I have lived through the slow deterioration of a T-15 cell gradually showing low salt. However this time it is doing something different.
- The instant salt reading will alternate between restarts or resets. It will read low (-2100) and then regular (-3400) every other time. If it reads -2100, I can turn off the pump, restart the pump, and it will read -3400. If I turn off the pump and restart the pump again, it will read -2100 again. It will alternate between the two readings ever single time I restart or reset the instant salt reading. It took me a while to find this pattern. I won't go into the whole thing, but it has come down to this being the issue.
When it reads -2100, it will generate at around 4.5 amps at 100% if I have the average salt reading around 3000. (resetting until it gets there). When it reads -3400, it will generate at the proper amperage of about 6.75 at 100%.
Has anybody come across this issue or have some further troubleshooting ideas? I just found this pattern today and thought I would get it on here for discussion. I will try to get a friends T-cell sometime this week to see if it also does this to narrow it down to either the cell or control panel.
P.S. Just to note:
I have cleaned it to visual inspection of a clean sensor inside the cell.
Chlorine readings at the jets confirm generation.
This is a 1.4 version
Plug contacts appear clean and in good condition.
