I need to replace my T-15 cell. a Hayward cell is lust under $600 online, while I see generics in the $270-$400 range.
Any recommendations on generics, or is Hayward worth the extra $$? And any recommended sources?

Did you make any decisions on replacement of the T-15 Cell? I am in the same boat, need to replace my cell, the prices on the generics is so much better than the OEM I cant decide what to do.

Thanks

I looked at reviews and such, and a couple of the vendors had lots of complaints about the cells failing and then they were not honoring the longer warranties (several said they would not even respond to them).

So I looked at a generic cell Leslie's carried for $399, and then online I saw one from Pool Supply World for $279. The shape of the cell housing was identical, so I'm guessing they are the same just with different labels (Leslie's is branded Jacuzzi, and the one I got is labeled Salt Pool. 1 year warranty only. So I ordered it from Pool Supply World and it got here two days later. I just installed it this morning and it seems to work fine.
