    Saltwater Generators and Phosphates

    I was wondering if having high phosphates in the pool effect the SWG flow in anyway. I have a intellichlor system and have green lights on the cell but and on the computer it says no salt. PLEASE HELP!

    What computer says no salt? Do you have an Easytouch controller?
    Are all the lights green including the flow light?

    Whatever is happening with the SWG, phosphates don't have anything to do with it.
