The Hayward Aqua Riie Main Printed Circuit Board (PCB) is the heart of your salt system. Without it, your system will no longer sanitize your pool effectively. In most cases, the Aqua Rite Main PCB will fail due to an electrical surge, lightning, or a brownout. PureLine has developed a new board to replace the original Hayward Aqua Rite Main PCB at a substantially lower price. This guide will show you how easy it is to replace the Hayward main PCB with a PureLine main PCB.
CHECK COMPATIBILITY - The PureLine PC Board is a replacement for your original Goldline Control Hayward Aqua Rite PC Board. It is compatible with most Aqua Rite control panels or models with a couple of limitations. The PureLine PC board will not link with any automatic control system your pool system may currently have. If you need full control to your automatic control system, we recommend you purchase the OEM Hayward Aqua Rite PC board. Also the PureLine PC Board is only compatible with the Aqua Rite T-CELL-15 and T-CELL-9 Systems. Please refer to the compatibility section of the PureLine Replacement Aqua Rite Main PCB User's Manual if you have any other compatibility concerns.
COMPARE PCBs - A comparison of the new and old main PCBs will show a slight difference in how the components are laid out. We will explain any impacts in installation when we step through the process. Impacts are minor.
ATTACH SET 1 OF CONTROL WIRES - Attach the red and black control wires first. On the original PCB, you'll notice that the red and black wires were a little bit higher in the upper right-hand corner. They moved then down slightly on the new PCB. The red wire is attached to the terminal closest to the PCB's edge.
INSTALL JUMPERS - Before we connect the power lines, we need to add jumper(s) to configure the system for either 230V or 115V. For 230V, place a single jumper between the two middle screws, two and three. For 115V, you will need to install two jumpers, one between terminals one and two, and one between three and four. Since we are configuring this system for 115V, we will add two jumpers. The original PCB had labels one through four. The new board does not. If there is any confusion, the wiring instructions are on the inside door of your control unit.
INSERT DISPLAY BOARD - The four holes at the corners of the display PCB will be placed on the four plastic prongs coming up from the main PCB. As you are placing the display PCB, make sure that the display window is position at the top of the main PCB. Press the display PCB on until you feel it snap into place.
DISPLAY CELL SIZE - There are a couple more steps you have to do when you get a new board. The first thing will be to input your cell size. If you don’t know your cell size you can actually look on the side of your cell and in our case it's a T-Cell-15. Now you have to press the diagnostics button eight times until you see the cell size appear. We are currently set up for cell size" t-3"
READY TO GO - With the above changes, your Hayward Aqua Rite SCG with its newly installed PureLine main PCB should be fully functional.
