Pool Essentials - Salt Water Chlorinators

Using chlorine is the proven way to destroy bacteria, viruses and algae in a pool. A Chlorinator produces its own chlorine when mildly salted water is passed through the Salt Cell (salt is made up of two elements- sodium and chlorine). The chlorine dissolves instantly in the pool water, going to work immediately to safely sanitise the pool.

A Chlorinator also produces a small amount of ozone which gives your pool that added sparkle and freshness.

  • The system requires only a small amount of salt to be added periodically to compensate for normal backwashing and topping up of the pool water.
  • Easy Installation to new and existing pools
  • The System is uncomplicated in operation and can be easily and quickly added to any new or existing pool.
  • The Salt Cell is simply fitted to the plumbing of your pool between the filter and water outlet and the Control Unit is mounted adjacent to the Cell for easy monitoring and control of your pool's hygiene.

Three important factors influence which model is right for you: pool size, number of bathers per day and climatic conditions. Daily operation of the chlorination and filtration system will vary during unusually hot periods or heavy bather loads requiring longer running of the system.

By choosing the right model to cope with these factors, you can minimise the filtration system running times and save further costs.

Your local pool shop or pool builder can advise you as to which model best suits your needs.

Pool Essentials - Sand Filters

Adding a small amount of aluminum sulfate or "alum", through the skimmer will form a gelatinous layer on top of the sand bed, useful in cleaning up an undesirable water condition. When your pressure gauge shows a reading 8 - 10 lbs. over its clean, start-up reading, it is time to backwash the captured dirt out of the filter.


Pool Essentials - Pool Pumps

The pool pump draws water from your pool into the skimmer box, where it?s passed through a fine strainer basket the hair and lint pot and onto the impeller. This will ensure that your pool runs at an optimum level, resulting in fewer problems, easier maintenance, lower energy costs and longer equipment life. The hair and lint pot needs to be emptied and cleaned on a regular basis throughout the swimming season.
