SWG Gurus....I've searched and read. First I addressed the cell which had scale build up....cleaned and reset the unit to come up with the same 172 code. Next did the test on the control board both with water flowing and off...not sure if this makes a difference.
Results where not consistent with expected readout:
----------Expected - Actual - Acutal with Water Flow
Test 1 - 2.8gpl-----3.3gpl---------3.4gpl
Test 2 - 75F--------75F-----------75F
Test 3 - 91F--------91F-----------91F
There is also an * that says if Salinity reading has been recalibrated this reading may be different. Before condemning the board check the salinty setting.
I have no way to calibrate the salt levels....additionally while I was away (couple of weeks ago) my brother noticed the salt level was low (2.9) and added a couple of bags to bring it up to 3.3...however he did not turn the salt production to 00% for 24 hours. Not sure if this has anything to do with the inconsistent salt reading from the first test. SWG had been running fine over these several weeks.
So question is, do I buy the control board based on the faulty reading above, or do I get a salt calibration test device first, to calibrate the system? Could it still be the SWG cell, even though it appears fairly clean?
BTW, whole system is only on it's 3 season (of course just outside of warranty) so the cell in theory should be good. New control board looks to cost $120 or so, but I don't want to throw money at the problem if it's not going to fix it.
Any thoughts or additional tests are apprectiated.
