    Low sal & Check Cell light

    I had salt reading of 2200 , added one bag reading went to 2300 , added another bag reading show 2500

    1. Cleaned the filter
    2. Cleaned the cell in water + muratic acid
    3. Did set the reading (Auto, OFF , 5 times , Super Chlorinate , auto)

    Now the display say 2500 as salt & Low salt & inspect cell light are flashing RED

    Any clue

    Note: Cell is about 4 yr old)

    The cell could be failing. Do you have a Taylor salt test kit to confirm salt level?

    What is your water temperature?? As the water temp effects the reading, I have experienced that issue in previous year. Check your cell manual and it will give you a minimum temp for a stable reading. I have a Pentair

    Intellichlor is notorious for having very poor temperature compensation for salt level readout. However, the OPs unit is AquaRite which is pretty good at temperature compensation over a wide range of temperatures until the cell starts to fail.

    Re: Low sal & Check Cell light

    Three most likely reasons
    1) Salt level too low.
    2) Cell wearing out.
    3) Wrong cell type selected.
    What are the diagnostic readings?
    Which cell do you have (T-3, T-5, T-9 or T-15)?
    What is the actual salt level as tested by the Taylor K-1766 salt test kit?
