Hello, all. It's been a while since I've visited TFP, but I'm in need of some assistance.
I have an Aquarite system with a T-15 Turbocell that I installed in July of 2007. It's been working great for nearly seven years, but it started reading low numbers for the salt level about 6-7 weeks ago. I figured the cell is probably at the end of its life, given its age. Today, I noticed my chlorine levels are a little low, so I checked out the SWG system. The panel is showing about 30.6 volts and zero current in both polarities. It says the water temperature is 34 degrees, though it's really about 88. That last part is strange and I can find no info on why the temperature would be so wrong at the same time it's no longer generating. I assumed the temperature sensor would be unaffected by the cell's age since it's its own sensor in the cell. It makes me think it's either a coincidence, the temperature sensor failed with the cell, or the control board has failed.
I found a diagnostic chart that made me think the zero current and high voltage indicate a faulty control board and not necessarily a bad cell. I visually inspected the board and it looks brand new with no cooked components, no unusual smells, and not even so much as a single spider nest. The connector to the cell looks clean, too.
I'm wondering if I should just replace the cell and gamble that the control board is fine. Do these symptoms tell anyone here that I should be considering something else? The water is in great shape with all numbers in the ideal range. The water is sparkling clear.
Thank you in advance!
