    SWG readings - not sure how to interpret

    Hi folks - trying to determine if my SWG is working properly here is the readout ...

    Salt level - 3300
    Temp -74
    27.3
    6.44
    85
    -3100
    AL-0
    r1.59
    T-15

    thoughts anyone?


    Thanks!!

    3300 is an average salt concentration in ppm for the last x minutes (I forget what X=)
    74 is water temp measured at the cell
    27.3 is the voltage going to the cell
    6.44 is the amperage going to the cell
    3100 is salt concentration in ppm at the cell when you press the button
    AL, R and T are the manufacturers code for the cell and the controller software versions.

    Only the 2nd salt concentration number really means anything, my temp always reads a few degrees higher at the cell than in the pool.

    Voltage should be 22-25 when generating. Current should be 4.5-7.8, again when generating. Looks normal to me.

    The #s in order are:
    Pool temperature (at the cell - can be warmer than in the pool as it may be heated water coming in)
    Cell Voltage
    Cell Current
    Desired output % (on your dial or 100 if you are on super)
    Instant Salinity
    Product Name (AL-0 for aqua rite)
    Software version

    You can get this on the Hayward site.
