A common sight on newly-built backyard swimming pools, the Hayward Aqua Rite electronic chlorine generator is a convenient alternative to traditional chlorination. The Hayward Aqua Rite AQR15 T-Cell-15 salt chlorine generator is a NSF certified salt chlorinator which works with existing pump and filtration systems to reliably supply the swimming pool with pure chlorine, every day. Hayward Aqua Rite turbo cell t cell 15 uses a low salt level and makes the pool water silky soft to provide the ultimate swimming experience.

The complete Hayward Aqua Rite salt system has three main components: the Control Box, the TurboCell (electrolytic salt cell), and the Flow Switch, along with its miscellaneous hardware and documentation. Hayward offers three different size Aqua Rites for "right-size" chlorination, T-Cell-3 (15,000 gallons), T-Cell-9 (25,000 gallons), and T-Cell-15 (40,000 gallons).

The Hayward T Cell 15 is manufactured by one of the largest providers of swimming pool equipment, and is also know under the popular names Swim Pure Plus, Mineral Springs, Goldline Aquarite, NatureSoft, SplashCLEAR, AquaPlus, Blue Essence, and more. As a pool builder grade system, it has become one of the most widely-known salt systems available since it is the default choice for many pool stores as well as pool construction and service companies.

Q: When using a variable speed pump do you have to install the salt cell upside down?

Asked by: Peter Renick - 4/11/2019
A: The Aquarite manual does call for that. I ultimately depends on your water flow. Since the Aquarite cell is not clear and you can't see if you are having that issue or not (the system will just keep reading low salt/check cell), it's good to install it upside down to help prevent problems.

Q: What size pump would be best to run the T-15 salt water generator?

Asked by: Peter - 6/12/2017
A: The pool size is going to be the determining factor for you, a saltwater chlorine generator can typically work with whatever pump you use (as long as it is appropriately sized for your pool). A salt system usually just needs a minimum flow of about 25 gallons per minute (which is very low, most low-flow variable speed pumps don't even go down that low).

Q: For a first time salt user at start up, before I install this unit when should I add the salt to the pool ?

Asked by: Bill - 5/3/2017
A: You can add the salt really at any time before you install the unit. It will take at least 24 hours for the salt to dissolve, so give it at least that much time before you turn the equipment on for the first time.

Asked by: MO - 2/1/2019
A: The main thing that affects lifespan is how you use your pool and run your equipment. Hayward rates their systems for 10,000 hours of use and has a 3 year limited warranty. Based on experiences out there, actual lifespan may be a little more or less than that.

Q: hayward salt chlorine generator the green light does not come on?

Asked by: brian - 5/16/2017
A: It is possible that the fuse inside your control box is blown. If after replacing the fuse you still don't have LED lights showing correctly, and if you have checked that it is correctly hooked up to power, then it is possible that the electronics are damaged inside the AquaRite control box.

Asked by: thourod - 7/2/2018
A: If you actually do have a good salt level, a clean cell, and adequate water flow, and you are still getting a warning light, then that typically indicates the cell is reaching the end of its lifespan and can be replaced.

Q: Does the warranty from manufacturer come with this purchase from your company?

Asked by: Bob - 3/5/2019
A: Yes of course, this item comes with the manufacturer warranty. Hayward does specify in their printed materials that you must use a paid installation service to get the complete warranty on their system. While some other brands also require professional installation, many do not and you can see that information under the "Warranty" tab as well as the "Complete Specs" tab on the product page.
