Still Getting High Salt/Amps Warning

Hello, I've read the whole thread about the Chlorinator Off High Salt/Amps message that appears on Hayward Aqua Logic controllers. I first discovered this thread a couple years ago, and was able to re-solder the K1 unit contact in place, and also replaced the fuse with a 15a as it was blown too. Has worked for last 2 years with no issues. I got the message again last week, so pulled the unit apart again and the fuse was blown again. Replaced the fuse and decided to re-solder the K1 again even though it looked fine from my first repair. Controller worked 2-3 days, but now it's giving me the same message and not producing chlorine. Wondering if it's time for replacement, or is there some other issue at work here? If I need to replace, is it just replacing that motherboard, or do I need to replace the whole controller unit with a newer version? Not sure what the current units are named. Would love a rough estimate of what it costs these days to have someone replace a salt controller. Thanks in advance.

Your Aqualogic uses the GLX-PCB-MAIN board.


has this note...

If your system has a "heater button" at the power center then you can use the GLX-PCB-PRO circuit board instead of replacing it with this one. Doing this will upgrade your system to a ProLogic from your existing AquaLogic. Heater button on the local display (mounted on Subpanel)


@JamesW can help you with diagnostics.

Thanks, you mean like this? Both of my panels have a heater button. Is the Prologic system less prone to this error occurring? Any other advantages to updating to Prologic?

Tried a bunch of different places and no one has the PCB-PRO board in stock. Wondering if there is some other fix I can try? When i opened it back up the fuse was not bad this time. I did find a PCB-MAIN board, but would love to fix temporarily and upgrade to the other board when available. And secondly wondering if anyone has experience with Salt Solutions Inc reparing motherboards?
