It is important to inspect and clean your salt cell regularly. Ensure you are chemically cleaning it as required to extend the life of the cell.
- Remove the cell by loosening the unions to release.
- Flush the cell using a garden hose and spray nozzle attachment to remove and loose or excessive debris
- Pour the cleaning solution into a clean, empty ‘polyethylene’ vessel or use a #10 expandable plug to cap one end of the cell. Place the cell vertically with the plug side down in a plastic container. Pour the cell cleaner directly into the cell.
- Immerse the cells into the solution, ensuring there is adequate product to completely cover the entire blade surface.
- Foaming will be very evident as the solution works to remove the debris from the blade surface. This is natural and will subside after a few minutes.
- Soak the cell for 20 minutes (or as required on the back package directions of your chosen cell cleaner).
- Remove the cell from the solution and rinse with fresh water and inspect for cleanliness.
- Heavily scaled cells may require a second application with fresh cleaning solution.
- DO NOT try to remove any deposits from the cell with tools. This may scratch or damage the coating on the blades and will VOID the WARRANTY.
- Don’t forget to maintain ideal saline chemistry with monthly water samples at the Aqua-Tech water lab and regularly scheduled applications of Mineral Springs Renewal or the Pristiva Salt Pool Care System – protect your system and keep the water looking clear and feeling soft .
- Clean the caretaker screen regularly—this is a common cause of a check flow reading. On the cell bypass assembly, look for the sticker that says “Clean Union Screen Regularly”.
