    POOL PILOT 220-36

    What is a normal range for volts and amps. I cant seem to find that answer anywhere.

    For AutoPilot Digital and Total Control:

    Cell Power 1 = 5.0 amps
    Cell Power 2 = 6.5 amps
    Cell Power 3 = 8.0 amps

    Voltage depends on the cell:
    SC-36 = 17 - 21 volts
    SC-48 = 23 - 27 volts
    SC-60 = 21 - 25 volts

    Thanks. As long as it's within those ranges it means all's good?

    Anything in those ranges is just fine. If the amps are fine but the voltage is a little high that suggests a problem with either the cell being dirty, or low salt level, or the cell getting old.

    Am I on the verge.....

    of needing a new cell? Is age the determining factor? It's on it's 5th season. Water chemistry has always been fairly consistant. Cell has always been clean. Has run an average of 8 hours a day (temp below 50F 4-5 months). Right now i'm on level 2 and it's 21V 6.5A. CYA now 75-80, FC 3.0, NaCl 3100, 92F (5:30 yesterday), Ph 7.5. I've upped the run time from 8 hours (winter mode) to 16 hours. I added no chlorine yesterday and should be 100F+ with bright sunny skies today. Hoping for a higher FC level after work.

    Re: POOL PILOT 220-36

    The cell plates wear out based on how many hours they have been turned on. In a typical setup that means a three to five year lifetime, but that varies.

    Your numbers are consistent with a cell that is getting somewhat towards the end of it's life, but still has some time left. That is assuming the cell plates are not dirty.

    Funny how five years ago five years seemed like a lifetime away.......now its today! But it is only it's 5th season. Hopefully my FC will be good this evening.
