Salt for Swimming Pool Chlorine Generators

Salt for Swimming Pool Chlorine Generators

Recent years have seen explosive growth of automatic swimming pool chlorine generators which use salt as a method of keeping swimming pool water clean and safe. They work by passing a weak electric current through pool water containing salt (sodium chloride) thereby generating sodium hypochlorite. Normally between 3kg and 5kg of salt for every 1,000 litres (220 gallons) of swimming pool volume is required. Recommended dose varies according to the equipment used so it's important that the instructions provided by the manufacturer of your chlorine generator are followed.

Please contact the manufacurer of your equipment for information on which type of salt to use in your pool. There are a great number of models and manufacturers each with their own set of recomendations, and so we can't advise you on which type of salt use, though we will probably be able to supply it once you know.
