    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...

    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

    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...

    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

    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...

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

    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?

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

    yes, i really like the speedstir, too. I was thinking about just ordering what i need, too. I've done that before. I tried to measure my CH today and got no color! I live i Phx and water is almost 2 yrs old. There's no way there's no CH in the water!

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

    My guess is some people choose Taylor K2006 since it's conveniently sold on amazon (and perhaps at the pool store?). I heard one person say they dont like the Tf-100's awkward fishing box. I can see what they mean but I've been using the TF-100 for 5 yrs and that's what I'm used to, although I...

    Does it matter if the salt cell PCB panel is broken or do I just test my pool daily?

    Fred, I'm sure this can be found on TFP site but one of these days I want to look into the machines that Leslies pool stores sells to lower pH. Sounds too good to be true and noone has mentioned it in passing here when discussing lowering pH so my guess is it's too good to be true, but I...

    Does it matter if the salt cell PCB panel is broken or do I just test my pool daily?

    Fred, no worries about hijacking my thread. I haven't been coming on TFP and it's a good refresher and always something to learn! I'm so far away from remembering all the details of testing since my hubbie took over job and he does it more the pool builder way, (although if there's a prob I...

    Does it matter if the salt cell PCB panel is broken or do I just test my pool daily?

    Marty, you empty your pool every 16 mths? that makes sense. After a couple of years is when I was really working hard to keep things balance. That's when CH got above 800, not out of the tap. glad u clarified. Fred, I don't recall what the CH is out of the tap but I checked my notes and...

    Does it matter if the salt cell PCB panel is broken or do I just test my pool daily?

    Marty how often do you need to test and add acid in the beginning of the season before you r able to get everything in that kind of balance? Or did u simply do alt the foundational work in the beginning, 7 years ago? what do u do the rest of the year, Oct-April? The amt of calcium u gave is...

    Does it matter if the salt cell PCB panel is broken or do I just test my pool daily?

    Marty, I realize we should not get build up. We aren't checking out levels daily and will have to get back to that when we empty our pool in Oct/Nov so we have been lazy about maintaining it. Once we refill we're planning on getting back to the daily TFP method. For now I'm at least glad i...

    Does it matter if the salt cell PCB panel is broken or do I just test my pool daily?

    Marty and c0d3sp4c3, thx for your help! The link is a great resource! We took off the cell and my husband said there was calcium. I wonder if there was some calcium hidden that we couldn't see when we tried a couple of weeks ago. It was strange that after a week on vacay the pool wasn't...

    Does it matter if the salt cell PCB panel is broken or do I just test my pool daily?

    our Hayward salt cell panel is saying that that it is not chlorinating pool, check salt level, very low salt level. pool/panel is about 5 yrs old, we're on Cell #3, this time we bought "jacuzzi" brand from lowes to save a couple/few hundred $$ about 4 mths ago. Cell is clean and FC seems...

    Hi folks. Sorry I ditched my thread and thanku for your comments. We had a pipe leak in the house and have been dealing with that. I think I"ll worry about this issue later as our torn up kitchen and bathroom r taking precedence. Later I'll review this. For now, though, great thoughts. not...

    water leveler-level of water won't lower

    Pool company changed out the leveler a year ago and it's already seeming to have probs, again! The level of the water is high. Since the summer I've been turning it down a few turns and waiting a couple of weeks to see if the level lowered. Last week I turned it just a quarter of a notch...

    thinking of emptying pool

    I everyone! I thought I'd catch ya all up to date. I was hoping to handle getting the TA down myself and then post the good news and life keeps happening and I end up skipping a day or 2 of adding acid, so then I never got the pH where it needed to be. Some days I add twice a day but many...

    Slam under berry tree

    what i'm wondering about is will the mulberry tree ever crack your pool concrete or get into your plumbing? I moved a 1-2 yr old mulberry that was 7 ft from my pool and replanted it in the front yard. Even though my plan is to attempt to keep it under 10 ft I don't want to risk problems...

    thinking of emptying pool

    thx everyone. I'll see how I'm doing for time tomorrow but I only have one MA bottle left over so I might just give them directions. The gentleman coming to help with the house used to work as a pool guy so I hope he'd know not to spill acid on the coping. I left baking soda and directions. thx!
