For whatever reason, I happen to walk over to the pump and wanted to check the temp. on the SWG to see where the pool is since it has been pretty warm lately. I notice the light for generating salt was off so I check the reading of salt on the machine and it was telling me there was only 300ppm salt in the pool when yesterday it told me 2700ppm. I decided to go ahead and check all of the chemicals and noticed that the FC was at 0.5. This was due to the fact that the SWG thought there was no salt in the water so it shut the generation off. Well when I used the test strips to test the salt, it showed 2700 so there is in fact salt in the pool.
Now my question, does this should like it is the cell or the flow switch? I am not sure what detects the salt, temp. etc. I thought the flow switch just determined if there was water flow and the cell did everything else. If someone can let me know about this and what may be my problem, I would be very appreciative.
