    Intex SWG sensor issue

    so I am getting the Low Salt message (even though I know we are not low on salt) and I believe it's the sensor. Why does Intex not make it so that it's just an alarm and doesn't turn it's self off??? Any ideas on how to disconnect the sensor? I hate to have to purchase a new SWG again (lines are buried and such a hassle to have to replace). There is a video on YouTube, however, there is no sound so it's kinda hard to follow. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Did you clean the cell? You can use vinegar, look at manual for instructions

    Yep, +1, cleaning will often fix that.

    Once mine starts doing that, it's time for a new cell. They last about 2 years.

    Wal Mart was closing out their Intex SWGs earlier this week for $50. That's cheaper than a replacement cell if you can still find one.

    Yeah I know - there's not a Walmart within 2 hours that had one in stock. 😣😣 think we are just going to finish out the next couple of weeks with some chlorine tabs and buy and new one for next year.

    You can get a replacement cell from Intex if you call them. My last one was $69 shipped, but that was a couple of years ago.
