I have the Hayward Swim Pure Plus system. I installed it about 2011 and it has worked great since then. Recently it developed a problem. At first the "check cell" light was coming on. I removed the cell and cleaned it per the instructions. The cell looks mostly OK. After I cleaned the cell it worked for about a month. Last week the unit went totally out.
On start-up, the no flow light flashes normally for about 20 seconds, and then goes out per normal. At first, the "generating" light would come on and stay on for 4-5 seconds. Now nothing at all happens. The display shows 3,000 parts salt. Cycling through the diagnostics screen it shows low voltage and no amps.
I pulled the cover and checked the voltage. It is getting 230V and the fuse is OK (I checked it with an ohm meter).
I then did a search and found these threads:
Aquarite Not generating - lights not on
Since I'm not very good at soldering and don't own a soldering iron I wanted to purchase the whole board for about $175. My only question is whether the board is bad or the cell. I did remove the panel display and clean the contacts and make sure that everything was OK.
Thanks for any suggestions.
