Do you own an IC40 now??

I am a highly biased Pentair kind of guy, but unless you have Pentair automation, even I would not recommend a standalone IC40..

If you do not have a SWCG now, I would go with a CircuPool unit, or a Hayward T-15 style system. You get much more operational feedback from those systems compared to an IC40..

If you just want an IC40, I would look at this link.. Pentair IntelliChlor IC40 Complete Salt Chlorinator System

Makes sure any cell you buy is rated for at least 2 x the volume of your pool.. A 20K pool needs a 40K cell.

I agree, I love the Circupool line and have had one for 6 season now... It is getting to the end of life for mine but I run my chlorine level at 7 to 9 FC so I expect a shorter year lifetime... :)
