Product Description

The CL200 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.  A simple dial valve allows you to easily control the amount of chlorine being dispensed.  No more floating chlorine dispensers in the pool or manually adding chlorine.  The CL200 sanitizes your pool automatically, holding 9 lbs of Trichlor tablets or sticks.  Hayward chlorinators are made from sturdy ABS thermoplastic and feature a durable Viton seal for the lid.


Features:

  • Holds 9 lbs of chlorine
  • Can be used with small or large slow-dissolve chlorine tablets or sticks
  • Dial control valve lets you adjust the rate of feed with 9 settings from "off" to "full"

  • Unique finger-release catch provides extra security

Product FAQs

8/15/2012

Q:Does the Hayward CL200 need an external check valve?

A:Generally, yes, It is a good practice to keep the water with high concentrations of chlorine from backing up into your heater or filter.

8/6/2012

Q:I have a really hard time taking the cap off my chlorinator. Is there a wrench that I can buy?

A:If you are having difficulty removing the lid on your Hayward CL200 or CL220, you can the Dura Grip Lid Wrench: http://www.inyopools.com/Products/07501352020738.htm#parts It fits securely on the lid, making removal a breeze.  

1/30/2012

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.)

11/21/2007

Q:How do I know if one chlorinator is enough for my pool?

A: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.

4/2/2007

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 http://www.inyopools.com/valves_flo_check.aspx

3/10/2007

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 http://www.inyopools.com/chlorinators_floating.aspx

7/13/2006

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.

6/20/2006

Q:Does this model work with 1 1/2" PVC?

A:Yes this is made for 1 1/2" PVC pipe.

   (5 out of 5 Stars) Great Chlorinator

Reviewed By: from Enterprise, AL ()

Pros: Makes keeping the chlorine level in your pool easy and trouble free.

Cons: You must be careful when putting tablets in the chlorinator as the chlorine smell is very strong.

This CL200 Hayward chlorinator was a replacement for my 12 year old Chlorinator, which I cracked by accident. The new chlorinator works very well and is a duplicate of the old one, but shinier. Works well, lasts a long time. Get the union kit to ease installation now and in the future.
