    Unhappy Pentair IC20 IntelliChlor Salt Chlorinator No Power

    The chlorinator had been reading a good salt level but when I took it to have the water tested I was told my chlorine was low and that I should put it on 100% for 24hrs. I did this and the next day the SWG had no lights on the panel. I have previously replaced the fuse and power returned. This time I replaced the fuse and the SWG is still dead. How do I know if the actual Chlorinator needs to be replaced or if it is the motherboard? Because there is no power I am unable to test to see how many total hours the chlorinator has been in use.

    Welcome to TFP!

    First check some simple things. Has the circuit breaker tripped? Is there power at the power supply? Is the cord between the power supply and the cell properly connected?

    Thank you!

    I don't believe the circuit breaker is tripped. I had flipped them all off in order to change the fuse. Mind you, I seem to have to breakers that control the pool (one on the main panel in the garage and one outside next to the pool pump area)

    I have undone and then reattached the power supply cord.

    "Is there power at the power supply?" How do I test this? Should the green light be on? or should I be using a meter?

    The best approach is to use a multi-meter, if you have one.
