    Looking for SWG for a friend, please recommend

    Helping my friend look for a salt generator. Looking for economical for the unit and economical cell replacement and something that is relatively trouble free unlike my Jandy Aquapure. He has no automation so that is not an issue. 10K gallon pool.

    iC-20 Intellichlor. I'm afraid that if you were to get the iC-40, you may not be able to throttle it down enough to accommodate 10,000 gallons.

    I'm very happy with my Pentair IC40, 3-1/2 great years. I will gladly get another when the time comes. The 2 to 1 ration works fjne in our pool, we can make all the chlorine we need.

    I was thinking Hayward Aquarite T15. Is that not good?

    That is what I have and I love mine. It has served well with little to no issues.

    I've had a Hayward (formerly Goldline) AquaRite AQR15 for over 10 years. My first cell lasted well over 7 years and cost less than $400 to replace. So, in a 19k gallon pool that is open year-round My chlorine cost works out to less than $57 per year. It is also probably the most popular unit among forum members, and can be had online for under $900.

    I'm thinking of this one because the cell seems to last a long time and replacement cells seem to be inexpensive.

    The Hayward is a good choice, better warranty than the Pentair and cheaper cell replacement. If you self-install the Pentair you only get a 90 day warranty compared to 3 years for the Hayward.
