ESR - With the "NO FLOW" light on it is more likely that you have low water flow in your system and since you had leaves collect in your cell, there is a good chance that your impeller is clogged. See our guide on " How to Correct Low Water Pressure in Your Pool System -Step 6".

I have a cell (40K gallons) about one year old and I cleaned it with a 50% Water to Muriatic Acid Solution and it came out nice and white. After the recent storm the cell showed red flashing NO FLOW. I opened it and it had some debris (small leaves) which I cleared out and replaced the cell. Now 2 weeks later the red flashing light remains and the cell is clean. Any idea what is happening? The chemicals in the pool show they are balanced and well within the normal/OK range.

pmcd - I have heard that some of these safer cleaning solutions are effective. You may have to soak longer. If it doesn't work, you can always go back to the acid solution.

Instead of muriatic acid would lemon juice, baking soda and water work? We use this with great success when dealing with calcium issues in coffee machines!

Anonymous (Turbo Cell) - I don't think it matters. The real concern is that you don't get any acid on or around the cord.

You're instructions say to screw on the stand with Cord side UP, but the Turbo_T_SERIES_3/201309/07/9667.html">Hayward instructions specifically mention Cord side DOWN. Does it really matter?

Anonymous (acid cleaning) - Thank you for your observation. You are probably right. we should be able to reuse the first batch of acid solution. I will delete the last sentence of Step 15.

After you make the first batch of acid solution and rinse out the cell, it says make another batch of acid solution in step15, why are we doing this?

Anonymous (cloudy water) - Clean your Turbo Cell with an acid solution. Then shock your pool. After shocking, backwash your filter a couple of times. If you have low water flow, check that your pump’s impeller is not clogged. Read this guide on "How To Go From Cloudy To A Crystal Clear Pool" for additional suggestions.

Crispy - The threads on the union rings are not standard - Hayward proprietary. We only sell the complete union and it has different dimensions than those you provided. Don't know why that is but it is the turbo cell union. Here's the link to the 2" Union, Nut & Tail Piece (glx-cell-union)

Crispy  Posted: 05/20/2017 10:01 AM 

All cleaned ok but on reassembling I overtightened the union on one end and the ring part spit. The union looks fairly standard but I can't find one in the store (1 3/4" inside, 3" outside with 8TPI thread. Just need one (actually I can just manage with the ring) All suggestions welcome! Thanks for your help.

Anonymous (acid concentration) - Use 31.45% concentration.

Anonymous  Posted: 05/08/2017 11:56 AM 

Muriatic acid is available in a range of concentrations (e.g. 15%, 20%, or 31%). The 4 to 1 mixing ratio is applicable to what concentration? In other words, what is the preferred concentration of acid in the cleaning solution?

saltG - Use a strap wrench. It applies uniform pressure on the cell so it can turn the cell with more pressure with less chance of breaking the cell. Here is what a strap wrench looks like. They are generic so I would buy it at Lowes for $10 - $20.

I need to clean the salt cell but cannot unscrew the cell? I bought some channellock but it still wont budge. What do you suggest?
