    Aquarite pro and pool size

    I am considering an Aquarite pro and I have an in ground pool that holds 40,000 gallons. The pool receives sun all day long. I have always run my pump 24 hours a day. The tag on the pump is all worn out so I have no idea how often my pool water turns over. I am going to probably replace the pump also. The t-cell 15 says it is good up to 40,000 gallon pools. Would I be cutting it too close? Can I optimize my setup by also sizing my pump in a way to compensate for being at the cell max?

    Yep that would be cutting it way too close. Go at least one size larger and 2 sizes would be better. A 40k unit on a 40k pool is gonna have to fun full out all the time just to keep up.

    The problem is that the 40,000 turbobcell is the largest that they have. I guess that I would need to run two in parallel. I couldn't find any literature on that. Do I need two control units then?

    I'd go with a low end commercial unit. You can run two cell parallel and yes, you need two controllers.

    You can verify the gallons for your pool in the pool calculator link below.
    Input length, width, average depth, and shape to estimate pool volume.

    http://www.poolcalculator.com/

    If the pool is 40K + gallons then
    take a look at the Auto Pilot SC-60

    I concur with the Auto Pilot recommendation.
