    I have purchased a fairly reasonably priced older chlorinator cell and
    would like to install it on my swimming pool. I plan on using a 12v DC
    power supply. I had a suprise when I recieved the cell. It has three
    probes instead of just two. I used my multi-meter to discover the
    continuity of the probes to the plates inside the cell and it is like

    | | | | | | | | |<<<<<<<<<plates
    0 0 0<<<<<<<<<probes
    (there are actually more plates between the ones on the outside and
    the middle)
    I was wondering what the three different probes were for? I am
    guessing that it is set up for reverse polarity to cycles to reduce
    build up on the plates. however, I'm not sure what should be negative
    and what should be positive.


  2. I have the same cell configuration, and looking
    at the pool psu, the third terminal acts as a
    gate driver for the MOSFET drivers.

    Hope this helps.
