Pool Chlorinators

Using a salt chlorination system for your pool provides a range of benefits including increased swimmer comfort (chlorine sensitivity may lead to stinging, itchy eyes), improved algae control and decreased maintenance costs.

Some important things to note about Health Chloor Salt Chlorinators:

DIY Installation of you Health Chloor Salt Chlorinator 

  • The electrode should be installed in the pipe which goes back to the pool.
  • The power pack should only be working while the pump is running.
  • The pump has to work for 6-8 hours each day during winter
    and 10-14 hours in the summer.
  • The electrode should be connected after the solar heating panels.

Salt Levels

The salt LED lights indicate the salt concentration in your pool. If the salt level is low, the chlorinator cannot keep the chlorine levels correct and that could result in algae growth. A correct salt level will also ensure a longer life for the electrode. The green LED of the salt meter must always be ON. If not, add salt. Let the pool cleaner run while adding salt. 

Determine the volume of your pool to determine the amount of salt necessary:

 Volume = Length (m) x Width (m) x Average Depth (m)

For every 10 000 litres of water, 40 kg of salt is required

Vol. of pool  No. of 50kg bags of salt 
 30 000  2
 40 000  3
 50 000  4
 60 000  5
 70 000  6
 80 000  7
 90 000  8
 100 000  9
 110 000  10
 120 000  11

Water Balance

  • Make sure that salt level is maintained.
  • The pH must always be kept in balance. Always aim to keep the pH correct by adding acid in the pool with the pump running.
  • Correct pH for plaster pools is 7.2 and is fiberglass pools 6.8.Alkalinity of plaster pools should be 120 and 150 for fiberglass pools.
  • This will help to maintain a balanced pH.
  • 40% of the chlorine in the pool should be stabalised. It is important not to overstabilise as it is the free chlorine that does the work, not the stabalised chlorine
  • It is always good to stabilize the pool water to 40% do not over stabilize; it is the free chlorine doing the work, and not the stabilized chlorine.
