    Salt generator problem

    image.jpg

    Just plugged in my Intex 8110 SWG no power GFCI wouldn't even reset. I have 7110 Intex SWG for spear parts is it possible to switch out the transformer with the 8110. I notice that the 8110 transformer casing is a little taller than the 7110.

    Re: Salt generator problem

    I am assuming it will reset without it being plugged in?

    Re: Salt generator problem

    I would say probably yes. It is unlikely that they would spec different voltage. Are there any voltage or amperage specs on anything?

    Re: Salt generator problem

    if the gfci receptacle will not reset with nothing plugged into it, it is faulty and must be replaced.

    Ok, so editing is apparently not my strong suit, lol. I hate it when equipment comes with those on the cord, you have no way of verifying if the equipment is bleeding current to ground or if the gfci is bad (which can happen, especially since they aren't the highest of quality). I poked around on the intex site and they dont even list the power supply as a replacement part. The manual says the 8110 uses almost twice the current of the 7110 so basically you probably cant swap them.

    Dang, that's not good. Swapping them isn't going to work. Time for some bleach!

    Salt generator problem

    I finally decided to replace the plug on my 8810 and it works fine now. I cut out the old cord and replaced it with another that I had on older unit
