The single plug Compupool Salt Chlorine Generator Cell Cable has been replaced with a three plug Cell Cable to provide tighter connections to the three prongs on the end of the cell. If your old Cell Cable Plug does not fit tightly on the end of the Cell or you are seeing erroneous messages on your display, it may be time to replace your Cell Cable with a new three plug Cell Cable. This guide shows you step by step how to replace the Cell Cable on your Compupool Salt Chlorine Generator.
ORDER PARTS - Before starting this installation you will have to order the New Cell Cord for your Compupool Salt Chlorine Generator. This cord comes in two lengths, 6 ft and 15 ft. Note: The clear cup and locking ring shown here only come with a new cell. They are not available in the new cell cable replacement kit. Use the old locking ring. The three terminals are designed to operate in adverse weather conditions without the clear cup. For a new cell cord replacement without the clear cup, ignore all steps 4 through 15 except steps 10 and 11. Basically take the old cell plug off, and attach the three new plugs onto the cell terminals.
TURN OFF POWER - Turn off all power to the Compupool Salt Chlorine Generator and pump. If possible turn the power off at the circuit breaker. Make sure power is OFF and cannot be accidentally turned on while you are changing the cell cord. This is 240V. If you are unfamiliar with electricity, have an electrician help you with the electrical changes.
CONNECT WIRES - Combine the two black and red wires from the Cell Cord with the two wires connected to the panel. First twist the ends of each of the wires clockwise to make a tighter bundle of the braided wire. Then place the like colored wire together (black to black and red to red) and place a Spring Connector over each set and turn clockwise. Pull on each wire to ensure they are connected tightly.
