Product Description

PureLine Crystal Pure Salt Chlorine Generator PL7700

Crystal Pure Salt System by PureLine

The PureLine Crystal Pure Salt System makes the process of chlorinating the pool a breeze for you. When your pump runs, you will be producing chlorine, ensuring a steady dose into your pool water. The more consistent your chlorine levels are in your pool, the fewer chemicals you will use overall. Free yourself and your pool guests from the itchy, dry feeling of regular chlorine. With a salt water chlorine generator, the water feels smooth and won't leave a white residue on your skin. The Crystal Pure generator cell easily plumbs in-line and has quick disconnect unions for easy access. 

Features:

Optional Add-On Accessories

Salt Cell Cleaning Stand

This cleaning stand simplifies cell cleaning and eliminates having to soak cell in a bucket of muriatic acid solution. This Cleaning stand is used for PureLine Crystal Pure salt cells. You should clean your salt cell every 2 months to avoid calcium build up on your salt cell. By cleaning your salt cell regularly you will prolong the life of the cell. Also if you get too much calcium build up on the salt cell then the system will stop producing chlorine, regular cleanings ensure that your salt system will not stop producing chlorine.

Straight Pipe Place Holder - Dummy Cell

This straight pipe holder also called a dummy cell is used for several scenarios which we have listed below.

Winter: It is suggested that in areas of the country that you close your pool for the winter that you replace your normal cell with this dummy cell, the reason being is that the standard cell is expensive and by removing the standard cell you will prolong the cell's life.

Cell Cleaning: When you remove your normal cell for cleaning it is nice to have the dummy cell as you can replace the normal cell with the dummy cell so you continue to filter your pool while you clean your cell.

Spring Start-Up: The dummy cell is great to use during spring start up as quite often the pool can be quite dirty and you don't want large dirt and debris to get lodged in your standard salt cell.

I have a Hayward Swimpure 40,000 gal system and the panel seems to have died. It shows my salt level, but the other lights have gone dead. The cell was replaced recently with a generic replacement. This Pureline system appears to have the same cell and plug configuration as my existing system. If I purchase this system will my existing cell be compatible with this system, or should I discard/recycle that cell?

Can a salt system be used with a stainless filter tank?
 Reply

A  Answered on 10/9/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Joe S.

Fourth, salt can be corrosive to pool equipment and some types of stone decks.  It is important to maintain proper salt levels and consider “salt friendly” pool gear.  There are rails, ladders and diving boards designed to be resistant to corrosion.  Lights with plastic face rings instead of stainless steel are advisable as well as heaters with cupro nickel (instead of copper) heat exchangers and to add an Anode.

How long should I expect my new Hayward GLX-Cell-15-W Turbo Cell Salt Chlorination Cell to last in my middle sized in ground home pool before it needs replacement? 3 years? More? Less? Can it be recharged/refilled without replacement? Thank you.
 Reply

A  Answered on 6/6/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

The cell life expectancy does vary depending on usage, chemistry, and model. On the average, they last approximately 3-5 years. There are some that are only under warranty for 1 year hence having a short life span. To determine which model yours is you will need to locate the serial number on the cell and advise us or contact Hayward so they can confirm for you.

Why the two choices in voltage? Which is most preferred?
 Reply

A  Answered on 5/18/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

We offer the PL7700 Crystal Pure Salt System to be wired either 115V or 230V as some pool equipment pads have 115V electrical service run to it, while others have 230V service run to it. To be clear you do not need to purchase a separate model for 115v and a separate model for 230V, the PL7700 can be wired for either 115V or 230V. There really is not a preference on 115v vs. 230v it is more a matter of which service you currently have run to the pool equipment. Many times people will wire the salt system into there pump timer, so in this scenario you would need to wire the salt system to the same voltage as your pump.

why does my system read 2600 ppm when pool store test reads 3600 ppm system says low salt
 Reply

A  Answered on 5/16/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Alex V.

James, A salt system will give you a running average of the salt reading so it will never be an exact match to the reading you would get from a salt test. If the reading is lower than what you are testing, please double check that the cell size programmed to the board is correct. The PL7700 should be programmed to read F15.

Hi, Mike. If you're referring to the cell, it's 13-3/8" in length. I would not consider the Crystal Pure system, top of the line because there are more advanced systems on the market. This would be considered an entry-level system, a basic chlorine generator.

What should I do with the in line chlorinator (tablets)? Can I just leave it there and not fill it anymore?
 Reply

A  Answered on 5/7/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Jeff, Yes you could leave the chlorinator in-line and not fill it anymore, this would allow you to have the chlorinator for any emergencies. The other option would be to remove the chlorinator as some chlorinators like the Hayward really have the plumbing reduce down when water goes through the chlorinator which can put more stress on your pump and affect your flow rate.

Other than the warranty, what is the difference between the Crystal Pure Salt System and the Crystal Pure Heavy Duty Salt System? Thanks for your help.
 Reply

A  Answered on 4/24/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

The Heavy duty is the same system as the standard but with two main advantages...1. The warranty is 3 year on the Heavy Duty Vs. 2 years on the Standard 2. The cell life on the Heavy Duty is 10,000 hrs. Vs. 7,000 hrs. on the Standard. The extra lifespan on the heavy duty salt cell is due to more Ruthenium coating on the cell plates. Cell life works as follows, say you run your pump 8 hours per day and you set your Crystal Pure to 50% chlorine output then the cell will be running for 4 hrs. per day, thus using up 4 hrs. of cell life per day in this example.

Hi Vic, Many people with a copper heat exchangers use salt with no problem. I have had a salt system with a copper heater exchanger on my pool for 7 years without issue. However a good security policy would be to go with a Sacrificial Zinc Anode The zinc anode sacrifices itself so it takes on any corrosion and not the heat exchanger or any other pool equipment.

What is the daily electricity consumption in KWatt for the 40,000 gallon unit?
 Reply

A  Answered on 4/15/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Michel, When in use the salt cell is generating chlorine, the average amperage is between 21 and 27 amps, and the voltage typically falls between 2.5 and 7.8 volts. Wattage can be found by multiplying these two values, so on the low end you're looking at about 53 watts and on the high end you're looking at about 211 watts. These number vary because if you run the system at 10% chlorine output the wattage is lower vs. running the system at 100% chlorine output. Based on the #'s above if you ran the system 4 hours per day you are looking between .21 to .84 killowatt hours per day. I hope this helps.

I want to convert my pool to salt water with the PL770 system. The main motive is to reduce the maintenance requirements (I'm my own pool guy) and was thinking about a pH controller as well. I searched your site and it was very confusing as some of them seemed to be integrated into the salt water controller. What pH control system would you recommend to go with the PL770 salt water system?
 Reply

A  Answered on 4/13/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Peter, Sorry for any confusion on the website. On my pool I have the Crystal Pure Salt System and I have tested a few different pH systems. What I have landed on and that I like the best is going with something simple like this 15 Gallon Stenner Tank with Acid Pump on this system you set the output on the pump to dose a certain amount of pH to the pool per day for example .3 gallons acid per day. Previously I had an expensive controller which would actually test the pH and then dose the acid based on the pH reading but I had quite a few problems with this system as the probes never read accurately thus under dosing or over dosing the pool. The system that tested the water was really expensive in the $2,000 range and eventually, the controller got fried from a lightning strike. After the controller went out I purchased the basic Stenner System and I am much happier with it.

I have a 35,000 gallon pool. I run my pump on a timer and I understand that this unit only generates chlorine while the pump is running. How long would the pump typically need to run each day to generate enough chlorine?
 Reply

A  Answered on 4/11/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Megan C.

The amount of circulation will vary depending on the use, the gallons of the pool, and environmental situations. Typically, single speed pumps operate 6-12 hours, if dual-speed or variable-speed they may operate up to 24-hours per day. The control dial on the salt system ranges from 0-100 or 0-10. The dial is controlling the number of hours it is producing chlorine. If the pump is operating 8-hours per day, with the dial at 5 or 50% the system is generating chlorine, 4-hours during that cycle. The chlorine test will allow you to adjust the output of chlorine accordingly or adjusting other areas of the chemistry as needed. How Long Should I Run My Pool Pump?

Hi, For a 25,000 gallon pool we would suggest the 40,000 gallon system as you can dial it down to a lower chlorine output. This means you will get much longer life out of your salt cell but you always have the ability to really crank up the chlorine production if for some reason you get an algae bloom or have some other demanding conditions that arise.

Hi Al, yes you could use the 40,000 gallon unit even if your pool is only 10,000 gallons. An oversized salt system is a good thing since you will have the ability to really crank up the chlorine production if you need to. The other main benefit is you will get a much longer life out of your salt cell as you will be running the system at a lower percentage output then a larger pool, meaning longer cell life.

I have an inground pool at approximately 38,000 gallons. Salt systems? I do not see a barrel of container for the salt supply Do I just broadcast salt on the pool like Cl shock? If salt is Na and Cl and the cell disassociates them, where does the Sodium go. Did I read right that to start up the system I would have to add 500 lbs, or am I confused?
 Reply

A  Answered on 2/18/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Billy, Thanks for the question! You are correct at startup you would broadcast salt into the pool so no barrel is used. The Na and CL are separated when they go through the salt cell which makes the chlorine but after they go through the cell they are rejoined. For a pool your size you would be looking at roughly 900 lbs. of salt at startup. We put together a good Video Showing How a Salt System Works which you should find helpful.

My pump motor is a vGreen 165 variable speed motor from century. It is connected to a timer, but the timer is on all the time now (basically a switch at this point) and the program on the pump controls the speed and run-time. So while the 240v circuit is hot all the time, the pump only really runs 8 hours a day. If I connect the PL7700 salt chlorine generator to the timer it would be powered 24 hours a day, but would only have water flow 8 hours a day. Will this type of install work?

Hi Heat, Yes this set up would work just fine. You will set your chlorine output on the salt system and then the salt system will only produce chlorine when the flow switch in the salt cell senses that water is flowing through the salt cell.

Thinking about converting to salt system, I've heard the cells only last about 4-5 years before needing replaced? i have a variable speed pump and run my pool 18 hours during the summer, since i run my pump twice as long as most does that mean the cell only last 2 years??
 Reply

A  Answered on 2/1/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Jim, Thanks for the question. When you set up your salt system there is chlorine output selector that you will set, this ranges from 0% - 100%. Normally this can be set around 30% - 50% to maintain your pool. This means that if you ran your pump 18 hrs. per day and if the chlorine output selector was set at 50% then you would running the cell for 9 hrs. per day during the summer. You probably could get by with running the cell at a lower chlorine output level than 50% which means it would prolong the life of the cell. The PL7700 has 7,000 hr. cell life with a 2 year warranty and the PL7707 Crystal Pure Heavy Duty has a 10,000 hr. cell life with a 3 year warranty.

A  Answered on 7/19/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Alex V.

Danny, To view the cell size, you can press the diagnostic button 8 times from the default display. For the PL7700, the cell size should be F15. To change the cell size, while you're on the cell size screen, you would move the switch to super chlorinate then back to auto. You would repeat this process until the unit shows the correct cell size.

The main components of the heat pump are titanium or cupronickel which is very heavy duty and holds up against chlorine and salt.

Hi, This Salt System will need to be hard wired and does NOT use a standard plug-in configuration. Here is a link to the Installation and Operation Manual if you have additional questions.

Hello, I have an old autopilot system in the pool which I'm not sure works. This system costs less then the salt cell alone on that. I'm curious if I can use the existing plumbing and just put this salt cell in? In addition, can you suggest an acid pump with pH sensor to complete the project? Finally, what's the easiest sacrificial plate to use? The electro balls? Thanks
 Reply

A  Answered on 5/5/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi David, You will need to re-plumb the cell, it will not match up with you current set-up. You'll be better off getting a salt system with sense and dispense technology that way it will sync with your chlorine generator. I will recommend the 2" Inline Zinc Anode.

I need a system for 15000 gal pool what do you have.
 Reply

A  Answered on 4/8/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Alan M.

Hello Jerry, We have the Pool Salt System 20,000 Gallons and the Pool Salt System 40,000 Gallons available. The 20,000 Gal system will work for your pool but there is an advantage to having the 40,000 gal system. The smaller the cell size, the harder the cell has to work to maintain chlorine levels in your pool. This reduces the time frame between replacing the cells and, therefore makes the system less cost effective.

I have this system. my instant salinity constantly reads 500 ppm below the actual reading which will not allow my salt system to run. recalibrating does nothing when it always reads too low. how do I get the system to read more accurately.
 Reply

A  Answered on 8/4/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Joe S.

the system will usually give a false reading if the other chemicals in pool are off. Stabilizer should be at 70 and Phosphates should be at 100 or less, make needed adjustments and recalibrate
 Reply


?     Asked on 7/12/2015 by Alan

I purchased this system and installed it because the price of the complete system was cheaper than replacing my cell. This is my second salt system from inyopools in the past 5 years. I installed it last weekend and it was working fine. This weekend I checked and the low salt and inspect cell lights are on. The pool is still very clear, just as it was when I checked and balanced the water before installing this new unit last weekend. The unit reading says 1900, but it tested 3400. What now?
 Reply

A  Answered on 7/21/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Joe S.

Note. The factory default display is 3200 ppm. Recalibrating the system by moving the main switch from “AUTO” to “SUPER CHLORINATE” then back to “AUTO”, which makes the memorized salt level the same as the instant salinity. Also you want to check your stabilizer should be at 70 and Phosphates should be at 100 or less.

 Reply

A  Answered on 6/23/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

These are both fairly good model salt systems. Just keep in mind that if it comes to warranty and availability of parts Hayward has been in the United States for many years while with the Crystal Clear it would be an out of country procedure.

Can the salt cell be mounted vertically? If so how much clearance from the ground to the flow switch or salt cell?
 Reply

A  Answered on 6/12/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

The Crystal Pure Installation Manual shows a vertical option for installing the salt cell. There is no restriction on clearance from the ground. It's more of an issue of getting to it for maintenance.

My pool is an 18'x36', not sure of the exact gallon amount? I believe it is 23,000 gals. Which system would I need?
 Reply

A  Answered on 6/4/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Tim, I would suggest going with the larger 40,000 gallon salt system as it will produce more chlorine meaning the salt system will run for shorter periods of time which allow you to get longer life out of your salt cell.

Looking to replace a Polaris autoclear plus salt cell that is discontinued. Does this system work with filter systems and does this include all necessary components like transformer, wires, and circuit board? If so, my pool is 32,000 gallons. Is this the correct system for my size pool?
 Reply

A  Answered on 5/31/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

This salt system would work with all filter types (i.e. Cartridge, Sand & DE) you would not be able to use your current Polaris AutoClear Clus power supply. This system would be a good replacement for the Polaris AutoClear Plus if you were planning on removing the entire AutoClear Plus and replacing that system with a new Salt System. The Crystal Pure 40,000 Gallon system would be a good system for your sized pool and includes all necessary components for installation like transformer, pcb, etc.. You would need to purchase any plumbing supplies like pvc glue, pvc fittings, etc..

Paul, this system can work with your existing filtration system as long as none of your equipment is made of   stainless steel. Typically 3-5 years you'll need to replace a cell on a salt system.

My chlorinator stopped working. I purchased a new circuit board but it is still not working. I'm looking for a TCELL15 with the power center. Is this what I need. does it wire up on 220 volts?
 Reply

A  Answered on 12/2/2014 by InyoPools Product Specialist Alex V.

Ronnie, This is a complete salt system (cell and power center). It can be wired for either 230v or 115v. The TCELL15/GLXCELL15 is a replacement cell for the Hayward Aquarite. So if you have a Hayward Aquarite and it is time to replace your salt cell then you would go with the TCELL15/GLXCELL15. If you are looking at replacing your entire salt system then the Crystal Pure would be one of several Salt Systems you could go with. You can view the Hayward Salt System here.

My Hayward/Goldline control unit burnt out. Have two local pool dealers in the area and I could not get either one to even look at the old unit.

Written on 7/23/2018 by Guest

Replacement was simple. Shut off power to old unit. Disconnected two wires and the ground wire. Hung the Crystal Pure unit and reattached the power and ground. Turned power back on and was immediately generating chlorine with the salt generator that was in place. Price was great, delivery as promised.

Had 2 Hayward salt cell systems on ~40,000 gallon pool and replaced them with 1 INYO 40,000 salt cell which seems to be working fine. Easy installation. Same size as Hayward cell so no plumbing required and electrical connection was a breeze. Good instructions for my 240v wiring.

Installed a salt water system on my inground pool.

Written on 8/22/2017 by Guest

I converted my inground pool to a salt water system and it was the best investment I have made. After years of paying hundreds of dollars each season I finally said enough is enough and decided to convert the system. I seen this 40,000 gallon system on this site which was more than enough for my pool at a great price. I am pretty handy so I figured I would give it a shot. With the great instructions I received it took me just a few hours to do. I was hesitant at first since I never did anything like this but it came out great and works excellent. I saved hundreds and see much stress and time. I would recommend anyone thinking about doing this to go for it. The difference between salt and clorean is unbelievable. My family loves it. I say just do it.

New house didn't have a Salt Chlorine Generator

Written on 7/24/2017 by Guest

When I put a SCG on our above ground pool when I installed it, I couldn't believe the ease of operation. After moving recently to a house with a traditional in-ground pool that didn't have one, I knew we would need to change that. Before we even closed on the house, I identified that I wanted the Pureline SCG by reading every review and question and doing even more research online on other websites. Just Google That Stuff!
First of all, I can't emphasize enough the planning and preparation. We started by determining how much salt we would have to add and I ordered online from a local hardware store when they were having a sale. We needed 24 - 40# bags. We actually added the salt approximately a week before installation--plenty of time to allow it to dissipate. Then we planned the installation and I assemble the tools & materials I would need: PVC Glue, Reciprocating Saw, tape measure, voltage tester, wire nuts, flexible conduit, wire, outlet box.
One evening when I got home from work the Pureline PL7700 was there and I went about getting it plumbed into my return line. I purchased a corrosion resistant check valve from INYOPOOLS.COM to put before the SCG. After measuring one more time, I turned off the pump at the breaker and cut my 2" PVC line and removed the section of pipe I would need to install the check valve, Pureline PL7700, and flow switch (in that order). After cutting it out, I began the process of gluing in the check valve on one side and the flow switch on the other side. I used Christy's Hot Blue Glue and then I measure one more time to cut my nipples for the screw ends for the SCG and added those. I allowed those to dry for a bit before I hand tightened the SCG cell inline. Turned the pump back on and checked for leaks and was done for the night. Total time, about an hour.
The next morning I cut some blocking to add in between the studs to mount the control box at eye-level above the pump. Then I removed the plate on the pump electrical & tested the voltage (240). At this point I decided to swap the single gang box for a double gang. I then wired a hot, neutral and ground coming out of my power supply for the pump and put those wires inside a new flexible conduit and supplied power to the Pureline control box. I secured the new wiring to the appropriate terminals, plugged in the flow switch and the wire to the salt cell & activated it.
