I bought a home 2 years ago with Aqua Rite SWG and Pentair pump system. I first added salt and everything worked fine for one pool season.
In the beginning of this year the problems started. First, the T-cell failed and I replaced it. Then pump motor failed and I replaced it. Then I removed and plugged the leaking solar panel pipes.
Now, I'm getting a steady NO FLOW light, although everything looks and works normally. The only thin I don't have is the actual pool vac. Because I have the screen, there is nothing really getting in the pool and I clean the filter regularly.
I have 2 questions:
1. How to make sure that I have adequate flow. I have no bubbles in the pull and all valves (although pipes are unmarked) are open.
2. The flow switch looks normal, without any nicks although there is a lightly burned discoloration on the grey cable at one spot. Should I just pull out the switch and test it manually.
How do I run the pump with switch out? Just plug the hole? If the switch is not working, should I try to replace the cord or just go ahead and buy a new switch?
