Hello Dr. Hamilton, with the software revision 1.59 you can use a TCELL9 or TCELL15. This software revision has a setting for changing the cell size. The TCELL9 is used for up to 25k gallons of pool water and the TCELL15 is used for swimming pools of up to 40k gallons of water.

My current cell is Hayward TCELL925 is this TCELL9 same replacement as I cannot find any 925 on the market. I have noticed some white residue last few weeks on bottom of pool so i just assumed this was the issue and needs to be cleaned or replaced.

Hello Jon.  The AquaRite 25K Replacement Cell - W3T-CELL-9 is the correct replacement for the Hayward TCELL925.  Attached please find the Hayward AquaRite Quick Reference Guide.  If the Inspect cell Light is Flashing, note Reset Inspect Cell Timer.  When the system is generating, scroll through the Diagnostics to Cell Amperage, compare the reading to the Cell Amperage value in the Cell Amperage Section for an indication of proper cell function.  Many retail Pool Stores (Leslie's) have the ability to test Hayward Salt Cells for function.  Additional reference - Troubleshooting Guide Residential

Does this Hayward cell come with new female fittings and O-rings?
 Reply

A  Answered on 10/14/2020 by InyoPools Product Specialist Joe S.

Hello Jeffrey,The cell does not come with unions or new orings. If you do need to add them to an order you would need the following.O-ring, 2-1/2" ID, 1/8" - O-43 and 2" Union, Nut & Tail Piece - GLX-CELL-UNION.

Asked question about model # hcv40gt15 salt cell. replacement is aqua rite w3t-cell-9. there is some question about rev no. Mine is 1.2. w3t... says 1.5. will there be a problem. I would appreciate a timely answer as I'm offline as of now!
 Reply

A  Answered on 10/27/2020 by InyoPools Product Specialist Joe S.

Good day Melvin, the W3 stands for WWW meaning online sale so Hayward can track the units. The REV would be the firm ware that is needed to run the unit. If you have a 1.2 You would also need to upgrade the board AquaRite Main PCB (OEM) - GLX-PCB-RITE.

Is it possible for Salt Cell to read too high? I get a water test to pool company and it reads 2900. Mine reads 3400 and since that is too high it reads that it is off due to high salinity. Is cell bad or a board bad?
 Reply

A  Answered on 11/17/2020 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

Hi Kevin, yes it is possible for the salt reading to read too high. Try recalibrating the level. Use our "How To Recalibrate the Salt Level on a Hayward Aqua Rite" guide.

Hello, Ive had my pool since 2016, had a new pump motor installed and now it's grinding a lot. i know I have to replace it but, just noticed that the read out on the aquarite said 2000 yesterday and 1800 this morning. the system shows check salt and cell. just cleaned the cell, and the numbers haven't changed. could the motor be part of the problem? no enough water flowing through the cell? I regularly clean the cell as per the instructions. T-cell-9 or is the cell is bad as well?
 Reply

A  Answered on 7/14/2020 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, George. The issue with the motor is NOT linked to the AquaRite. You actually have two different issues. The motor bearings or the entire motor will need to be replaced. As for the chlorine generator, the issue could be a failed cell. We will need the system diagnostics in order to confirm.

    Hi, thanks for the quick response. Well, I doubled checked the cell in the display and it was incorrect. Looks like the system defaulted to T15. I switched it back to T9 and it looks like the salt ppm is going up.

Does the AquaRite 25K Replacement Cell - W3T-CELL-9 cone with the two round unions to attach the cell to the existing piping. This would be a direct replacement for my Hayward T9 cell. And I am in NY...how fast can I get it?
 Reply

A  Answered on 5/15/2020 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Steve, No the cell does not come with the unions, normally you would use your old unions. We do sell replacement unions here - Hayward AquaRite Unions. Yes this is the correct replacement cell for the T9 cell, we do have this in stock and we would estimate 3-7 business days for delivery.

Unfortunately, turbo cell cords cannot be replaced. Due to the way they are designed, the whole cell must be replaced.

I recently cleaned my salt cell because the check cell and low salt lights were blinking. After cleaning the check cell and low salt lights are lit solid. Does that mean I need to replace the cell?

This does not necessarily mean that cell needs to be replaced, did you reset diagnostic button after cleaning if not then the check cell light will come on. Here is a guide On How to Determine if My Salt Cell Needs to be Replaced which you should find helpful

    I replaced the PCB 3 days ago everything was fine today. I go out 2 days later and its flashing low salt 0000 reading on the salt cell volts were like 23 cell amp 0. Cut it off then back on everything is working fine again the salt is reading about 3800 and it is 2950 per my test kit though. Its like the cell loses amps after a day or so.

        It was a aftermarket cell it was only a year old my original Hayward cell also only lasted one year. Guess I'm going to buy another Hayward cell just to have the system with all new parts but its disappointing because my entire system was purchased in 2016.

My Aquarite T-9 is not producing chlorine. Looking at the diagnostics, the Cell Current is reading 0.0. Everything else looks normal. The cell is clean and the salt level is about 2800 or higher. Does this mean the cell is shot? Or is it the chlorinator box? Both? My T-9 is still under warranty. If the cell is shot, how do I use the warranty? Thanks for your help.

A  Answered on 8/14/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Ron. If everything is reading zero including the cell voltages, then the Main PCB is bad.

I have always had the t 15 cell replacement as that was the original setup, I did have to replace the mother board and now need a new cell. I know the cells have to compatible with the mother board. I now operate on r 1.58. What are my options for a cell. Pool volume is actually around 18k gallons. The t-15 was overkill but that was the original setup. Will a t-9 work on this firmware?
 Reply

A  Answered on 10/3/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Kevin. You can use the TCELL9 with your current system, however, the TCELL9 will not last as long as the TCELL15. The larger the cell capacity to your pool the less it will have to work causing the cell to last longer.

Hi David, You can use this Pool Volume Calculator to figure out what size pool you have, however we do suggest oversizing the salt cell as you will get much longer life out of the cell.

Hi Steven, If your system originally came with a T9 cell, then you don't have to worry about the software revision. The system will tell you the software revision by scrolling through the menu or pressing the diagnostic button until you get to the software option.

If you have an older unit (older than 2009) than you would require the GLXCELL15W which you may view or purchase here http://www.inyopools.com/Products/02100002048034.htm

Salt Cell stopped working

Written on 8/26/2020 by Guest

Determined that the salt cell on my pool (just moved into the home) was not functioning properly. I diagnosed as per an INYO video. Simple to follow. After contacting INYO it was determined the Cell installed for my pool was undersized, I ordered a new one and it was a breeze to install and set up. INYO videos make it easy to follow
Replaced the O rings as a matter of doing a quality repair.

Low salt - no chlorine

Written on 6/15/2020 by Guest

I purchased a salt level testing kit that read 1900 ppm and added 4 bags of salt to raise it to 3700 ppm. Aqua Rite was still giving a reading of now 1400 ppm. Cleaned the salt cell with muriatic acid bath and reinstalled.

Salt reading went to 2700 but still no chlorine being produced. Did a manual recalibration (thanks to your instructional video) and would not see the correct ppm of salt.

Rinsed the salt cell again by removing and using cold water, visibly inspected the cell and looked fine. Decided to get the new cell from your site and everything was working fine again until 2 weeks later when my AR motherboard died.

Got the replacement from you and again thanks to your video on how to replace (with the details on jumpers on external power!!) Got that replaced and finally in a good state. Salt is a little high at 3700, but the pool looks great (again) and your videos really saved the day.
