Why Salt Chlorine Generation?

The most popular addition to pool maintenance in the last 20 years is the introduction of the chlorine generator system. There are big advantages for pool owners that use this system of pool water sanitation, often referred to as a “salt water pool”. The chlorine generator produces chlorine for the pool which prevents the pool owner from having to purchase, handle or store a potentially hazardous material. Chlorine generators have the ability to produce chlorine constantly (when the pump is running). The result is a residual of chlorine in the pool that prevents algae from growing. The secret of maintaining an efficient chlorine generating system is keeping the cell free of calcium and mineral deposits. A salt-water pool (one with a chlorine generator) provides the swimmer with water that is smooth and skin that feels smooth leaves the swimmer feeling more refreshed.

How Salt Chlorine Generators Work?

There are two components to a salt chlorine generator: the power center and its salt cell. Chlorine is generated through the process of electrolysis. Electrolysis is defined as a process in which electric current passes through a substance and causes a chemical change. As pool water containing salt passes through the chlorine generator cell an electrical charge, generated by the power center, is applied to the electrolytic plates creating a current flow. This causes a chemical reaction that releases chlorine gas, which dissolves into the water. Water with pure chlorine is then returned to your pool.
