OVERVIEW
PPC3 salt cell is the replacement for the old RC-42 and SC-48 models. Unions are included with the cell, making installation simple and quick, and we recommend adding a new cord (see Related Items) when replacing the cell in order to prevent voiding product warranty.
 
Pool Supply Unlimited is an AutoPilot Authorized Dealer - so rest assured you can always feel confident in your AutoPilot purchase with us. Our AutoPilot replacement salt cells are always brand new, genuine AutoPilot products made in the U.S.A.
 
The cell’s seven blades provide potent chlorine generation, yet it’s easy to clean as needed with a solution of water and muriatic acid. Its longevity is also enhanced by the unique manifold design of Pool Pilot systems, which includes a strainer to keep debris out of the cell and a tri-sensor to determine if water flow, salt levels and water temperature are sufficient for chlorine generation.
 
The PPC3 is sufficient for up to 50,000 Gallons with the Pool Pilot Soft Touch, Pool Pilot Digital or Total Control.
 
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 while 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.

my control panel is reading low amps what could cause this?.
A shopper on Jul 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It meant on ours that our cell had gone bad. I bought the new one and replaced the old one and reconfigured my salt percentage on the computer and it started working again
Can this cell replace the SC-36?
Gary on Oct 17, 2020
BEST ANSWER: It sure looks like it would work,work, ask sales rep to be sure.They answered all my questions.Good luck
i have a sc-48 element and I have cleaned it the same as always. I can not get the led on the monitor to show that the flow and show that everything is okay?
A shopper on Nov 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The cable on my unit has come loose due to vibratiin several times. I simply unplug both ends and reinsert snuggly.

Alternately the mesh fulter maybe plugged - fall leaves and spring pollen are my least faviurite yes even through a de filter

Lastly cable is shot or flow vanes are jammed unlikely but can happen
What is the cell power setting for the PPC 3?
Christian S on Jul 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I typically have my power setting at power level 3
Your info on this cell says "Cord should be replaced as well as cell", why? And what cord?
I'm also looking for Cell RC42 for Pool Pilot model DIG 220 would this one work?
Sybil C on Jul 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The cord takes a beating from the outdoor environment, so the manufacturer Autopilot recommends you replace the cord when you replace the cell. Sometimes I don't, but usually I do. You have the same Pool Pilot unit I do, the DIG 220, and I have been using the RC42 cell for years. It is the manufacturer's newer name for the cell they used to call SC-48. So yes, this is the recommended one for your unit. I once tried an off brand that was compatible with my DIG 220, and it worked, but didn't last as long as the Autopilot RC42.
do you sell the blank/dummy cells that fit this?
A shopper on Dec 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: We currently only have the dummy cells for Hayward and Jandy systems. We can special order it and get it to you in less than 3 weeks.
