The AutoPilot RC-5 replacement salt cell is for use with the old Pool Pilot Cubby in-deck saltwater chlorination system. It's intended for use in spas and pools up to 20,000 gallons.
AutoPilot has discontinued its production of the Cubby salt system in favor of its new Pool Pilot products such as the Soft Touch
, the Digital
and the Total Control
, but still offers two-year warranty protection on the RC-5. The cell has five titanium blades to provide reliable chlorine production for spas and smaller pools.
It's easy to remove the old cell and install the new one and the 50-foot power cord into the existing cell canister, which sits flush in the pool deck (see attached Owners Manual for more information). Note that we also offer an RC-5 cell with a 100-foot cord under Other Purchase Options which may better suit your needs.
AutoPilot has been involved in saltwater chlorination for over 40 years, and we proudly offer and
endorse its products based on our own personal experiences. Customers praise the silky and smooth water produced by AutoPilot salt systems, noting that eye irritation caused by chemicals by swimming is no
longer a problem and their children are using the pool more as a result. Even better, constant
tweaking of water chemistry is unnecessary because AutoPilot cells are among the best in the industry at providing steady chlorine at whatever level is necessary based on weather and rate of use.
