OVERVIEW
The CaliMar Platinum Series salt chlorine generators have the greatest chlorine output and longest warranty in the industry. This has only come about by CaliMar working closely with the best salt chlorine generator on the market to bring about the most user friendly, workhorse of a salt chlorinator.
 
The history of the CaliMar Platinum is rooted in the commercial salt chlorination segment of the swimming pool industry. Using revolutionary design and re-engineered components the CaliMar Platinum salt chlorinator was developed for a lower price point, stronger warranty and better, more reliable chlorine output. After all, reliably knowing your pool is safely chlorinated with natural chlorine is peace of mind.
 
How the Platinum Chlorinator Works:
Common salt (sodium chloride) is made up of two elements, sodium and chloride. When the CaliMar Platinum is installed, a measured quantity of salt is dissolved in the pool water to create a mild saline solution. As part of the daily filtration cycle, the pool water is passed through the electrolytic cell to produce chlorine, which is instantly dissolved into the water. The chlorine generator also produces ozone and hydrogen in the cell as by-products.
 
In simple, non-technical terms, the chlorine instantly starts to destroy bacteria, viruses and algae, after doing this it reverts back into dissolved salt. This cycle continues as new chlorine is produced from the salt water in the electrolytic cell, sanitizing the pool and changing once more back into dissolved salt. Every day, when the CaliMar Platinum system and the filtration system are switched on, dust and debris are trapped by the filter and the chlorinator sanitizes the water to make it safe and sparkling clean
 
Salt Requirements: The CaliMar Platinum is engineered to operate in a broad salt range with a minimum of 3,000 PPM; a salt residual of 4,000 to 4,500 PPM is recommended at all times for peak efficiency and best results. The CaliMar Platinum can also handle special application salt levels of up to 35,000 PPM without any adverse effects to the unit.
 
NOTE: High salt levels above 8,000 PPM may cause corrosion problems with metallic fixtures, light rings, ladders and handrails. We recommend the use of a pool salt, which can be purchased at pool stores and most hardware outlets. Granular salt, table salt, solar salt or water conditioner pellets can also be used but will have different dissolve rates; the salt you use should contain a minimum purity of 99% sodium chloride. Do not use salt that contains iodine or anti-caking agents like YPS, which can cause some discoloration of fittings and pool surface finishes. NOTE: Do not use rock salt due to its high levels of impurities.

Can I use this on an above ground pool?
A shopper on Jul 17, 2019
Is this everything I need and how long before I have to buy a replacement cell?
Jane H on Dec 6, 2020
BEST ANSWER: you need to buy one with a higher "gallons" capacity then actual pool size, otherwise, cleaning the cell every 2 months just to keep it running properly. mine lasted 3 years and still running o.k. frequent and consistent maintenance is a must.
Can I use this unit to replace my Hayward Swimplus unit? Just replacing the salt cell again and this unit looks to be better? 17,000 inground pool
