    Switching polarities on Aqua Rite

    Moderator comment: This post was separated out from this thread: Switching polarities on Aqua Rite - low readings

    hi i'm having a similar issue with one of my polarities, but instead of being different, one polarity shows 0.00 for amps and -0 for instant check. i can switch between them and the good polarity shows about 5 for amps and -3000 ish for my salt (sometimes when i check it's the good side, other times it's the zero side). we recently had the issue with power and generating lights going out after 20-30 seconds, so we replaced the limiter (which indeed was cracked down the middle). i also recently checked and sprayed out the cell (no apparent build up). it seems to be holding the chlorine levels although we've always had to run it at about 75% since we opened the pool, and we use well water. just wanted to see if i needed to take any immediate action because of the zero polarity side. thx, robin

    Welcome to TFP!

    How many hours are you running the SWG and how old is it?

    With 75% and 12 hours of run time the SWG is putting out 2.2ppm of chlorine a day in your pool if everything is working properly. I wouldn't worry about it too much, but do plan on replacing the cell sooner or later.
