Product FAQs


Q:What union connectors are needed for the Hayward Chlorinator model # CL100?

A:The union connectors kit need for Hayward Chlorinator model # CL100, is part # SP1500UNPAK2.


Q:After two normal seasons of operating fine, all of a sudden the inside of my Hayward 300 chlorinator is turning black. What could be the cause of this? And what could I do to fix this?

A:If the water feels slightly greasy to the touch, it could mean that the chlorinator has turned black due to an excess of iron and manganese in the water. I would suggest checking the composition of your water at your local pool store or supply company. They should be able to tell you whether or not the pH and total alkalinity are in balance with one another.


Q:Can you use bromine tablets in the Hayward CL100 Inline Chlorinator?

A:Yes, you can use bromine tablets in the Hayward CL100.


Q:What is the difference between an inline and offline chlorinator?

A: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.)


Q:How do I determine if the CL100 is the proper size chlorinator for my pool?

A:The Hayward CL100 or CL110 chlorinator will provide enough chlorine for up to 18,000 gallons of water.  If the volume of your pool is greater than this, you would need the CL200 or CL220 model which is for pools up to 40,000 gallons.  For pools above 40,000 gallons, you would use multiple chlorinators.  For example, if you have 60,000 gallons then you would use two CL200 or CL220 chlorinators.


Q:Does the in-line chlorinator come with a check valve, or must it be purchased separately?

A:No this does not come with the check valve. We would highly reccommend purchasing one of the check valves listed on this page


Q: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?

A: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


Q:Can I use granular, or must I use 3" tablets or stick?

A:We recommend using tablets or sticks, and not to use granular with chlorinators.
