Original Price $399.00
Harness the power of the sun and enjoy the savings year round! Just add salt and you are ready. SolarChlor's dual patented process transforms simple salt into chlorine all day; even when cloudy, while providing algae inhibiting minerals 24/7. The additional benefits include safe and easy installation with no programming or plumbing, no electrical hook-ups, hazards or electrical consumption, no changes to your existing equipment, pump or filtering system and no more large chemical storage or handling.
SolarChlor is the solution to the ever rising energy and chemical costs related to maintaining crystal clear water and will quickly transform your pool into an economic paradise that you'll enjoy for years to come. Comparably, the savings continues to mount as other systems or methods require constant energy, pump run time, maintenance, costly replacement parts or expensive mineral cartridge replacements.
SolarChlor further enhances saving by extending the life of your existing equipment in reduced run time and operation and conserves water by eliminating the need to dilute the pool due to high conditioner levels. The SolarChlor XTi model incorporates the latest in high output solar technology that is both shatter resistant and produces non-shocking DC voltage all day long.
The SolarChlor is a eco-friendly, clean energy product that can reduce green house emissions by as much as 800 Kg per year per pool which can also allow you the additional satisfaction of recouping your investment in the first few months of use. Sun, Salt and SolarChlor equals the perfect pool.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Do I have to make any changes to our current pool system?
A. No changes have to be made to your current equipment, filtering or pump system. Simply add the salt to the pool and you're ready. There is absolutely no need to change out your existing pool water or wait for the chlorine level to dissipate as this is what saltwater generators generate.
Q. How much salt needs to be added, and how do I add it?
A. Add salt directly to the pool water while brushing. Do not add the salt to the skimmer as this will clog the pump. 34 lb. per 1000 gallons is suggested to obtain 4000 PPM salinity level however, the salinity level can be lowered or raised depending on the amount of gallons to be treated. For optimal results on 15,000 gallons a 4000 PPM level is suggested depending on climate conditions.
Q. What kind of salt do I use, and where do I get it?
A. Salt can be purchased at Sam’s Club, Walmart or any hardware store and should be the granular form for quick dissolving when added to the water. Salt crystals/rock salt can be used when adding directly to the bowl housing on the SolarChlor unit as this dissolves at a slower rate and will last upward to a week. Do not use a potassium based salt.
Q. How long will the salt last in the pool, and how often will I be adding it?
A. Salt does not evaporate out of the pool. It must be back-washed out, splashed out or spilled over by rain. The average user may add an additional 2-4 bags of salt per year to maintain proper levels depending on climate conditions.
Q. Can I still use regular chlorine tablets with my pool, and will I have a saltwater pool?
A. You can still use chlorine tabs with this system if and when needed but your dependence on chlorine will be reduced significantly as well as your energy use on the pump system by as much as 80% or more. Salt can be added directly to the unit via the attached salt bowl assembly or dissolved in the water for a saltwater pool or both.
Q. What shock can I use to shock a saltwater pool?
A. With a SolarChlor unit you can use any form of approved sanitizer from granular to concentrated liquid bleach. As with other in-line generators we recommend that SaltShock be used as this will not foul the cell plates, damage the cells, cloud the water and reduces pH.
Q. What are the benefits of SolarChlor system versus other saltwater systems?
A. Simple - No plumbing is involved; no electrical use or hookup is involved and no expensive maintenance or constant upkeep is involved. The other systems can cost as much as $50 a month in energy to operate as well as $100-$300 a month in energy required to run the pool pump. The savings really add up quickly with the SolarChlor system...not to mention the chemical savings as well.
Q. Can I use a SolarChlor unit with my pre-existing saltwater generator?
A. You sure can. This would save you substantially in energy usage and monthly bills. Just keep the salinity level at the pre-existing manufactures recommended level, turn down the pump run time and enjoy the energy savings.
Q. What benefits will a saltwater pool bring?
A. Saltwater is gentle on the eyes, hair and skin and the strong chlorine smell will be eliminated. You will also enjoy the benefits of feeling rejuvenated as saltwater is an electrolyte that will leave you feeling refreshed and energized.
