Thomas J on Aug 29, 2018
My light is flashing green which means inspect cell took the cell off and acid cleaned it like my pool guy told me to, put it back on and it doesn't flash for a few minutes then it goes back to flashing. What do I do now that, that didn't work?
Tim H on Jun 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Mine did that and I had to buy a new one.
I have the IC40, the lights flash on boost constantly an won't let it reset to a percent. What is the issue?
A shopper on Apr 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: turn power off completely to the salt cell, then unplug the salt cell from the transformer, wait a short bit...plug it back in....then turn the power back on to the unit, hopefully it will re-set
Does this kit work on an IC20?
Ken M on Oct 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I purchased the special cap (cleaning kit) at same time As a new cell. It works great and has very good instyfor how to mix acid and cleaning etc.
how do i know if i need a new cell?
A shopper on Aug 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You would need a new cell if the indicator lights do not light and you no longer have evidence of chlorine production. But, first check connections to see if that might be a problem. Another possible problem is that the cell does not produce chlorine when the temperature is below a certain degree in the winter. If the cell is corroded clean it as directed. You may need to clean it more than once however it is important not to leave immersed in the acid mixture for too long. The cell is built well and mine has been producing chlorine for at least eight years with maintenance. Good luck!
how do i clean the cell? cap off one end and soak it with muratic acid?
A shopper on Mar 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I wear eye protection and rubber gloves. I take off the cell and use a plastic cap and rubber and seal one side. I then mix a small amount of water in a plastic bucket with the muric acid. I then pour the mix into the cell right to the top letting the acid bubble. I leave for ten minutes. Then I empty and reinstall. Easy

Nothing fancy but it does the job
Works as advertised. Not sure how you would clean the Pentair Intelichlor without it. Comes with everything you need to acid clean your chlorinator. This is a must have.
