Salt Chlorinator (SSC series), are an alternative means of sanitizing your pool with chlorine using the process of electrolysis. The electrolysis process is achieved by passing the salt water solution through an electrolytic cell which converts sodium chloride (salt) in the water into chlorine gas which, when dissolved in the water become sodium hypochlorite (liquid chlorine).
Safe and respecting the environment, this technology brings you :
Relaxation: Your pool is automatically disinfected
Safety: Reduction in chlorine storage and handling
Comfort: Clean, safe and crystal-clear water
Health and well-being: Therapeutic, saltwater does not irritate eyes and dry out skin
Salt chlorinators are now the accepted standard for pool sanitizing. And with AstralPool’s VX Salt Chlorinator you get a benchmark on control, convenience and reliability.
To be accurate, salt or minerals don’t sanitize the pool, chlorine does. Salt (in the form of sodium chloride) is dissolved into your pool water and converted by the VX Salt Chlorinator into chlorine which sanitizes your pool. The salts or minerals, in roughly the same solution as a tear drop, pass through the electrolytic plates in the VX chlorinator cell to form chlorine which kills all the contaminants within the pool and prevents bacteria and algae from forming. What a nice solution – particularly when some of these minerals and salts can be so good for the health of your family just by being in your pool water. The result is pure, crystal clear, soft feeling water and happy, healthy swimmers.
Using the Zodiac range of chlorine generators means you no longer need to purchase, transport, store or manually add chlorine as part of your routine maintenance. Furthermore, a chlorine generator also helps to eliminate red eyes, skin irritations and harsh chemical odours which can be caused by conventional chlorinated pools.
Chlorine generators use electrolysis to sanitise your swimming pool, by passing salt water through an electrolytic cell which converts chloride contained in the salt water into chlorine.
A Zodiac chlorine generator requres 4-5,000ppm (parts per million) salt or around 6-8 bags a year to produce chlorine effectively. This is about the same level as a tear drop. As a comparison sea water is 35,000ppm salt.
Most importantly, day in and day out a Zodiac salt water chlorine generator will keep your pool sparkling clean and sanitised automatically.
