In systems without automatic pool control, Aqua Rite only works when the pool filtration system is running. Switch on the filter pump if not turned on.
Aqua Rite is always on and usually attached to an allotted switch in systems with automation control. Ensure that the switch is not turned on and is placed in the ON section.
If this chlorine generating system power light is still not lit, you can check the fuse on the electronic unit’s bottom (some devices do not have a reachable or handy fuse).
Twist the fuse lid slowly to remove it. When the fuse is noticeably blown, a substituted fuse is glued to the instruction manual lid for you to check, or you can get a similar fuse with the same capacity at any store selling hardware or home improvement gadgets.
Aqua Rite Electronic Chlorine Generator Manual
Aqua Rite is an auto chlorine generator for cleaning pools, and its operation needs a low concentration of sodium chloride in the pool water. These values are pretty low to the extent that they cannot be tasted.
The device will automatically disinfect the swimming pool after converting the sodium chloride into free chlorine, eliminating algae and bacteria from your pool water.
The chlorine will turn back to sodium chloride after decimating bacteria. You’ll only need to add cleaning chemicals to your pool whenever you replace water due to backwashing and draining.
The system can handle the purification process of most residential or personal pools with a capacity of 40,000 gallons of water or the purification needs of most commercial swimming pools of 25,000 gallons of water. The precise amount of chlorine needed to disinfect the pool depends on the temperature, rainfall, and bather load.
This device is not recommended for generating bromine. It operates on 1.50 software versions or is eventually designed to utilize one of the three different cells manufactured by your authorized dealer.
The cells are to be bought separately, and that must be done before the installation. Pick a cell base appropriate for your pool size. Check the following models:
T- CELL-15 for pools with 40,000 gallons capacity
T – CELL-9 for pools with 25,000 gallons capacity
T – CELL-3 for pools with 15,000 gallons capacity
AquaRite Circuit Board Repair
The AqualRite board failure is usually due to sacrificial malfunctioning of the varistor, thermistor, or fault from the fuse made to safeguard the circuit high-power voltage and current spikes that can occur after lightning or other voltage spikes.
Typically, the thermistor secures the circuit at start-up, provides a relatively high resistance at room temperature to constrict “inrush current” and then vanish from the circuit when the current is close to or almost equivalent to the projected current of 25 amps.
It fails when a surge is much greater than the load capacity. Ametherm high-energy thermistors and 2 V150LA2P Varistors are budget-friendly repair kits used to repair the AqualRite circuit board.
These are the best way to restrict power inrush liable to harm other circuit board components when the device is switched on.
Experts recommended opening the cell every three months and visibly inspecting it after cleaning the filtration system to ensure optimum performance.
The device will remind you to take this action by turning on the “Inspect Cell” LED indicator after working for almost 500 hours. After checking the cell (and cleaning if required), press the little “diagnostic button” located near the display for 3 seconds to turn off the “Inspect Cell” LED indicator and begin the device timing for the next 500 hours.
The Aqua Rite electrolytic cell features a self-cleaning function integrated into the electronic control logic. The self-cleaning feature ensures that the cell is operating at optimum efficiency most of the time.
In areas where the water is hard and pools where the water chemistry is “out of control,” the cell may need regular cleaning. The “Check cell” LED indicates if the cell has lost its efficiency and required maintenance.
Aqua Rite Display Board
The AquaRite display board, otherwise called PCB, is the display board for swimming pool chlorine generation systems. The display board clings to the main printed circuit board in the AquaRite chlorine generator power center to show the pool water’s mineral and salt levels.
Aqua Rite Chlorine Generator Reset
You might have been having a problem trying to reset your AquaRite chlorine generator. The following step-by-step guide will help you reset your chlorine generator without stress.
- Press the featured diagnostics button five to show an instant salt level
- Relax and allow the number to settle
- Cycle slide prime switch from the auto chlorinate.
- Switch off the unit to reset and then turn it back to auto
- Wait for like five to seconds for the relay to click.
