The CompuPool GRC/AP/SC36 is the generic replacement for the AutoPilot SC-36 RC-35/22 PPC1 salt cell. This generic cell fits AutoPilot plumbing perfectly, meaning it’s a plug and play replacement for the OEM (original equipment manufacturer) cell.
The GRC/AP/SC36 has only two prongs, but fits three-pronged AutoPilot cell cords with no problem. Unions are included with the cell, and we recommend adding a new cord (see Items We Suggest) when replacing any salt cell.
Like other CompuPool generic cells, the GRC/AP/SC36 is more economical than its OEM counterpart, and has the same two-year limited warranty offered by AutoPilot on the PPC1. CompuPool is an established name in saltwater chlorination with more than 30 years in the industry.
Another advantage of CompuPool generics is their clear blue housing, which makes it easy to ensure the cell is functioning correctly. This also helps in determining when the cell is in need of periodic cleaning, which can be done easily with a solution of water and muriatic acid.

The GRC/AP/SC36 employs the same design of the AutoPilot original, with five blades providing a steady supply of pure chlorine. OEM and generic AutoPilot replacement cells also both benefit from 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. Thus, the GRC/AP/SC36 provides lasting, reliable chlorine production at less cost than the AutoPilot original cell with the same warranty protection.

The cell is capable of handling two pool volume capacities based on the power center used. It can chlorinate pools up to 35,000 gallons when installed in AutoPilot’s Pool Pilot Soft Touch, Pool Pilot Digital and Pool Pilot Total Control salt systems, and can handle 22,000-gallon pools when used with Pool Pilot Digital Nano or with Pool Pilot AG, AutoPilot’s power center designed for above ground pools.

We offer CompuPool generic cells to give our customers a more economical alternative to original equipment, but also because we have had positive experiences with these models and CompuPool consistently rates well in independent customer surveys. We endorse both manufacturers and their products and only hope to help you make an informed decision when comparing them. Please feel free to contact us with any saltwater chlorination questions you may have.

Missing items from order. Lack of communication
Didn’t get all of my order. Can’t get in touch with anyone. Tried phone, email and live chat. Have a dispute through PayPal to get my money back for missing item. Two more weeks before anything else can be done. It’s been a headache.
