    Testing SWG Salt cell

    How can I test a salt cell to verify its working properly. Looking to help a friend test their cell its a normal SWG. They have the right amont of salt for thier pool/swg manual. They run the pool filter/swg at 8 hrs a day. CYA is up at 70. FC showing 0 to .5. I currently have them adding liquid chlorine until we figure out the SWG.

    What brand and size cell is it?
    What test kit do you or they have?

    You can usually crack a union on the downstream side of the cell and test the FC coming out of it and compare it to the pool water and if it's a few ppm higher that means the cell is working. Make sure that the unit is generating when running that test.

    I see from your sig that you have the TF-100. Usee that to test the FC right out of the cell and in the pool. That should tell you if it's working.
