I have a 35grm chlorinator, which has about 8000 operating hours, and seems to be on his last legs.
Troubleshooter says that a properly functioning cell should output between 21-24V and 7.2A.
My cell measures 18.5V and 7.2-7.5A with a salt level of ~5000ppm.
Now the strange thing is that when I dilute the salt content, by adding fresh water to the flow going through the cell, the output voltage will increase to about 19.5V, while the current stays about the same.
When I increase the salt level to +6000ppm, the output voltage will decrease to below 18V, with the current again staying stable. I would thing that it should just be the opposite, with higher salt level also higher output voltage.
I have tried a new cell, and the behavior is exactly same.
Can anyone explain this?
