    T-cell replacement

    Are T-cells interchangeable between Aqua Rite and Swimpure Plus?

    Hi Marie,
    Welcome to TFP!

    Yes, the T Cells are interchangable.

    Thank you. That is good news. Now. I'll have to get more info and come back for advice about why the new t-cell isn't generating chlorine.

    Hi Marie, just curious, what size cell did you have and how many years did you get. I sure hope the builder didn't undersize it. That will greatly reduce its life.

    Re: T-cell replacement

    There was a t-15 when we bought the house and it was beyond 4 years old. I replaced a few months ago with a t-15-step. All was good in the beginning and then started having issues with chlorine production. Because it was the winter, the issue took a backseat. In Louisiana, we are having steady days in the mid- to upper-70's. Time to get to the bottom of the problem. I noticed today that the panel is not reading the salt properly even after I tried resetting.

    Re: T-cell replacement

    I would price out a t-15 cell, with your volume of water it should last 4-8 years depending on how long your season is. They come with a three year warranty. One other thing is to ensure your cya is around 80 ppm, having proper cya will allow you to turn percentage down and lengthen the life of a cell. Improper readings are the first sign of it coming to the end of its life sadly.

    The current cell is only a few months old. I may take advantage of the home warranty to have the panel checked.

    Thanks. I'll call the home warranty company.
