  • Easy to operate
  • Intex saltwater pool system eliminates packaged chlorine
  • Dramatically improves swimming comfort
  • Intex Krystal Clear saltwater system works with any above-ground pool filter that can pump 700 gallons per hour or more
  • Auto timer turns unit off after sanitation cycle is finished
  • The Intex Krystal Clear Saltwater Water Sanitizing System has a self-cleaning cycle that further reduces your maintenance time
  • Saltwater pool sanitizing system has a required flow rate of between 700 and 4000 GPH

The Intex Krystal Clear Saltwater Water Sanitizing System can be added to your above ground pool, regardless of its make. It can provide fresh, clean water with minimal effort and maintenance. This automated Intex Krystal Clear saltwater system uses inexpensive, all-natural salt to constantly maintain your pool's water in a fresh, clean, sparkling condition. And because salt does not evaporate, you don't have to continually add salt as you do with chlorine.

But does it feel like ocean water? Not at all! Because of the low salt level (one-tenth as much as ocean saltwater), this saltwater pool sanitizing system leaves your pool water feeling fresh, clean, and soft . This means that your skin, eyes, and clothes feel fresh and clean, as well. So, when you want to spend more time enjoying your pool and less time maintaining it, try the Intex saltwater pool sanitizing system.

Ok so we have purchased the Intex 20' by 48" deep ultra metal frame pool. We are considering purchasing this pump to use with the one that's with the pool, as we hate messing with chemicals. Now with the salt...do you just dump it in the pool water all at once? We would have to get the salt from a local pool/spa dealer as the walmart here doesn't carry it. Someone please explain how this works.

  • A. I have the same pool. I just walked around the pool, pouring as I went. I used 120 pounds. They recommend you wait 24 hours after you add the salt before you get in. Because I used cyanuric acid, I used the pool sweeper to help stir for a while so the chemicals and salt didn't clump up.

  • A. All you do is poor the salt directly into the pool, then hook up the salt-water system behind your filter system. I set mine to automatically run the filter and salt-water system overnight and have no issues.

  • A. You don't want to get the salt that you put on your driveway in winter--you want to use the salt that people use in a home water softener. And yes, you do just dump the salt into the pool, but you'll want to check the instructions that came with the filter to check on how much salt. Our salt filter lets us know when the salt is low, so I usually add a few cups of salt at a time and wait until the low salt light goes off. We love our salt filter.

I don't understand the other reviews that reflect negatively on this product. I have used my Krystal Clear Saltwater System for over two years. It paid for itself in the first summer alone. I now spend $30-$40 per year on salt compared to $30 per month on chlorine. I have the 24' diameter pool with a 2500 gph pump and the whole system works great. The water is soft and doesn't burn the eyes. The chlorine level is much easier to maintain. I now vacuum the pool and check the chlorine level and pH once a week. If I replaced my saltwater unit every year it would still be cheaper than chlorine.

We bought this product 2 years ago, and are opening our pool for the 3rd summer. This system works great. It is simple. No burning sensation for the kids. It never tastes salty, different than a regular pool, it actually makes the water feel soft. As long as your regular filter pump that all pools have stays maintained, this should work like a charm. You do need to dump in like 50-100 lbs of salt in the beginning of the season (~$15), but other than that, no mtce whatsoever! Recommend to anyone I know getting a pool.

So the saltwater system lasted one season, died the first day this season. In the meantime, the Saltwater System has gone from $139 to $199. This is approaching the cost of the pool!

The salt water filter kept showing we needed to add salt - when we called the company they said they would send us a new one - no questions asked.... when the new one was plugged in it worked 1 week before the salt sensor said to add more salt....we had just added salt. Never got the issue resolved they have been sitting in our garage, we used chlorine tablets the rest of the season. We now have 3 "new" pumps that we can't use! Will be trying to get our money back next. This item was purchased in June 2011 by the middle of July 2011 we were using chlorine tablets.
