    5 mth old jacuzzi brand salt cell not producing chlorine. what do I do now and later? pool Co didn't give full story about warranty

    After all of these months of trying to figure this out and strangely, pool seemed to be producing chlorine for the most part, but then it had gotten algae once, after being told by pool store that they couldn't test their own cell and going in circles with the warranty service department being...

    5 mth old jacuzzi brand salt cell not producing chlorine. what do I do now and later? pool Co didn't give full story about warranty

    I wouldn't know if we have pH and ORP sensors. Would that be helpful for this process to turn them off? Several pool store employees told me they can't test cell, but then 1 manager at pool store said to bring it in and test it. We were going to bring it yesterday but have decided it's...

    my signature was too long to add serial #s there. this is my salt cell: S/N:165A5DHWE1990343 panel-not sure but these #s are near bar codes on the door: 3L15037-1074581 and PL-P-4. Also, on my panel door recommended pool chemistry for my pool says 2700-3400 ppm salt. The panel didn't...

    the video's panel looks a bit different than mine but i have a menu button, arrows and +/- button so I tried to go through it the best I understand and took pics of each panel, so here's what my pics seem to say with the sun shining on them: chlorinator off filter delay: 28... +27.05V...

    James, I think one of the reasons I'm confused is we have a hayward prologic panel and a jacuzzi brand salt cell. we used to have a hayward cell and i will fix my profile info. There is no switch for auto, off, that I see. we use a menu buttom on the prologic panel

    5 mth old jacuzzi brand salt cell not producing chlorine. what do I do now and later? pool Co didn't give full story about warranty

    thx! first, I'm not sure why I asked if the TFP method can make a cell last longer. I knew that regarding calcium not building up as often. Could be that we add too much acid, as well or that we are chaging out cells that aren't bad. for 2d cell, from what i remember, we took it to pool...

    thx mknauss, I had been very faithful with TFP recommended levels first few years and now my husband has taken over, which is not TFP, but if it turns green because we didn't check cell/FC or this issue we've been having with this cell seemingly stopping to produce FC after a couple weeks at...

    our Hayward salt cell panel has been giving us problems the past few months. It's often told us that it is not chlorinating pool, check salt level, very low salt level. I test my own salt and we're fine with salt, if not more than I wanted as hubbie didn't hear me when I said "add 1/2 the bag"...

    Why choose TF-100 or Taylor K2006? And, preview of the new TF-Pro and TF-Pro SALT

    Hi Gene! Long time no talk. Well said, refill kit and support a small biz and if as it seems TF-100 is connected to TFP (still not clear on that), that would be nice to support them... Admin, you've got em' all beat on the nice looking test kit! You're getting unsolicited advice after all...

    Why choose TF-100 or Taylor K2006? And, preview of the new TF-Pro and TF-Pro SALT

    I couldn't find what exactly is included in the Taylor kit on amazon. It's clearly listed on the tftestkits page for the TF100. Sounds like the bottles r different sizes and most people likke the blue box better, but I'd have to say one perk of the TF100 is that you can easily see what's what...

    Rancho, good idea for a different kind of box. I don't see a CYA tester in the 2006C, or maybe there's a different kind of test for CYA (and others) in the Taylor kit?
