HotSpring Spa Ace Cell for Ace Salt Water System 76078 Hot Spring Watkins
Replacement Cell for the Ace salt water system for Hot Spring and Limelight Hot tubs.
Occasionally people ask us why they have to replace their Ace Cells more often than they like. Ideally, a cell will last 5-7 years, but some of our customers have complained about them lasting as little as 18 months. This piece of equipment is extremely sensitive to water chemistry, so if you follow a few simple steps, you will get the most out of your replacement cell.
If you live in an area that has hard water, it can affect the way your cell performs. Be sure to use stain and scale control regularly to keep it working well.
Make sure your ph and alkalinity are in the acceptable ranges. Low ph can be corrosive. High ph can result in scale, which affects the cell's performance. Ph should be between 7.4 and 7.6. Alkalinity should be between 100 and 120. Check regularly, because the chemicals you put in your spa can sometimes affect the ph. Usually ph and alkalinity are either both high or both low and the products designed to increase them or decrease them will work on both. But it is important to check both, because occasionally, they will be out of sync, and while lowering your ph you can be lowering alkalinity that is already too low.
