Product Description

PureLine Crystal Pure Salt Chlorine Generator PL7701

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:

  • Durable design
  • Max. Chlorine Production Per Day = 1.06 Lbs.
  • Economical to use
  • Simple operation & maintenance
  • Large chlorine capacity
  • Low energy consumption
  • 2 Year warranty
  • Digital display and LED indicators
  • Self-cleaning
  • Adjustable chlorine output
  • Super chlorination mode
  • Water flow detector
  • Low salt and overload indicators
  • High & low temperature protection (working temperature from 50F to140F)

Crystal Pure Optional Add-On Accessory Package

The Crystal Pure Optional Add-On Accessory Package includes several convenient tools for your swimming pool salt system. The package includes a Salt Cell Cleaning Stand, Salt Test Strips, and a Dummy Cell. The Cleaning Stand simplifies cell cleaning and eliminates having to soak the cell in a bucket of muriatic acid solution. Salt Test Strips are used to accurately measure the salt level in your pool. The dummy cell is used during cell cleaning, winter, and spring startup.

Optional Add-On Accessories

Salt Cell Cleaning Stand

This cleaning stand simplifies cell cleaning and eliminates having to soak the 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.

Salt Test Strips

Salt Test Strips are used to accurately measure the salt level in your pool. The Crystal Pure Salt System does measure and give salt readout levels on the power supply however it is nice to have salt test strips upon startup of your Salt System. During startup up you will use your test strips to make sure that you add the correct amount of salt to your pool, it is also good to be able to compare the salt readings on the power supply to those of the salt test strips to make sure the system is giving accurate salt readings. 

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.

Yes, the flow switch is required for the CrystalPure; the control will not turn on the cell unless it can read there is adequate flow.

I have a Compupool system and I have had trouble with the it and I have wrote many emails to the company but had no replies and I am thinking to changing to yourselves. The Compupool system is fitted between the filter and the heat exchanger, there is no room in the pipe work to fit it after the heat exchanger would your system be OK if fitted in the same place as the Compupool system. Regards Ken.

 Reply

A  Answered on 4/15/2019 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Ken, Compupool has gone out of business so that is probably the reason for no replies. Our PureLine Crystal Pure System can go between the filter and heat exchanger. However, with any salt system, this is not ideal since you will be sending a high concentration of Chlorine to the heat exchanger which could cause the heat exchanger to corrode prematurely.

 Reply

A  Answered on 1/15/2019 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Chris. The cell total operating hours and warranty length are the differences between the LT, Standard, and Heavy Duty systems. The LT = 5,000 hours / 1 Year, Standard = 7,000 / 2 Year and Heavy Duty = 10,000 hours / 3 Year. The 20,000 systems will be too small for your size pool. I would recommend the 40,000 systems.

 Reply

A  Answered on 5/26/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Thomas, Yes this would be the salt system you would use and it would work great for the pool you described. You will need to use hard plumbing to hook up to the salt cell. You would just need to purchase salt and that would be it, minus any plumbing supplies like glue. Also one other item would be a 3 prong plug if you want to plug the power supply directly into a wall outlet.

Hi Gary, For sized pool I would suggest the PL7700 40,000 Gallon Crystal Pure Salt System. The larger PL7700 will give you much longer life on your salt cell before needing to be replaced and it will also really allow you to crank up the chlorine production if you ever get into any demanding conditions with your pool.

Why is Pool Salt System better than Chlorine System?
 Reply

A  Answered on 5/7/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

Ultimately it does depend on pool owner preference but the reasons why some prefer salt systems over chlorine is fewer hands-on maintenance since the system generates chlorine on its own. Also if you leave home for an extended period of time beings days to weeks the system if functioning well will keep the pool chlorinated and lastly many pool owners prefer the feel of salt water to their skin.

Hi Lynn, You would require the PL7703 60,000 Gallon Pool Salt System which is $699 you would then need about $100 in salt for startup. So you are looking at roughly $800 if you did the installation yourself.

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 Louis, Yes this would be a great replacement for your Auto Pilot DIG-220. If your pocketbook can afford it then the PL7700 40,000 Gallon System would be even better as you can really crank that system up to produce more chlorine if need be, also you will get much longer life out of the 40,000 gallon cell as you would be running that system at a much lower % output.

So for 495 this is a complete system, no additional parts needed? Second question, my current timer doesn't move but works if I turn it manually to "on" and later to "off" to run the pump. Have anything that might fix this issue as well?
 Reply

A  Answered on 4/16/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Tim, Yes for the $499 it is the complete system less any salt you need to purchase. The most common timer is the yellow dial Intermatic Timer and if you have a 230V Timer then you would need this Intermatic 230V Pool Timer Mechanism and if you are wired 115V then you would need this Intermatic 115V Pool Timer Mechanism. We also put together a Guide on How to Replace an Intermatic 230V Timer Mechanism which you may find helpful.

Is this unit complete or are there other parts required such as the cable pictured? Where can the salt be purchased and how much would it take for 10k gallons? Thank you
 Reply

A  Answered on 4/16/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

The system is complete, you may have a few installation components based on how you decide to install the system. If you hard wire the system then you will have the cost of the raw wire which is too much. If you wire a 3 prong 115V plug to the system so that you can plug directly into a standard 115V wall outlet then you will need this 115V 3 Prong Plug and Cord you will remove the spade connectors on this cord to expose the raw wire. The cable from the salt cell to power center is included. For your size pool, you will need 300 lbs. of salt at start up. Pool salt comes in 40 Lbs. bags and is about $10 per bag so you would be looking at 8 bags of salt or $80 in salt. Salt does not evaporate out of the water so you typically just have the expense of the salt at startup.

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.

 Reply

A  Answered on 3/25/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Joe S.

Hi Kenneth, for the install of the cell and the flow switch you would need to have at least a 12" (25cm) straight pipe run before (upstream) the flow switch. If the switch is plumbed after the cell, the cell can by counted as the 12" (25cm) of straight pipe and at least 16" for the cell to be installed.

Does the system have a way to use a timer for various filtration cycles?
 Reply

A  Answered on 3/24/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi James, This system would tie into your standard pool timer and works as follows. The crystal pure comes with a flow switch so the salt system is only producing chlorine when water is passing through the flow switch (i.e. pump is on). You then set the output of chlorine on the power supply so if you set the output to 50% then the Crystal Pure will be producing chlorine for 50% of the time that the pump is turned on (i.e. 30 minutes for every hour the pump is on). I hope this helps.

Hi Laz, The chlorine production is measured in pounds (lbs.) of chlorine per day. And here are those ratings for each unit PL7701 (20,000 gallon unit) = 1.06 lbs. chlorine per day, PL7700 (40,000 gallon unit) = 2.1 lbs. chlorine per day and PL7703 (60,000 gallon unit)  = 3.18 lbs. chlorine per day.

Our pool capacity is 27,287 gallons. What size salt system should we get since we fall between 20,000 and 40,000 sizes?
 Reply

A  Answered on 2/24/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Jill, Our suggestion would be to go with the PL7700 40,000 gallon salt system as it would allow you to dial the salt cell down to a lower level % to maintain your pool, meaning you will get a much longer life out of our salt cell. Also, you have the ability to dial the system to a higher chlorine output then the PL7701 meaning that if you ever got a bad algae bloom then you could really dial up the system to output a lot of chlorine.

can you install this chlorinator vertically?
 Reply

A  Answered on 11/16/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Kevin G.

Hello Willy,Thank you for contacting Inyo Pools. The chlorinator can be installed either horizontally or vertically, it doesn't affect the salt system. However, I would check to make sure that your pump is strong enough to operate the chlorinator in the vertical position. While the chlorinator can be vertical, the flow switch must always be installed horizontally.

 Reply

A  Answered on 6/18/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Hank, Thanks for the questions! My suggestion would be the 40,000 gallon unit over the 20,000 gallon unit as the 40,000 gallon unit has the ability to produce double the amount of chlorine. On 100% output the 40,000 gallon will produce 2.1 lbs. of chlorine vs. the 20,000 Gallon producing 1.05 lbs. The cell normally lasts 3-5 years and you will need salt for start up and you will need to keep your other chemicals like pH, CYA and alkalinity balanced. I have found the larger unit to be nice since you have the ability to really crank up the chlorine if needed but for the vast majority of the time you will be on a much lower setting then the 20K resulting in much longer cell life.

If you have a standard heat exchanger in your Hayward heater the salt will corrode the heat exchanger making it leak, that is the most common thing that happens. You would want a heater with a cupro-nickel heat exchanger because it is made for saltwater pools and will not corrode.

Hello Justin- The cell voltage would vary, depending on the setting that it is on. When you have your unit set to 50% it will operate 50% of the time that the unit is on, if it is set to 100% it would operate 100% of the time. If it is fluctuation while on full power that may be something to keep an eye on.

Hi Wendel, You could use the Crystal Pure PL7701 on a 21,000 gallon pool, but my suggestion would be to go up to the PL7100 40,000 Gallon Crystal Pure Salt System. By going with the larger system you will be generating more chlorine meaning that you can run the system for shorter periods of time resulting in longer time between needing to replace your salt cell. Also if for whatever reason you get an algae bloom the larger system can be dialed up to create a larger amount of chlorine.

Board on previous salt system went kaput

Written on 5/11/2018 by Guest

After checking the price from a local store for a replacement board for my Hayward salt system, I found this replacement system on InyoPools. Considering the entire system, from the entire control box to the salt cell, was just a little more than replacing the two boards in my Hayward, this was a no-brainer. The salt cell replacement itself was a simple swap--remove the two plastic nuts holding it in place and swap the new one in. I cut the breaker to the pump timer and then removed the old control unit from the wall where it was mounted. The new control unit itself was a little tougher to install, but only because my old control unit had two screws holding it in place on the wall and I would have had to get a masonry bit to mount the new one more securely--as it is, it's only held in place by the single screw at the top. (But it's nevertheless pretty secure.) I also needed to make use of the existing electrical conduit from my pump timer, so I had to work the new power cord through it. Once that was done, the electrical connection inside the pump timer was a piece. I turned the breaker back on and fired it up. Everything worked out of the box. I can't imagine that installing one of these as a new install (rather than replacement) would be much tougher. You'd need a saw to cut your PVC and some appropriate PVC glue, a masonry bit and masonry screws (if mounting to brick), and knowledge of where to connect the hot, ground, and neutral for the control unit to your pump timer (probably the trickiest part). But this was worth every penny and then some.

Were these instructions helpful?
