    Replace a TCell 15 with a TCell 3?

    Excellent information as I was not aware that it only required removing a jumper to allow the main board to be compatible with the Aquatrol t-5 cell. 8-) The rebuild service may also be a cost effective solution. If you try this service, please post your observations and total replacement...

    Replace a TCell 15 with a TCell 3?

    Won't work. :( You need software revision 1.5 or higher to use the low output cells. Even if you had this version, you would probably not be happy with a unit that produces 1/3 of the amount of chlorine that your current cell produces. If funds are the issue, then consider the GLX-CELL-15...

    Metals in my fill Water

    Our fill water from a well has trace amounts of Iron and over time it causes stains. I used Jack's Magic Purple Stuff for 2 seasons in our saline pool and it worked well. I am currently testing the Blue Wave brand of Super Rust & Scale Remover. It is an HEDP based sequestering agent at 1/3...

    Communication error 2 "The display/keypad is not receiving any communication from the Aqua Logic main control unit. The most likely cause of this problem is a broken wire or "open circuit" in wires "2" and/or "3" in the cable between the display/ keypad and the Aqua Logic main control unit."...

    How to test SWG before replacing cell

    Here are a couple of things to check before you condemn the controller or cell. Clean the cell per the manufacturers instructions. As calcium scales builds up inside the cell, then chlorine production decreases. Test the Stabilizer/conditioner (CYA) level in the pool water. If CYA is less...

    The front wheel should't freewheel. The 380's have two belts that transfer power from a centrally located pulley to the two wheels. The two belts are available as a BELT KIT and are normally replaced at the same time. These belts are commonly replaced items and many pool stores keep them in...

    High Clorine Leves w Hayward Sense and Dispense

    ORP extended means the system is running the pump continuously trying to adjust the ORP level. The pump will run 24/7 no matter what you have set for the ouput % or pump run duration :shock: This is why the chlorine level is so high. The probes may need to be cleaned. To clean the ORP and pH...

    Check Cell Light

    If the inspect cell LED is flashing then there is no need to return the cell. The inspect cell light is only a service reminder. :-D It is kind of like the oil change light on your car. :mrgreen: Take a look inside the cell and look for calcium scaling. If you see scale, clean the cell...

    CYA question for the experienced pro's

    The advantages of maintaining the recommended CYA concentration are increased cell life and shorter pump run times. $10 for the cost of CYA seems like a bargain to be able to decrease the pump run time by up to 40% and to almost double the life of the cell. The only advantage to a lower CYA...

    Hayward chlorine feeder oring

    The better quality o-rings are made of Viton and will last longer in the harsh environment of high chlorine, highly acidic (low PH), and frequent removed area of the chlorinator. The less expensive o-rings will work but won't last as long. If you buy the cheaper o-rings, then buy 3 or 4. :)...

    Goldline generator

    No, it looks like you simply need to add some stabilizer conditioner (CYA) to the water. Hayward recommends 60 to 80 ppm of CYA for these systems. Your water has 0 Without stabilizer in the water, the sunlight breaks down the chlorine faster than the salt cell can produce it. Use the pool...
