I have a Swimpure Plus, software version r1.4. I went out to clean the filters last weekend and noticed black/brown goo leaking out of the cell, like a bad ballast in a fluorescent light fixture. Looks fried to me so I have unhooked it. Stupid me, I thought "easy fix" and ordered a new T-CELL-15 off amazon for $400 bucks. Installed it and find out it does not work. Do a little research and it looks like I need the T-CELL-15-SWP that costs $600. Now I am wondering if I should replace it for $600, spend the extra $300 for the AQR15 I found on Amazon and replace the whole thing or just throw in the towel and go buy a pallet of bleach.
Recommendations? Other options? I am wondering if I can just replace the controller board and use the T15 cell I just bought or if there is some way to update the firmware in my current unit. I hate getting rid of my controller seeing how it works fine but it seems silly to pay $600 for a new cell.
