I have about a 13,000 gallon pool with spa with would be the best pool pilot clorinator for my pool.
Hello, Yes, this would be adequate for a 13,000-gallon pool.
How is this unit different than the ST36? Does this work/control variable speed pumps? What is the cost of the replacement cell? Thanks
Hello Glen - The DIG36 has a digital display and the ST36 features "soft touch" buttons with LED lights. The DIG36 can provide power to a 2.5HP pump at 220v if you purchase an optional Relay Kit. If you are installing a variable speed pump, the AutoPilot will only provide power. The controls would be operated at the variable speed pump. You can view the pricing of the replacement cells here.
Is the salt included with the salt chlorine generator?
No, salt is not included. You would purchase the salt locally and the quantity will depend upon the number of gallons of water in your pool. Use a salt that is at least 99.8% pure NaCl. The preferred salt is evaporated, granulated, food quality, and NON-iodized. Avoid using salt with anti-caking agents like sodium ferrocyanide, also known as yellow YPS (prussiate of soda). These cause some discoloration of fittings and pool surface finishes. DO NOT use calcium chloride.
I have a pool that is about 10,000 gallons but I am thinking of buying a salt chlorine system for pools up to 20,000 gallons. Would the larger unit be a problem?
It is not a problem to oversize a salt system. It would take the larger unit less time to produce the necessary chlorine so it is actually more efficient. When the pool volume is very close to the capacity of the salt chlorine generator (for example, the pool is 18,000 gallons and the generator is rated at a maximum of 20,000 gallons), we would recommend going up to the next size generator.
Can the Auto Pilot control a pool pump and a booster pump for a cleaner?
No, the Auto Pilot can control a single or dual speed pump but the booster pump would need it's own timer.
What is the warranty on the Salt Cell itself and the Power Supply?
The power supply has a 2 year parts and labor warranty. During the 3rd year, 50% of parts cost is covered. The cell has a 2 year full parts and labor warranty. During the 3rd year, parts are covered at 50%. During the 4th year on the SC48 and SC60 ONLY, 25% of parts are covered. During the 5th year on the SC60 ONLY, 15% of parts are covered.
Does this unit include the bypass manifold, chlorine cell and the power supply.
Yes this unit does include the bypass manifold, chlorine cell and the power supply.

Pros: low maintenance
Loved this system during the summer. We were first time pool owners this year and after the initial balancing of chemicals, we didnt touch the chemicals for the remainder of the year!

Pros: Quailty, features and appearance
WE have owned an Autopilot before and just replaced it after 10 years. There are several on the market for less, but when you see the quality you will buy Autopilot.We bought the difital to the the timer, now we set it and it runs the pool pump and the sanitizer. No fuss and saves on electricity. Now I don't have to make sure it is turned off after 8 hours.

Pros: Easy to install and operate
After some research I decided on the Auto Pilot and couldn’t be happier. Easy to install and setup, no more chlorine. 15,000 gallon pool and the 36 cell makes all the chlorine I need for here in the Desert.
