Need a new chlorine generator. Existing is Pentair IC40. Any one with experience using the SPLASH IRCF40?
Sounds like you cannot control it from Pentair Automation. Reviews are mixed.

$599

$1700

Thanks, Jim. I would rather have the ic40 but keeping up with the chlorine is any everyday task for me. I'm probably doing something wrong.

My,

How big is your pool in gallons?

What output % did you have to run the IC40 to keep your chlorine up to your Target?

What is your CYA level?

How long did you run the Pump/SWCG each day.

Thanks,

Jim R.

I have not used the Splash brand, but certainly tried many other brands, based on the look of it, I believe they are all made by the same company, just with different labels put on it. But they cost 1/3 of name brand on Amazon. Or less than 1/2 of real deal ($1200). I like the generic better because you can just replace the cell without the electronics (such a waste on the name brand)PT comparison.jpg
