They are actually the most accurate and reliable, as well as simple, form of leveling. water will always seek to be level, while laser levels and other types can have calibrating errors

Installed new t-cell and it still says salt level is zero, but the t-cell trips out on high salts,amps. What is the problem?

Depending on the water temperature the actual salt level reading can be inaccurate.

If the water temp is below 65 the reading will sometimes show a lower salt level than the actual level.

Did you recalibrate the power center?

Have you tested the salt level independently?

I would first test the water or have it tested, many pool stores offer this service for free.
It helps to have an accurate reading and not rely on salt test strips.

Once you know the actual salt level you can attemptrecalibrate the system and see what reading you get.

For an aqua rite system you flip the toggle to super chlor, to off and back to auto , wait 5-10 seconds you will hear a click then press the button next to the display , tI'll you see the salt level calibrating.

My Frigidaire FFBD2406NB7B dishwasher stops mid cycle, high temp and heat dry lights are flashing, does not drain completely.

Hi Vince!

Your owners manual should tell you what that pair of flashing lights mean, but I suspect it is because the system that detects water level has become clogged with debris and the DW is telling you it refuses to proceed without an accurate water level reading.

Level measurement systems vary but are usually in a float chamber on the side of the unit. Search for an "exploded" view (usually available at part supplier sites) for more 411.

What is the difference between a spirit level and a water level?

A spirit level looks like a really thick ruler with a small tube with liquid in it and the bubble in the liquid is used to make sure that the line between two points is level. A water level on the other hand is a contraption made of tubing and water that works like a poor mans level. You hold the water to the height that you want and then make sure that both ends of the tubing are level before moving on. While this method is said to be more accurate some people are more comfortable with a spirit level.

I have a simpson eziset 550 5.5kg washer when filling at the start of the cycle it over fills and floods is it a timer or water level sensor problem?

I had this same issue with my Eziset 500 and fixed it myself. Behind the level switch there was a vacuum pipe that went along the back of the washing machine (rear cover removed to gain access) that went to the water level sensor. I had found the vacuum hose had rubbed through causing a vacuum leak. I simply masking taped it up as i was too lazy to walk into my garage and get a new hose and hasn't had an issue since (fingers crossed). I will eventually get around to repairing it properly one day though :)

There does not seem to be enough water in machine to wash with

This problem could have a number of different causes. Unless it is a machine specifically designed to operate at reduces water levels, the likely cause is that the sensor that determines how much the machine fills up is somewhat blocked or going bad. The blockage would prevent accurate sensing of the water level. See the explanation below:
The level sensor uses a pressure switch to detect the water level in the tub.
Water level control switch
This switch controls how high the tub fills with water.
Water level control switch plumbing
The big end of the hose connects to the bottom of the tub, while the small end connects to the switch. As the water level in the tub rises, water rises in the hose also; but the air in the hose is trapped, so as the water rises, the air is compressed.
Inside the water level control switch
Inside the housing of this switch is a little piston. The pressure in the hose pushes the piston up. When it is raised far enough, it pops up and closes an electrical contact. This set point, where the contact is lost, is adjustable, and in the picture you can see the cam mechanism that is connected to the adjuster knob on the control panel of the washer. As the cam turns, it presses a spring against the cylinder, making it harder for the cylinder to pop up. This means that the water level will have to rise some more before the pressure in the hose will be high enough to trigger the switch.

Water fill is not accurate sounds like water level switch. Would this also cause the rinse cycle to not fill?

Yes, the water level switch is likely faulty and not calling for water when it needs to. Replace the water level switch and blow backwards through the hose to be sure it is clear.

I have 8 holes on the ground to be filled with concrete to hold 8 posts, how can I make them all on one exact level?, the yard ground is uneven

Hi there,

I posted a bid earlier claiming to have the answer to your problem. I do. I don't like the way they set this system up, so I'm going to give you the info .

What you need is called a water level. It is essentially a long clear hose with water in it. with the ends held sky ward, the water level at each of those ends is exactly the same. One end is in a fixed position, the level marked on both ends. the other goes to each of the other locations. This way you can accurately get level references at distances, over rough terrain and even around corners.

I hope this helps

My danby fills and immediately drains.

Hi, It sounds like the drain hose has dropped lower then the water level in the washer. Check and see if the hose end is as high as the top of the washer.
I hope this helps you.
