I purchased a Pentair Intellicholr Salt Generator replacement cell. Does this unit require a Power Cell??
Danny on Mar 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes it does require a power cell. You can use your old power cell if you just needed to replace the Salt Generator and you know your old power cell is working properly.
There is power to the power center and the fuse is good but, there are no lights on the cell. Been working for 2 months and now, no lights. System is 3 months old. Do you have any idea what it may be?
David K on May 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: May want to pull the power cord from Cell to the Power Center , it has a rounded connector that inputs at bottom of power center my have pulled out a little. If you power coming out of Center then it would most likely be the cell. Open up Power center and put a meter on the connectors leading out of box on rounded connector. BE CAREFUL and take it for what it is worth I run a trucking company but spent many hours working on my system.
Will this separate unit come with wires & connections necessary to connect to the chlorinator?
Dusty H on Sep 6, 2021
BEST ANSWER: The chlorinators come with the cable to connect to the Power Center, you have to supply the 110 wire to the Power Center and the wire nuts come with the power center.
Fuse blows when replacing it 6month old?
A shopper on Feb 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Should still be under warranty. I would contact Pentair and have them send you out a new one.
How many cells can be run on one power center?
Hugh b on Aug 7, 2021
BEST ANSWER: I believe you can only run 1 cell on 1 power center
No lights burning?
Lanny W on Jul 27, 2021
BEST ANSWER: You need to check the wiring voltage input to box, make sure you are wired right in the center check the wire nuts, if the is all good then the center is not working replace
is the Pentair IntelliChlor Power Center Only for use with IC20, IC40, & IC60P Salt Cells | 520556 the same as a intellichlor chlorine generator power center?
A shopper on May 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It is only for the salt cells it will not work on other kinds of salt cells
Just replaced the Cell. All lights are working. Appears to be functioning properly, but it is not generating chlorine. Any suggestions?
Andy S on Nov 8, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Have you had the salt level checked? The low salt light should be on but I’d double check it.
My power center keep blowing fuses. What could be wrong?
A shopper on Jul 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I had the same problem. After replacing fuses a dozen times I replaced the power center and it worked - for 12 hours. They “determined” since the power center was brand new it was either A - a bad new power center or B - a bad salt cell. I never knew a bad cell would keep blowing the fuses. They replaced the new power. Enter with a model that doesn’t use fuses and put in the next higher level salt cell. Problem solved. But was expensive except that the new power center was under warranty. So short version, if I had to do again I’d replace the salt cell and if it keeps happening then replace the power center.
Just purchased a new cell. All the lights are working and it appears to be funtioning properly, but the unit doesnt seem to be producing Chlorine. Any suggestions?

Glad It Is Sold Separately
I have owned the Pentair IntelliChlor IC40 For the last 10 years and I finally had to replace the power source this season. I was pleased that I could purchase the power center by itself. It arrived quickly and my electrician installed it in about 30 minutes. Now everything works perfectly again!
