Salt Water Generator For an Alternative to constantly adding and adding harsh chemicals to your pool,
ChlorEase Saltwater Chlorinator for Above-Ground Pools
Saltwater chlorination is a process of sanitizing water, using chlorine that is produced in the pool water from ordinary salt. Developed in Australia over 25 years ago, the technology is utilized in over 90% of all pools and spas in Australia today. The process occurs via electrolysis, using ordinary salt and a device called a saltwater chlorinator – also referred to as a chlorine generator, salt chlorine generator, or salt chlorinator.
Initially, a low concentration of salt is added to the water. As water passes over the chlorinator’s specially coated plates, an electric current breaks down the salt and water into their basic elements to form hypochlorous acid, which is the active sanitizer in all forms of chlorine. The chlorine kills algae and bacteria in the water and oxidizes the waste. Thereafter, the chlorine regenerates itself back to salt and begins the process over again in a virtually unending cycle. Since salt does not evaporate, an occasional addition of salt is needed only to replace what is lost due to splash out, pump out, draining or backwashing.
CHLOREASE ADVANTAGES OVER TRADITIONAL PACKAGED CHLORINE
Eliminates Chlorine Handling & Storage
ChlorEase makes chlorine right in the pool water, automatically and continuously, so you no longer have to buy, store or handle dangerous packaged chlorine. Fire hazards associated with the storage of dry packaged chlorine are eliminated, as are any risks of potential contact with these chemicals by young children. No more lugging pails and buckets of chlorine to and from the store and the pool; and the days of forgetting to add chlorine to the pool become a thing of the past.
Better Water Quality
Many common water chemistry problems are the result of insufficient sanitization. Because ChlorEase helps keep a consistent Free Chlorine residual (1-3 ppm), your water is less likely to experience problems associated with periods of very high or low chlorine levels, such as algae growth or bather discomfort. Additionally, salt has a softening effect, just like a water softener, so hair and skin feels soft and silky rather than dry and brittle as with packaged chlorine.
No Red Eyes, Itchy Skin or Chlorine Odors
In pools sanitized with liquid or dry chlorine, the residue buildup (chloramines) from the oxidized contaminants may cause red eyes, itchy skin or rashes, and “ a chlorine smell”. In these pools, chloramines must be destroyed by super-chlorination or shocking. In a ChlorEase pool, as water flows through the unit, it is constantly shocked because of the powerful sanitizing action that occurs in the electrolytic cell. With chloramines constantly being destroyed, the irritating side effects are greatly reduced or eliminated.
Simplified Water Chemistry
Chlorine stabilizer prevents chlorine from being destroyed too quickly by the sun. When using stabilized chlorine (such as Trichlor tablets or sticks), stabilizer levels increase over time and chlorine becomes less effective. A ChlorEase pool gives you control over stabilizer levels since you add it as needed. Controlled stabilizer levels, together with consistent chlorine levels, make water chemistry easier to maintain.
After the initial cost of the ChlorEase saltwater chlorinator, you no longer have to purchase expensive packaged chlorine season after season. Aside from the initial startup, salt is only added to replace what is lost due to splash out, backwashing, pump out or draining, making the additional salt expense about $10-20 yearly. And, depending on climate and usage conditions, cells can last up to 5 years, and can be replaced. The only other cost is for electricity and that is very modest.
Salt is a safe and natural chemical. ChlorEase recycles salt over and over so there are no by-product wastes added to the environment.

ChlorEase Saltwater Chlorinator For Above-Ground Pools uses the same saltwater chlorination technology as all other salt chlorine generators in the market. Chlorine is produced on-site by the electrolytic breakdown of salt in the water. The ChlorEase unit is submerged in the pool water rather than plumbed inline with the filtration system and is designed for above-ground pools only. ChlorEase saltwater chlorinator is a stand-alone sanitizing system that attaches conveniently beneath the top rail of both new and existing pools, and hangs down along the inner pool wall. It plugs into any 110 Volt GFI protected outlet.
ChlorEase is backed by a Three-Year Limited Warranty by RecWaterTec
