Swimming pool chlorine generators (also referred to as salt water pool chlorinators) create their own chlorine in the pool water, meaning you don’t need to add chlorine to your pool manually.

Utilising a chlorine generator 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. Most importantly, day in and day out, a salt water chlorine generator will keep your pool sparkling clean and sanitised automatically.

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.

We stock the range of Zodiac Tri-XO chlorine generators, these require 4-5,000ppm (parts per million) salt to produce chlorine effectively. This is about the same level as a tear drop. As a comparison sea water is 35,000ppm salt.
