    AutoPiolit User needs help with a SWG

    Hey guys glad I found this board, I had a bad cell coard (Burnt ends) I replaced the cord. However I am still getting Warning Low Amps Cell as a warning. I have the Digital moder and my readout is as follows.

    salt 3400 PPM
    28 Volts
    2.5Amps

    Could it be anything other than the cell? I cleaned all fiters.
    Ph is around 7.2


    HELP PLEASE, are my AMPS LOW? heck am I even generating Chlorine now?

    Check the cell blades for wear. Depending on the cell model you have, you're going to check the two outer blades (for the SC-36 and SC-48 cells), or the center and two outer blades (Sc-60 cell), for wear. This will appear as if the leading edges of these blades are worn down, and shorter than the blades between them. Make sure your cell is scale free too.
    Finally, check your salinity level by having it physically tested and compared to what the DIG shows you the salt level to be. If it is different (lower), add salt and calibrate it.

    As you're showing amps and volts, you are generating "some" chlorine, just not alot.

    Well, if nothing else, from my own experience with my ESC-36, I would start by raising the salt level to about 5000ppm as I was told by the tech guy at Ecomatic and see what happen within 2-3 days...

    Increasing the salt level will help compensate for cell wear (but just a little) or colder water temperatures. I think the Ecomatic needs a higher level of salt to begin with, and may be why the tech suggested that.
