    Low Amps/Check Cell for Auto Pilot Nano Cholorinator

    Hi There,

    So my chlorinator just hit 12 months old. It worked pretty much perfectly until I started getting this trouble message. The 1st occurrence was about a month ago. I looked it up, it said to clean the cell. Cleaned the cell and then had about 2 weeks or normal operation. Then the trouble message ( Low Amps/Check Cell) started showing up more often. 2 times I cleaned the filter and cell and got a day or 2, back to trouble message. On friday, I went ahead and tried some stuff and did some testing. I did a force reverse which actually made it work that day. But Tuesday, back to low amps check cell. I ran some tests.

    Normal operation:

    0.0v and 0.2amps

    Force Reverse:

    35v and 0.2amps

    Salt level is at 3500ppm and my unit is just under 7800 hours ( and still under warranty )

    I saw some similar posts but they dated back to 2011 and they were not for the Nano unit, so I figured I would repost.

    I am not great with electrical stuff but I can try to trouble shoot it if you guys have some thoughts.



    P.S. I am located in South Florida and run my pump about 6 hours in the summer and 4 hours in the winter for a 10kish gallon pool.

    When they work, they work great. I've been told the Digital Nano boards are bad. I've had two fail in 2 years. If I have to pay for a new board, I'll be looking for another company.
