    How many gallons will this SWG service?

    It says Compupool but no model number?

    It looks like it goes to a Hayward Aquarite. What cell type is selected in the diagnostics?

    What are all of the diagnostics while operating?

    What is the actual salt level as tested by a Taylor K-1766?

    If it's equivalent to a t15 cell, it will make 23 oz of chlorine gas per day, which would provide about 4 ppm chlorine per day for a 40,000 gallon pool.

    Re: How many gallons will this SWG service?

    Thanks for the response.
    This is my neighbor's pool and between us, we don't know much....
    Anyway, the box is a Hayward Swim Pure.
    When I scroll through the diagnostics, it says:
    70
    30.8
    0.0
    100P
    0
    Al-0
    r 1.4
    1400

    The Inspect Cell light is ON
    The Check Salt is ON
    I have the Taylor Test Kit K1766 and it reads 2800
    The Cell is clear plastic and "looks" new inside.

    I'm lost......

    With a software revision of 1.4, that must be the equivalent of the T-15 cell (as described above).

    The salt reading is 1400ppm which is too low and thus the lights you seeing. Did you look in the cell and not see any scaling?
    You might just need to have the cell tested at the pool store as it very well could be bad if you independently test the salt level as 2800ppm.

    Re: How many gallons will this SWG service?

    With r1.4, it should be the equivalent of a t15, but it might be the wrong cell.

    Move the switch to off, wait 1 minute, move the switch to auto, scroll to instant salt (the number after 100p) and watch the number as the unit comes on. It should start high and go down the the salt reading. If the display reverts to the average salt level, press the diagnostic button to get back to instant salt. Instant salt has a negative sign in front to differentiate it from the average salt. Report the instant salt level. Also get the other diagnostics when generating.

    Also note that the Swimpure is the same as an aquarite. Hayward makes the same model under a bunch of different names. Swimpure, H40, mineral springs, naturesoft, smartpure etc.

    Re: How many gallons will this SWG service?

    Thanks everyone. I'll have to wait until tomorrow to re-check.
    Is it possible to tell the model by the physical size of the unit?

    Re: How many gallons will this SWG service?

    The cells are all the same physical size. The difference is in the total plate surface area. There are 13 plates in a T15 cell.

    The plates are 2.5" x 5-15/16". The total surface area is about 193 square inches (2.5 x 5.9 x 13) (Double if you count both sides of the plates).

    Your cell is clear but it's not obvious if you can check the length of the plates. You might be able to check if you remove the cell and measure the titanium plates from the inside going through the ends.

    The best way to check the cell is to check the instant salt against a known good salt test like the k-1766.

    If the voltage going to the cell is good and the instant salt consistently matches the known good test, then the cell is a T-15 equivalent and is working properly.

    If the voltage going to the cell is good and the instant salt is more than 800 ppm lower than the known good test, then the cell is either the wrong cell or it is worn out.

    Re: How many gallons will this SWG service?

    Thanks James.
    One more issue.
    The Inspect Cell and Generating lights are ON.
    I think the Inspect Cell light comes ON as a reminder after certain time period. In my neighbor's case, I believe that the unit was not being used but plugged in for several months. If so, can I reset the Inspect Cell light some how without unplumbing the unit?

    Why not go ahead and clean the cell now?

    It's always a good idea to use liquid chlorine/bleach to bring the level up then us the SWCG to maintain.

    Yep. Even my manual for my SWG says that.

    Don't acid clean the cell unless it needs it. If inspect cell is flashing, reset by holding the diagnostic button for five seconds.

    What are the current diagnostics?

    The 5 second re-set did the trick on the Inspect Light issue! Thanks

    Re: How many gallons will this SWG service?

    Ok, all looks good now. Is your current salt level (k-1766 ) matching the box reading?

    As long as the salt reading on the box matches the actual salt level in the pool, the cell is correct and working properly.
