I have a friend that just closed on his home here in Mesa Arizona but he won't be moving down from Oregon for another week or two. The home was a short sale so it took a while and during that time, I've filled the empty pool and kept it sparkling for the last few months with the BBB system.
The pool has a SWG but the cell never worked so I've been using liquid chlorine until the sale was finalized. Now he want's to buy the salt cell. It's a Hayward system and it has the cell for a 40K gallon pool but the pool is actually a 14K gallon pool.
The question is, can we just get the cell that is designed for a 15K pool? Is it compatible with the control unit? Leslies only sells the big cell and at this point, I see no reason to but the larger cell unless there is some other reason for it but the guys at Leslies say to buy the largest one which is $400.00 more because it will last longer. Is that accurate or are they just trying to sell me something they have in stock and/or to make more profit?
Thanks in advance for any advice.
