Q & A

Q: I have an old intellichlor that does not light up this year. I assume it is the cell unit not the power center, I assume it has expired but do not know how to diagnose it. Do they also make a replacement power center?

Asked by: eric - 5/10/2017
A: As the average lifespan on Pentair cells can be 2-4 years, the cell may need to be replaced since it is the consumable part of the system. You may just want to double check that you have a good fuse in your Power Center and visually inspect the Power Center for damage to rule it out. If you do need a new Power Center, see below under "Related Items".

Q: When I put my in-ground Pentair pool filter back together this spring, I found I'm missing my salt cell. I have a Pentair system that is approx. 3 years old, and my pool is 27,000 gallons. I'm not sure which replacement salt cell to buy

Asked by: Bill - 6/2/2020
A: The industry standard is typically to get a system 1.5x to 2x the capacity of your pool. So you would want at least the 40,000 gallon model if not the 60 for a better value and more capability.

Q: We have a 36000 gallon in ground pool with a Pentair IC40 currently that we believe needs to be replaced. Do we have to replace it with the same salt chlorine generator? Is there one that works just as well for less? This prices seems high for only 2-4 years of use.

Asked by: HP - 7/6/2020
A: No, you do not have to keep using the same model. You can consider the , aftermarket cells for your model, or also a popular model to switch to is the CORE55 with its adapter kit so you don't have to replumb.
