I have a Jandy AquaPure 1400 and the salt cell is in need of replacement. While looking for a replacement I've read that these Jandy's really are not that reliable and I know that the salt cell has its problems in that it doesn't really last more than 3 years or so. I'm getting error codes 172, followed by 183,184 which refer to the flow salinity sensor which I've cleaned but not checked the circuit board yet. Rather than replacing it with another Jandy, I'm thinking of spending another $300-$400 and just replacing the whole system with either the Pentair IC40 or the Hayward Aqua Rite 40.
Chime in with your thoughts on which system you have or which in your opinion is better. I've found both the Pentair and the Hayward at about the same price so give me what you think I should do.
I have a 23,000 gallon pool and my swim season most years is 5 months here in the South West. I should also tell you my filter system is a Pentair Cartridge system and the salt water cell was installed in Apr 2010 and the salt cell (Jandy) has really not been producing chlorine for almost a year now. I've been supplementing the pool with chlorine tablets since it stopped producing chlorine. Ready to buy and would like some feedback from owners of these systems.
Thanks for your replies.
