    Confusing Ecomatic ESC Manual(s) - Salt Level - Acid ratio to clean

    I have an ESC-36 and in my hardcopy manual from about 5 years ago, it says the minimum salt level should be 3000ppm and I run at 3500.

    The online manual you can get says minimum is 4000 ppm and ideally 4500 ppm

    this is on page 20 of the attached

    As far as cleaning your cell, my hardcopy says 1 part acid to 3 parts water. The online manual says 1 part acid to 10 parts water but still has a diagram showing 3 to 1.

    this is on page 10.

    What are the correct levels based on these 2 conflicting manuals by them?

    I am attaching the manual you can find online. You can download this small file here:

    If the SWG is happy working and not giving salt errors then I would run it at 3500. If it says low salt then bump it up to 4000 and see if that makes a difference.

    To clean the cell start with the 1:10 ratio and see how it cleans up. If it doesn't clean it, add some more acid to the mix. A 1:3 ratio is fairly strong and I would avoid that if possible.

    They most likely made some changes to the units from the time you got yours. The online manual is probably for the new units and therefore reflects the latest recommendations. Ping had good recommendations above.
