Salt Chlorine Generators

Chlorine generators are quickly becoming the most sought after form of alternative pool sanitation available in today’s marketplace. By turning ordinary salt into a self-regenerating supply of pure chlorine, these generators can show you the way to trouble free pool maintenance.

The advantages are many

  • Softer water
  • Consistent chlorine levels
  • No more dry skin, burning eyes or bleached bathing suits
  • Save time and money on smart water chemistry
  • Never buy, transport or store chlorine again

About Salt Chlorine Generators

Salt chlorine generators are typically 2 components; a power supply and a cell. The unit must be properly sized to be able to produce the required amount of chlorine. Example: if you have a 20,000-gallon pool you will need a unit that is designed for 20,000 gallons or higher. In our experience, a larger unit is recommended, as it will not have to work as hard and hence last longer.

Once everything is properly installed, follow the recommendation of the manufacturer to install the correct amount of salt. The salt that is recommended is iodine free and typically comes in 40 or 50 pound bags. It is recommended to test the water for salts first, as some products (Liquid Chlorine) slowly build up over time. Cut open the bag of salt and pour into the pool – It will dissolve over a short period of time and your system will start producing chlorine.

You will notice that, on the power center, you can control the output up to a 100%. Set to the recommended level based upon season and bather loads. So if it’s wintertime you can reduce the output of chlorine since it does not over chlorinate. Exact opposite in the summer; turn it up to maintain chlorine levels.

Unlike conventional chlorine additives that must be constantly replenished, the salt is recycled continuously, day after day, to further reduce pool maintenance. Most generators keep the cells clean with automatic reverse cycling that prevents scale build up on the cell. Cleaning can also be accomplished manually with a diluted solution of acid in water.
