Hi all pool friends!
Since I live in PR we have summer all year long, therefore my pool is open trough the year. Last weekend I noticed that My SWG (Resilience) was not providing a full readout for chlorine (it was displaying 30%). I tought that due to some rains and a recent backwash I had lost some salt...
I went ahead and added additional salt, cleaned the cell and the generator went again to the 100% salt/production. I went again sometime this week and again it was in 30% therefore I suspected that something was wrong... I tested the pool salt (with test strips) and my salt level is fine. Second test I did, I verfied the cell for scale buildup and everything was fine. I turned the SWG on/off several times and my reads increased to 50-60%.
I decided to remove the cell and check the connectors, I cleaned them with some compresed air and cleaned the cell one more time... My reads increased again to 50% even tough the dial is @ 100%. I decided to add some acid trough the skimmer; to my surprise, when I went to the SWG it was reading 100% again;
Today when I went to check the SWG it was on 60%. I added some more acid trough the skimmer and surprise! 100% readout again.
My question is, Is my cell starting to die? Is it not clean enough? What can I do in order to trouble shoot even more? any suggestions?
