Hot Tub and Spa Saltwater Chlorine Generators
Chlorine generation from salt water has been around for a very long time and is very popular for swimming pools since the early 1970s. ControlOMatic introduced the first chlorine generator specifically designed for spas and hot tubs back in 2005, the first model was called the ColorChlor, in addition to making chlorine it also provided lights which worked well for older spas.
Saltwater 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. 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.
