    OK so I have a solar iboost water diverter.
    Seems to have gave up only putting 330w max into my tank.

    What's everyone using?
    Or any suggestions?

    Can you explain further? Is there a bypass function you could use to check if the problem is with the unit or the current sensor?

    Yes. There is a boost function and that's not putting out more than 330w aswell.
    Tried batteries in sender aswell but obviously when I boost that wouldn't matter.

    How can you tell it's putting out 330W only? Could it be that the measurement is faulty? Or has something changed recently to make you think there is a problem?

    It says on the iboost how much its putting in.
    It used to put in 3.6kw roughly
    Obviously its been a while since we had that kind of sun

    Hmm so either the iBoost has deveoped a fault or its measurement system has. I don't have one - or an Eddi - because it didn't make economic sense for me.
    Have you tried contacting Marlec directly?

    Whats in those things? Thyristor? Mosfets? Anyone open one of the cnuts? Might be easy to fix


    Throw an auld clamp meter on it to see if it really is faulty
