Rebuilt Hayward Aquarite?

I couldn't find any previous threads on this, but I'm looking to switch our pool over to SWG.

Are the "rebuilt" Aquarite SWG AQR15 worthwhile? It looks like a difference in price of around $250 vs. new. The model (graphics) look like it's an older model, but the setup looks the same. It lists a 2 year warranty, so I can't decide if it would be worth it.

Thank you in advance!

More than likely that is a unit that had a bad thermistor or solder joint and the seller was able to fix it. They are pretty easy to fix and as long as everything works, it might be worth it. However, it looks like the cell was rebuilt as well which is a red flag for me because you have no idea the quality of the plates used.
