    Easy Touch reports 0 ppm? IntelliChlor shows good salt

    Just recently, my EasyTouch 8 (under Diagnostics->Chlorinator) reports 0 ppm/OK- No Errors. IntelliChlor inline was showing low salt, so I added a bag and it went back green, but ET8 still shows 0 ppm. Any tips? It was working a few weeks ago, when IntelliChlor was blinking red for low salt and ET8 reported something along the lines of 2400 ppm. All was good after I added a bag etc....

    To add, the entire system is about 6 months old. Pool was finished last August.

    You need to test the salt level. The best test for us homeowners is the Taylor K-1766 test, but a good batch of salt test strips will work. The problem with strips is that they do go bad and they are not as reliable as the Taylor test.

    I would remove the cell and inspect it for scaling. If it doesn't have scale don't clean it.

    thanks. The acid cleaning referenced above would be for the cell as well (if scale is present), yes?

    Only inside the cell if there is scaling.
