When To Replace The Electrode Chamber In A Pool System
How to know when to replace the electrode chamber in a pool system:
Things can cause damage to the electrode chamber:
- Leaving the chamber outside in the winter - if there is moisture in the chamber it can crack or shatter.
- When replacing electrodes, if the electrode screws are turned too tightly it can crack the chamber.
- When taking the chamber out of the plumbing line, if the union ends are tight, forcing them to turn by hand may crack the chamber (use a strap wrench to prevent cracking).
Generally when you see water dripping from the chamber, you probably need to change it.
