    No It is NOT the (Intex) SWG Cell! No, it is not a "broken" (Intex) SWG unit. It's just a little corrosion.

    A "Low Salt" error causes Intex SWGs to shut down, and refuse to make chlorine. Mine gave me 3 such errors on successive nights. There are multiple videos purporting to "fix" the issue, by hot-wiring the metal-plate cell directly to the transformer, and bypassing the timer and all the...

    Pool Math dataset incomplete for "Intex" SWGs.

    The only pool-math listed SWG under "Intex" shows the "Krystal Clear" and lists it at .63 lbs / 24 hrs.' There are at least 2 "Krystal Clear" models, with model numbers on the front of these units. The "Model ECO6110" is the 0.63 lbs / 24 hrs, while the "Model ECO5110" is 0.24 lbs /24 hrs...

    SWG Only Putting Out 3ppm Free Chlorine

    I have a little Intex SWG, which has been fine for my small above-ground pool in prior years. It has a panel that can alert on multiple "alarm conditions", but none have been triggered. In the past week, even running the SWG for the maximum possible 12 hours that the pump runs each night has...

    Should My Sand Filter O-Ring With a Protrusion Be Installed like the letter "p" or the letter "d" ?

    I have an Intex Sand Filter Model SF90110T, and while I have never have problems before, I am now questioning my sanity. I changed the sand out, and the main O-Ring that runs under the lid with the multi-way valve is shaped like the lower case letter "b" - it has a fin that runs around the...

    Pool Math App - Suggestion on test results logging

    The "Weather" is added to each log entry made, which is of no practical use to me, but it would be nice if rainfall over some limit (perhaps 0.25 inches) was logged automatically by the app as an additional "Note". This makes a difference to those of us with SWGs, as we must gradually crank up...

    Pool Math App "Stuck" on 18 Days Ago

    The android pool math app does not seem to be working properly for me. It does log chemical additions, but the only test-kit readings it logged was the first set I entered, on first use of the app. It displays those readings as the "last test" readings. I cannot find any "reset" or "erase" to...

    Just Won a "Kokido Krill Automatic Pool Cleaner" Make An Offer!

    I entered a raffle, and won a Kokido Krill Automatic Pool Cleaner. It is an automatic pool vac with an integrated mesh bag to catch large leaves, and it is claimed to be for smaller pools, but it does need a minimum of 0.13 horsepower (roughly one raccoon power, I'd calculate). It is brand...

    Correct pH Comparator Doubts

    Ran out of R-014, so ordered another bottle. But, looking at various product photos, some R-014 bottle labels mention a "Residential" comparator, while others mention a "Sure-Check" comparator. Google thinks that the "Sure-Check" is the 9056, and "taylor residential comparator" does not point...

    pH not rising, despite addition of 20 Mule Team Borax?

    I've added 9oz of borax twice to my pool in an attempt to get pH up to 7.6, but I cannot seem to get the pH above the (minimal) 7.2 level. Due to acid rain, local sales of "pH Up" are brisk, so I decided to save a buck, and use 20 Mule Team instead. Readings as follows, fairly stable for a...

    "Pool Math" app misleading, or city water needs "more" Borax and CYA?

    I am not having any success in seeing any measurable (Talyor test chems) pH or CYA increases on a newly-filled pool Being a cautious sort, I want to see a testable change in the correct direction, rather than blindly toss in what might be "too much" of any chemical So, starting with a fill of...

    Intex ECO5110/6110 SWG - Mystery Symptom(s)

    So, got an above-ground Intex 9' x 18' x 52" ultra-frame pool with a Sand filter SF90110T, and an ECO5110 SWG. Aside from the pump being powered by what seems an anemic hamster with a torn ACL, all seemed well at first... but the SWG kept throwing "High Salt" (error code 92) and refusing to...

    New Pool, Added Salt, But Unexpetedly Low Initial Salt Readings

    I bought a small above-ground pool, 9 x 18 foot capacity 4545 gallons. It has a sand filter, and I provisioned an SWG, so I added salt to the water, as follows: 4545 gallons 38178 pounds water @ 8.4 lbs/gallon 115 pounds salt 0.003012206 fractional salt/water by weight 3012...
