How Does a Salt Chlorinator Work?

AquaRite-wTCell-300x250Salt chlorinators convert salt into a self-regenerating supply of pure chlorine for soft and safe water. Hayward’s chlorine generator systems convert dissolved salt into the perfect amount of chlorine for your pool. Our systems create water that is silky-smooth and sanitized for a pleasant, healthful swimming experience for your family.

Here’s how it works: You add pool-grade salt to your pool and wait until it dissolves. Power is applied to the chlorine generator to convert the dissolved salt into chlorine. Fresh, pure chlorine treated water is returned to the pool for complete sanitization and swimming comfort. It’s as simple as that! Hayward’s salt chlorination system is less work for pool owners, is easier on your family’s budget, and is a more convenient sanitization method than traditional chemical chlorine sanitization.

Advantages of Salt Water Pools

Salt water pools offer a more convenient sanitization method over traditional chlorine. The reliable systems operate independently and are easy to maintain.Salt water chlorination produces clean, clear, silky-smooth water that’s luxuriously soft. Salt chlorination is a natural sanitization method, in contrast to using harsh chemical chlorine. Salt water offers a pleasant healthful swimming experience with fewer chloramines produced, eliminating the harsh chemical odor. Salt cells convert salt into active chlorine for a lower cost as compared to the traditional form of liquid or solid chlorine.Salt water pools reduce skin and eye irritation and greatly reduce the chlorine smell.

Salt Chlorinator Technology

If you’re thinking of building a salt water pool or converting an existing pool, you’ll want to become familiar with the technology behind salt chlorinators. Salt chlorinators convert salt into chlorine to sanitize pool water. The level of salinity is quite mild, at only 3,000 parts per million. Pool owners are amazed to learn that only a teaspoon of salt per gallon of water is needed to produce clean, clear pool water. This is comparable to the amount of salt in a human tear. Your pool water will not smell or taste salty either. Here’s how Hayward salt chlorinator systems work:

  1. Add the proper amount of salt to your pool water where it dissolves.
  2. Salt water enters the TurboCell chlorine generator.
  3. Power is applied to the TurboCell to convert the dissolved salt into chlorine gas.
  4. Water with fresh pure chlorine is returned to the pool for complete sanitization.

Hayward's chlorine generator systems convert dissolved salt into the perfect amount of chlorine. They create water that is silky-smooth and sanitized for a pleasant, healthful swimming experience.

I've used several area pool service and parts companies over the years. Pool Doctor is the best. They are knowledgeable and helpful. They understand that I can fix minor things myself and bend over backwards to save me money when it's possible. They are reasonable and quick when I need them.

I brought a robot vacuum one morning.  I did not buy it from Pool Doctor, my wife got it online.  It had a warranty issue.  Pool Doctor accepted it from me around 10:00 am.
Within an hour or 2 they called me saying it's all done. I pass by a few pool companies on my way to Pool Doctor because they are professionals and always have been helpful with my pool issues.
