Sizing:

When replacing your Intellichlor salt cell, take this opportunity to make sure it is sized correctly for your pool. 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 IC20 is manufacturer rated for a maximum capacity of 20,000 gallons.

Compatibility:

This replacement salt cell for the IC20 is 100% compatible with all Intellichlor Power Centers (no software/firmware issues). The IC20 cell has the same length, threading, and cable connection for direct replacement.

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.

Q: My pool is approx 9000 gal. I have an intellichlor IC20 for about 7 yrs now. Although I have all GREEN lights my chlorine remains low. Been running between 80% & 100% and I'm lucky if I get a 2 or slightly above. I have cleaned it - there was some build up but it was clean in less than a minute. I may have used more Muriatic Acid that noted on different videos. (some say 1 to 1 while others say 4-1). I used to always run itat 60% and my chlorine level stayed a 5. Stabilizer and ph are fine. Does this mean my cell is on the way out.?????

Asked by: Paul - 9/24/2017
A: Based on my experience, Pentair IntelliChlor cells last most people 2-4 years, but it depends on how its used. If its that old, I would not expect to have much more useful lifespan left. However, one or more service lights will usually illuminate at that point, so it might be worthwhile to also do some troubleshooting on the controls first.
