My IntelliChlor IC40 is reading salt levels about 1000 ppm higher that other measurements (salt strip or Taylor Salt test drops).
Is the salt sensor replaceable? If so, what is it's part number?
Unfortunately the salt sensor in no replaceable, check and make sure the rest of your chemicals are within range to verify the required chemical levels, if the salt light is showing red and your actual salt level is within the required range, the cell should be operating properly, for details on water chemistry requirements, please see page 10 in the link below.
Hi There. I think I need to replace my salt chlorinator cell as it is flashing green and I have cleaned the cell 3x without success. I see a Canadian version (520912) and a US version (520555). Is there any difference between the two as there is a price gap. Thanks.
I have the opposite problem as John Becker. My Intellichlor is reading 2600 PPM but strips and electronic meter are both reading in the range of 3700. My intellichem is is doing a good job keeping the pH and ORP in balance. I tried to clean the salt generator earlier this year and scale buildup was not too bad and did not change the salt readings. Should I just ignore the bogus Intellichlor warning?
Gus, What is your water temperature?
Well, it's getting late in the season and the water is only 71 to 73 degrees. Previous normal salt readings during the summer were in the low 80's.

which is best.
Most salt systems use a conductivity measurement to calculate the amount of salt in the water. If the cell is old or dirty it can impact the salt reading and chlorine output. Chemical balance like high total dissolved solids can impact the conductivity of the water and also effect salt readings. My cell died on mine almost a year ago and I ended up switching to a non chlorine system https://oxygenpools.com/ that was about the same price as a replacement cell and has worked great for us.
