I didn't know my T-Cell-15 no longer generated chlorine, so I kept adding salt to my pool.
A month ago, I noticed the water became cloudy even after I cleaned the cell and add salt. So last week, when I checked my chemicals at pinch-a-penny, the owner said my cell didn't generate chlorine because its salt reading was way high (close to 6,000) and chlorine level was way too low. He said I had to drain about half of pool water to balance it which freaked me out. After I came back home, I ordered a new T-Cell-15 and just got it.
Now after I replaced it with the new one and set it to "Super chlorinate", it says "HI" rather than 3,000 something like that, and "Generating" light is off and "Super chlorinate" is on. So I started to add water while T-Cell and the pump are running, and plan to run both over night.
So I am wondering when "Generating" light is off, if it really doesn't generate chlorine at all despite "Super chlorinate" on. If not, is there any way to force to generate chlorine even though it says "HI"?
It happened a month ago: after I touched something which I don't know in Aqua Rite panel, the salt reading which used to display "2,600" or "3,200" is now "2.60" or "3.20" instead respectively. What should I do to change its reading back to the original one?
Thank you very much in advance for your answer.
