    simnala,

    If the unit is in the "Boost" mode, the output lights will flash left to right.. Push the More and Less buttons at the same time to shut off Boost.

    I noticed two thing that concern me..

    1. The salt light is not green.. or red.. I'm not sure why that would be???

    2. An IC20 for a 16K pool is way undersized. My guess is that you will need to run the unit at close to 100% for 24/7 to produce the amount of chlorine needed.

    Is this unit connected to an automation system?

    Think maybe you could narrow down your location a little??? Hard to give any advice is we don't have a general idea of what your climate conditions are..

    Thanks,

    Jim R.

    I believe the lights may flash if the percentage is not at 20, 40, 60, 80 or 100 through the Easytouch.

    That is correct, it flashes the percentage it is closest to when Easytouch has it at say, 43%.

    There is something up with that unit. You should not have condensate inside like that. Call Pentair and see about warranty right away. There is a serial number sticker, should be on the underside of the cell, have that ready when you call.

    Had the same symptoms with a new IC40 I bought from Amazon. Turned out to be an internal water leak that was faulting the electronics. After 2 days, I sam water dripping from the control panel face opposite the salt light. You need a new cell!
