Hayward T-Cell-15 Salt Cell vs. PoolSupplyWorld Generic T-Cell-15 Salt Cell

salt cell comparison t-cell-15 vs generic

The benefits of owning a Salt Chlorination system are endless. Salt Chlorinators create soft and clean pool water by evenly distributing free chlorine. There’s no need to mix, measure or manually disperse liquid or tablet chlorine. These reasons alone may explain why Salt Chlorinators are becoming one of the most popular add-on pool features around the country!

At the center of each Salt Chlorination system is the Salt Cell. Salt Chlorinators work by pulling in pool water containing salt (sodium chloride) and then applying an electric charge to electrolytic plates in the cell. This process turns the chloride ions into chlorine gas. Lastly, the gas dissolves into the water, returning to your pool with pure chlorine. It’s science, keeping your pool clean!

Salt Cells typically last between 3 to 5 years. Most systems include a control panel or self regulating system to tell you when the cell needs to be cleaned or replaced.

Here are a few signs that may indicate cell replacement:

  • Blue/green soapy discharge forming inside the cell
  • Scale and mineral salt deposits building up
  • Chlorine level drop resulting in unbalanced water

Let’s take a closer look at how two of our top-selling Salt Cells match up:
