Spa Salt Water Chlorine Production Test
We finished our comparison of chlorine production between the Saltron Mini and the SmarterSpa/ChlorMaker. The Saltron Mini makes between 8 and 11 grams of chlorine per day and the SmarterSpa makes 30 to 35 grams per day. The Youtube video shows how to perform the test and it about 10 minutes. The SmarterSpa makes about 3 times the chlorine as the Saltron Mini meaning it will be able to handle a larger spa and most like run at a lower power level which will increase the life span of the titanium plates.
ControlOMatic Passes ETL and CSA Safety Testing
Just got the word that we passed UL and CSA testing. This has taken over 3 years, partly because of product changes. Units submitted for testing include TechniChlor, ChlorMaker, SmarterSpa and MegaChlor. We can now start PMRA testing for approval in Canada. Our chemical controllers (PoolWarden and MiniWarden) passed the safety testing 2 years ago, now all products except for SmarterPool are certified.
Hot Tub and Spa Salt Water Chlorine Generators
Salt water chlorination is a desirable alternative to packaged chlorine and can provide a reduction in operating costs to maintain the spa as well as a much better experience when in the water. Some of the benefits include:
- Lower maintenance
- Easy to adjust chlorine production
- Typically works with NACL or NABR
- Safe for the spa and equipment
- Health benefits with mineral salts such as Himalayan Pink or Dead Sea salt
- Soothing to the skin
- Reduced eye irritation
- Very low salt level, most likely not detectable
- Softer, smoother feeling water
- Reduced odor, usually only when the cover is removed
- Easy on the hair, probably will not turn green
The ChlorMaker includes 10 power levels, salt level indication, external control box, boost mode and automatic cleaning. Easy to use buttons and LED’s for status.
MegaChlor & MegaChlor-CD
ControlOMatic’s first large saltwater system for pools. The MegaChlor makes about 0.25 pounds of chlorine per day and is available as a plug-n-play drape over version for pools and swim spas up to 17,000 gallons. The CD option replaces the standard electrode with the chlorine detection version and the MegaChlor-CD will start the next production cycle when the chlorine is low enough.
Pool and Spa Chemical Automation
Chemical Automation refers to the automatic monitoring and control of the sanitizer and pH levels in water, in order to maintain clean, safe water at all times, while achieving significant reductions in the cost of chemicals, maintenance and repairs. Chemical automation is now recognized as a necessity for all commercial and public pools and spas, as well as for quality residential installations. ControlOMatic systems offer the most advanced line of electronic controllers for monitoring and control of water chemistry. For complete details please visit our PoolWarden website.
ControlOMatic's chemical automation is state of the art and can easily connect to the Internet for data collection and remote configuration.
MiniWarden Single Pool Controller
The MiniWarden is a pH and ORP controller with temperature display and many features not found in a lower cost chemical controller. ORP control with input voltage or dry contact for salt systems or solenoid valves using a transformer.
PoolWarden Two Pool Controller
The PoolWarden is a single or dual pool pH, ORP and Temperature controller with many advanced features not found even in more expensive chemical controllers. ORP control with input voltage or dry contact for salt systems or solenoid valves using a transformer. The PoolWarden also has LSI pH control and cyanuric acid ORP offset.
The SmarterPool is a pH, PPM and temperature controller. PPM control with 24VAC input voltage or dry contact for salt systems. Free chlorine measurements are not affected by pH, conditioner (CYA) or salt water chlorine generators.
