    Are those good replacements or is oem the way to go?

    They only got a couple of vanilla reviews, and are sold and fulfilled by a third party, who says only 11 left in stock, which seems odd for Mid Summer. On second thought, I would stay away from them.

    I got mine here, http://www.poolplaza.com/P-CC520-SET.html, they seemed the same as the oem cartridges, which I saved for spares.

    These Unicell replacements are virtually identical to OEM, we use them all the time, without issues.

I think the practices regularly espoused on this forum (especially the BBB method) are outstanding; however my comments will be often oriented towards the goal of getting it done, and getting it done right now!
