The Hayward Aqua Rite chlorine generator is a complete solution to turn your swimming pool into a salt water swimming pool. How does it do this? Well, it automatically monitors the chlorine and pH levels of your pool and creates chlorine generated from everyday salt via the process of electrolysis. It’s a self-renewing system that has many advantages over a traditional chlorine pool, which we’ll discuss late in the article.
What is a salt water generator?
It’s a device that uses dissolved salt (2,500–6,000 ppm) as a storage for the chlorination system. A chlorine generator converts dissolved salt (NaCl) to the optimal amount of chlorine via electrolysis. A saltwater pool uses a chlorine generator (cell) to produce chlorine instead of the traditional method of adding it directly to your pool. A cholorine generator does indeed produce chlorine, alongside hypochlorous acid (HClO) and sodium hypochlorite (NaClO), but the water it produces has less salinity than a human teardrop. [Read more…]

The days of using liquid or tablet chlorine in your swimming pool is a thing of the past — well, at least it should be. Chlorine is a harsh chemical that impacts humans and pets negatively.
