I'm replacing all of the equipment on my system. It currently has the Goldline Aquarite controller running v1.10. Pretty sure it probably has the original T-cell-15, which doesnt work. I ordered the AQR9 kit, with new Aquarite controller and T-cell-9, since my pool is approx 15000 gallons. I figured since the controller is the same spec, the swap should be simple, including using the same mounting position and hardware.
I received my order today, and they sent me the SWP9 kit, with the Swimpure Plus and T-cell-9. From everything I can find online, Swimpure and Aquarite are the same thing. One Hayward, and one holding onto the original Goldline. Do I bother trying to get the AQR, or are these physically and functionally identical. It seems they use the same cell, although the one that came in the kit is labeled T-Cell-9-SWP. Does anyone know if Hayward has officially killed Aquarite, and the Swimpure is the only choice now?
This is what I ordered... Hayward AQR9 Aqua Rite In-Ground Salt Chlorine Generator up to 25,000 Gallons
EDIT: I dont know if it matters, but looking at the box, Hayward has a Canada facility. The package came from Canada, which leads me to believe it's drop-shipped. Not sure if that answers my question about killing off the AQR.
