My apologies. I've gotten attacked here at times for asking questions. I appreciate your help and everyone who tries to help me.I was just trying to ask what was painful with dealing with your pool as you said? We all just want to help
So it sounds like you don't have any kind of separate timer for the SWG? Can you post some pics of your setup and we can make some suggestions. I just use a basic Intermatic timer for my SWG and and pump, so it comes on when the pumps turn on. Can you explain your setup?
I was told by someone else here on the forum that simply using less button doesn't shut it off and it could still cause issues with possible explosion? So I don't know. I'm confused now what the best course of action is.CBs are not built to go through many cycles as an on/off switch. Best way to "turn off" your IC40 is to use the LESS button and lower the SWG % to 0. When you want to turn it on use the MORE button and raise the SWG %.

More and Less Output Buttons
The More and Less buttons control the percentage of the total output capacity that the IntelliChlor SCG is producing while the pump is on (see Sanitizer Output LED indicators above). The lights act as a bar graph: the more lights that are on, the more chlorine is produced. Blinking LEDs represent 2%, 4%, 6%, 8% & 10% while solid LEDs represent 20%, 40%, 60%, 80% and 100%. Slide the panel cover up to access the More, Less and Boost On/Off buttons.
Jim/AJ/mguzzy - Here's pics of my equipment. Its 220 single phase and 110. I appreciate the help. I'm still fairly lost on some things with regards to best practices (like shutting the salt cell off via circuit breaker or just going Less until its 0%). Having a timer that you guys spoke of would be great. Then I could have the salt cell (and heater too, since its connected) shut off safely, right?
