  1. Have salt level checked and adjust to 0.5%
  2. It is normal for the "CHECK SALT" light to come on at low water temperatures (<15°) even if salt concentration is 0.5% and this is not a fault.
    Set the "CHLORINE OUTPUT" control to 80% or lower if water temperature is <15°.

  1. Damaged cell cables.
  2. Cell cables are disconnected.
  3. Very low salt level.
  4. Cell requires replacing.
  1. Replace cell cables.
     
  2. Reconnect cables.
     
  3. Check salt level and adjust to 0.5%.
  4. Replace cell.

  1. Gas in cell or no water flow.
  2. Flow/gas sensor is disconnected.
  3. Cable damaged.

     
     
     
  1. Locate cause of low or no water flow and rectify.
  2. Reconnect flow/gas sensor.
     
  3. Repair sensor cable.

PROBLEM

POSSIBLE CAUSE

Chlorine Residual
Low or Nil
• Insufficient running times
• pH too high or low
• Strong sunlight and low conditioner levels
• Poor circulation
• Heavy bather loading
• Low chlorine production
Chlorine Production
Low or Nil
• Low salt levels
• Scale build up on the cell
• Faulty circulation
• Algacide addition within the last 2 to 3 weeks
• Cell leads incorrectly connected
• Debris levels in the pool too high
• Cell too old and worn out
Chlorine Levels High in
Mornings and low at Night


• Heavy bather loadings
• Extreme sunlight conditions
• Insufficient pool conditioner levels
pH Alters Rapidly and Easily

• A low total alkalinity level in Marblesheen, pebble or tiled pools
• Contamination with debris especially urine could be another cause

Poor Circulation

• Dirty and clogged filter
• Hair and link baskets full of leaves at the skimmer boxes or pump
• Faulty pump
• Water level is low or cell is clogged with scale

Short Intervals Between
Backwashes

• Ineffective backwashing
• Body fat or oil build-up on pads. With Diatomaceous earth filters the cause may be insufficient diatomaceous earth over the pads
Cloudy Water
• Insufficient filtration times
• Holes in the filter pads
• High pH
• Pool walls need brushing
• Main drain not working
• Algacides have been added in the last few weeks, or
• Bather load too great for filtration and chlorine times
Low Salt Level
• The result of splash out by bathers
• Heavy overflow from rain or accidental filling of the pool
• Topping up because of pool leaks or from excessive backwashing
Appearance of Stains
• Low chlorine levels
• High pH levels
• Poor circulation
• Infrequent brushing of the pool walls
• Incorrect total alkalinity
Algae Formation and High Chlorine Levels
• The pH is over 7,4 or
• The pool conditioner level is too high
Frequent Cell Cleaning
• Hard bore waters being used
• Incorrect total alkalinity levels in marblesheen, pebble or tiled or heated pools
• pH levels may also be too high
• Prior to the CHLORINATOR and currently, are you still adding powered chlorine?
