    Price check on an OEM T-CELL-15

    I have found warranty claims to be a waste of time unless something is DoA. Depleting a cell is pretty easy to do if your FC requirement is high and you've run your cell for a few years.

    Price check on an OEM T-CELL-15

    Nope, kept them both. It's only money. They'll all get deployed and depleted over time. I have been meaning to do a project to run two in parallel. I have to run one virtually all the time in the summer (VS pump set very low) to keep the FC up on this pool. Might have an excuse now to find...

    Price check on an OEM T-CELL-15

    Well from what I can estimate it is +700. When I get the real standard solution and the nacl/tds meter, we'll see what the quorum is.

    Price check on an OEM T-CELL-15

    More interesting data for me: I compared the "new-to-me" Salt Solutions rebuilt cell to a brand new out of the box Hayward TCELL940 and got identical salinity readings (3000 as of right now). Both cells report the same info. The Salt Solutions folks should be pleased with that. Taylor K-1766...

    Aquarite experts: fw levels

    It seems to be the default language many of them use. Here are three of many examples: Here is another example: Yet a third example from fleabay:

    Aquarite experts: fw levels

    That is what I would have thought - if the generic requires being set to a t-15 that's where I'm at. Why the fuss about fw levels.

    Aquarite experts: fw levels

    My original Aquarite SWG control box/boards have been in service since 2002. The board's fw is r1.1 and other than replacing a thermistor, they work fine. I have replaced the T-15 cells with Hayward units a number of times over the years and the unit is always happy with that and works fine...

    Steve emailed me and suggested it run for a few days to see what it does.

    Price check on an OEM T-CELL-15

    I just received a rebuilt cell from SaltSolutions Inc in Tampa. Resetting everything by switching off and on, then superchlorinate/on, I am getting about 2700ppm stable reading (the - instant reading) when the known Taylor K1766 and Aquachek strips PPM is quite a bit higher @ 3800ppm on the...

    I’m giving them a try. I’ve known about saltsolutions for years and just didn’t have much feedback.

    I need to buy an oem T-15/T-CELL-15 replacement cell. Best I can find right now is $539 all in. Anyone know of a better price, TTL all in? Thanks.

    VS pump recommendation

    I replaced a Hayward Northstar with a Hayward Tristar VS SP3206VSP early this year. I was lucky enough to have a local fix it pool pro do the simple install to get the "professionally installed" requirement to get a $75 rebate from Hayward. Every little bit helps. All the "pool companies"...

    Doheny's Discovery, S200, Active20, Triton owners club

    Marina/Margaret did say when I was shopping for mine last week that there was some issue with their shipment of active 20s, and suggested the s200 for my purchase.
