We had a saltwater chlorine generator system installed on our pool. The guy who installed it declined to connect the controller box (Intellichlor is the brand) until we replace the pump timer. The timer is an old-school mechanical one, and he says it’s making noise. Well, yeah, spinning gears and wheels tend to be audible. He said we need a digital timer, and also said that a mechanical timer sends “the wrong signal” compared to a digital, and the pump and Intellichlor won’t turn on at the same time. This guy works for a pool contractor and did some stuff for us as a side job. (A neighbor recommended him - after hearing how much he screwed up everything he touched, they’ll never pass his name along again.) Our pool maintenance guy says that makes no sense and that he takes care of a lot of pools that have a salt system with mechanical timers. So I ask ya’ll - in your experience, what do we need to do?
