Hello,

I don't know what is wrong with my Aquarite Salt System. A few days ago, the HI LED LIT and remains constant. I have drain quite a bit of water and add on fresh water. However, the HI LED still stay on after the system kicks in once flow thru the cell reached (15-25 seconds after turn to either AUTO or SUPERCHLORINATE mode). I have 2 cells and the controller gives me the same problem = HI LED Stay ON. Another thing is the salt level display always display 0. Does anybody has this same problem? Because it happens on both Cells, I dont think the problem is the cell. Any suggestions/recommendations is greatly appreciate. Thanks for reading.

Regards,

Minh Nguyen

Hi again :wave:

With 2 cells both reading 'high salt', I'd have to assume that the salt level is 4000+ ppm. Is there any way you can test the salinity?
thanks for responding. I was on travel and just got back. i have my pool on chlorine now due to travel. I am ready to tackle the problem again. I don't know how to test the salinity of the water. While on travel, i research more on the web and someone recommend that the control board may goes bad. I will check that too. Thanks.

Lightning can sometimes burn out one of the components on the board, which can lead to the salt level always reading zero. Open up the control unit and see if any of the components seemed burned.

Thanks Jason. I did bought a thermistor (typical burn out part cause by lightning) and have yet to replace it. I removed the controller box front panel, and main control board, nothing looks bad or burned. But i will remove the thermistor, and ohm it out with the new one. Will replace and hope this fix the problem. Will post the result soon i hope. Thanks.
