Poolside Chat Episode #41: Salt Chlorine Generator Percentage

7 thoughts on “Poolside Chat Episode #41: Salt Chlorine Generator Percentage

  1. Hi Matthew. I have a problem with my no flow light being continuously lit. We changed the switch, cleaned the filter etc but still lit. Any ideas on what to do next? Am at a loss…

  2. I live in south Florida. I have to run my T9 generator at 90-100 percent to maintain a chlorine level of around 1.6. I run the pump for 10 hrs per day 7am-5pm. Ph-7.4, Alkalinity-100, Hardness-250, Cyan-35. Is my cell to small? Is it ok to run at this percentage all the time? Am I just shortening the life if my cell?

    1. A salt cell has a set amount of chlorine it can produce in its lifetime; the higher the output percentage and the longer it runs, the quicker it will reach that limit and need replacement.

  3. I set my chlorinator to 12 but it keeps randomly spiking to 15 18 and 24 what troubleshooting should I do? This happened after a variable speed pump was installed
