I have a 4th season IC60 that worked fine last year. This year at start up it read low salt (2900ppm) added salt nothing changed but all other readings were fine. Recently the cell now has solid red light for flow and cell and salt level lights flash back and forth. I removed the cell to inspect and noticed a lot of spring debri on the cells ect. Removed and also preformed an acid wash. Now the cell reads zero salt and all lights are the same.
Just to add it seems as though my filter has some holes in it so some debri was going through the cell. I've found the holes in the filter and fixed (sort of). Did a full clean of both filter and swg again started up and same light show again. Checked cell again and it's clear. Also have the pump running on 3300rpm so there is plenty of flow through the cell.
Pool company suggest getting a new flow switch.
Of course I have a big pool party here in 5 days and a cloudy pool.
Anyone have any recommendations? Is it a bad cell or just the flow switch? Suggestions?
Thanks in advance you guys are great.
