These days, technology has advanced pool chlorination – a necessary task to keep water sanitized – to the point where simple table salt can be added to the water and converted into the proper and steady level of chlorine. These systems help eliminate the need to “shock” the pool with hyper-doses of chemicals that can agitate the skin and eyes of swimmers. There are also alternate methods of maintaining your pool that just automates the delivery of chlorine tablets.
Here are several pool chlorination systems that will put some added fun into your pool season.
AquaRite is made by Hayward, one of the most-trusted brands in pool chlorination systems. This model delivers savings up to 50 percent over traditional chlorine. It’s designed for pools up to 25,000 gallons.
For larger pools
This BLUE WORKS generator is compatible with competing manufacturers’ systems, including Hayward’s products. It offers adjustable chlorine output – a nice feature considering different seasons require different levels of pool sanitation. It’s designed for pools up to 40,000 gallons.
For smaller pools
This system is specifically designed for above-ground pools up to 15,000 gallons. We can tell you about the science – electrocatalytic oxidation splits water molecules into highly powerful oxidants – or you can trust us that the result is soft, clean water. That means no smell, no more faded swimming gear and goodbye irritated eyes.
A different approach
If a saltwater conversion system is beyond your budget, then this automatic chemical feeder is a good option. Unlike the other options here, it doesn’t convert salt into chlorine – rather it automates the delivery of actual chlorine through tablets. This particular system can hold up to 9 pounds of chlorine or bromine tablets.
