My pool was just opened up a few days ago. After a few days I went to plug in the SWG and I got an error message - it turns out that the Flow/Temp/Salinity sensor wire has somehow been cut, pretty much in the centre of the wire. The wire/sensor assembly looks like this:
I am guessing that the unit will not operate without the sensor wires connected, is that correct?
Should I get a new sensor wire or is it possible to repair the existing wire (I have lots of slack in the wire)? It looks like the sensor units cost about $150-$200. Can you buy just the wire but not the sensor?
This looks kind of like your phone wire, but there are 8 (or so) wires inside of a flat grey sheath. The internal wires are all colour coded so it should be no issue to determine which is which. Should I just strip back the existing insulation, twist together the wires, and tape it all up with tape? Is it necessary to solder the wires together or is twisting good enough?
