Looking to reduce the time spent on pool maintenance? Tired of that unsightly chlorine dispenser floating in the pool? The CL220 Offline Chlorinator automatically feeds chlorine to your inground pool, working with your existing pump and filter system. Offline installation is a convenient option when replumbing or renovation is not desired. Chlorinator tubing is attached directly to the existing pipe and the returning water flows through the tubing into the chlorinator and back into the pool. Features a simple dial valve which allows you to adjust the chlorine feed rate. Tough ABS thermoplastic body with a long-lasting Viton seal for the lid. Holds 9 lbs of Trichlor tablets or sticks.

Hayward Chlorinator CL220 Miscellaneous Notes
Note: Chemical feeders should always be installed after a pool heater.
CAUTION: Extreme care must be exercised 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 the 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.

is the top of the Hayward supposed to allow the inner ring to float freely, and not be tight inside the top? We can't get it to the spot, where the top locks in place, at that insert spot? We can't get it to lock.
The o-ring should not be loose in the lid, it should be set in the lid to allow the lid to tighten and seal so it doesn't leak.
how can you tell if the chlorinator is working properly? CL 220. FAC is low and im starting to question the function of the chlorinator.
Hi Andrew, You can confirm based on the amount of chlorine that is released into the pool. If your chlorine level is low and the chlorinator is filled then you ca clean it out by pouring hot water down the chlorinator. If that does not work you will have to replace the control valve.
Your specifications say CL 220 chlorinator weighs 46 lbs.!! My current one probably weighs 5-6 lbs. Why the discrepancy? I don't want a very heavy chlorinator. Thanks.
The 46lbs is a typo. The weight of this chlorinator is approx 5-6 lbs.
having trouble with leaking at top of the chlorinator have to tighten so tight, it is hard to remove model #CL220
New Hayward cl220 only works when set on full (10)! Never had this issue with old unit. will only fill with water set on full. any ideas what is up?
Hi Eric, The dial on the unit could be bad. You can contact Hayward to troubleshoot.
I AM TRYING TO REPLACE A BROMNATOR THAT I DONT THINK IS AVAILABLE ANYMORE WHAT MODEL WOULD YOU RECOMMEND TO REPLACE IT. THE MODEL I HAVE NOW IS C250CF THE RUBBER HOSE CONNECTION IS 3/4 IN..
Hi Linda, The Rainbow HC-3315 Chlorine/Bromine Feeder will work as a replacement, you will have to replumb it.
Does this price include all the fittings required for installation?
Hi, All the fittings required for installation is included with this unit.
Do you sell just a replacement lid for hayward chlorine feeder my lid has cracked?
Hello Pam - Part number CLX200CA is the complete lid for the CL220.
Can a off line chlorinator be installed only in return line ? if not why not ? what can go wrong ?
For any chlorinator it is best to install on the return after all the equipment. If you install before the equipment you will be running heavy amounts of chlorine into pumps and filters which will cause damage
Does the inline chlorinator come with all the hoses and clamps necessary for installation. or must I purchase an additional kit?
The CL220 offline chlorinator does come with all parts needed for installation.
The chlorinator lid is so tight I cannot budge it -- I'm fairly strong but it's really tight. The pool guy said I was to have a tool to remove that lid -- never saw one before so guess not have. He tried to twist it off and said he was afraid he'd break it if he put more pressure on it. Tried to untwist the cap myself, but don't think it moved much --- now chlorine vapors nearly knock me down in the pump house while pump is on! What to do?
Does the CL220 come with the hose, clamp and whatever else is needed to install it?
The CL220 Offline Chlorinator does include tubing and clamps. Please see the owner's manual for a complete parts list.
I have a really hard time taking the cap off my chlorinator. Is there a wrench that I can buy?
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.
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.
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.

This product was cheaper than buying from our pool supply store, had all the pieces necessary to hook it back up, and was exactly like the one we had. I was also impressed with the shipping...it was shipped immediately and was here in 2 days.
