Subsequently, question is, what causes a salt cell to fail? Salt cells fail for a few different reasons, the main reason being lack of proper maintenance. It is very important to check the cell regularly for excessive buildup. Use a cleaning kit designed for salt cells to keep the plates clear of buildup. Another common cause of salt cell failure is improper water balance.

What should my salt generator be set at?

We suggest you start your salt chlorine generator at 50 percent output and run it for a couple of days, then check the chlorine level. In a balanced pool, a good chlorine level is 1-3 parts per million. If your chlorine levels are low, you can raise the percentage, and if it’s high you can lower the percentage.

What temperature does a Salt Cell stop working?

The salt cell generators are made to work when pool water temperatures are above 60 degrees. In pool water temperatures that are 60 degrees or below, the salt generators simply shut down and by design do not allow the salt cell to ionize (breakdown) the salt and convert it to chlorine.

How do you clean a salt cell without a stand?

If you do not have a cell stand, carefully place the cell in a plastic bucket and add the acid wash solution until the plates are covered. Make sure not to cover the cell electrical connections. Again, let the unit soak for 15 minutes. After the soak, rinse the cell again with a garden hose.

How do I fix high salt in my pool?

Drain and Refill Try draining about six inches of water from the pool and refilling with fresh water. Turn on the pool pump to circulate the water, and retest the salt levels. If you’re still at a higher salt level than you prefer, drain another six inches and refill with fresh water again.
