    SWG ID please

    Trying to swap out old as dirt swg. I called hayward/goldline and they said to look for a number but i cannot see any number on this thing.

    This pool shop http://www.poolsonly.com/aqua-rite-chlo ... d_315.html


    told me that since cell is over 3 years i would have to get the more expensive T-15(40k gal) because the T-9(25k gal) wont work with software in controler.

    my pool is 20 k gal so why should i get the T-15! are they just full of it? Thought it was going to be as simple as simple swap and plug in...



    Are my hands tied, do i have to get the T-15?

    Any suggestions?
    Thanks

    It really makes sense to get the larger cell as it will last longer and you can run your pump a shorter amount of time and still keep the correct FC in the pool.

    Re: SWG ID please

    I agree ... we generally recommend a SWG sized 1.5-3 times the size of the pool. For 20k, I would certainly have recommended the 40k cell.

    I will be using the 40k cell on my 18k pool.

    BTW, I am not really sure how to tell the difference in the cell ... I think it has to do with the number of plates in the cell.

    Uhggg... lol So if i get the 40k i could run filter around 5 hours, the temp is around 80.

    Could i just swap cell and not replace controller and be ok?


    I was always told that a bigger filter pump does not mean better so i thought the same for swg...

    Re: SWG ID please

    You just have to close the contact on the flow sensor to test if it functions. Not sure why you would need a zip tie to test it.

    If Hayward said you would be ok with the larger cell ... then you should be ok. I remember something about the different software and which cells were compatible with what, but do not remember the details.

    BTW, what makes you think the cell is bad? Have you had it tested at a pool store?

    The old systems have to use the same size cell all the time...you can't swap out a smaller one. Mine is the same...I have a t15 on a 11k gallon pool!
