Model # CL2002S
Warranty 1 Year
The CL2002S Inline Chlorinator is designed to automatically feed chlorine to your inground pool by working with your existing pump and filter system. Returning water to the pool flows through the chlorinator which is plumbed inline after the filter.
Pipe Size: 2 in.
Dimensions: (W) 9 in. x (H) 14-3/4 in.
Weight: 5 lbs.
Flow Ratings: (GPM = Gallons Per Minute)
CL100 - Used with pumps with flow rating of 30-50 GPM
CL200 - Used with pumps with flow rating of 50-80 GPM
CL2002S - Used with pumps with flow rating of 50-90 GPM
CL110 - Used with pumps with flow rating of 30-50 GPM
CL220 - Used with pumps with flow rating of 50-90 GPM
The CL2002S comes with socket connectors, not unions. The manufacturer does not make unions for the 2" chlorinator. It can be plumbed using the SP14982S union; this would connect to the 2" pipe, not the chlorinator itself.
Chemical feeders should always be installed after a pool heater.
CAUTION: Extreme care must be excerised when adding chemicals to your pool. Concentrated chemicals may react violently if they mix in the chemical feeder, causing a fire or explosion, which may result in PROPERTY DAMAGE, PERSONAL INJURY or DEATH.
CAUTION: Never use any petroleum based lubricants on cover O-Ring. Regular lubrication is necessary to allow for easy cover removal. Use non-petroleum based lubricants such as Jack's No. 327 lube or Ivory bar soap.

I installed a Cl 200 and it sounds like a ocean running through it -My son has the same unit and it is very quiet what can i do to make this quiet
John, You may have air in your lines. The air will typically work its way out after a few days.
May come across as a stupid question and if so forgive me. If the chlorinator is set to "Full" setting with one tablet can I increase my chlorine level with 2 or more tablets? In other words, should I load the chlorinator with 9 tablets then adjust the chlorine level via the flow control? What do recommend?
Hi Nicholas, Yes it would be no problem to fill the chlorinator with 9 tablets and then use the control valve for your output
When adding unions to the CL2002S is there a reason to use the SP14982S union, over a standard schedule 40 PVC union?
Standard union connectors will work just fine just as long as the threads fit.
What is the length of the chlorinator tubing I need for the pool
Hello- This is an inline chlorinator so you will not need tubing because it is installed directly into the plumbing. If you click here, you can see the installation recommendation on page 4.
WE HAVE THE HAYWARD CL2002S CHLORINE FEEDER AND AFTER IT IS TURNED BACK PAST 1/2 WAY SETTING NO CHLORINE IS BEING FEED TO THE POOL. WHAT COULD BE THE PROBLEM? WE EITHER GET TO MUCH CHLORINE OR NONE.
Hi, The problem could be with the control valve, it might need to be replaced.
Can this be used for Bromine tabs also?
Joe, This can no be used for Bromine. You will need a brominator which you can view here: http://www.inyopools.com/Products/02200001004586.htm
I have a CL2002S chlorinator. It has no adjustment. It is either off or in maximum chlorination with no in between. My pool was sky high in chlorine. I now have been watching chlorine levels and either turn it off or on for adjustment. What can be done to fix this adjustment problem?
Hi Bob, You will need to replace the Control Knob Assembly w/O-ring (CLX200PA).
I AM GOING TO BUY A HAYWARD CHLORINATOR. MY RETURN LINE FROM THE FILTER TO THE POOL IS 2 IN OD. SHOULD I GET THE CL200 OR THE CL2002S. I SEE WHERE THE CL200 HAS 1.5 INCHES & THE CL2002S HAS 2 INCHES
Hi Gerald, If your pipe measures 2" OD, you will need the CL200 Chlorinator and the Union Connectors 1 1/2" Skt X 2" Slip WG (SP1500UNPAK2C).
Yesterday I was having trouble securing the screw-top lid to my in-line chlorinator. It would not lock-in place and was leaking? It was threaded properly.
Hi Randy, You may need to replace the Lid O-ring, (viton) (CLX200K). Overtime is can become stretched and when that happens will prevent lid from closing properly.
Can the side socket connectors be removed to adjust the fit pipe connector installed glued and to short on one side?
Ron, If the pipe is too short, you can try cutting the pipe and using an additional piece of pvc and pvc coupler to extend the length.
I have a Hayward inline chlorinator now and for approx 10 years. For the past 4-5 years we have difficulty unscrewing the top off to add the chlorine and to the point i can no longer add the chlorine myself. I need to ask someone else to do it and it is difficult for them as well. We would like to replace the chlorinator but afraid to get this same model with a screw top as we may have the same difficulty. Does Hayward sell a latch-on type lid rather than a screw-on type?
Unfortunately Hayward has not changed the design. The best way to prevent this from recurring is to keep the lid o-ring lubricated and to use the lid wrench - Part number 0211-0 or click on this link - http://www.inyopools.com/Products/07501352020738.htm#parts
I am thinking of purchasing a chlorinator, I use flex hoses right now. Will I have to change to solid piping?
You can use flex pvc or hose to plumb in the chlorinator. Keep in mind that both will deteriorate at a faster pace vs hard pvc and will need to be replaced eventually.
Does the CL2002S chlorine feeder come with unions?
Per the manufacturer, the CL2002S chlorinator comes with socket connectors, not unions. They do not make unions for the 2" model. They advised that you can plumb it using 2" unions but these would attach to the pipe, not the CL2002S itself. They suggested their SP14982S union.
What is the difference between an inline and offline chlorinator?
An inline chlorinator would be plumbed directly inline with the plumbing. For an existing pool, this would mean a section of pipe would need to be cut out to install the chlorinator. An offline chlorinator attaches to existing plumbing by chlorinator tubing (holes would be drilled into existing pipe to attach the tubing.)
How do I know if one chlorinator is enough for my pool?
The Hayward CL200 or CL220 chlorinator will provide enough chlorine for up to 40,000 gallons of water. You would need to calculate the volume of your pool to determine how many chlorinators you would need. For example, if you have 60,000 gallons then you would use two CL200 or CL220 chlorinators.
Does the in-line chlorinator come with a check valve, or must it be purchased separately?
No this does not come with the check valve. We would highly reccommend purchasing one of the check valves listed on this page http://www.inyopools.com/valves_flo_check.aspx
Is there a feedback mechanism that tells the unit the chlorine balance in the pool? Is this a way for me to automate addition of clorine to keep it always at the correct level? Or, just another place to put the tab aside from the the drain basket?
There is a dial on this unit which has a setting from 1-10 If you set the dial on 1 it will be letting the least amount of chlorine to the pool and if you have it set at 10 this would send the most amount of chlorine to the pool. So you can automate the feed of chlorine to the pool but you will still need to manually test your water. We do not recommend placing tablets in the skimmer basket because this high concentration of chlorine goes directly back to your pump and can cause corrosion to your pool equipment. If you do not go with the automatic chlorinator we would recommend at least going with one of our floating chlorinators so you do not damage your equipment you may view our floating chlorinators here http://www.inyopools.com/chlorinators_floating.aspx
Can I use granular, or must I use 3" tablets or stick?
We recommend using tablets or sticks, and not to use granular with chlorinators.
(5 out of 5 stars) Great product....
Reviewed By: Javier from Arkansas ()
Pros: Quality build, easy to use.
Cons: None so far.
I've been using it for 2-3 weeks now. Took a little bit to get the level I needed but it's working great now. Simple to install, simple to use. Has a large tablet reservoir.
(5 out of 5 stars) Reliable chlorinator
Reviewed By: Shadetree from GERMANTOWN, MD ()
Pros: Chlorinates well and is easy to add new tablets
Cons: Instructions should warn about tightening couplings, if provided
The unit came with 2" couplers on both the inlet and outlet ports, as ordered. Unfortunately, one of the couplers had not been fully tightened at the factory and it leaked at the threaded connection after installation. There was no warning in the installation instructions to tighten the couplings before installation (they cannot be tightened after being cemented to pool plumbing). Hayward replaced the unit at no charge and I made sure the new one had tight couplings before installation. The replacement unit has no leaks and works well.

This model has 1.5 to 2.0 inch adapters that are solvent welded in place and cannot be removed. The adapters use the same threads that are for the unions, so the union feature is no longer usable. Recommend the unions with std unit, and make size change in your piping.
