    Need help!

    this year when opening the pool the intellichlor is not working, we have cleaned the cell, changed out the fuse, the green light in the power house comes on but that is it, what can it be? I need it to start working because my pool is turning green!

    You need to get some bleach in that pool now. The SWG won't be able to clear algae, even when it is working.

    First thing to check: Is it actually producing? There's no error lights, right? And it's bubbling inside the cell? If so, push a cup upisde down into the pool, then turn it up right in front of the return flow so you capture the water straight out of the SWG. Test that. It needs to be tested right then, not after an hour's drive to the pool store. If it shows chlorine, then it's working, it just can't keep up with the demand. You need to get ahead of the algae and then it can resume it's daily job.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
