    Hayward Goldline Aquatrol SWG not working right...

    My SWG normally has the salt level on the display, but two weeks ago it said "Cold"....

    My chlorine has been off (low) and I had to add bleach to the pool...

    I cleaned the cell with acid and rinsed it well and put it back in place, but it doesn't read the salt level..
    I checked the manual and troubleshooting guide and it said if salt is too high, it won't display the salt level, so i emptied and exchanged 20% of the water and it took the salt level from 3700 to 3300 and it still isn't showing salt level..

    The "salt too high" light never came on... I can't get it out of diagnostic mode even after unplugging it, etc..

    I tested to water today and here are my stats:
    pH 7.5, FC 12, CC 1, TA 80, CH 240, CYA 50, Temp 86....

    12,500 gallon in-ground vinyl lined pool, Sta-rite crystal flo 300# sand filter (70 gpm), Sta-rite Max E Flow 1.5 hp pump, Aqua rite electronic chlorine generator (Goldline), Polaris 380 automatic pool vac w/ booster pump.

    It sometimes takes a while before the unit will display a salt level in anything other than diagnostic mode. The salt level is averaged over 24 hours, and won't display if there hasn't been enough time to average over.

    to get it out of diagnostics mode hold the little black diagnostics button for a few seconds until it goes back to reading the salt level

    Re: Hayward Goldline Aquatrol SWG not working right...

    I have a Hayward Aquatrol Goldline SWG. I bought a replacement cell in 2009. I bought my unit in 2007. We have been having trouble with the display showing "Cold" all the time and it will only generate cholorine in "Super Chlorinate" mode. Should we replace the cell again? What can we do to fix this? Is it the board? Thanks for any help!!!
