Some more information provided by Waterco on Salt Water and their Chlorinator

“Chlorine occurs in nature, mainly as a common salt”

Chlorine Production by Electrolysis

Through the process of electrolysis, a saline solution pass over an electrolytic cell, then the saline solution is separated into its basic components: chlorine and sodium. The chlorine is instantaneously transformed into Hypochlorous acid; this is the chlorine form that kills algae and other harmful organism in the water. A chlorine generator’s main function is to produce chlorine for the pool. This keeps a residual of chlorine in the pool that prevents algae from growing. The chlorine then turns back into salt and the system continues as long as the generator is functioning properly.

Why Salt-Water?

Ocean water has a salt content of around 35,000 parts per million (“ppm”). Humans have a salt taste threshold of around 3,500 ppm. The Electrochlor Chlorinator requires a salt content of 4000 – 6500 ppm in the pool. Swimming in a mild saline solution is much like taking a shower in soft water.

Electrochlor Salt Water Chlorinator

The Electrochlor will automatically maintain the chlorine level of your pool and eliminate problems associated with periods of very high or low chlorine levels. Fewer fluctuations in chlorine levels mean fewer fluctuations in pH levels.

This results in more stable, balanced water. Consistently maintained sanitiser levels in the pool water will prevent the growth of all common algae. A salt-water chlorinated pool requires much less attention than a chlorine pool. A salt water pool provides a more comfortable swimming environment. Salt water feels better and is less irritating to the body than standard chlorinated water.

Long Life Salt Cell:

The Electrochlor’s salt cell consists of a series of titanium electrodes with opposite charges. Electrochlor’s clear salt cell housing allows visual inspection of the salt cell plates and enables monitoring of chlorine production. The cell housing is constructed using clear U.V. stabilised acrylic. Both anode and cathode of the self-clean chlorinator are made from uniquely coated titanium mesh to add extra durability and life.

Low Maintenance:

Electrochlor Self Clean Salt Cell has the added ability to reverse the polarity of the voltage to clean calcium buildup off its electrodes.

Salts Level – Operation: Once an Electrochlor is installed and the desirable salt level is achieved (see table), salt needs only to be added occasionally to replace any water loss e.g. splash out, evaporation, backwashing. Five Years Warranty:

Salt Levels (ppm) Minimum = 4000     Optimum = 5500       Maximum = 6000

 

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Is there a difference between ‘salt chlorinator’ chlorine and ‘normal’ chlorine?

A salt chlorinator makes chlorine the same way a chlorine factory does. The difference is that it is manufactured in your pool. Liquid chlorine is approximately 12.5% pure, whereas Electrochlor’s chlorine is 100% pure.

Will I ever need to add standard pool chlorine again?

From time to time it may become necessary to add some chlorine to the pool. This may be due to heavy rain or if the chlorine level needs to be shocked back up.

Does the salt damage pool equipment?

No. Low levels of salt have relatively insignificant corrosive effects on pool fittings and equipment.

How do I get started?

It’s easy! After installing your salt chlorinator, you simply add the recommended amount of salt to your pool and choose your desired chlorine level.

How much salt will I need? 1 kg of salt in 1,000 litres of water raises the salt level by 1,000ppm. Therefore, 420 kg of salt will raise a 70,000 litres pool from 0 ppm to 6,000 ppm.

What type of salt should I use? High purity salt, it is important that the salt does not contain additives. Any common salt (like table salt) usually has an additive that may have staining properties.
