    Turned on SWG today and getting errors

    So the water temp is 63 so i decided to turn on the SWG. I have the aquatrol with T cell. Salt level taken with tftest kit is 3400. Diagnostics from awuatrol are as follows

    Salt 1300
    Temp 63
    Voltage 31
    CC 0
    Output 30%
    ISAL 0

    Thanks for any help

    Try this:
    Move switch to off
    turn dial to 50%
    Move switch to auto
    Recheck diagnostic readings

    Same results but showing 50% output

    It does read 2000 for the salt now without adding any.

    You should get an instant salinity reading as soon as you hear the click of the unit turning on. As soon as you hear the click, go to instant salinity and watch that number until it stabilizes. Then, move the switch from auto to superchlorinate and back to auto.

    Ok, it looks like your salinity is about 2600. You should get it up to about 3200.

    I would turn off the SWG, add salt and then turn the SWG back on when the salt is thoroughly mixed in.

    Note: What you're listing as "CC" is actually amps.

    Re: Turned on SWG today and getting errors

    Just realizes the amps part. Sorry about that

    So should i ignore the salt test with the tf kit? I added 17 drops before it went brick red so i figured i was at 3400. Ill pick up salt whule at work in the morning and report back in a couple of days


    Thanks james!

    Re: Turned on SWG today and getting errors

    Salinity is never exact. Your actual salinity might be about 1/2 way between both readings.

    If the cell is old, it might be beginning to wear out. If the cell is wearing out, it will underperform and the system will underestimate the actual salinity.

    You can make the cell work longer, but you have to keep increasing the salinity. Eventually, it will be best to replace the cell.

    I would use the cell until it reads 1000 ppm lower salinity than actual.

    Check the cell for scale and acid wash if necessary (but only if needed).

    Re: Turned on SWG today and getting errors

    So i added the 1 bag yesterday and it went up to 2900 reading on the panel. Need to check the math because i forget how much 1 40 lbs bag should raise it
