    Aqua Rite

    Hi all. It has been a while since I last posted anything!

    One of the Aqua Rite SWG seems not to work at all now. Before it had also trouble with the cell readings (cell is bad too, but the owner doesn't want to invest on the fixing).

    Attached you can see a picture from last year when the SWG was still working. Today is completely dead. The display won't show anything at all, is blank (no lights).

    I went through reading what Goldline recommends and they basically say:

    1) check the breaker or electrical connections (done, and no problem there)

    2) check and remove the fuse located below (they state that for models mfg after 2004, this accessible fuse is no longer below and that I one can't solve the problem, please contact them, but here in Baja that is a problem )

    Any ideas on what could be done?

    Two pool tech guys were around the area and I asked them to please take a look at the SWG. They both (different days and time) said that the SWG has to be replaced. One said that it got "fried" because the equipment has no shade and that the box material for sure got so hot that the "motherboard" got fried?

    Does this sounds like a possiblity? I know the SWG is very expensive and for now we are balancing the pool "by hand" for the last months...

    Also I am attaching a picture where you can see the Turbo Cell almost in the middle. The other pool tech guy said that to clean the cell you just have to unmount the cell (unscrew it) and just put the whole piece as shown in the picture into muriatic acid?? I was not there, but someone else asked for me "hey, and how do you know when the cells are clean or if the debris got off the cell?".. The pool tech guy said just to use the MA with water and that would do it... I am not the expert but that sounded fishy hehe...

    Thanks for any useful info. as always!

    Actually I just found from Goldline the ilustrated process for cleaning the cell... I think it can be useful for me and the forum?
    So the cell cleaning part is partially covered...

    Do you get lightening storms in Los Cabos? I came across this web site that talked about repairing an Aqua Rite SWG after a power surge. Here is the link if you are interested:

    Thanks. Yes there are some storms, but not like heavy lightening ones... at least not in the period when the chlorinator stopped working.. I'm trying to find out the causes based on experience from anyone living in hot weather..

    But that article you found is very interesting with good quality pictures and explanations. Thanks a lot!
