    Replace Aquapure 1400 with ???

    I'm preparing for the inevitable failure of the cell on my Aquapure 1400. Are there any better alternatives out there if I decide to go with a different system? My frustrations with the Aquapure center around the repeated failure of the flow sensor. I think I've gone through 3 of them in the last 4 years. Would it be cost effective to replace the whole system (are there any better out there)? Is it a major project to switch to another manufacturer?

    I would look into the newest flow sensor design before switching brands if you only need to replace the sensor when it is time. I have not seen any reports here on TFP with a failed sensor of the new design.

    I made the switch from the Aquapure to the Hayward AquaRite a couple months ago when my cell and sensor died. Like you, I had many problems with the sensors and went through 2 cells and 4 sensors in 5 years. The last cell and sensor were out of warranty so I would have needed to replace them at my cost. At that time I had not heard of the new sensor design and I was completely frustrated with the Aquapure so I made the switch to Hayward. Another factor for the switch was the flow rate on the Hayward is only 15 GPM while the Aquapure is 30 GPM and with my 2 speed motor and solar I had flow issues on low speed.

    So far I'm satisfied with Hayward and I know about the current limiter issue they have with their boards, but I have a 3 year warranty and I can easily replace the limiter if I ever need to.
