    Replace SWG Cell with oversized element

    Hi All,
    Hopefully a quick "yes/no/don't be stupid" question from a long time lurker, first-time poster

    Am I able to run an oversized cell in my Salt Water Chlorinator?
    My power/timer unit is a Clearwater (Zodiac) spec'd to run a C140 element and outputs 7VDC to the cell.

    Am I able to run (say) a Clearwater C250 element (which fits in the existing housing) with the same power supply?

    Thanks in advance,
    Tim.

    After doing a little research, it looks like all the units use the same control box, so changing the cell should be possible. I would call Zodiac support and ask them directly.

    Good thinking
    I've just spoken to Zodiac support and was advised as follows:

    For Clearwater models C140 - C200, the main control boards and power supplies are identical, barring a replaceable low-cost shunt.
    However the C250 model requires a different main control board at a cost of ~AU$175.

    Part numbers:
    C170 Shunt: W191111 at ~AU$5
    C200 Shunt: W191131 at ~AU$5
    C250 Main board: W080361 at ~AU$175

    Exploded Part diagram and part numbers are shown on the last pages here:
    http://www.zodiacpoolsystems.com/~/medi ... -3030.ashx

    I've just ordered a C200 replacement element from eBay and am trying to source a shunt from my LPS.

    Will report back with my results!

    Tim
