By Hayward Pool Products




Product Description

Salt & Swim 3CProduct Description

Salt & Swim 3C is Hayward’s entry level, DIY-friendly salt chlorinator that delivers the 3Cs of salt chlorination - Comfort, Convenience, and Cost Savings you'll love. 

You'll get the unimaginable Comfort of silky soft water, that won't turn eyes red. It’s a more natural approach to chlorination which also eliminates the harsh chlorine odor associated with factory-produced chlorine.


Convenience means no more lugging heavy buckets and jugs of harsh chlorine. With salt chlorination, sanitizing pools happens automatically by converting ordinary salt into 100% pure chlorine. Now that's Convenient.


Salt & Swim 3C also provides a cost savings of 50% or more over traditional chlorine. Each cell produces a ton of chlorine, but at more than half the cost of other forms of chlorine.

SaltChlorinator Features:

  • Salt Chlorinator System Kit complete with Salt Cell
  • Suitable for in ground pools up to 30,000 gallons
  • LED control panel
  • Union Connections: 2” plumbing (glued)
  • Super chlorination feature
  • Plugs into 120V GFCI outlet
  • Includes: 2 inch slip-fit unions 

A single Salt & Swim 3C Cell produces the equivalent of:

  • 200 lbs off 100% pure available chlorine
  • 225 lbs Trichlor
  • 208 gallons of liquid chlorine weighs 1 ton

The Salt & Swim is an automatic chlorine generation system for pool sanitization. It is designed for inground swimming pools up to 30,000 gallons only. The Salt & Swim is NOT to be used with above ground pools or with inground pools greater than 30,000 gallons.

Hello, Is there a "Dummy Cell" that works with the Hayward SALTSWIM-PRO? Thanks, Patrick, Dagsboro, DE

A     Answered on 10/4/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Joe S.

Good afternoon, there is not a Dummy Cell that would work for this unit.

What is the warranty?

A     Answered on 8/31/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Tom. The Control Unit is backed by a 3 Year limited warranty and the cell a 1 Year limited warranty.

What is the average lifespan of the Cell with this unit. I've seen on others where it is listed as 5000 hours or such.

A     Answered on 8/31/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Jason. This cell life is rated for 12-18 months.

The instructions say SAS cell sold separately. Is that true that it is not included?

A     Answered on 7/4/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Richard. The Cell is included with this Hayward Salt & Swim Chlorine Generator Complete System - SALTSWIM-PRO

How much space does the salt cell requires? I already have the dimension of the check valve I plan to buy.

A     Answered on 5/15/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Andy. You need 11.5" for the installation.

?     Asked on 4/26/2018 by Logan

Does this need to be wired directly into the breaker box, or does it just plug in? Also, does it adjust for pH as well or is another system needed for that? Thanks

A     Answered on 4/26/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Joe S.

The Control Box must be mounted a minimum of 10 ft. (4 meters) horizontal distance (or more, if local codes require) from the pool, within 3ft from a GFCI outlet, and within 15ft from where the Cell is installed. This unit does not control or monitor PH. You would need Aqua Rite Pro Power Supply & Salt Cell (40,000 Gallons) (AQR15PRO) with  Chemistry Kit 1, pH and ORP Sense, ORP Dispense - AQLCHEM and Chemistry Kit 2, CO2 pH Dispense - AQLCHEM2.

Does it come with a check valve so the water does not flow back to the heater?

A     Answered on 4/18/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Joe S.

This unit does not come with a check valve. That would be something that would need to be purchased separately. Check Valves

How easy is this to install?

A     Answered on 11/27/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Julie. This system is easy to install compared to the others, see the Salt & Swim Owners Manual and the Salt & Swim Installation Quick Start Guide for installation instructions.

I have a newly installed 28' round above ground Doughboy that I bought used. I have the original Doughboy pump and sand filter system and want to use a salt system instead of chlorine. It's about 18,000 gals. What salt system would you recommend? Can I use the Hayward system you have on sale ? Thanks

A     Answered on 8/2/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Alex V.

Tom, Unfortunately, this system can not be used on above ground pools. I would recommend the Hayward Aquatrol system. Please keep in mind that adding a salt system to your pool will corrode any metal/steel components over time.

Have 16x32 in-ground with Hayward pump and sand filter will this unit work for me

A     Answered on 6/23/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Mike. This system will work with a 16'x32' in-ground pool as long as it does not exceed 30,000 gallons of water.

?     Asked on 5/30/2017 by

I have an inground pool with vinyl liner and a Hayward pump and filter system that uses de. Can I use the existing pump and filter system and convert it to a salt system? Do you still use the de? Also, what model would I need for a 21,000 gal pool? Thank you for your help.

A     Answered on 5/31/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

Yes, you can add a salt system to your system and yes, you still would use D.E. powder. These systems are just add ons to your current system. I would recommend the AQR15.

I am not particularly happy with my Jandy Aquapure system. Does anyone make a system that is compatible with their control system?

A     Answered on 5/19/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Bill. You can use any chlorine generator if you have a Jandy Pool Automation controller. The controller will only be able to send power to the chlorine generator telling it when to turn on/off.

In the description, it says cell not included, but then, right under that it says that the cell IS included. So, is it or not? Thank you!

A     Answered on 3/30/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Scott W.

I apologize, that is not worded very good. It comes with the cell, I think what they wanted to say there is that there is a replacement cell sold separately, but the complete system comes with the cell. That system will need to be special ordered from Hayward though, we do not have it in stock.
