How can I tell if my salt water chlorinator is working properly?
- The easiest way to ascertain if the chlorinator is working is to make sure the cell is clean by checking the needle or production lights.
- Ensure there is enough salt in the pool.
- On the chlorinator box there should be a light or dial that indicates it is working.
- Test the water that water has just left the chlorinator - it should have a very high chlorine reading. (Remember that if it is extremely high it may bleach the test tablet so you may have to dilute the water you are testing). If there is no chlorine reading, the chlorinator will not be working.
- If you have been dosing with chlorine you won’t know. So, wait until you have a nil reading of chlorine and then perform the test.
- Look at your cell housing (if it is visible). The action of the salt water passing over the cell creates gaseous activity. If the water is clear, it’s not creating chlorine. The water passing over the cell should be cloudy.
- Remember less salt = less chlorine. So, check your salt level first
