During the point when the instant salt level is steady (and the negative indication is actually present), twist the switch to ‘Super Chlorinate and back to Automatic.
However, the unit will need like thirty seconds to settle back on the default perusing. You might think it is difficult to calibrate Hayward salt cell but by the below-listed process will simplify
- Touch and hold the MENU/ENTER button on the cell
- Press the UP OR DOWN arrow to calibrate salt
- Touch and hold the MENU/ENTER button on the cell again
- Modify the salt display to correlate with the reading test by holding the arrows UP OR DOWN

How To Test My Salt Cell?
Having known how to reset and calibrate your Hayward salt cell another notable question is How do I test my salt cell? The below step-by-step guides to testing your salt cell will help a lot:
- First, switch off the pump.
- Detach the salt cell but before you do that make sure you take a picture of the cell to avoid putting it in a reverse position.
- Clean the salt cell following the laid down procedures if required.
- Place the dummy cell back into the pipe where the salt cell was detached. This enables you to switch on the pump without messing up the place.
- Immerse the salt cell in the pool water but ensure electrical connections are not wet to avoid shock.
- On the pump and switch on the salt system, for the first test, make sure you put the output at 100%.
- Return the output to its normal setting after you are done.
- If your cell sensor is built into an intellichlor, utilize your finger gently to suppress the paddle till it makes contact and closes the device
- Once the control box is active, it will power the cell, and you’ll see an active bubbling taking place between the plate and cell.
The Cause of Salt Cell Not Working
The easiest and simplest method to determine the cause of salt cell not working properly is to ensure you clean the cell and checking the production lights regularly. It would help if you also looked at the cell plates when it is running. Here is how to know if your salt cell is good or bad:
- If your salt cell is not bubbling, it might be due to a lack of power, or the cell is not good enough.
- Any salt cell that bubbles a bit is probably not working properly and needs professional diagnosis.
- A cell that provides excellent bubbles is working properly.
- A cell that produces zero chlorine in the pool is not good.
