Product Description

Pool Salt System


AquaRite Salt System

No more Jugs of Liquid Chlorine

The Aquarite is the easiest way for you to sanitize your pool, and keep your crystal clear and silky smooth! The Aquarite uses common salt (the same salt used in water conditioners) and converts it into "free" chlorine. The chlorine sanitizes your pool and then reverts back into salt. That's right, the salt is recycled and never wears out. With only a teaspoon of salt per gallon, the Aqua Rite produces enough fresh chlorine (up to .75 lb per day) to keep a 25,000-gallon pool sparkling clean without the chlorine smell. You'll never again have to worry about red irritated eyes, dry itchy skin, bleached bathing suits or green hair!

Does the 40,000 gal option of the Hayward salt system come with adapters to accommodate 1-1/2" lines. I noticed that the specifications indicate that the cell is 2".

A     Answered on 8/24/2016 by Scott W.

It does not come with adapters

My pool is about 18K gal in N Texas. Am I better off with the 25K system or is it better to move up to the 40K gal system to avoid over taxing the equipment? Is it worth getting the pro system primarily for the benefit of maintaining the ph with CO2? How do the aquarite and Pentair Intellichlor compare? Is one better than the other?

A     Answered on 2/19/2016 by Lennox H.

Hi, It would be better to go with the 40K system verses the 25K, the cell will last longer. It would also be worth it to get the Aqua-Rite Pro to keep the pH and Chlorine levels maintained. Cost wise the Hayward Pro System would be better, Pentair does not have an all inclusive set up like Hayward does.

?     Asked on 9/13/2015 by Clayton Korver

What are the port sizes for the 25k system? I'm concerned about increased head pressure.

A     Answered on 9/15/2015 by Robert M.

Hello Clayton - The ports on the salt cell are 2".

?     Asked on 6/9/2015 by

I've had a salt water pool for about 5 years now and my wife and I both agree that the first year or two we could taste the salt and our skin always felt real smooth almost slimy when we got out. Now we don't taste any salt and our skin doesn't feel as good, has the cell gone bad?? it's still producing chlorine as far as I can tell...

A     Answered on 6/9/2015 by Brian M.

The feel of the water is based on the level of salt , not the production of chlorine. I would suggest getting the levels checked and return the water to the higher end of "ok" for the system to operate.  This way, it will have more room to fall before needing more salt.

Is the flow switch direction important?

A     Answered on 10/8/2013 by Patrick P.

Yes. The flow switch must be mounted so the arrows on the switch it’s self go in the direction of flow. Also, the flow switch requires 12 inches of straight pipe before the water enters the part to ensure there is no turbulence inside the switch compartment causing the switch to display “no flow” in error. Also, the switch needs to see at least 11GPM of flow to properly close the switch.

Can I use rock salt?

A     Answered on 10/8/2013 by Patrick P.

Rock salt is not an option. Rock salt has entirely too many impurities and could cause some issues with the pool water, or pool surfaces.

A     Answered on 10/8/2013 by Patrick P.

The unit will run in 2 separate polarities and continually switch sides as long as the pump continues to run. The desired output percentage dial will tell the chlorinator how long to generate in each polarity, SUPER CHLORINATE simply tells the unit to ignore the dial setting for 24 hours and generate chlorine at 100% of its capability.

Will the Aqua Rite work on a portable spa?

A     Answered on 10/8/2013 by Patrick P.

The Aqua Rite chlorinator is specifically designed for use with in-ground pools, and will not work with portable spas or hot tubs due to its high output.

?     Asked on 10/8/2013 by Guest

Will the water taste salty?

A     Answered on 10/8/2013 by Patrick P.

Generally you should not be able to taste any salt in the pool because the level of salt in the water is so low, however some people with sensitive palates might detect a small amount of salt.

How much salt will I need when I start up my salt system?

A     Answered on 2/28/2013 by Patrick P.

The exact amount of salt needed will depend on the size of the pool and the manufacturer of the salt system. On average, you will need 200-400 pounds of salt for an in ground swimming pool.

I'm getting ready to start up my salt water pool. What chemicals do I need?

A     Answered on 5/22/2012 by Patrick P.

If you are staring up the pool, you will want to top off your pool water level before you add any chemicals. To keep a salt water pool chlorinated, the salt range should be about 3200-3500ppm (you can find it in the owners manual). You should not have to add a significant amount of salt to your pool each year unless the pool has lost a significant amount of water due to draining or leakage. When you open your salt water pool, you will want to check the stabilizer, total chlorine, free chlorine, pH, phosphates, salt and alkalinity. The main chemical you will want to pay attention to is the conditioner/stabilizer. The conditioner is sunscreen for the chlorine your system will be making. Simply put, no conditioner = no chlorine. Two additional products that I would recommend are Salt Water Magic & PHOSFREE

Is the salt included with the salt chlorine generator?

A     Answered on 2/29/2012 by Patrick P.

No, salt is not included.  You would purchase the salt locally and the quantity will depend upon the number of gallons of water in your pool.  Use a salt that is at least 99.8% pure NaCl. The preferred salt is evaporated, granulated, food quality, and NON-iodized.  Avoid using salt with anti-caking agents like sodium ferrocyanide, also known as yellow YPS (prussiate of soda). These cause some discoloration of fittings and pool surface finishes. DO NOT use calcium chloride.

?     Asked on 2/1/2012 by Guest

I have a pool that is about 10,000 gallons but I am thinking of buying a salt chlorine system for pools up to 20,000 gallons. Would the larger unit be a problem?

A     Answered on 2/1/2012 by Patrick P.

It is not a problem to oversize a salt system.  It would take the larger unit less time to produce the necessary chlorine so it is actually more efficient.  When the pool volume is very close to the capacity of the salt chlorine generator (for example, the pool is 18,000 gallons and the generator is rated at a maximum of 20,000 gallons), we would recommend going up to the next size generator.

Pros: Reliability

Cons: Upfront cost

After using and replacing pool contractor installed unit twice within three years it was time to upgrade. The Aqua Rite unit performs perfectly and provdes a level of reliability not found in knock off or other less reliable branded systems.
