Q: does the cell still need to be cleaned and if so how often?

Asked by: Michael Parla - 11/15/2019
A: Yes, all salt cells need to be cleaned eventually. The frequency of cleaning for this cell should be just as much time as your original. The amount of time that actually takes depends on your water chemistry, and on average that could be once ever 6-8 weeks. The LED indicators let you know when though.
