We had torrential rains here yesterday with crazy blowing wind. It seems the Hayward Aqua Rite SWG door was closed but not latched and all kinds of water got in there.
When I checked the chlorine this afternoon is was very low - like 1 or 2 where I keep it more at 6 or 7.
It seems the swg is not working. The top green power and the generating light will go on for a few seconds when I turn the power on to the whole pool equipment set up but then they immediately go off.
We took the faceplate off and it seems dry in there now, at least no standing water we can see.
My manual talks about a fuse - a 20 amp mini ATO fuse located on the circuit board above the cell connector. We did locate that and it about 1/2 inch wide flat thing with a yellow cap that says 120. If that fuse got wet, is that the end of it? Do we have to replace it? Where would I get one? Is that the kind of thing I could get at Home Depot or Lowes?
We didn't take it out because it didn't just pull out so I thought I should talk to the experts first.
The check cell light was on this morning and I just held the button in for the three seconds because I know the cell should be clean because the pool isn't open that long and it was checked when the guys opened the pool in May. Our pool guy said he hasn't seen one yet in our town that needed to be cleaned. Maybe it has to do with our water?
Any direction you can give will be helpful. Thank you so much in advance!
