Greetings! I'd like to use one more lifeline, please!
Last week I started up my Prologic PS4 Salt System for the first time since building the pool. I added the required salt into the water, left my pump running 16 hours per day at 1400 RPM, and set Chlorine to 65%. Just today I went to the pool store to check if the system did in fact generate chlorine, and nope...zero chlorine generated. The "pool expert" told me that the likely reason was that the flow sensor wasn't activating due to pool flow, because after seeing a picture of my equipment pad he saw that the sensor was installed after the cell. He believed the flow sensor should've been installed before the cell, to make sure flow is adequate.
I came home, read some more manuals and realized installation of flow sensor can be done either before or after the cell without any problem, as long as 12" of straight pipe are there. Then I went to the diagnostic of the PS4 and realized I was getting "flow" even at the low speed of 800rpm. So, plumbing wasn't my issue. A little more troubleshooting took me to a "freeze warning" section for the filter pump. I am in Miami, nothing ever freezes here...so I turned the freeze warning off. Immediately after I was seeing new stuff on the menu I wasn't seeing before, such as screen showting: water temperate, -28.16V, -2.5a, 2600 PPM. So, I will check chlorine levels again in 48 hours and hopefully by deactivating the freeze warning I am now being able to chlorinate the water.
I am now seeing the following errors still on the screen, and have no idea how to remove them/fix then:
- Check System: Wtr Sensor Open
- Check System: Air Sensor Open
- Air Temp Error
- Pool Temp Error
From the sound of it, those errors are all connected to likely the same issue. Any ideas of what could be causing it? Will it interfere with chlorination?
