My now 7 year old pool was built with a goldline aquarite salt generator. I had a less than pleasant experience with goldline-so much that for the past two years, I have been using chlorine tablets instead of salt. The last time my cell failed, goldline said that the warranty would only be 90 days unless I purchased a new control panel too. I declined. I'm tired of the expense and water quality involved with chlorine tabs and want to return to a salt system.
I understand that aquarite was sold and from what I've read, there have been better experiences with the system. I'm really gunshy about returning to a product that I felt... ...well you get the idea. However, my system is already plumbed and ready for an aquarite-my Aqualink will talk to an aquarite-a lot of incentive to return despite the crappy treatment last time.
I've been reading with interest about the Autopilot system and am curious as to how much modification it will require in order to get it to work? Will I have to make some modifications to the plumbing? From what I understand, it will talk to my aqualink. Is this a project that I can install? I am certain that I can install the aquarite. And lastly, are the aquarites any better now quality wise as opposed to 3 years ago?
