I am having a problem with my salt generator and before I throw it over the fence maybe someone can help. The filter has been running 2 weeks now and the salt gen is showing a water flow alert off and on. One second it shows normal then I'll come back and check and its showing water flow problems. At first I thought maybe the connection from the flow valve was bad so I put 2 new budd connectors on. I also tightened the 2 wires going to the posts on the salt gen tube. Still having problems so I took the cover off of the power unit thinking maybe something was eating at the wires or maybe something was loose. With everything I couldn't reproduce the flow fault by jiggling the wires. Now should I unscrew the flow valve to check it IF there is anything to check? I also tried seeing how much a replacement flow valve would cost but couldn't even find one. I have an Aqua Comfort SCC-40 that was installed with the pool in 2009. Last year it was giving me problems also but not as bad
Yesterday I bought Muriatic acid and all I could get was the Home Depot "safety Kleen" which isnt as powerful. I deluted about 4 to 1 and put the cell in a bucket on its side because I couldn't find a cleaning cap for it. It didn't bubble like they said it should but I left it in for about 10 minutes, rinsed and then put it back in with a 3 to 1 mixture. It didn't look bad to begin with but that wound up not helping. What to do next?
Ps the salt level is good
Thank you and wishing all a safe Memorial Day
