A great product, but READ THIS.....,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Intex Krystal Clear Saltwater System and Filter Pump (Lawn & Patio)
I bought this for a 16' by 42" Intex easy set pool. I got it to replace the tiny pump that came with the pool. With the old pump I spent hours and hours messing with chlorine, sanitizer, and algae. Couldn't leave the pool alone. The new pump couldn't be easier. Pour in 75 lbs of pool salt, turn it on and forget it. The water stays crystal clear, feels great on the skin, and I don't have to spend the summer working on the pool.
Update: There are many reviews that mention the "low salt" warning that won't go away no matter how much salt they put in. The same thing happened to mine. No matter how much I added, the light and alarm stayed on. Then I read the manual about how to clean the titanium and copper plates. I did it just like the directions said, and it was back to like new, running perfectly. Apparently if your water is hard, the deposits build up faster. Thanks for reading, hope this helps.

I have the same problem, I cleaned the system 2 times with vinegar and it still reads low salt. I know I have more than enough salt in the pool.5.6 reading on salt test strip.

Use a really thin piece of wood to push the accumulated salt out from between the titanium plates. Do this after filling the reaction tube with white vinegar and let it sit for about an hour. Flush it with high pressure water to get the tougher deposits. I usually have to do this about twice a season. Hope this helps. Matt

After using this pump/filter system for 2 years on a 16 foot Easy Set I've upgraded to a 16 foot by 48" Ultra Frame. It's about 5000 gallons instead of 3000. This system handles it with ease and is still working great.
