    Eco-Matic salt system not working

    I have an Eco-Matic "ESC 36" salt system

    probably about 11 yrs old - i've replaced the cell and was working fine then the actual unit/control box on wall stopped working properly. I get some lights when turned on (area showing #'s) but #'s are not all there AND no read out lights (2 small lights)

    pool store / maintenance people have told me about history of Ecomatic etc... and then tell me no one could fix it that it would need to be replaced with entire new system??? Of course and a high cost.

    Welcome to TFP Mike,

    I believe I remember reading this before, but if you can't find parts on the web, upgrade/replacement is likely the best thing for you. If this painful to do right now, you could always switch to another form of Chlorine like Bleach for the time being.
