    Replacement T-15 Cell

    Need to replace my cell, wanting to know where and what everyone is buying? Name brand or Aftermarket? And I see plenty of "Deals" out there but then reading into the "Deals" only come with 1 year warranties. As opposed to 3 years. What you guys think? Who really has the "Deal"?

    To be honest, SWG cells are not my forte', so I would defer to others that have recently gotten the "deals". Hopefully a bump to your thread will get you some more answers.

    Re: Replacement T-15 Cell

    Amazon had the T15 for 398.00 2 weeks ago. I'm not sure if the price has gone up since then. No generic brand for me. I'm a firm believer in "You pay for what you get ".

    Same as Donny. Get OEM stuff. You'll be glad you did. You can sometimes get it very reasonably on Amazon.

    This is the one I bought. Unfortunately I paid more for it. I don't think you can beat the price.

    Re: Replacement T-15 Cell

    I get the proven OEM argument but the T-15 is old technology. I've been lucky and got nearly 10 years out of mine but others only 5-7 years. I have to believe there is newer technology out there. I may have to replace mine and have heard some good things about the Ti3. It's $364, has a 30 day free trial and a full 3 year warranty (not pro-rated) so risk is low. Would like to hear if anyone else has taken the leap.

    Re: Replacement T-15 Cell

    Thanks guys! I have seen the so called Titanium cells, but I believe all cells have some level of titanium in them. I got 10 years out of my cell, so I got my monies worth I guess. It's hard to find a OEM cell with 3 year warranty at a reasonable price? $398 seems to be average, but it is 1 year warranty.

    Most plates are titanium covered in ruthenium or iridium compounds. There is a new T-Cell-15LL (long life) that might be worthwhile getting.

    Re: Replacement T-15 Cell

    Based on my experience, a T-15 cell gives seven plus years of life in a 20k pool. That equates to less than $57 per year cost for chlorine. I'll bet anyone who uses any other method to chlorinate a pool can't match that cost. But if you want to experiment with another brand or type cell, good luck and please let us know how it goes.

    Not too difficult to find.

    Re: Replacement T-15 Cell

    I bought my last OEM T-15 from Amazon. I don't know if it's normal, but the cell also came with two unions for a new installation. I sealed off one of the unions with parts from Home Depot and made myself a plug for cleaning. Poolsupplyworld has a generic cell (not Compupool) which was mentioned in another thread, but I haven't been able to find any feedback other than the reviews posted at PSW:
