Hi All... First post, so be gentle! lol. Anyway, I have done a lot of looking and I can't seem to find a solution to my problem. I have an Aqua-Rite SWG (manufactured in 2008). I bought the house with pool 6 months ago. I recently switched to saltwater (added 15 40 lb bags) to use the SWG that came with the house. After adding salt turning on the SWG, I got the dreaded "check cell" steady light and "check salt" light. I assumed the cell went bad, since I just bought the house and had no way of knowing how old the cell was or when was the last time anyone ran the SWG. So, I shelled out $500 for a new T-15 cell. I installed the new cell, and I am still having the same problem. So I you tubed "how to calibrate t-15 cell" managed to re-calibrate the cell. Off, auto, wait for click, press button 5 times, wait for countdown, switch to superclorinate when correct salt level is reached, then to auto. The problem is when I wake up in the morning and check the SWG, the lights (inspect cell (steady) and check salt) are on. I called Aqua Rite, who first told me the "board wasn't picking up the t-15 cell". I explained to him that according to the Aqua Rite website, only boards with a firmware version of 1.5 or higher have the option to select which type of cell is in use. My firmware is ver 1.40. He still insisted that I need a new board. My numbers are:
If I need a new board, then fine... But the Aqua Rite guy didn't seem to want to be very helpful. Any help/guidance is appreciated!
