    Does the AquaRite compensate for salt level

    Do the AquaRite, and other Hayward SWGs, compensate for the salt level, so they always produce about the same amount of chlorine?

    The voltage reported by the diagnostic display does change in different circumstances, but is that because they are using a constant current power supply (as AutoPilot units do) or is something else going on?

    Re: Does the AquaRite compensate for salt level

    Unless the software changed recently, the AquaRite does not compensate the chlorine production for the salt level change. Lower salt level means lower chlorine production. The percent setting remains a constant so the chlorine production will effectively go down with salt level but it would be proportional to the salt level change. So going from 4200 to 3800 would only be a 10% change in production. The unit, however, compensates the salt readout for temperature change.
