still trying to get the trouble out of my trouble free pool...
I think my issue is the same as Jeff74's, but I did not want to hijack his thread.
My salt strips (new from tf kits this season) measure 3600, my swg (pentair ic40) measures 4500 on the diagnostic. I did 3 strips to be sure.
I'm getting a high salt flashing green light on the unit.
It has been doing this off and on since we got a power surge a few days ago. Not sure if the power surge has any bearing on this or not. When the ic40 was "happy" yesterday am, the diagnostic said the salt level was 4400. I think 4500 is the # that triggers the high salt light.
I'm almost positive the unit is not making chlorine, because I had it on 60% overnight and the chlorine level did not budge.
The pool was shocked per tfp a few days ago, all 3 criteria passed. I have maintained chlorine with 12% liquid so it has never dipped below 5.5, no ccs, so I doubt anything new is growing.
I am planning on draining some water, bto see if that helps.
Do you have any other suggestions?
I'm ready to take out the swg, put in the dummy cell, and use bleach on the pool. or fill it in and plant flowers, whichever is easier.
as always, thanks in advance for your help. I have been a very high-maintenance tfp'er this year.
