Hi. I'm new on this forum and seems like I finally find the right place to ask questions about my salt generator system. I have the Pool Pilot Digtal 220, which bought from a neighbor that was moving out of the country with around 1 1/2 years of use. The unit came with the SC36 cell and my original installation was using that cell. My pool is around 18k of water (3 to 6 feet deep) and was chlorine based until I completely emptied it, cleaned it and converted it into a salt based system. After a couple of weeks of operation started to see some algae growth, upon which was told the chlorine level was very low (water analysis). I increased the number of hours in the pump operation from 4 to 6 hours and decided to order a new/bigger cell (SC48), which ordered from Inyo pools. Even before I installed the new cell I started to see a warning in the panel reading "check / clean cell", time at which I pull the cell assembly out for inspection, cleaned it and re-installed it without any change in the alarm. Once I received the new cell (SC48) I installed it, but I still have the "check/clean cell" alarm, so obviously something is wrong. The readings of the system test sequence are as follows:
Pool Pilot Digital V4.2
Cell 20V 3.5 Amp (Power level set at 3)
I did reset the cell to zero when replaced the cell from SC36 to SC48 and even increased the pool size on the system from 18k to 23k to see if this would help. Testings of chlorine level are on the low side, the salt level seems to be ok. I still see some green algae growth in the corners, so something is bad here. Have someone experienced a similar issue? Your help will be appreciated.
