Phil,

How old is the cell?

I've only heard of the Inspect Cell light on when the cell was bad.

What is the water temperature in you area?

Phil,

I would not think the flow switch would cause the check cell light... is the flow light red??

How old is the cell in years?

Phil,

The reason I ask is because with a 35K pool you would have to run the IC60 pretty hard to generate the chlorine you need. In theory it could generate about 7 ppm when running at 100% 24/7.

So half of that would be 3.5 ppm at 100% for 12 hours a day.

What does your actual experience with it tell you? How long do you run the SWCG each day and at what % in the real world?

Thanks,

Jim R.

Phil,

Did you run the test where you hold the more button down that tells you if the thermistor in the flow switch assembly is ok or not???

What is the salinity?

If the salinity is low and the water is cold, you can get a check cell light.

The cell was made 12-2017.
When I press and hold the "more" button, 30% light comes on.
Run it 4 hours in the Winter and 21 hours in the Summer.
The salinity is 3000 ppm and water is 61 degrees.

It's probably under warranty. I would probably file a claim for replacement.

I don't think that there is a 30% light?

Raising the salinity to 3,500 to 3,800 might help.

How are you measuring salinity?

When was the cell actually installed?

Warmer water would probably help as well.

If 3,800 ppm salinity works, you might get through the summer with warmer water.
