I am one of the unlucky ones who has the old style 2 port Aquapure 1400 cell and I am now faced with replacement. The new cells that Jandy sells are a different length and will require some plumbing work in order to make them fit. I haven't bought a replacement cell yet. I am pretty mad that Jandy changed the form factor of the cells with no regard to past owners that would have issues like this at replacement time.
Because of the way the pool builder plumbed my return lines, the downstream union body is right against a Jandy valve. There is no extra pipe in there that will let me cut out and remove the old union and replace it with a new one without quite a bit of re-plumbing work. There is a whole series of valves all tightly fit together and this could be a fair bit of work. I could post pictures later when I get home if it would help you understand my problem.
Can anyone tell me if the old unions are compatible with the new cells? Do I need to replace both unions to get the new cell installed? If I could leave in place the one union that is hard to replace, this could be a much easier job.
Next question - what is the best price anyone has seen online for a replacement cell? Web links would be appreciated.
