Thread: Replace temp cell sensor w/o replacing the entire Turbo cell?

    Replace temp cell sensor w/o replacing the entire Turbo cell?

    I have the same problem. The "Cell Temp Sensor" reading has been steadily climbing over the last several days and the salt reading is steadily going down. After about a week, the diagnostic menu of the control panel says my pool is a ridiculously high 180-degrees (F). The actual pool temp is below 80-degrees (F), so it is obvious that something is wrong somewhere in the cell temp sensor circuit. I suspect that the low salt reading is a programming side-effect of the high temp reading.

    I wondering if you solved your problem and what the issue was. I've had motherboard issues with my Hayward Goldline controller in the past, so I would like to know if this is likely to be a motherboard issue, a connector issue, or a Turbo Cell issue.

    I'd also like to know if the cell temp sensor can be replaced without replacing the entire Turbo Cell.

    Thanks,

    The temperature reading comes from the cell. I'm pretty positive it can't be replaced or it would be a warranty procedure like Pentair has done with the intellichlor temp/flow sensor to prevent them from having to pay for a whole cell.

    Do you have a pool store around with the goldline cell tester? It doesn't always fail the cell if it's just a bad temp sensor, but it can't hurt and it should be free

    Typically a bad Goldline/Hayward cell gives a "HOT" error message if it's a bad temp sensor.

    Is this installed on an AquaRite, AquaLogic?
