The CompuPool GRC/AP/SC48 is the generic replacement for the AutoPilot SC-48 RC-42 PPC3. 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/SC48 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/SC48 is more economical than its OEM counterpart, and has the same two-year limited warranty offered by AutoPilot on the SC-48 RC-42 PPC3. 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/SC48 employs the same design of the AutoPilot original, with seven 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/SC48 provides lasting, reliable chlorine production at less cost than the AutoPilot original cell with the same warranty protection.

The cell can chlorinate pools up to 50,000 gallons when installed in AutoPilot’s Pool Pilot Soft Touch, Pool Pilot Digital and Pool Pilot Total Control salt systems.

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.

My OEM pool pilot salt cells and cord have melted. Has the compupool cell and cord improved any of the OEM problems?
David S on Oct 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I wasn't having those types of problems, so I can't really answer that question honestly. My salt system was just letting me know that I needed to replace my cell, so I purchased this one and it worked all summer. Actually, this is the second cell I have purchased from them over the years. Never had an issue with the cells at all, and they are a lot cheaper here than in the pool stores. Good luck!
