SOURCE: ZODIAC DUOCLEAR 25K DOESN'T FUCTIONING WELL

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.

SOURCE: DuoClear 20 can't get salt light to go out unless

I have a Duoclear 25 for 3 years now. The unit has been nothing but trouble. I too have a low salt light even when the pool is tested at 4500ppm. 4500ppm for our taste is too high. The main board has been replaced for erroneous errors and now one year later the salt cell generator is non functional. The quality is poor. Furthermore most pool stores don't even know how the nature 2 works and alwasy recommend chemicals that are harmful. The company Clearwater has poor customer service.

How to remove the salt cell from the system


turn off pumping system and close flow valves (if present). turn off power to duoclear system. remove the cap from salt electrode (press on). if it is hard to remove, that is good. wiggle it a bit and it will come off. unscrew the retainer ring on electrode. the electrode is now ready to be removed. lift it straight out of the housing. sometimes, the trap door on housing will get stuck in the electrode. this is a real pain. do not force the unit out. you have to take a bent wire and while lifting the electrode out of housing, use the wire to push the door closed (toward the nature2). once this is done, the electrode should lift out easily.

When you tourn on the super chlorinate button, does it turn itself off?


To properly start up the system, add the salt, let circulate for 6 hrs then turn on the generator. running with extremely low salt can damage the unit. you will need a minimum salt reading of 4000 ppm with the duoclear.
when you activate the superchlorinate feature, the electrode will run at 100% for 24 hrs and then revert to the regular programmed level.

I am not an expert on the Duoclear but I have had mine for 5 years and have not had any problems. This unit and all salt water systems will not generate chlorine when the water temperature is below 65 degrees f. I am not saying that this is why yours is not generating chlorine, just commenting in case you were unaware.

Intex Salt Chlorinator - Turns off once set


I had very similar symptoms with my 8110. Part of the circuit monitors the electrolytic plates. If it detects a malfunction it shuts down. On my 8110 I found the following. Perhaps you have a similar issue.

On the circuit board there are two connections that go from the terminal strip to the electrolytic plates. The leads on the terminal strip are quite large and it appears when they originally soldered the terminal strip to the circuit board they did not apply enough heat. Over time the solder connection deteriorated and the connection became very resistive and generated enough heat at the solder joint that it finally failed. I cleaned the terminal strip lead and the corresponding pad on the circuit board and re-soldered the connection. While I was at it I went ahead and re-soldered all of the terminal strip leads.
