HOW SANITIZER IS GENERATED
This product is specially designed for above ground pools. It will destroy the bacteria, oxidize
bather organics and control algae, which provide a safe, clean and comfortable swimming pool.
Common salt (sodium chloride) is made up of two elements, sodium and chlorine. During the
installation of your Saltwater System/Filter Pump, a measured quantity of salt is dissolved in the
pool water to make it slightly salty. The pool water flows through the saltwater system’s
electrolytic cell to produce HCLO. The HCLO dissolves in the water and instantly starts
destroying bacteria and algae. It also oxidizes all other organic materials.
HOW THE ELECTROCATALYTIC OXIDATION WORKS
The Electrocatalytic Oxidation (E.C.O.) is an Advanced Oxidation Processes (AOPs). When
direct current is applied to the electrocatalytic oxidation electrodes, water will be discharged to
generate “hydroxyl radicals”. The hydroxyl radical is a powerful oxidant, which oxidizes organic
contaminants, and destroys bacteria and algae. Hydroxyl radicals in combination with free
available chlorine provide the strongest and safest pool water sanitation.

STRAINER & PLUNGER VALVE SETUP
Please visit www.intexcorp.com for the latest instructional video on the
installation and operation of this product.
IMPORTANT
The Saltwater System/Filter Pump must be installed as the last piece of pool equipment
in the water return line to the pool. This location extends the life of the titanium plates.
Strainer & Plunger Valve Setup (small AGP)
The strainer grid prevents large objects from jamming and/or damaging the filter pump.
The plunger valve assembly prevents water from flowing into the filter pump while the
filter cartridge is being placed or cleaned. If your pool has an inflatable top ring, install the
strainer, nozzle and plunger valve before inflating the pool liner top ring. The parts
numbers here onward, refer to the parts depicted in the Parts List section of this manual.

SALTWATER SYSTEM/FILTER PUMP
Saltwater System/Filter Pump
1. Remove the Saltwater System/Filter Pump and hoses from the packaging.
2. Place the Saltwater System/Filter Pump in a location for hose (8) connections to the plunger valve assemblies.
NOTE: Some regional regulations may require the filter pump to be mounted on a
stationary platform. There are two mounting holes located in the pump base for this reason. Consult your local authorities for filter pump mounting requirements.
3. Grasp the two pump hoses (8) and connect the hose nuts to the Saltwater System/Filter Pump.
4. In a counter-clockwise motion unscrew the threaded filter housing collar (3) from the filter housing. Place it in a safe place.
5. The Saltwater System/Filter Pump is an airtight system. In a counter-clockwise motion turn both air release valves (1 & 7) 1 - 2 turns to open. DO NOT remove air release valves as water will expel with force if the motor is turned on and injury may occur.
6. Grasp and remove the filter housing cover (4). Check to see if a cartridge is inside the
housing. If yes, replace the cover, finger tighten the housing collar (3) back onto the filter housing.
7. Gently finger tighten the sediment release valve located at the bottom of the housing to be sure that water does not leak out.
8. When the pool is filled connect the hose from the electrolytic cell outlet to the highest strainer assembly. You will find the hose connection at the bottom of the plunger valve assembly. Use the hose nut to attach the hose.
9. Connect the second hose to the middle of the motor housing and to the remaining liner
connection.
IMPORTANT
To prevent air lock, open the lower plunger valve (connected inlet hose) first and
then the upper plunger valve (connected outlet hose). Open air release valves, lift
and lower the inlet hose until water starts to flow out of the air release valves, close
air release valves.

SALT & POOL WATER VOLUMES
• Which kind of salt to use:
Use only Sodium Chloride Salts
Use only sodium chloride (NaCl) salt that is at least 99.8% pure. It is also acceptable to use
water conditioning salt pellets (the compressed forms of evaporated salt). However, it will take
a longer time for them to dissolve. Do not use iodized or yellow (yellow prussiate of soda)
colored salt. Salt is added to the pool water and the electrolytic cell uses this salt to create the
sanitizer. The purer the salt the better the performance of the electrolytic cell.
• Optimum Salt Levels
The ideal salt level in the pool water is between 2500-3500 ppm (parts per million). The optimal
level is 3000 ppm.
A too low salt level will reduce the efficiency of the saltwater system and result in low sanitizer
production. A high salt level may generate a salty taste to the pool water (this may occur at a salt
level above 3500-4000ppm). Too high of a salt level may damage the power supply and cause
corrosion to pool metal fixtures and accessories. The Salt Table page of this manual, shows the
correct dosage of salt needed. The salt in the pool is constantly recycled. Salt loss occurs only
when pool water is physically removed from the pool. Salt is not lost due to evaporation.
• Adding Salt

6.
7.
Switch on the unit, then press and hold both
and
button for 5 seconds, the LED
flashes “FP”. The unit is now in a Filter pump working mode and switch the filter pump on to start the water circulation.
Keep the saltwater system turned off.
Determine the amount of salt to be added (see “Salt Table”).
Evenly spread the proper amount of salt around the inside perimeter of the pool.
Avoid clogging the filter by not adding salt through the skimmer.
Brush the pool bottom to speed up the dissolving process. Do not allow salt to pile up on the bottom of the pool. Run the filter pump 24 consecutive hours to thoroughly dissolve the salt.
After 24 hours and if all the salt is dissolved, turn on the Saltwater System, press
button until you hear a “beep”, code “00” flashing (see “System Operation” section steps 2 to 4) and set the saltwater system to desired operating time (see “Operating Time Table”).
• Removing Salt
If too much salt has been added, the unit will beep and display “code 92” (see “Alarm Codes”).
You will need to lower the salt concentration. The only way to do so, is to partially drain the pool
and refill it with fresh water. Drain and refill approximately 20% of the pool’s water until the “Code
92” disappears.

INTEX POOLS CYANURIC ACID TABLE
Cyanuric acid is a chemical that reduces the loss of chlorine in water due to ultraviolet rays.
To maintain the pool water clear and clean, and to maximize the performance of the device,
add cyanuric acid to the pool. We recommend that the cyanuric acid level be
maintained at approximately 1% of the salt, i.e. 100 Lbs (45 Kgs) salt x1% = 1 Lbs (0.45 Kgs)
cyanuric acid.
If the pool water is dirty, filthy or grimy, DO NOT add chlorine stabilizer (cyanuric acid) as
this will slowdown the sanitation time of the device. Under this condition you must BOOST
your pool water, refer to BOOST cycle steps. Once the pool water has been restored to clear
and clean conditions you may add cyanuric acid.

FILTER PUMP OPERATION
1. Make sure the unit is switched off. The switch is located on the control station.
2. Connect the power cord to a GFCI protected electrical outlet.
WARNING
Risk of electric shock. Connect this product only to a grounding type receptacle
protected by a ground-fault circuit interrupter (GFCI). Contact a qualified electrician if
you cannot verify that the receptacle is protected by a GFCI.
IMPORTANT
To prevent air lock, open the lower plunger valve (connected inlet hose) first and then
the upper plunger valve (connected outlet hose). Open air release valves, lift and lower
the inlet hose until water starts to flow out of the air release valves, close air release
valves.
3. Turn both plunger valve handles fully counter-clockwise until they stop. This opens the valve, allowing water to flow into the filter pump.
4. With water flowing into unit, the water pressure will allow the air trapped inside to escape
from the air release valves (1 & 7). When all the air has escaped water will flow out of the valves (1 & 7). When this occurs gently finger tighten the valves in a clockwise direction.
5. Turn on the switch. The filter pump is now filtering the water.
6. The green "Pump" light on the control panel will light up, that indicates the filter pump is
running.

SALTWATER SYSTEM OPERATION
1. Start up the unit:
Plug the power cord into the electrical outlet and test the GFCI/RCD (circuit breaker). Switch on the unit. With the Filter Pump turned “ON” and operating. The green "Pump" light on the control panel will be on
and flashing code “00” appears on the electronic control station’s LED, indicating that the unit is ready to be programmed. This is normal.
2. Set operating hours for Saltwater System:
With code “00” flashing, press
button to set the desired operating hours. See the “Operating Time Table” for the required operating hours related to each pool size. Pressing
will increase the time from 01 to 12 hours maximum. If you have selected too many hours keep pressing
to repeat the cycle. The built-in timer will now activate your Saltwater System, at the same time each day, for the number of hours you have set.
(1 to 12 hours max per cycle)
NOTE: The Saltwater System will not operate if the filter
pump is not operating.
3. Lock keypad controls:
­
With the desired hour value showing, press
button until you hear a “beep”. The green “WORKING” indicator on the control panel will light up within a few seconds to indicate that the saltwater system has started sanitizer production. Locking the control buttons into this setting pre
vents unauthorized changing of the operating cycle.
NOTE: If you forget to lock the keypad controls, the system will
automatically lock it and start working 1 minute later.
4.
Unlock & Readjust operating time if necessary:
The operating hours can be re-adjusted if necessary. Press
until you hear a “beep” to unlock the keypad and the current
programmed time will flash. Repeat steps 2 to 3.

system, i.e. if your saltwater system operating time is 2 hours, the boost
procedure will run 8 x 2 = 16 hours. After boost procedure has been completed, the system will
automatically switch to the normal working mode.
To bring back the initial automatic operating cycle setting
of the Saltwater System:
a) If the LED display shows “FP”, press the
button and the operating
hours set previously will begin flashing, press the
button again or
simply wait 1 minute, and the LED will stay illuminated. The Saltwater
System cycle repeats again.

4. If flushing with water does not remove the deposits, use a plastic brush to clean the surface and the hinge if necessary. Do not use a metal brush.
After the flow sensor has been inspected and cleaned, align the locator notch on the flow sensor to the connection ridge in the conduit. Now turn the collar in a clockwise motion,
tightening the sensor back into its position. Do not over tighten.
TITANIUM AND E.C.O. ELECTRODES CLEANING
The titanium electrode and E.C.O. electrodes have a self cleaning function incorporated into the
electronic control’s programming. In most cases this self cleaning action will keep the electrodes
working at optimum efficiency. If the pool water is hard (high mineral content) the electrodes may
require periodic manual cleaning. ­­­­­­To maintain maximum performance, we recommend that you
open and visually inspect the titanium and E.C.O. electrodes (4 & 5) monthly.
The following steps provide instructions on how to clean your cell.

HCLO - A very effective killer of algae and bacteria known as hypochlorous acid.
Free Chlorine - Is the sanitizer (HCLO) present in pool water.
Combined Chlorine - Is formed by the reaction of free Chlorine with ammonia wastes.
Result if too high - Sharp chlorinous odor, eye irritation.
pH - A value that indicates how acidic or basic a solution is.
Result if too low - Corroded metals, eye & skin irritation, destruction of total alkalinity.
Result if too high - Scale formation, cloudy water, shorter filter runs, eye & skin irritation, poor Chlorine efficiency.
Total Alkalinity - Indicates the degree of the water's resistance to change in pH. It
determines the speed and ease of pH change, so always adjust total alka
linity before adjusting the pH level.
Result if too low - Corroded metals, eye & skin irritation. Low alkalinity will cause the pH to be unstable. Any chemical added to the water will have an affect on pH.
Result if too high - Scale formation, cloudy water, eye & skin irritation, poor Chlorine efficiency.
Calcium Hardness - Refers to the amount of calcium and magnesium dissolved in the water.
Result if too high - Eye & skin irritation, difficulty balancing water and
poor chlorine efficiency. Scale will form and will
cause the water to become cloudy.
Stabilizer - Stabilizers extend the life of Chlorine in swimming pools.
(Cyanuric Acid)
• Do not add pool chemicals directly to the skimmer. This may damage the cell.
• Maintaining a high salt and sanitizer levels above recommended range can contribute to
corrosion of pool equipment.
• Check the expiry date of the test kit as the test results may be inaccurate if the kit is used after that date.
• If, due to heavy pool usage, it is required to increase the sanitizer level, then use a chemical based on Trichloro-s-triazinetrione or sodium dichloro-s-triazinetrione dihydrate.

GENERAL AQUATIC SAFETY
Water recreation is both fun and therapeutic. However, it involves inherent risks
of injury and death. To reduce your risk of injury, read and follow all product,
package and package insert warnings and instructions. Remember, however, that
product warnings, instructions and safety guidelines cover some common risks
of water recreation, but do not cover all risks and dangers.
For additional safeguards, also familiarize yourself with the following general
guidelines as well as guidelines provided by nationally recognized Safety
Organizations:
• Demand constant supervision. A competent adult should be appointed as a “lifeguard” or water watcher, especially when children are in and around the pool.
• Learn to swim.
• Take the time to learn CPR and first aid.
• Instruct anyone who is supervising pool users about potential pool hazards and about the use of protective devices such as locked doors, barriers, etc. • Instruct all pool users, including children what to do in case of an emergency.
• Always use common sense and good judgement when enjoying any water activity.
• Supervise, supervise, supervise.
