Chlorinators - The convenient & healthy alternative

Zodiac swimming pool chlorinatorZodiac swimming pool sandalsNo worries with a clearwater chlorinator

What is a chlorinator?   A chlorinator is a device producing chlorine by using the process of electrolysis to break Sodium Chloride (or Salt) up into Sodium and Chlorine gas.  The chlorine gas is produced as often as the pool pump circulates water.

Why are chlorinators so popular?

 

A "salt pool" has the following advantages:

  • It is convenient with Automatic Sanitation, day in and day out
  • It eliminates the need to purchase, store, add and handle chlorine 99% of the time
  • It makes swimming pool maintenance much easier
  • It saves you time
  • And money

Installation is easy, just keep the following in mind:

  • That the chlorinator is the last device in the water circulation line, and is therefore connected after the water has been heated.
  • Initially 50kg of salt is required per 10 000 Litre  of water
  • That is impotant to read the manufacturer's manual for detail installation instructions before you start with the installation

 

Enjoy the pleasure of having a pool without the need to add chlorine manually. Experience the comfort in knowing your pool is being sanitized even when you are not around and free from unhealthy levels of virus and bacteria.

Based on your swimming pool's volume, select the Clearwater or Intellichlor model that is right for you.
