I use a Raypak PS165VSP, will this unit control the variable speed pump? Also, I run the pump at low speed during the day, what is the minimum required flow for the Hayward salt cells to produce chlorine?

A     Answered on 9/1/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Jonas. This Aqua Plus System is unable to control a variable speed pump. It also needs a flow rate of 15 GPM to activate the flow switch so that chlorine can be generated.

Does this come with the relays and breakers for the subpanel? And does it include the actuators?

A     Answered on 7/24/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Ryan. This controller comes with 4 relays but no breaker or actuators.

I have an Aqua-Plus, panel saying "no salt cell power" is there a fix for this?

A     Answered on 5/28/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Joe S.

You want to ensure the salt cell was clean. If and after it is cleaned the unit still reads no cell power. You would want to take it to a store to have the cell tested.

does it also adjust the PH automatically?

A     Answered on 11/30/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Joe S.

Hello, if you want to control the PH for your system you will need the PLPS8PACK with AQLCHEM and AQLCHEM3120

I need to replace an aquarite scg and intermatic panel but the t-cell works. Can I get this without the t-cell?

A     Answered on 11/16/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi Chris, Unfortunately the AquaPLus  Controller is not available without the cell.

Can I control the system remotely from a computer, phone or tablet?

A     Answered on 8/10/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Robert M.

Hello Fonz - Yes you can control the AquaPlus from a computer, phone or tablet. The AquaPlus would require the addition of the Aqua Connect Home Network and the Aqua Logic Base Receiver.

What is the gray sencor in the return to pool

A     Answered on 1/12/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Robert M.

The sensor on the return line would be the flow sensor. The flow sensor will shut the salt system down if the flow is too low.

Is the salt included with the salt chlorine generator?

A     Answered on 2/29/2012 by InyoPools Product Specialist 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.

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 InyoPools Product Specialist 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.
