Hello. I am having issues with my Aquarite system. I have read the thread here extensively, reporting the component on the PCB to replace. My system is experiencing the same problems. I noticed some film developing on the sides of the pool. Went and checked the box and it had no lights on, the digital read out was reading fine it appeared, but no power, no flow lights, nothing.
I shut it off and then turned it back on. The no flow light flashes for about 30 seconds, then the generating light comes on for about 10 seconds, then turns off and thats it.
The readings seem whacky too. The voltage and amperage seem low (I dont recall the exact numbers), the water temp is probably accurate for now at around 73F. The salt read 0, or more specifically - 0.0. I thought, oh wow, we had lots of rain, I should probably add salt, thats likely the problem. I added 3 bags and nothing changed.
I took the faceplate off of the Aquarite and the board looks brand new. The current limiter appears solid and not burnt, or brittle at all. I pulled the board out to look at the back, and it appears brand new as well. No burn marks, or discoloring.
What else should I be checking before I go try and operate on this board, soldering another current limiter on? It hasnt been generating for a week or so, and the pool is starting to show it. I need a fix quickly, but I am hesitant to call out a tech who is going to run me over the coals.
