So it looks like I need a new salt generator. My old salt cell finally went kaput (I have no idea how old it is, since it came with the house when I bought it). It was a Zodiac ClearWater LM2-24. Apparently they don't make the salt cells anymore, so the cells cost like $450+ dollars to replace. At that price, I'm probably looking to buying a brand new system.
Has much changed in the market within the last year? I've been looking at old posts from a year ago, and most of them talk about systems that were new at the time, so there wasn't any reliable information on them. So far I haven't found a bad review of any SWG, but I can't find a decent side-by-side on why I should pick one over another.
So what should I look for in a SWG? How much should I expect to spend on it? Is it difficult to install myself? I'm also considering a PH control system. Should I look at all-in-one systems? Or should I consider buying them separately?
