Why is the “Power LED” not on?
Why is the filter pump not running?
Why is the “Generating” LED not on?
Why is the “No Flow” LED illuminated?
The Aqua Trol has sensed a no flow condition and has stopped generating chlorine. Check that the flow switch is plugged into the connector on the bottom of the control unit and that the wire is not cut or damaged. If there is adequate flow and the LED is still on, check that the arrows on the flow switch (on top of hex) are pointing in the direction of flow.
Why is the “Test Salt Level” LED illuminated/flashing?
Why is the “High Salt” LED illuminated?
Why is the “Inspect Cell” LED flashing?
Why is the “Inspect Cell” LED illuminated?
Why is there little or no free chlorine residual?
- Aqua Trol switch in OFF position
- Desired Level % adjustment setting is too low
- Low stabilizer (Cyanuric Acid)
- Filter pump switched off or filter pump time too short ( 8 hours for average size pool, more for large pools)
- Salt level too low (below 2500 ppm, Low Salt LED on)
- Salt level too high (High Salt LED on)
- Very warm pools increase chlorine demand- increase Desired Level % or filter run time.
- Cold water (below 50F) causes Aqua Trol to stop generating (Generating LED flashing).
- Excessive scaling on cell.
- High level of Nitrogen in pool water.
- “Yellow Out” or similar treatment recently used. Some yellow algae treatments will use chlorine at a very high rate and deplete the residual free chlorine. Manually shock the pool if indicated in the directions of the algae treatment. It still may be a matter of days before the pool returns to “normal” and chlorine tests will show the desired 1-3 ppm free chlorine reading.
