Do I need To do any programming Replacing t-15 ?
Rick S on May 26, 2017
are the old cells that are replaced worth anything or should they be thrown away?
A shopper on Jul 1, 2018
do you need to do any adjustments for the t cell 15?
A shopper on Sep 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This particular cell is a T-Cell-3 so you'll need the systems software revision of at least 1.5 or greater in order for this cell to be compatible with your system. Otherwise, only the TCELL15 will be compatible with your system if it's an older software revision number.

joebo on Jan 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We have the same setup. Our pool is a kidney shaped pool about 16X32. We just installed this replacement cell about 2 weeks ago and it seems to be working fine. The insides do not look like the original but it is working fine. Marian

Bargain price and great quality
The price on this product was the main reason to order it for my AquaRite salt system. This replacement is identical and fits very well, and has a 3 year warranty. I hope it has a long life with my pool.<br>

Wonderful product
I bought my Hayward salt system in 2010 and it's been doing a great job. I was recommended this cell from your company and I just wanted to say thank you. It works the same and performs how it should with my Hayward system.
