    Pentair Intellichlor IC20 Chlorine Generator

    "Cell Life" LED is flashing green! I run my system 9 hrs/day. Any idea how much time is left before replacement?

    A flashing light means the cell isn't producing chlorine. You need to manually add some now.

    you also need to clean the cell and even possibly replace it. How many hours are on the cell? How old is the cell?

    The cells about four years old. Has about 12-14,000 hours. Is this alot, or average? Thanks for your help.

    Cells typically last three to five years, or about 10,000 hours producing chlorine. So your cell is getting towards the end of it's life, if it isn't already there.

    If you can borrow a Pentair IntelliWand, it will tell you detail diagnostics for your cell. Many pool pro's have them and some stores may have a unit in their repair dept. I paid about 110.00 from online store.
