    So what I can gather from the forum is that any of the systems listed in the SWCG comparison will provide efficient and reliable service. Therefore, the comparison between units is length of warranty, service availability in your locale, price and whether the company is in the market for the long haul. Is this true or am I missing something?

    The Jandy info isn't quite square with the owners manual with regards to how much salt the pool must have. From the manual:

    • 3.0 to 3.5 gpl of salt is recommended for optimum water conditions.
    • Low salt concentration below 2.0 gpl will cause premature cell failure.
    • High salt concentration above 4.0 gpl may damage the power center.

    And further in the manual....

    If salinity is below 2.0 gpl the AquaPure will automatically turn the cell off
    until the salinity is raised above 2.0 gpl, since operating with low salt will damage Cell. Likewise, if salinity is
    above the range of measurement the AquaPure will automatically turn the cell off until the salinity is lowered
    to a measurable level, since operating with high salt will damage the control center.

    Error codes 144 (below 2.0) and 145 (greater than 4.0) are thrown by the Jandy control panel if the salinity falls outside the 2.0-4.0 range.

    Wow, this was a while ago, and I'm sorry I didnt stay up with it. Regarding output claims on marketing brochures, it helps when it's actually tested and verified.
    Case in point, CPSC48 marketing literature claiming output at 2.5 lbs/day was tested by NSF at 1.28 lbs/day.

    If you see errors or omissions, please note them in this thread, so I can correct them.

    Is there an updated list?
