    AutoPilot Replacement Cell

    I searched the forum but didn't find any direct hits on this, so here goes...

    I'm still a few seasons (hopefully) away from needing to replace my AutoPilot salt cell, but in just doing a Google search, I see wild price fluctations for OEM replacements when comparing buying direct from AquaCal vs a reseller like BackyardPoolStore or SaltPoolGuys. For a RC-42 replacement, AquaCal is charging $846 whereas the resellers are charging ~$350 for the same OEM cell. Is there any reason not to purchase OEM replacement cells from a reseller, short of having money just burning a hole in my pocket that I don't have any better use for?

    I may be a bit biassed here

    Now for the serious answer... When AutoPilot lists any items on their website they do so at full M.S.R.P. (i.e. "sticker price"). That is why you will see a large difference between what prices are shown on a website like ours vs. their pricing. We are a fully authorized dealer and only sell 100% brand new cells with manufacturer warranties included.
