Hello everyone. I have an Aqua Rite with a cell that is 5 years old. I am having problems with the system measurement of the salt level. The device says salt level is 2400 and it is ~3800 (by strips and I can also taste the salt in the water). My guess is that the cell needs to replaced.
Now, about 6 months ago I installed a Pentair VF pump. Worth every dime in Socal where electricity is $.37 kwh, so I see the savings in my electric bill. As you know the water flow is slower, but is sufficient to activate the flow switch on the SWG.
Question: At slower water flows, does this interfere with how this SWG works? Does it still work properly?
Here is why I ask. My neighbor has the exact same system (pump and SWG) and replaced his cell recently, but he has the same problem !!! Falsely low salt readings.
So, should I purchase a new cell for $500 or get a "better" system from another vendor for probably twice that? At least it would work right.
