IntelliChlor® Salt Chlorinator uses common table salt to produce all the chlorine a pool needs, safely, effectively, and automatically. Same sanitation performance as manual chlorine addition without the drawbacks. No need for customers to buy, transport and store chlorine compounds.

Electrolytic chlorine generation (or salt chlorine generation) with IntelliChlor Salt Chlorinator is the easiest, most effective, and convenient way to keep your pool water sparkling clean and sanitized. The IntelliChlor Salt Chlorinator uses table salt to produce all the chlorine your pool needs, right in your pool - safely, effectively, and automatically.

An Eco SelectChoice: Using only natural table salt, the IntelliChlor Salt Chlorinator automatic chlorine generator creates pure chlorine in the pool and eliminates the need to buy, store, and add harsh chlorine products manually. In effect, fewer resources are used in the production, packaging, and transportation of these chemical compounds.

  • Cell blades rated for 10,000 hours of operation five years of reliable chlorine output under normal operating conditions
  • Full diagnostic capabilities, including cell life tracking that communicates remaining hours of cell life in real-time. Captures all performance data daily (production settings, hours of operation, chlorine output, cell cleaning cycles, salt readings, and water temperature averages)
  • Push-button operation and easy-to-view displays enable fast checking of salt levels, cell cleanliness, sanitizer output, and water flow
  • Automatic shut-off feature protects the unit and prolongs cell life under low water temperature conditions

is this system all that i will need to convert my pool to saltwater?
dean n on Mar 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, if you have a pool pump already. You will need sufficient salt for your pool size. Make sure that your pool qty is no more then 85 % capacity of the size of chlorine generator. Object is not to work the chlorination 24/7.
What should I try next? The Inspect Cell light keeps flashing. I soaked in acid over night.
Gary M on Mar 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Gary, did you see scaling on the fins inside the cell to indicate it needed cleaning? If not it did not need cleaning. You said you soaked it in acid overnight. The cleaning kit I had said to only soak until the foaming stops. Going beyond that would allow the acid to dissolve the finning inside the cell. I hope your cleaning kit was different than mine. Good luck.
show the error codes and what they mean. What is a single red light?
A shopper on Dec 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: My guess is that since it is getting colder out the instructions say that the chlorinator stops operating because chlorine demand drops when the temperature drops. I believe the trigger is water temp below 54 degrees is usually where my light comes on.
can I plug this intellichlor generator into the GFI plug on the control panel?
A shopper on Mar 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I Had an electrician wire the power supply t a circuit breaker panel in the pool house. Overall I have been happy with the unit.
My pool has 40k gallons. Should I order 40 or 60k cell?
Max d on Apr 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: My suggestion would be to order the larger unit. I have a 20,000 gal pool and use a 40,000 generator. Unless the weather is very hot, the lowest setting keeps the water at the correct chlorine level. Even in the hottest weather, a 40% setting was all that was required.The unit needed no cleaning after two seasons which I think is a result of the lower settings.
What Pentair salt systems should I use to replace my Zodiac lm3 24 salt system?

Pentagram Intellichlor salt generator review
My new unit came complete, with easy to follow directions. It was a snap to install (my pool guy helped me) and set up and does an exceptional job. Generates very well and easy to use, with clear status indicator lights. Pool Supply was great to deal with. Good price, timely availability and good service.

Great product
I have 25,000 gallons and this company recommended that I purchase a system that could handle a higher volume. I was hesitant at first but after a month, I regret I didn't do it sooner.

Install was OK, operation is easy and the pool looks good. Not adding any chlorine!

This unit is one of the best investments I have made since owning pools for over 45 years. Prior to purchasing this unit and living in a relatively hot climate, I constantly struggled with proper pool chlorination to prevent algae growth. I originally owned one if the first salt water chorine generators with little success and quickly converted back to a freshwater system with manual chlorination. On the recommendation of a pool maintenance professional I converted back to a saltwater system featuring the Pentair 4000 generator and never looked back. I have used this system for two years now and I am very satisfied with its performance. NO ALGAE! I highly recommend this product. When compared to the total cost manual chlorination, it is not that much more expensive and a great time and frustration saver. We love the silky feel of the saltwater also. Not like the ocean. They say about 1/10th as salty. Great unit with great performance.

Great product, easy install, could be better with setting recommendations.
I’ve installed a lot of things in my life but this, by far, was one of the simplest. In fact, the only thing that took long we’re running to the store to buy 1-1/2 to 2” bushings (the cell comes ready for 2” piping) and adding the salt. Everything else worked great, instructions were clear, and after about 2 hours (with a power reset) it started reading that my salt levels were good. It has been installed now for two weeks and I’m impressed so far. My only drawback is that the system doesn’t come with recommended settings based on pool size. Maybe Pentair could Make this available in the future

Giving this a chance
Giving this salt chlorine generator a chance because my old Jandy one was too old and decided to try a new product. Various great reviews on its name and happy customers etc., so I hope I'm one of them, so far the chlorination has been great and accurate.
