Salt Chlorine Generators
Pentair 520554 IntelliChlor IC20 Salt Chlorine Generator Cell (US Version)
How long does a Pentair IntelliChlor cell last?
The Pentair IntelliChlor chlorination system uses a cell to generate chlorine from salt. The cell will last approximately 3-5 years with proper maintenance. To extend the life of the cell, it is important to follow the manufacturer’s recommended cleaning and storage procedures.
Can I replace IC20 with IC40?
As a general rule, you can replace an IC with a higher-rated one of the same type. For example, you can replace an IC20 with an IC40. However, there are some exceptions to this rule. First, check the datasheets for both the old and new ICs to make sure that their pinouts are compatible. If the pinouts are not compatible, you will need to modify your circuit accordingly. Secondly, make sure that the new IC can handle the same voltage and current as the old one. If not, you may need to adjust your power supply or other components in your circuit. Finally, keep in mind that replacing an IC with a higher-rated one may affect the performance of your circuit in other ways. For example, if you are replacing an amplifier IC, the new one may have different gain or bandwidth than the old one. As always, be sure to experiment and test your circuit thoroughly before putting it into use.
What is the average life of a Pentair salt cell?
Pentair salt cells are designed to last for many years with proper care and maintenance. On average, a Pentair salt cell will last between 5 and 7 years. However, there are several factors that can affect the lifespan of a salt cell, such as water quality, frequency of use, and how well the cell is maintained. With proper care and maintenance, your Pentair salt cell can provide you with many years of trouble-free operation.
Why is my Pentair IntelliChlor IC20 cell light flashing?
If your Pentair IntelliChlor IC20 cell light is flashing, there are a few possible reasons why. First, it could be an indication that the salt level in the pool is low and needs to be refilled. Second, the cell might need to be replaced if it is more than three years old. Third, the power supply could be interrupted or the flow rate could be too low, which would cause the light to flash. If you have checked these things and the light is still flashing, please contact Pentair customer service for further assistance.
