    Have you cleaned the cell?
    I think I remember a similar issue a while back. Use the Google search at the bottom left of the page to search and see if you can find it. Post back if you can't and I'll look a little when I have time.

    I had the same problem with an Intellichlor. There was some pretty mild calcium build up in the cell that came off with a muriatic acid wash and it worked much better after that. You should do that and check or have your salt checked.

    The CircuPool techs are available six days a week; give us a call when you are at the unit and we will quickly determine the cause. One thing to check first is where the electrical cord plugs in the cell. Make sure the blue wire is on the middle terminal and that all three electrical cell connections are clean and tight. Lastly, if your pool water is below 50 degrees, the readings will not be accurate until things warm up.

    The water temp will greatly affect the readings. The units are set from the factory for 72% water

    At lower temps the salt will show too low. This is the same for Pentair.
