Intermittent "flow" light issues - RESOLVED

Installed new Circupool SJ-20 this season and can't get it going right. The "flow" light turns from green to red every few minutes, stopping the chlorine generation, then turns green a few minutes later. I've checked the electrical connections and they all appear to be fine. I've opened up the flow switch and it also seems fine. Pointed in the correct direction, no visible issues. The flow rate itself is fast - I did try backwashing just to be sure. Made no difference. I'm losing my mind over here.

I should add, earlier in the season did seem to be working but the chlorine output wasn't high enough, even running 24 hours a day on boost. I suspect this flow light has been an issue since the beginning and I just didn't notice it was doing it. What am I missing?

RESOLVED... Finally gave up and called Circupool's customer service. They knew all about the issue and emailed us directions to add a jumper wire to the box. Solved the problem instantly.

Fix emailed to us by Circupool. We didn't have the jumper in the picture, so we just used a standard wire.
