Not sure what you mean by 'the balloon'?

The reason you remove water is because water expands when it freezes. If anything was 'deflated' with water in it, then when the water froze, it wouldn't hurt it.

One thing you can also do, it add ethylene glycol antifreeze to the place where the water is. Use it undiluted from an auto-shop. You can also put some into your filter.

It means low salt level (below 2500 ppm). If E91 is shown do the following: 1) Test the salt level with a salt test kit. If a salt test kit is not available you can take a sample of the pool water to your local pool supply store.

I would suggest that you keep your salt level around 2,5 for chlorination, however to get the green pool sorted your pool needs to be shocked and would recommenced to get your pool's free chlorine level at least up to around 5 in order to shock the pool as normal free chlorine level should be 3

Hi my Intex hot tub spa is throwing an E90 code every time I try to turn on the filter and heating. What do I need to do to fix this?

A late answer but it might help future Intex impleller sufferers... they do not sell replacement parts and you won't find any impellers sold separately anywhere on the planet. I've had 1 Intex pool and 3 Intex filter pumps in 3 years. Last week the 3rd pump's impeller broke as well. I shan't buy their products again.

The E90 code on the Intex spa is due to a dirty water flow sensor. ... The black wire is plugged into a white wire, carefully unplug it and unscrew the sensor. Clean it good and blow out the hole it goes in. This will fix the code and you will be back in business

basically no use, unless you are setting it up and need to refer to a setting chart to insure it is reading in a specific range.

My bubbles button and filter button were not working. The two buttons got a little corroded inside the control panel. I sprayed a little deoxit contact cleaner spray on the board by the buttons and worked like charm!

A short term fix for this is to replace the small porcelain rod in the impeller with a 1/8"x 2 7/8" brass rod. I had some laying around from a project for my boat. I usually get it from Lowes in the hardware section. It's in the hobby drawer. It has to be these exact dimensions or it will not fit and will tear itself apart fast. There is a very detailed video on Youtube. "How to repair Intex PureSpa pump (Error 90) by Youtube user John Cornwell. Thank you, John!
I have looked at other more durable options like possibly using a high nickel alloy such as 4140 stainless. the less ferrous, the better.

I installed a new Intex ECO 8110 unit on my 15' above ground, steel sided pool. After about 10 hours of use I had the "code 92' high salt alert that shut the system down. I knew that my salinity wasn't high because the local Pinch A Penny pool store does free water analysis and i was given the okay just a week prior. We had also received a bit of rain in the interim so I knew that the alert was false.

Here is how I fixed the problem (so far).
1. Turn your unit off.
2. Disconnect the power cord from the outlet and wait for 2 minutes.
3. Unscrew the retaining nut at the electro-cell connector and unplug the connection.
4. Rotate the plug 180 degrees to reverse the polarity of the plug and re-connect to the electro-cell.
5. Reconnect the power cord to your receptacle.
6. Turn the unit on, wait for the green light to burn steady.
7. Monitor for the next 5-10 minutes.

My unit has worked flawlessly for 3 hours. If i receive another "code 92" alert i will repeat the procedure which will result in bringing the unit back to its original polarity.
