I have a Pool Pilot Digital (SC-36 cell) that no longer appears to be producing chlorine. I've had my water tested several times and the chlorine is at or near 0 even a few days after shocking the pool. CYA is 60, pH is 6.7, salt 3000. Other chemicals were all withing normal ranges (similar to a few months ago when the Pool Pilot was producing chlorine). I've increased the cell power from 2 to 3 and it made no difference. A few years ago I replaced the cell because the digital display said it was needed. However, this time, while I think the cell might need to be replaced there is no such message on the display. So before spending the money on a new cell I want to make sure it's the cell that is bad.
The local pool store offers a cell test but not sure if that is worthwhile. Does anybody have experience with one of those? Also, I read in another thread that on cell power 2 there should be 6.5 Amps and 17-21 Volts however when I ran the self-test it said 6.5 Amps and 2 Volts.
Thanks for any info.
