    Intex SWG GFCI tripping

    Hello,

    I have the latest Intex SWG and noticed my pool getting cloud and noticed that the GFCI on the plug in won't reset or anything. It's brand new, i've not even had it for a month. I've tried different outlets and those don't work either. Any suggestions?

    If you have a GFCI protected outlet available, cut the GFCI off of the Intex cord and replace it with a regular plug. Then plug it into your GFCI outlet.

    I had to do this with mine, but for another reason. I use an external timer to run my pump and SWG, and it tripped the GFCI on the pump every time it turned it on.

    I just put up a new Intex 16' x 48" pool with their SWG unit. My SWG GFI unit got wet when I was venting the filter canister next to SWG and it has quit working also. So I too, just cut it off and installed a regular male plug on the cord and swapped the receptacle out for a GFI type. They are supposed to be water proof, this showed me that they aren't.

    That's so crazy! I thought they were suppose to be. I ended up contacting Intex and they are sending me a new swg. Hopefully this one doesn't cause any problems!

    Glad to hear Intex is standing behind their products, my GFI unit had some strange screws holding it together so I did not bother taking it apart. Hopefully your replacement GFI won't have the same screws mine had...
