    Zero amps and zero instant salinity reading

    For the past two days I have noticed something with my SWG. It seems to be working fine in the late morning. It is generating, I see the bubbles coming from the return and the panel says it is generating. However, when I come home in the afternoon, it still says it is generating on the panel but there are no bubbles coming from the return. And then when I go into the diagnostics both the amps and instant salinity say zero. What does this mean? Thanks for any info.

    Good idea. It is a Goldline SWG and it has a t-15 cell. The pool was put in last summer so the unit is just under a year old.

    What percentage do you have it set on? It may be in the off cycle. I.E. if you have it set for 50%, that means it's on half the time and off half the time. I think that's per hour.

    Normal operation for the Aquarite system
    The generating light will stay on even when the system is in "time out" mode based on the output percentage.
    The output percentage is based on time not voltage or amps.
    For example
    If we run the pump for 10 hours per day with the output set to 80%, then the unit is actually generating chlorine at a fixed production rate for only 8 of those 10 hours. If we look at the diagnostics menu during the 2 hours that the unit is in "time out" then the amps will be 0 and the instant salinity will read 0. No need to worry about the instant salinity, simply verify the average salinity weekly. This is the number that is constantly displayed on the LCD. 3200 is the ideal salinity for these particular units.

    Thanks for the replies. I'm still learning about this system and sometimes can't find the answers in the manual. Thank goodness for this board!
