Hello to all,
I'm currently having a problem with SWG generating the minimum level of chlorine. It can not generate more than (.05) FC even in the Boost mode for days now. Its a 13,000 gallon pool my system is a Autopilot Soft Touch SC-36 cell.I had a water balance problem to begin with, but have got everything sorted out by adding more salt and CYA. Also my soft touch & cell are almost four years old as of Oct. this year.
My problem started four weeks ago after a water test showed no FC in my sample. Thus after lots of swim usage ( two partys) and LOTS of rain with some water draining involved.The pool store told me my CC was to high even after shocking with 2.5 gallons of chlorine that was, quite old (left over from last fall).
I have treated twice now for a mustard algae (Yellow treat) 5 oz. and 1.25 gallons of good chlorine. Even after the 2.5 gallon shock treatment. As the chlorine begins to lower my SWG's output (FC) is between 0 &.05 at best. My salt level is 3500 ppm and cya is 70.
I also have ran the Diagnostics mode on the the Soft Touch it reads as follows:
18 Volts in boost mode cell power one.Amps between 6.0 to 6.4. Cell power two volts 18. Amps 6.4 to 6.5. Cell power three volts 19. Amps 5.9 to 6.6.I have checked cell and made sure of no clogs or impasses as well as the screen.
I see that Auto Pilot Techs monitor this site and surely hope they see my post this weekend.I have also spoke with Rich @ auto pilot he has been very helpful in my troubleshooting process but any tips are welcomed.
