It doesn't rain but pours. Been on vacation for a week, so pool without maintenance for two weeks. Now both the pump bearings AND the SWG cell are bad. Will pull the pump this afternoon to start to change the bearings. However I would like some advise or testimonies on a replacement Hayward T-15 cell. The current cell has lasted 7 1/2 years so no complaints there. I want to replace the cell with a good solid unit. In that regard I am looking at three alternatives for which I would like to know any personal experiences.
1. Replacement OEM Hayward T-15 cell with prorated 3 year warranty
2. Aftermarket high end replacement cell from Titanium Power Cells (Pool Express)
http://www.titaniumcells.com/ 3 year non prorated warranty 50% longer life
3. The new T-15LL from Hayward. This is actually more than 50% more expensive than option 1 so may not be a good deal.
Or any other recommendations.
