    Welcome to TFP!

    The easiest way is to collect a water sample directly from a return while the cell is running. Test that for chlorine level compared to the chlorine level in the pool. You'll also want to verify that you have sufficient salt before condemning the cell.

    Don't trust that pool store salt test. I would buy a Taylor salt test kit if you don't already have one. Their reading was double you r reading????? Something not right here.

    The pool store test for salt is likely ok. I prefer to do my own testing with the Taylor titration salt test, but the strips can be fine too to give you a ballpark.

    My SWG and test reading never match, but I do it more to look for trends ... like the SWG reading lower and lower, but the test staying the same.

    Re: Hayward Salt Generator

    Did the pool store hook up and test the cell with their tester? If so, it looks like the cell is worn out and needs to be replaced. One of the first indicators that a cell is nearing its end of life is a low salt reading. There are other factors that can cause a cell to read low, but if the pool store tested the cell then I would say the cell is dead.

    Re: Hayward Salt Generator

    You need to contact Hayward to find out what they will do. No sense in us speculating
