    Pentair IC40 SWG in Florida with 34 month of service and 20% used life not generating chlorine

    It appears that I had an issue with the pool chemistry. Something must have been growing and I didn't notice it. SLAM'ed it and the pool looks much better! Sorry for the confusion here!

    Pentair IC40 SWG in Florida with 34 month of service and 20% used life not generating chlorine

    Jim, What I am saying is that the SWG lights turns and the cell is creating chlorine, but I guess the SWG cannot keep up with the Chlorine requirements of the pool when set to 100%. Haha, sorry. I am all over the place here. Let me summarize. My pool currently has a high requirement for...

    Pentair IC40 SWG in Florida with 34 month of service and 20% used life not generating chlorine

    Here is the video of the SWG creating chlorine. I am about to go and check the before and after chlorine content. Pool water FC is 9ppm, SWG FC is off the charts. I got to about 30ppm and had to stop using all of my reagents!

    Pentair IC40 SWG in Florida with 34 month of service and 20% used life not generating chlorine

    Thanks for your reply. Is it the wires in the upper left hand corner of your image? Yes, there is no scale that I can see. I went to the pool supply store and they lent me a spool piece to install and then test the SWG. The cell is creating chlorine when I press on the flow switch. I will post...

    Strange leak in my friend's pool - also need help identifying equipment / piping

    Long story short, turns out that there was a leak at the skimmer. My friend was using the wrong testing dye and was showing a false-negative at the skimmer. He had to hire someone to find it and repair it.

    Pentair IC40 SWG in Florida with 34 month of service and 20% used life not generating chlorine

    As the thread title states, I live in Florida and have a Pentair IC40 SWG. This is the first July that we are staying here (we usually go on a month long road trip - and it is blazing hot here) and I usually hire someone to maintain my pool for a few weeks. I should have noticed this earlier but...

    Strange leak in my friend's pool - also need help identifying equipment / piping

    I found a picture in this post to visualize it. So what is the difference between a blower and a bubbler air intake? Good call on the check valve. Problem is hooking something up with enough pressure to overcome the pressure from the pool water. Although once you take the cap off, I suspect...

    Strange leak in my friend's pool - also need help identifying equipment / piping

    I'm trying to help a friend locate a leak in his pool but we are really struggling to find it and wanted to see if anyone can assist remotely. A few things to note that are causing concern. The pool looses about 4" worth of water a week. Not sure how many gallons that is, but I suspect it is...

    0.5 ppm CC with increasing FC

    Interesting. Thanks for sharing. I guess my plan is at this point to turn the chlorine generator off and allow for some of FC to dissipate naturally. I will test daily until I get back to normal levels (~5ppm).

    0.5 ppm CC with increasing FC

    Great! Thank you! Good question. No, it was not mixed in well. She was in the pool before I had a chance to test and adjust.

    0.5 ppm CC with increasing FC

    Bit of newbie here that has been testing and maintaining his own pool water with a K-2006C and pool match for over a year now without any significant issues or even any issues to note at all. I have read all of the documentation on the site in the past and did a bit of a refresher today, but I...
