Think I'm going to put in a Circupool RJ-60. I'd like to plumb for it this fall when I shutdown and replace liner, but I'd rather buy the unit in the spring.

Anyone have a spent cell they would be willing to send me? Happy to pay the freight.

Thanks!

Circupool will sell you a Dummy Cell. Plumb that in and then you are ready for the SWCG. Need to be sure to get the unions as they normally come with the SWCG.

Thanks, didn't know that, but makes sense. At $31, it is pretty steep. Anyone have a spent one? :)

Something else to consider is the dummy cell is great for winter too. Bring the cell inside and leave the plastic pipe in its place. It will get used besides this one time if that helps the thoughts about the $31.

Chances of a donor cell coming with the necessary unions to glue in is pretty small.

The other reason for the bypass cell is if the need should arise to ship out the cell for service you'd use it in place of the cell and keep the equipment pad going. I have one since there's always someone with a problem. Used it this summer twice.

I think I can figure out the unions, I just need the cell. Hope springs eternal.

Did you find something yet?

I believe I have an old, dead Hayward T15 cell somewhere.

Just you are aware, the RJ cell is very similar to the Turbo cell, but unions are slightly different.

It is best to use the Blue union made for RJ, I have run into this problem multiple times as unions can not screw all the way.

Also the connector for RJ is different from the Turbo cell, I do have the cable to convert a Hayward cell to use on RJ if you need it.

Thanks for the heads up! I will wait to do final glue up until I have the real cell. Having this spent one has really helped with layout. I didn't realize it is so big. I had to rethink the layout (I'm still thinking about it).

Hayward thread is more like /\ while some RJ is like |\ .

Not sure you understand what I mean.

If you are lucky, they are exchangeable.
