No more mixing, measuring and messing around with liquid or tablet chlorine again. Now you can automatically turn ordinary salt into a self-regenerating supply of pure chlorine for both pool and spa water that's clean, clear and luxuriously soft. Electronic chlorination has become the simple, safe and affordable alternative to using harsh, chemically-produced chlorine to sanitize pools and spas.
Unlike traditional chlorine treatments that require a regular routine of monitoring and replacing chlorine, electronic chlorination produces chlorine from common table salt. The key is our patented Turbo Cell®, a specially designed converter connected to the control unit. As water passes through the Turbo Cell, an extremely safe electrical charge turns the salt previously added to the water into fresh sanitizing chlorine which is then dispensed evenly throughout the pool. Just a teaspoon of salt per gallon is all it takes. Installation is quick, easy and suitable for any new or existing pool.
No chlorine odor, low operating costs, pays for itself, and is virtually maintenance free—electronic chlorination is the ideal alternative to traditional factory produced chlorine for soft, silky-smooth water.
Frequently Asked Questions
Question: Do I need to change my pump or filter to install a salt system?
Answer: No. The system is added after your existing equipment.
Question: Will I still need to use tablets or liquid chlorine?
Answer: No. If properly sized your system will produce all the chlorine your pool needs.
Question: Will the water taste salty?
Answer: No. There will be only one tenth of the level found in sea water. The salt level in your pool would
be comparable to one teaspoon of salt in a gallon of water.
Question: Is it cheaper to maintain my pool with a salt system?
Answer: Typically a salt system goes for at least three years without repairs. If you figure out how much the
system costs installed and how much you already spend on chlorine and tablets in most cases you will
realize that in the three years or less you will start saving money.
Question: Can I use tablets, powder chlorine or liquid chlorine after having my salt system installed?
Answer: Yes. Your salt system produces chlorine therefore is compatible with all chlorine forms.
Question: Do I still need to add any other chemicals to my pool?
Answer: Yes. Your system only produces chlorine therefore you still need all other chemicals.
(For example: Muriatic acid, alkalinity increaser, conditioner, calcium, etc.)
Question: Do I still need to test my water regularly?
Answer: Yes. Water balance has to be kept just the same. Remember to mention that you have a salt system
when testing your water so they can also monitor your salt levels.
Question: Do I need to increase the amount of hours my pump runs?
Answer: In most cases you do not since your pump should be running eight hours per day anyway.
If you run your pump less than eight hours you can may need to increase the output of the salt system instead.
Question: Will the system let me know when I need to add salt?
Answer: Yes. The system will tell you when you need salt, but, you should always take you water to be tested
at your nearest dealer just in case the sensor in your system is out of calibration,
Question: How much and how often will I need to add salt to my pool?
Answer: On a typical 15'x30' pool without a screen enclosure in Florida about 6 to 8 bags (40 pounders) per year.
Most of them during the summer.
Question: How hard will it be to maintain my salt system?
Answer: It will be easier considering you will not have to buy, transport or store bulky liquid chlorine jugs
or tablet containers. The unit itself just only needs for you to clean the cell every 6 to 12 months.
Question: Will the system let me know if there is no chlorine in the water.
Answer: No. Salt systems do not monitor chlorine levels in the water and just because there is salt in the
pool it does not necessarily mean there will be chlorine.
Question: Does a salt system eliminate chlorine from the water?
Answer: No. A salt system produces chlorine just like the one you already add. The difference is the amount
and the purity of the chlorine being produced. Less chlorine in a purer form means nicer water.
Question: Is the water quality better on a swimming pool with a salt system?
Answer: Yes. There is less chlorine at any given time and the salt makes the water silkier. Also the chlorine
being produced does not have harsh additives such as sodium hydroxide in liquid chlorine.
Question: Since the salt systems works on electricity. Are they safe?
Answer: Yes. They are just as safe as your 12 volt pool light.
Question: Will my electrical bill go up while running a salt system?
Answer: Yes. But nothing noticeable.
Question: Isn't salt more corrosive than chlorine?
Answer: No. Salt is corrosive because of the chlorine in it. (Sodium Chloride)
Question: Can I install a salt system myself?
Answer: Depends on you skillset. Basic knowledge of plumbing and electricity is required.
Question: Can I add "any kind " of salt to my pool?
Answer: No. The salt has to be 100% pure. Table salt contains Yellow Prussiate of Soda and Iodine which
will stain your pool. Rock salt contains impurities since is not meant for human consumption and
will also stain your pool. Get your salt at any pool store.
Question: Where is the salt added?
Answer: Directly to the pool at the shallow end. Always brush afterwards and turn the salt system off.
Question What happens if I add to much salt to the pool?
Answer: You will have to drain a portion of your pool and add fresh water. Remember to wait three days
after adding salt to test the level again. If you need to speed up the process run the pump 24 hours
