SALTLOGIC pool chlorinator Frequently Asked Questions
Back to top of pageBack to top of page   01. WHAT IS A SALTLOGIC SALT CHLORINATOR?
  • It is an automatic, electronic device that generates chlorine from salt (on-site-electrolytic-chlorination).
  • The SALTLOGIC salt water chlorinator consists of a cell, where the chlorine is produced, and a power pack, which supplies power to the cell.
Back to top of pageBack to top of page   02. HOW DOES A SALTLOGIC CHLORINATOR WORK?
  • Chlorine is generated by passing mildly salted water through the cell during the normal filtration cycle and is returned to the swimming pool where it acts to purify the water.

  • Salt chlorination is the healthy alternative to chlorinating your pool; the natural way.
  • No further use of granular or liquid chlorine.
  • No more red eyes and dry itchy skin.
  • Lower maintenance and lower operating costs compared to any other chlorination method.
  • Quick and easy to install.
Back to top of pageBack to top of page   04. WILL IT WORK IN MY POOL?

  • Our electrode coatings are designed for 10 000 hour life spans under normal operating conditions.
  • Depending on operating conditions, expect to replace the cell every 4-6 years.
  • 15 000 hour electrode material is available on request for even longer life spans.
Back to top of pageBack to top of page   07. HOW DO I GET STARTED?
    It's easy! After installing your salt chlorinator simply:
    • add the recommended amount of salt to your swimming pool
    • choose your desired filtration run cycles
    • choose desired chlorine output.
Back to top of pageBack to top of page   08. HOW MUCH SALT WILL I NEED?
  • SALTLOGIC salt water chlorinators are designed to operate at salt concentrations between 3 000 parts per million and up.
  • A salt level of 5 000 ppm is optimum.
  • Sea water, by way of comparison, is about 35 000ppm.
    For more information see SALT REQUIREMENTS AND CALCULATIONS
Back to top of pageBack to top of page   09. WHAT TYPE OF SALT SHOULD I USE?
  • High purity salt is recommended.
  • Iodated salt is NOT suitable.
  • Consult your pool dealer for further advice.
Back to top of pageBack to top of page   10. WILL I NEED TO ADD SALT LATER?
  • Yes. The amount required depends on climatic conditions, frequency of backwashing, splash-out, pool leaks and of course, pool volume.
  • Salt is not lost via evaporation or during chlorinator operation.
  • As a rough guide, you can expect to add between 25 - 50% of the initial amount of salt added at start-up, annually.
    For more information see SALT REQUIREMENTS AND CALCULATIONS
Back to top of pageBack to top of page   11. WHAT IF MY SALT LEVEL IS TOO HIGH?
  • Nothing at all. SALTLOGIC salt chlorinators are overload and short circuit proof and will not be damaged at any salt level.
  • In fact, higher salt concentrations are beneficial as they increase the chlorine output and life span of the cell.
Back to top of pageBack to top of page   12. HOW DO I KNOW WHEN TO ADD SALT?
  • It's easy! Simply check the status of the 'add salt' indicator on the SALTLOGIC power pack and top up with salt when the indicator is illuminated.
  • Your pool dealer will be able to test your water and advice on precise levels if desired.
Back to top of pageBack to top of page   13. IS THERE ANY MAINTENANCE INVOLVED?
  • SALTLOGIC Salt Chlorinators use sealed, self-cleaning cells that remain scale free during their operation, eliminating the need for manual scale removal.
  • However good an SALTLOGIC Salt Chlorinator is, remember it was developed to assist you with the maintenance of your swimming pool.
    For more information see REGULAR POOL MAINTENANCE CHECKS
Back to top of pageBack to top of page   14. DOES SALT DAMAGE POOL EQUIPMENT?
  • No. Modern pool equipment materials will not be damaged by the low levels of salt used by SALTLOGIC salt chlorinators.
  • However, should your swimming pool be more than 20 years old and have visible steel piping and fittings, then these should be replaced with PVC or other suitable plastic material.
