.
I had the pump and saltwater unit on a riser for testing and leak testing but the outflow hose on the pump dipped into a U shape off the side of the riser before going into the saltwater unit. Once I leveled that hose out, BINGO! Problem solved for me at least.
This worked for me. I glued the flow switch connector to the magnet so it could not drop.
