    Compupool CPX-48 Series Replacement for CPSC 48

    Hello All,
    My 3rd unit CPSC-48 has died. 3 units in 30 months approximately. Power supply issues.
    Compupool is replacing the CPSC series with the CPX series. New design of powersupply and cell. It will be $400 for the replacement unit with cell and 2 years of coverage.
    I'll be taking the plunge. They don't have any in stock currently, but are expected in next week 10/16 or so.
    I'll write a review when it comes in.
    In the meantime do you have a CPX series? Are you happy with it?

    I'm still waiting on my cpsc 48 replacement unit. (4 months so far) Do you think they will upgrade me to the newer unit? They should considering the thing was new in June 2013.

    You can call and ask. It may be worth a shot. Mine is on it's 3rd year the price was worth the upgrade for 2 years coverage.

    When I spoke with Tim in customer support he stated that they were getting a shipment this week and would call so I can pick it up.

    Is your pool still open? Closed mine down 3 weeks ago when the power supply went. I liked the fact I could see the gas being generated in the old one. Don't know if it will be visible in the new one. If yours is still open let us know when you hook it up.

    Looks like the cell is visible from their info sheet (listed above). I keep the pool open all year, I just adjust the pump time down and turn down the cell. Currently using bleach. I add every 5 days or so.

    Re: Compupool CPX-48 Series Replacement for CPSC 48

    I'm fed up with them, my unit went out in June after a year and a half. The wires started melting, and I needed a cell and a wire. A few weeks ago he told me it had shipped the day before or shipping that day. I called yesterday, and he said still no stock, and no timeframe when it was coming in.

    If they will update you to the new unit, I would NOT pay for it. At this point, I don't know if I'll get anything before next season. If I don't have anything by March, I'll be buying something different.

    hey bobodaclown ! Have you got your CPX-48 yet? I have been waiting for weeks and it hasn't shown up yet. Wonder if they are having an engineering or production problem.

    Nope. No call yet. I did a manual recall, and the unit started working. I'm going to wait till the spring to replace it.

    Mine came in the mail last week. I got to remove the old unit... Now that temps are in their teens.

    The cell has different mounting so some plumbing changes will be necessary.

    I may wait till may to get my replacement. I when it in did a manual recalibration. I changed the numbers to opposite of what they posted. I know it's done a recal on itself. It's working. It shut down once or twice (popped the yellow breaker). Turned it back on and it's working.
    Only time will tell.

    Re: Compupool CPX-48 Series Replacement for CPSC 48

    Well I fought tooth and nail and finally I got my replacement cpx 48. It took this company 6 months to get the unit to me, thank God I don't have my pool open. Anyhow, the new unit has a 3rd port for easier mounting, no more wires connected to the back to cause melting, and instead of hard wiring the cell to the control unit, there is a fancy plug that has about 8 prongs. The blue cover over the cell looks to be much thicker then the cpsc48 and the cell itself has what looks to be a plastic cover over the titanium plates (like a Zodiac model). All in all it looks really nice, I'm thinking that with their lawsuit and all the problems with the last cpsc units they should have gone above and beyond with the engineering of this unit.

    You guys are making me nervous. Right now it's not an issue, because I still have a while before I can add salt and use the SWCG, but now I'm starting to fear I'm going to have another problem.

    I did get a call for the replacement unit. I'm going to wait until may. My using is working again. I did a manual calibration. Trips the CB every once in a while, reset good to go.

    I installed mine this week - Looks really nice- Much better done than the old unit. Pool is still covered for the winter so won't know how well it works for a couple months yet.

    They called in December, I wasn't ready to take the order, just reordered. Awaiting a shipment to come in. Tim doesn't work there any more but I've been talking with Jason Thompson, and he's been really helpful. Good new is the replacement my get paid for from Visa. Just got over an algae bloom. Caught it early. SLAM - 10 gal of chlorine 4 days all is well.

    I'm getting a CPX-36 vice the CPX-48. It was a compromise I needed to make to get the new unit installed sooner. (Supply issue on the CPX-48 cells.) Visa will be picking up the cost, and they'll double the warranty. The new units (CPX) come with a flat 2 year warranty (covers cell/powersupply.) I'll start a new post covering the install and such. I hope it will be useful to others.

    My CPSC48 just literally went up in smoke. I've emailed them to see if I can get a discounted CPX 48. Any word on how these are holding up?
