Hey guys, just curious...
When this guy has an obvious problem with his cell, why do you want him to list a full set of chem readings, when the sensor in the cell is the problem? I realize you want all the info you can get, but its kinda like the guy who has an oil leak in his car and the mechanic wants to know how much gas is in the tank. Sure the water chemistry can be causing the calcium build up, but countering that condition wont help that he has a problem with the cell. I see that NJ did recommend looking at the cell, but it seems that there is always a request for the chem values no matter what the problem seems to be.
I'm not picking on you guys, as i see this everywhere on the forum. I think i service my share of these things, and usually don't need more chem reading than the salt reading in the pool with my tester, to help fix a high salt, cell, or sensor problem.
I figure, first help him get the unit going, then, if he wants to, talk about chem levels, and how to avoid this (if possible) in the future.
Again, not looking for a flaming, just curious.
