The APEX E13 salt cell is an alternative replacement for older or discontinued Ecomatic generators such as ESC24, ESC36, and ESC48 chlorine. This APEX E13 salt cell is an aftermarket replacement cell designed for perfect fit so it can easily drop in place and allow you to replace your old Ecomatic ESC cell in minutes. Includes built-in water sensor for safety. Not made by Ecomatic, this cell is an economical choice to restore your chlorine generator's operation and has 100% guaranteed compatibility.

Replacing your salt cell with the APEX E13 will allow your salt chlorine generator to begin chlorinating again if your old Ecomatic ESC salt cell has been depleted. The APEX E13 cell sanitizes your swimming pool in an eco-friendly and cost-efficient way, and also helps provide a luxurious swimming experience without the eye irritation and dry skin.

Sizing:

When replacing your Ecomatic ESC system's salt cell, take this opportunity to make sure it is sized correctly. Sizing your salt cell properly is key to making sure you will not need to supplement with additional chlorine or shock your pool, and also extends the lifespan of your cell. The industry recommends using a salt cell with a max capacity of 1.5-2 times the actual size of your pool (more is better). The APEX E13 is a 13-blade salt cell manufacturer rated for pools up to 24-54,000 gallons.

Compatibility:

This aftermarket replacement salt cell is for use with the Ecomatic models ESC24, ESC36, and ESC48 - guaranteed to work with original systems of the same size (no software/firmware issues). Also compatible with 71004, M0657USA, ESC7000, ESC8000 and ESC9000 salt systems from Ecomatic, Balboa, Davey, and Monarch salt pool systems. Not compatible with ESC16 models. Works with both 110V and 220V systems. The APEX E13 cell has the same length, threading, and cable connection for easy replacement and perfect fit.

The APEX E13 Cell is not manufactured, endorsed, or sold by Ecomatic, Balboa, Davey, Monarch, etc. Neither APEX nor the E13 cell is affiliated with Ecomatic; the use of manufacturer names, product names, part numbers, or such trademarks herein are included for compatibility designations and informational purposes only.


To get the most life out of your salt cell and to keep your pool running without unexpected interruptions, make sure it is sized correctly, maintain correct water balance, and be sure and inspect your cell at least every 3 months for leaks, debris, and calcium scale. Be sure to follow instructions in the product manual and clean the cell as often as the system indicates.

Works great
I have an old ESC 48 salt chlorinator. I have a large 35,000 pool. This is my 6th replacement cell in 15 years. This one is well made and has been working flawlessly for a month so far. Very happy and good value

Something’s loose
I have had the same pool equipment for 17 years, and many salt cells. This one works fine so far. When I ordered one a few weeks ago, I thought there was something loose inside, so I sent it back. The next one was the same. Turns out, that’s the way they are made. I find that the sound I hear inside when I shake it to be surprising, but it seems to work fine.

Great company to work with
I ordered this salt cell to replace the original old cell in my pool system that is apparently discontinued. Received it fast and it worked perfectly. When the time comes that this cell goes out, I'll definitely be buying a new system from this company.

Questions From Customers

Q: do i need any other items to use this cell with my orginal system?

Asked by: Andrew - 5/22/2018
A: Not typically. If everything else is in good working order, this should be a plug and play replacement.

Q: How reliable is this cell in your experience? This would be a replacement for my ecomatic. How long does shipping normally take?

Asked by: Mark - 3/13/2018
A: We have had great customer feedback about this replacement cell, and it has been made to meet or exceed factory specs.

Ship time of course depends on where you are located, but for most people it only takes 2-3 business days.

Q: I'm looking for a replacement for ECOmatic ESC 16, 240V up to 15,000 gal. I note it is out of stock. Will you be getting more replacement items for this system, or is there something else that will work? I was told I have an issue with the control box as well although it is currently still working. What is recommended? If I haven't given you adequate info please tell me what you need?

Asked by: KC - 8/16/2023
A: This item is only marked for ESC24, ESC36, and ESC48 systems. If the cell needs to be replaced and there is also an issue with the controller, you might consider at that point replacing this older system with a newer model (potentially at a similar cost): https://www.discountsaltpool.com/saltwater-chlorine-generator-systems-for-all-swimming-pools

Q: Who is the manufacturer? Who do I call if I need warranty service?

Asked by: Mike Shire - 9/24/2018
A: As Ecomatic cells are very old and no longer readily available in the US, these are generic cell that we have made - they are not the Ecomatic brand. As is the case for most items we carry, simply call us if you have any questions or concerns - during normal business hours there is usually less than a minute wait time. If there is an issue with the equipment, we can get you connected with the warranty support team so that the cell can be tested and replaced if necessary.

Q: that does not look like the original ecomatic esc 36 salt cell. Is it a generic brand?

Asked by: Cathy Friedman - 3/28/2020
A: Yes, this cell is labeled as generic and is designed to meet or exceed original factory specs. Ecomatic systems are long discontinued in the US, so this is a very popular option.
