I just installed a new Intelliflo pump. Since the pump is now controlled by its own on-board timer system, the old timer is now bypassed. This means the Aquarite control box is powered up at all times. The only thing that turns the cell on or off now is the flow switch. Should the flow switch fail in the closed position the system would continue to generate chlorine with no water flow (a very bad situation). I don't see many other options. What are others doing with a VS pump in a salt pool?
My understanding was the flow switch is there only as a safety device and not to be used for the primary control of the system.
