My Aqua Rite chlorinator is giving me fits. The salt meter is stating 2300 ppm and that is incorrect according to a pool test with salt strip reading and a calibrated salt meter reader. Iíve changed out the flow sensor and T15 cell to the old ones I had in 2008 and get the same readings. Iíve reset the meter numerous times and it settles on 2300 to 2500 after a while. I really hate to throw more money at this device after reading all the problems others are having with this device. I could replace the boards and maybe that would fix it for 3 or 4 years then Iíd just be going through this again.
Besides just sharing my disappointment with Hayward, Golding, and Aqua Rite I seeking any last ideas to reset the salt meter to an accurate reading.
Current controller readings are:
2500 ppm salt
27.1 cell volts (seems high, 22.0 to 25.0 normal)
1.51 cell current (seems low, 4.5 to 7.8 normal)
There seems to be fewer posts of problems with the Pentair IntellIChlor IC40; would this be an improvement in quality and longevity? I have an IntelliFlow variable speed pump and IntelliLogic indoor controller so maybe dumping Aqua Rite for Pentair would be a good way to go.
Your thought would be appreciated. Thanks for providing this forum; Iíve learned a lot.
