    Replace IC40 with IC40 or...?

    Okay, so my 3-year-old IC40 is now blinking, and I'm a bit annoyed as this is the 4th cell we've had in 12 years (3 year avg life) for a 12000gal pool. A new cell costs another $500, but given the frustration I've had over the years with these things, I'm considering changing over to an in-line...

    Intellichlor IC40 milky output

    I noticed since we installed a VSP (two years ago), our Intellichor IC40 output has been kinda milky looking. I hadn't thought much about it while the water was clear figuring it was because of running the pump at lower rpm (e.g. 1400) making it visible. But a few weeks ago, the flow sensor...

    Pentair vs Hayward energy star numbers: please explain

    Hi, I currently have a 10-year old single speed 1HP Pentair pump and am looking to replace it with a variable speed. The two main choices I'm looking at are Hayward SP2303VSP and the Pentair Superflo VS. Both of these are comparably priced, both are pretty similar, and both are Energy Star...
