I'm new to this forum, this is my first post. After noticing some algae in my pool, I checked the Aqua Rite, and saw that the cell voltage was not within the range specified in the manual. The voltage goes up to about 18.8 and then drops down to .9, where it stalls for a moment, and starts climbing again. When it gets to 17.0, the top 2 LED's come on, it then continues to climb to 18.8, the LED's go out, the voltage drops to .9, and the cycle starts again, ad infinitum. This cycle occurs when the switch is off or on auto. I have searched this forum, and did see a description of similar symptoms, but the subsequent postings didn't seem to address the problem. I dont see any obvious damage in the control box. I called the toll free number for Hayward, after reciting the diagnostic values to the "service" person twice, he suggested that I call the people who installed the SWG. I called them, they cant get here for a week, and i'm pretty sure they are just going to want to replace the whole control. It seems like I could get out of this without replacing the control. I'm pretty handy and I got a multimeter and i'm not afraid to use it. Anybody got any suggestions?
Thanks in advance,
