We have a 16000 gallon in ground pool in Phoenix Arizona. It has a SWG "Pool Thing" brand. It is only three years old and stopped producing chlorine. I Talked with Pool Thing tech support and he feels the cell is half dead since it only makes chlorine in one direction, only get the dosage needle to climb in one direction. He wants to sell me another cell for around $550.
Is it wise to spend that much on a another Pool Thing Cell or just replace the whole SWG system?
If replacement is in order is any brand more reliable, better features, etc. than another? Recomendations?
It has a single speed pump, cartridge type filter, nothing fancy. FYI, getting a solar heater installed this week if that matters.
