What is a Salt Water Chlorinator Cell?
To put it simply - a handy device that automatically generates chlorine. Through the process of electrolysis, water passes over the chlorinator cell, converting salt to sodium hydrochloride which is then returned to the pool. Once the water has been sanitized, the liquid chlorine returns to its initial state as salt.
What are the benefits of a Salt Water Chlorinator Cell?
Ongoing maintenance is cheaper
No potentially harmful chemicals; asthma and hay fever sufferers will experience fewer symptoms
The unpleasant taste and smell of chlorine is reduced
Mild antiseptic qualities
Irritation to eyes is reduced
The electrolyte cell is plumbed into the filter return line and the power pack is mounted: 4kg of common salt should be added for every 1000 litres, and replaced upon loss of water (i.e. backwashing, splashing or draining after heavy rain). It should be noted that evaporation will only concentrate levels.
Your device requires periodical cleaning, in order to remove the build-up of heavy metals such as copper, calcium and magnesium – this can be done using a pool cleaner.
Concrete or pebblecrete pools will experience more of a build-up on the cell plate than fibregalss pools. If you live in an area of ‘hardwater’ (high levels of calcium), it is best to use a self-cleaning chlorinator – this will also eliminate the need for regular cleaning of the cell.
