I have a TurboCell GLX 15w for my 17,500 gallon pool. Is there a more affordable replacement? It is about 5 years old and does not generate chlorine.
Hi, Doug. You can save on upfront cost by going with a smaller cell if your system has a software revision of 1.5 or higher.
Will this GLX-CELL-5 Cell work with my 15,000 gallon in-ground pool?
Hi, Melanie. Yes, it can when used with a compatible controller.
I have a splash clear collection turbulent flow chamber labeled sp-18 also says electrolytic cell my instruction booklet says aqua troll by gold line controls. Inside the salt water generator it also says use with t-cell-5 so would the part # glxcell5 be the right part to replace it with?
Hi, Tony. Yes, this is the correct replacement cell.
My T Cell 5 doesn't read salt content correctly. My pool supply says my level is 3200 and the read out says 2200. Won't generate now. Cleaned cell with acid/water and try to re-adjust salt level. Still no luck. Started a year or more ago where it started reading lower than the test. Is replacement cell my only option at this point?
Robert- It sounds like the cell is going back, I would take your cell to a store that can test it and have it tested twice. If it fails then obviously the cell needs to be replaced. If it passes the stores TDS meter could be faulty.
I have an Aqua Rite XL which I believe we installed in 2009. The firmware is 1.4 and the model number is 3A0906-1058650. It needs a new cell and I don't know what type to order.
Hi, Skip. The Aqua Rite XL Controller is only compatible with the TCELL15.

warranty on hayward t-cell15 salt system
Hello, the warranty is 3 year on a GLXCELL5.
I have the turbo cell 5 that has gone out. I have firmware 1.4. What cell can I replace it with?
The GLXCELL5 would be the correct replacement cell.
My cell has writing on it that says the cell has to be installed in a vertical position. iv'e visited all my friends and all of their cells, which are the same model as mine, are installed horizontally. Can I do the same?
Hi, Randall. You have the RJ model so it does not require a flow switch. Your cell can not be installed horizontally.
I have a Hayward GLX-CELL-5 that needs to be replaced. Is that the only kind of cell I can buy to replace it.
You can replace it with the different AquaRite size but when installing you have to make sure to change the setting on your board otherwise it will not work.
I need to buy a replacement AquaTrol T-CELL-5 generator because the old one I had stopped working. I found the item on your web site. Once I connect it up to my pool, and connect it up to the control panel box, is there anything else I need to do? Will the new chlorine generate automatically start working with the existing control panel box I have?
Yes, after you hook the new cell up it is supposed to start generating with the control panel.
Can I use this replacement cell to replace a Blue Essence t5 cell with 24 VDC, 5A MAX.
Hello Lamont, Yes you can use GLXCELL5 to replace the Blue Essence cell
I'm needing to replace my cell. Right now I have a Hayward Goldline T-CELL-5 for an above ground pool up to 20,000 gallons. Which cell should I purchase?
Thank you for your question! The GLXCELL5 is the same manufacturer's replacement cell for the Goldline T-CELL-5. The replacement cell comes with a 3 year warranty. Have a great day!
We have an Aqua Logic Goldline salt system from 2007. The current salt cell is a t-5 turbo cell - turbulent flo chamber. The pool is inground and 14,000 gallons. What do I replace it with? Is the t-5 only for above ground pools as I have been reading? Should I go up to a higher cell so then it will run less to extend the life of the cell?
Hi Janet, If you currently have a T-Cell 5 you can replace it with the same size cell. If you would like a larger cell you will have to make sure that your firmware is compatible with the larger cell.
Hello, I have an Aqua Trol with a tcell5 which cracked. Can I which to a tcell3? Size of pool is under 11000gallons? My Aqua Trol is rl1.45. Thanks
Julie, I would not recommend changing the cell to the TCELL3. I would recommend replacing it with the same cell you have now.
Hello, I installed a pool last year and the salt cell is T-CELL-5. What is the life expectancy? And if it is still good to reinstall for this summer is there any preparation or cleaning of the cell I should do before installation when I open the pool? Thanks in advance!!
Hello Jo Ellen, The life expectancy of a T-5 Cell (if matched to the correctly sized pool) will be at least 3 years, but could extend for more. You will want to inspect the inside of the cell for any debris or calcium build up, and clean it out before re-installing it. You can visit our How To Clean a Hayward AquaRite Turbo Cell if you have additional questions.
Is the GLXCell5 an exact replacement for the Mineral Springs by BioGaurd T-Cell 5 that I bought with my pool in 2009?
Hi Artie, The Turbo Cell GLXCELL5 will replace the T-Cell 5 on the Mineral Springs by BioGaurd chlorine generator.
I currently have a GLX Turbo cell - 15 but I see on your site that it is associated with 40,000 gallon pools and that a T cell - 5 is for 20,000 gallon pools. My pool is 10,500. Shouldn't I replace my T15 with a T 5?
You could go with a smaller cell, but we always suggest going with the T-15. With a pool your size, you can run the T-15 at 35% which would be equal about 70% on a T-5.Running the cell at a lower output will make the cell life longer.
Does a t-cell 5 ever expire or do they need to be changed ?
I found this that explains the situation very well - "The cell is the part of the system that actually converts Salt (NaCl) to Chlorine. Water passes through the cell and over solid titanium plates that are coated with either ruthenium or iridium, which are naturally occurring metals. As a charge is sent to the cell from the control board and electrolysis occurs resulting in the production of chlorine. Eventually the metallic coating on the cells erodes away, requiring the cell to be replaced, but there are several factors that impact how long your cell could last. "
I have an Aqua Rite 20 with a t-5 cell. The software Revision is 1.4. Will this cell work as a replacement?
Hi Dave, The AquaTrol & AquaRite 20K Replacement Cell Only will be the correct replacement if you already have a T-5 Cell.

No, the part number for the TCELL3 is GLXCELL5.

The new cell has been installed and is working great.The look and feel of the water without using lots of chemicals is Wonderful.
