Question about Zodiac Duo Clear System Chlorine Generator
NEW ISTALLED ZODIAC DUOCLEAR SALT CHLORINATOR WITH THE FOLLOWING PROBLEMS:
1. THE SWITCHES ON THE CONTROL BOARD DO NOT FUNCTION
2. I CAN'T SWITCH ON/OFF THE POWER
3. I CAN'T MAKE SUPER CHLORINATION
4. THE LIGHTS FOR REPLACING THE CARTRIDGE ARE ALL ON DESPITE THE FACT THAT IS NEW (2 MONTHS OLD)
I have the zodiac duoclear system and have used it for nearly two years. All in all, it's a very good system. I have had similiar issues on occassion. Have you tried the master reset button on the lower right hand face of the control board? I've been able to clear up the lights by resetting the system.
If the salt content in the pool is not correct, the system will not allow you to superchlorinate. Your salt level should be at 4000 ppm. The add salt light is programmed to come on if the system gets below 3600 ppm. When the system is below 4000 ppm, it is unable to generate the chlorine needed. The lower the salt, the less you can chlorinate. Might not be your problem, but I've run into this before too.
The lights for replacing your cartridge puzzle me. I'm making an assumption that your pool is probably dirty if you're trying to superchlorinate. The dirtier the water, the faster the electrode in the cartridge will get covered in scale from the current and conversion process. Try cleaning the new cartridge by placing it in a bucket with a 75% water and 25% muratic acid mix. Let it soak for a few minutes and gently swirl it around in the mixture. This will clean the contacts in the cartridge.
Keys with the Duoclear system: Salt content and clean the filters regularly. Don't know if this will solve your problem or not, but good luck.
