Poolsean or other experts?
I have the pool pilot dig-220 with SC-60 manifold. It is currently going on the third season and last year it worked perfectly before taking it in for the winter months. The cell looked perfect prior to installing this summer, no flaky white crust or scale or anything so I didn't clean it.
Currently I am cycling the pool 5 hours in the morning and 5 hours at night. The swg is running at the following conditions.
Software v. 4.2
purify level 2
20V @ 6.5A
I have been fighting no FC since opening the pool. It appeared at first to be algae, however I performed the major shock by following the direction on the sight and using upwards of 10 gallons by the time I was done and maintaining a FC over night. Been brushing the sides like crazy...
The only time I see any FC is when I dump bleach in the pool. I ran the Boost mode for 24 hours starting yesterday and still zero FC today. I know my taylor kit works because my spa shows the perfect FC counts...
I am running at about 3300 ppm salt and I double checked it with salt test strips. PH is perfect at 7.4 and CYA is currently running a little low at 50.
How do I trouble shoot the autopilot to ensure it is even functioning and generating chlorine? It appears to not be functioning. The displays and everything seem fine. Does the 20v @ 6.5a mean something is going on? Last year I was able to maintain 3-4 FC using purify level of 1, not 2.
I would be really surprised if the cell was dead after 2 years of use. I think I may have used the boost mode once in the 2 years, using mainly the bleach shock method.
Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
