    Pentair Salt Chlorinator Without Power

    Be careful with the acid. Acid washing will decrease the life of the plates. Inspect the plates first and if you see signs of build up then proceed with acid washing. Just my thoughts :cheers:

    SWG says "insufficient water flow"

    You can try unplugging the sensor form the board and replugging it back in. Sometimes there is a bit of corrosion in the connector.

    Erratic readings from Aqua Rite SWG

    Mick I just replaced my board which was 9 years old. So far everything seem ok. My cell is about 2.5 years old. You might want to consider changing the board. I got the new board from amazon. It is a lot cheaper that replacing your cell which may be good still. Hope this helps.

    Erratic readings from Aqua Rite SWG

    Mick my swg was acting up much like yours 10 days ago. I recalibrated a few times and now it is working again so possible recalibration again may fix your issue. James may have some other suggestions.

    Erratic readings from Aqua Rite SWG

    Do you know what your salt readings was before you got erratic readings? Can you test for salt if not take a water sample to a local pool store and get them to test for salt.

    Oversizing SWCG - How much is Too much

    Re: Oversizing SWCG - How much is Too much I replaced with a t-15 because it came with one and I prefer to stay with original parts. That being said as I understand the cell is good for 10,000 hrs and by my calculatuions I got that amount. The equipment experts can also comment here:cheers:

    Love your opinions!!!!!

    Hi Chris looks like we have similar pools. We have a hayward Aqua Rite SWG with the T-15 cell. Our PB gave it to us for free so we do not have any other experience. I can tell you that the wife loves it and the only thing I have done is replace the cell last year so we got 7 years 2 months out...

    Does an SWG make sense for me?

    Hi congrats on you new pool. I am not sure what kind of SWG you have but most have a setting from 0-100% chlorine output. I run my pump for 3 hrs a day and have my SWG set at 75%. My pool is about twice the size of yours. I would experiment and set your SWG at 50% and test daily to see if you...

    What size Aqua Rite Cell should I get?

    I understand that if you want to get the most life out of a cell you would have to get the biggest one. I suggest going back with a T-15. You will get less life with a T-3 or T-9. If you go with a smaller one you would have to use it at a higher setting thus decreasing the life of the cell. I...
