Cell Cleaning Instructions for Ezyclean Cell
- CONNECTION AND DISCONNECTION OF THE CELL TO THE POWER PACK
The cell is connected via low voltage grey power cable to the terminal box of the power pack.
The cell wires must be connected polarity correct for the cell to work.
The brown lead is connected to the brown or red (positive lead) in the terminal box.
The blue lead is connected to the blue or or black (negative lead) in the terminal box.
The white or centre gas sensing wire on the cell is connected to the centre terminal in the terminal box only if one is present - otherwise disregard. (Usually for Power Packs older than 10 Years.)
Make sure the Terminals are kept tight and dry for efficient operation.
Please Note: Not all models have Timeclocks or Socket outlets
- CLEANING THE EZYCLEAN CELL
Unplug the Brass Connector at the Top of the Cell Head.
Unscrew the Top Barrel Nut from the Top of the cell.
Gentle Twist the Cell Head and Pull the centre electrode out from the Casing.
Simply Scrape the Electrode clean with a Plastic of metal device or use a piece of 32mm PVC Plastic pipe and run this up the Electrode to remove all deposits.
If the Cell is heavily encrusted with Calcium Deposits and both Electrodes are built up. Replace the Center Electrode back in place after cleaning and Unscrew the bottom barrel nut and remove the entire Cell from the pipe work.
With the cell assembled and completely removed from the pipe work, place the cell upside down into a bucket and follow the directions below for cleaning the cell with a DILUTE solution of acid.
IN A PLASTIC OR GLASS CONTAINER, dilute one part Hydrochloric (muriatic) acid with ten parts of tap water (Hot Tap Water is more efficient)
WHEN MIXING, ADD ACID TO WATER, NOT WATER TO ACID and DO NOT MIX ACID AND WATER IN THE CELL.
Do not immerse the cell electrodes in a strong acid solution, as it may shorten the cell life and damage the electrodes.
Pour the dilute acid mixture into the cell.
When the effervescing stops inspect the cell and if still calcified up repeat the process.
Rinse cell with water and Insert into the pipe work when finished.
FOR SOFT DEPOSITS - Try Hosing out the Cell with a strong jet of Water. This will usually clean the cell sufficiently and cell cleaning with acid may be avoided.
To keep the Cell deposits soft add 3 - 10 Kg of Magnesium Sulphate (Epsom Salts) to the pool water every 6 Months.
