Why use a salt water pool system?
Salt chlorine generators are quickly becoming one of the most sought-after forms of alternative pool sanitation on the market. By turning ordinary salt into a self-regenerating supply of pure chlorine, these generators can show you the way to trouble-free pool maintenance.
- Softer Water makes for more enjoyable pool water
- No more dry skin or bleached bathing suits
- Noticeably softer water on skin and hair
- Water is easier on the eyes
- No chlorine spikes due to consistent chlorine levels
- Eliminate the harmful additives from chlorine
What is a salt chlorine generator?
Salt chlorine generators are typically two components: a power supply and a cell. The unit must be properly sized to produce the required amount of chlorine. A larger unit will not need to work as hard and will last longer.
Follow the manufacturer’s recommendation to install the correct amount of salt. We recommend testing the water for salts first. Cut open the bag of salt and pour into the pool. It will dissolve and your system will start producing chlorine.
Using Salt Chlorine Generators
You can control the output up to a 100%. You can reduce the output of chlorine so that it does not over chlorinate and turn it up to maintain chlorine levels.
Unlike conventional chlorine additives that must be constantly replenished, the salt is recycled continuously 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.
