I have an Goldline/Aquarite SWG. The unit is about 7 years old. The cell was replaced about 3 years ago.
The salt level on the unit reads 1700, but the salt level is actually 2800 (tested with strips and the pool store). Since the SWG thinks the salt level is low, it shows low salt and check cell. Took the cell into the local pool store and it tested good.
I recalibrated the salt reading (really just replacing the average reading with the instanteous reading). It goes to 2900-3300 for a while, but eventually works it way down to 1700. The instanteous salt reading it is still low, so I think the recalibrating just fooled the unit for a while.
Is the cell wearing out and just happens to check OK? Is the board/unit bad? Anyway to check the board before buying a new one?
New member. Great forum. Any assistance is very much appreciated.
