My 5.5 year old Jandy AquaPure 1400 is beginning to fail. It's producing choline, still but not well. Test seems to indicate that the cell is at fault. So it seems I need at least a new cell, but was wonder whether now would be the time to install a new, better, entire system. If I had had a great experience with the Jandy, I would simply replace the cell, the flow sensor and be done with it. However, for each of the last 4 years I have replaced a flow sensor, or had to resolve various error codes, once I was on the phone with tech support and they had me remove some sort of correction card from the front board.... Anyway, it has been farther from 'trouble free' than I would like.
Perhaps this is just the nature of SWCG's in general, and if so, please let me know if you think so. If that is the case, I may simply forgo the system and manually chlorinate, not sure, I'd have to give that some thought. However, I hold out hope that there is a system that runs for ~5 years with just basic maintenance, cleaning and properly winterizing the cell etc, without all of the other problems. Again, it may be that what I am looking for does not exist and my expectations are too high, but I hope not.
Any and all opinions are welcome.
