During normal operation a white calcium scale will build up on the plates of the electrolytic cell within your jandy aquapure ei salt generator. The cell operates most efficiently when the cell is clean so the manufacturer recommends checking your cell for scale monthly and cleaning the cell as required. This guide describes how to access and clean a Jandy AquaPure Ei cell.

Tips & Warnings

Things You'll Need

Step by Step

Step 1

Check the scale buildup on your cell plates. This buildup will be visible without taking your cell apart. A little scale buildup is normal. If the buildup is excessive on the plates or debris has passed though the filter and collected in the cell, the cell must be cleaned.

Step 2
