How Does A Salt Chlornator Work?

To increase or reduce the chlorine level is not an easy job on your hand. As you must buy a packge of  chemicals first, then transport it, store it, finally you need to add it into the pool by yourself. Of course you have buy a chlorine level tester to get the accurate chlorine level of pool water.

Why we have to put up with it every time? We can use a better solution to manage the chlorine level like BLH salt chlorine generator.  You got the same safe and sanitary pool, other wise , the pool water will be clean, soft and no harm to your eyes and swimsuit.

You maybe wonder how does it work?
When you have installed the chlorine generator in your pool, the only thing you need to do is put a little common salt into your pool, the salt dosage can be found as described in the manual. Now the salt chlorinator will auto  electrolyze the saltwater and generate the chlorine which will sterilize the pool.

There is no need to worry about the salt level, which will be very low in your pool, and the chlorine will finally convert to the salt again, so we only waste a little salt and get clean and soft pool water indeed.

Why You Should Use Salt Chlorine Generator

To use chlorine to sanitize the swimming pool is popular and effective, But it is hard to buy and store chlorine, So the salt chlorinator emerged, Which can convert the common salt to sodium hypochlorite for sanitizing the pool and then reconvert these into salt.

There are several reasons we choose the salt chlorine generator not other sanitizers, We have listed some below:
1. You spent no extra fees on the whole circular saltwater system except some common salt expenses.
2. No need to add chlorine and maintaince the chlorine level anymore. No need to buy and store chlorine anymore, As we know that chlorine will hurt skin and eyes.
3. There is no hassles to maintain the salt chlorinator, you should clean cell periodically the smooth functioning of the saltwater system.

How To Troubleshoot a Salt Chlorine Generator

To pinpoint the source of the failure can help you solve the problems by yourself, or the factory techs can repair chlorinator faster when you provide these infomations.

At First, you need to check the phosphates and make certain that the cyanuric acid is up to par If needed, buy the PhosFree treatment and get the reading below 100 PPB. Then, maybe the algae in the shallow areas of the pool, it's easy to attack it now but hard in summer.

After external checks, we need  to figure out the problem inside of chlorinator. The first thing is checking the power source and ensure that it is getting power, Not working? check to see if the chlorinator control unit has either a reset button or an internal fuse. Push the button or blow the fuse, it can be good now.

Second, you should check if  cell is working well. It's not difficult to do if your chlorinator has a clear cell, if not, as we all know most brands  have cells that last about 8,000 hours, some better brands will install the longer life time like 25000 hours, check it and you can find your cell if the end of its life or not, Please note that send it to pool stores is not a clever choice.

At last, closely examine the electrical connections between the cell and the control and between the flow switch (if present) and the control. Make these clean and dry.

How many hours does the pump run every day?
1. Each pump requires sufficient running time of the circulating pump so that the water in the tank passes through the filter approximately 1.5-2 times per day.
2. The running time of the pump should normally be at least one hour every ten degrees outside.
1. That is, the temperature peaks at 90 degree, and the pump is operated for at least 9 hours.
