    Question about plug for T-15 cell

    Hey everybody Hope everyone survived the awful winter. I see where it's not quite over for some
    I remember seeing somewhere here about an expandable rubber plug for a T-15 SWCG. I think it was a #11 Can someone confirm this for me before I go out and buy one? This will be my 3rd summer with my pool and it's probably time to check/clean the cell. I've never done this procedure before. Is the water/acid ratio 4:1? Can the water be just plain old tap water?

    I am soooo looking forward to swimming weather

    Thanks.

    Hi Lynn! You may not need to acid wash the cell at all - have you taken a look at it? If it doesn't have scaly deposits, you're good to go.

    Re: Question about plug for T-15 cell

    Hey "Gator" No, I've never had the cell disconnected. New adventure here I quess I just unplug it and unscrew it on both sides and take a look huh??? If it doesn't look scaley (?sp) just hook it back up. I'm wonder how much water will pour out when I take that puppy loose???

    Is the rubber plug a #11????

    Re: Question about plug for T-15 cell

    Yup, unplug it and take a look. Some water will come out, but it isn't too much. I'm afraid I don't know about the expandable rubber plug - I have a "T-Cell cleaning stand" that screws into one end cell for acid washing - but I've never used it - never had scale in the 3 years I've had the pool.

    Thanks no-mas. Maybe someone will come along with the answer. Gators aren't looking too bad in the tournament. I don't think we can take much more drama on "Rocky Top"

    Found it: gold-line-aqua-rite-says-inspect-cell-t28987.html?hilit=expandable%20rubber

    It's been a good year for basketball - my expectations were pretty low in December. Hope our new football coaches build some excitement this year; last year was awful! How long until UF v. UT? September will be here before we know it!

    Re: Question about plug for T-15 cell

    In the following post Waste said that is a #11 plug. I bought one last year for a couple bucks when I ordered some chemicals, but haven't had to use it (or thought to try it). Here is the link:

    Hope that helps!

    Hi Lynn

    See what happens when I go to do some housework, other folks have to answer for me

    I hope the cell doesn't need cleaning and that you have a GREAT pool season

    Hey Ted. I thought it was you who mentioned the plug, just couldn't find the thread. Should have bookmarked it
    Hope you've adjusted to your move.
