    InteliChlor IC20 Full Output Issue

    Hi, I'm battling a low (to no) FC level in my pool. After a party, I turned the IC20 to "full output". This didn't help bring the FC up, so I ran it again the next day. Since then, the IC20 is stuck on full output and hasn't stopped (But I also don't think it's producing any chlorine since...
