After doing a fair amount of research, I am considering pulling the trigger on a Compupool CSPC 36 or maybe a 48 in the next couple of days. My pool is about 27k gallons, and I currently run the pump about 10-12 hrs a day in the summer and actually wouldnt mind reducing that if I can get enough circulation. I know I need to oversize the swg for this, but is the 36 oversized enough? Its rated for 40k gallons and The output ratings Ive seen on these forums and online show the 36 at about 1.7-1.8lbs/24hrs which is comparable to other manufacturers 40k gallon or larger units (Hayward Aqua rite 40 and Pentair IC40 is only 1.4!).
Is reliabiliy so far for those that have them seem to be on par with the Hayward, Pentair, and Jandy? (none of them seem to have spotless records) I have read some reports of overheating with these, but it seems to be fairly easily resolved, and also some cutting on off. If there is a problem, is the customer service decent?
Also, have they been out long enough to know the longevity of the cells? They are more expensive than the readily available generic cells for the Haywards, which may ultimately make the Hayward cheaper long run.
