Pool water passes through the chlorine generator cell, the salt in the water is turned into Hypochlorous acid. Hypochlorous acid is the exact same component that is produced when any chlorine is added to pool water, whether it is sticks, tablets, granular or liquid. As the water returns to the pool, it will introduce the newly produced chlorine to the body of water preventing algae, bacteria and killing micro-organisms, creating a safe and sanitary swimming environment for you and your family.
OK? How does it really work?
This mild , pleasant saline water is sanitized through the process of electrolysis. As mentioned above. This electrolytic cell, through the use of a small electric current, breaks down the water into its basic elements, Hydrogen and Oxygen. By adding small quantities of granulated salt (much like household table salt-NaCI), Hypochlorous Acid (common clorine) is produced. During the process, the Hypochlorous Acid (Chlorine) is ultimately converted back to salt. Thus, the salt does not get "used up". Salt only needs to be "topped off" once or twice a year and only to replace salt lost due to water splash-out and/or filter backwash.
Salt in My Pool?
The salt level required to maintain a safe, chlorinated pool is about 2500 to 4000 PPM (parts per million). The human body cannot taste salt until the PPM is around 5000. The amount of salt in the pool not noticeable. Once the salt is added to the pool, there is no need to add salt on a yearly basis unless the pool is drained or a significant amount of water is removed. Also, the salt level is low enough so there is no danger of equipment corrosion. Chlorine generator users also report the water is softer, leaving a more refreshed feeling after swimming.
