If you have a Dig-36 or Mineral Springs Digital Saltwater Chlorinator, one of the most common errors is a ‘Low Amps’ message.
This is typically a sign that the cell and cell cable have or are close to expiring.
Here are the steps to check the salt cell functionality:
Phase 1: CHEMICALLY clean the cell – pay special attention to the inside when it is cleaned. Inspect the blades and make sure they are all the same length and colour.
Phase 2: Check the power level the unit is set to (it should be power level 3 for this testing).
– press menu; scroll up to installer menu; press and hold select (for more than a minute or so until you are allowed into the menu); scroll to cell power; press select; scroll so that the cell power is at 3; press select; exit the menu
Phase 3: Check the amps.
- Turn your unit to 100%.
- Wait for 30 minutes.
- Press the menu button.
- Scroll to the test pool pilot menu.
- Press select.
- Allow the testing to scroll through. Pay special attention to the AMPS reading. The higher the number, the better.
- The amps should be higher than 4. If the amps are reading lower than 4, replace the cell and cell cable. (or have the service department do a full diagnostic – simply follow the link below).
