I had my pool at 2800 and everything is working fine (generating light on, no check cell or salt light on) - which i know is low and was going to add more salt. I then check it on mon morning and it drops to 1600; I added two bags last night and got it up to a whopping 2000! I will add two more bags and keep piecemealing until i get it to 3000 but why the sudden drop?
Salt Level Dropping

Hello Suzanne - Unless you've drained water and refilled, your salt level should not have dropped. Have you cleaned the cell lately?
When a salt cell is starting to go bad, it will send incorrect readings back to the control box.
I have not cleaned the cell but will do that first and will then get a read prior to putting salt in the pool. thank you
Update - I was able to clean the cell and add more salt to pool; all is good. We are registered at 3200 for a 30k gallon pool. Thank you for your guidance. Our cell is going on 4 years so I am wondering if this is the last year for it. Thank you for your guidance!
We're glad to hear it is working properly again. The average lifespan is 3-5 years but it could last longer if the cell is not being used all year long or if it was oversized for the pool.
