We have a Pentair pool and spa system that includes an EasyTouch control panel and an Intellichlor IC40 salt system. The circuit breaker for the Intellichlor salt system keeps tripping and the salt cell has no power. Does this mean the salt cell is bad and is there anything else I should look at before ordering a costly replacement cell? Thank you!
If you have a voltmeter you can measure the DC voltage going to the cell. Normally about 35 VDC if higher or lower you would need to replace the cell.
Is there a generic option
We currently do not carry a generic salt cell for this model.
How do you increase the sanitizer output. There are buttons that say less/ more but they don’t work. Is there a trick? Mine is a 2% and like to increase a little... if possible
Hi, Stacey. Using the Less/More Buttons will increase or decrease chlorine productions. If the buttons are not responding, then there is an issue with the unit.
My IC40 salt cell is approximately 2.5 years old and none of the lights are coming on
Hi. You will need to check the Power Center, the Transformer or the Fuse.
If I have an IntelliTouch power center, I can just wire the IC40 to it without having to buy the IntelliChlor powercenter, correct?
You would need to confirm your specific Intellitouch model. Only certain models already have the power center in it for adding on an Intellichlor.
Could you please clarify your answer to Casey? I have the same question. Flow in the top and out the bottom. Why is the replacement cell showing a reversed flow? Please advise
Hi, Joe. The flow switch is now located on the bottom of the controller. I'm not sure why the design was changed.
It appears that the controls are upside down compared to my old cell. Is there a way to get one with the flow coming in from the top and having the controls legible. Mine is mounted vertical
Hi, Casey. There is not a way to this cell is a different orientation.
You're showing the IC20 and IC40 as having the same dimensions. Is this correct? If so, one can upgrade from the IC20 to the IC40 without doing any piping modifications? I run the IC20 max and it has a hard time keeping up (even when new), I'm always having to supplement with CL.
Yes, you can upgrade your cell with no modifications.
I've read the reviews and responses can you please clarify the warranty on this unit. One response says 60 days the other says 1 year. Thank you very much for the assistance.
These replacement cells are under warranty for one year.
I want to acid clean the blades on my intelichlor ic20 but can't find the right sized end cap to seal one end. Can antone tell me the proper size? A 2" cap is too small and a 3" cap is too big.
Bob, If you have the Intellichlor cell, you will need the Intellichlor Acid Cleaning Kit.
What's the best way to clean the cell?
Mix one quart of muriatic acid with one gallon of tap water in a plastic five (5) gallon bucket. Always add acid to the water, never add water to the acid. Always wear eye protection and use rubber gloves. Always work in a well-ventilated areaPlace the cell vertically in the bucket with the cap end down, as shown in right side illustration. Carefully pour the acid solution (as described above) into the cell until the blades are just covered. Allow the acid solution to bubble, and to clean the blades. The acid should only be contained in the cell and not around it. A foaming action will begin, which is caused by scale being dissolved from the plates. If rigorous foaming action does not begin, the cell does not need to be cleaned.

Hi Is theintellichlor chlorine Generator IC 40 is the same for the salt generator , because salt generator is cheapor
The IC40 is a salt chlorine generator system.
How often do I need to replace this. The needs salt light stays on even after adding salt and its only 4 years old.
The life span on these cells varies from 1 to approximately 5 years. Time it is being used and chemistry play a big role
I have an IC40, about 3.5 years old. The Green Cell light is flashing. I cleaned it and after start up the cell light stays solid green for 3 mins then starts flashing again. I cleaned it two more times (last two times no bubbling,so cell was clean) and after each cleaning same result. Cell light on solid green for 3 min then starts flashing. Does the cell need to be replaced or is there something else i can check? thanks
Hi, Marko. Based on what you've described the cell has run its course and will need to be replaced.
my replacement IC40 came in with a peace of plastic in the end where the cord is. my other one did not have this. should i take that out before i install it?? it will slide out its not connected.
Hi, I'm not exactly sure what you're referring to, you can contact Pentair at 800.831.7133 or if the plastic piece does not prevent you from plugging the cell into the power supply then it should not be a problem.

What is the Pentair Intellichlor Dummy Cell used for?
The Dummy cell is basically a cell with no internal parts, this cell is used during cleaning of the real cell. So when you remove the real cell for cleaning you would put the dummy cell in place of the real cell. After you have finished cleaning the real cell you would remove the dummy cell from the plumbing and place the real cell back in place.
