    Jandy or Hayward for my system?

    So I have a bit of a mixed bag pool system in Ca.
    A Jandy RS OneTouch control, a Pentair IntelliFlow pump. Along with a Hayward salt system and heater. The salt cell and control board are dead. Heater is on its last legs. So what should I purchase?

    Pool is about 15000 gallons.

    Thans guys.

    The various heaters are mostly all quite good. I'm fond of RayPac, but that is just a personal preference.

    There are a number of SWG systems that are quite good, with various price/feature tradeoffs. CompuPool, AquaRite, and PoolPilot are all well though of with the choice depending on your price sensitivity.

    Interesting development on my Hayward heater, I have American Home Shield appliance warrantee. They came out today and replaced the motor, control board and, igniter for the $60 deductible!

    Know anything about a Compupool salt cell as a replacement cell? The review seem good by my a niebor guy say the desert heat kills them.

    We have had several good reports of CompuPool replacement cells and just a few horror stories. To translate that, most people are happy but there have been a couple of cases where things went wrong and the replacement either never worked or failed very quickly. Remember that if you use a third party replacement cell you invalidate any remaining warranty on the control unit.
