Why does the green light on my ChlorEase blink all the time?
Dale, I didn't find any information regarding your issue. I would recommend calling the manufacturer. You can reach SmartPool at 732-730-9880.
Do I need a saltwater pump or will my Hayward pump work?
Hello Janice- No, there is not special pump for a salt water system. You would use the same pump as you would on a regular chlorine pool.
The Female end of theElectrical cord is missing. Can it be replaced
Unfortunately this is not a replaceable part.
our black box on this runs green an only ran red when low salt now its blinking red not sure what its trying to tell us
Hello Carrie, Unplug the unit and verify that you have power at the socket. Use a voltmeter to determine that you have 115vac output from the socket. If a voltmeter is not available, use a lamp or other appliance to verify that there is enough voltage being supplied to the socket. If there is no supply voltage, either repair the socket or plug the ChlorEase in elsewhere. If the socket is active, call 1-732-730-9880 for Customer Service.
The indicator ( red led) in my smart pool system is blinking all the time when it is on. I cleaned the system as in the instructions. The salt level is O.k. .The chlorine generation is o.k.' just the led is blinking red instead of being green. What could be the problem?
Hello David, normally when red light is on • Calcium build up on cell; refer to cleaning cell • ChlorEase is out of water. Place back in water immediately Or salt level needs to be adjusted. If you would like to talk to a tech 732-730-9880.
Does this unit have a cell that has to be cleaned if you have high limestone concentrations in your water?
Hello, you can click here to read manual, Removing Scale from Elements Unsnap chlorinating cell from housing. Fill a deep container such as the milk carton with ChlorEase Clean or a similar mildly acidic product. Immerse the chlorinating cell only (NOT the housing) and let it set for 45 minutes. Hose off and inspect cell. All scale (cake-like white mineral buildup) should have dissolved. If scale remains, change cleaning solution and repeat process. DO NOT SCRAPE SCALE WITH ANY TYPE OF TOOLS OR BRUSHES AS IT WILL DAMAGE TITANIUM COATING AND VOID WARRANTY!

Hi Ron, You can use this ChlorEase system on your KD above ground pool if you can properly secure it to the pool as shown in the SmartPool CL01 Owner's Manual.

Can this be used with aluminum pool walls?
Hello, It will depend on the pool manufacturer. Please refer to you warranty information to see if the addition of a salt system will void the warranty.
I'm buying your 15' round Matrix resin pool...will this work with that pool?
Hello1 The CL01 ChlorEase Salt Chlorine Generator A/G Pools will work on our Matrix resin pool.
Can this unit be used on a 310 gal spa?
Hi, The ChlorEase Salt Chlorine Generator A/G Pools would not be recommended for a 310 gal spa. We do not have any salt system that can be used in a body of water that size.
i have above ground pool 10000 gallon how much salt do i neeed
Mark, This ChlorEase Salt Chlorine Generator for A/G Pools requires a salt level of 3400-4000ppm. If you're starting from 0ppm which you will not, you'll need 335lbs of salt. Get your water tested first to be sure.
Can this be used with a Coleman above ground pool?
This will work if the outside pool wall is steel and not soft-sided.
How much salt is required to start up a 14500 gallon pool? We have been a chlorine pool up til this year.
Hello Sandy - You would require 465 pounds of salt.
What is the difference between the Smart Pool ChlorEase CL01 and the Ultra CL02 generator besides the price?
Can we use the Smart Pool CL01 in a hot tub?
No, Smart Pool has advised us that the ChlorEase cannot be used in a hot tub.
How can you tell if the Smart Pool ChlorEase is working?
The submerged ChlorEase salt cell will release bubbles when the chlorinator is working.
Can we use this system in our hot tub?
No, the manufacturer advised us that the CL01 cannot be used in a hot tub.
Will the CL01 saltwater swimming pool Chlorinator work on a Omego splash soft side pool?
Unfortunately the CL01 will not work on a soft sided pool, for a soft sided pool we would suggest our solar powered salt chlorinator here >http://www.inyopools.com/Products/00100007061793.htm
Can we use the CL01 on our Intex Pool?
The manufacturer does not recommend the CL01 for Intex pools.
How many gallons will this unit treat?
The CL01 will treat up to 18,000. Pools that are over 18,000 gallons would require 2 units.
Do you still run your pump as normal?
Yes you would still run the pump as normal.
How would I go about changing an above ground pool from chlorine to salt water? Can it be done?
Yes this can be done. You would add the appropriate amount of salt to your pool according to the owner's manual. Once the salt chlorinator is installed the salt water which passes through the salt cell will create chlorine which is sent back to the pool, so you will actually be manufacturing your own chlorine. On most pools you want to maintain a Chlorine level of 3.0 PPM (Parts Per Million) so the first week or so you will be testing the water to try to get the unit dialed into the correct setting to maintain the 3.0 PPM of chlorine. Once you get the salt chlorinator dialed into the proper setting that is it. The nice thing about the salt chlorinators is that the amount of salt needed to maintain the pool is below the taste threshold so will not taste salt in the water of the pool.
(5 out of 5 stars) Love the ChlorEase Generator!

Cannot believe how easy this was to install and to use. We had not used our pool in over 2 years and it really needed a good cleaning. In one week the water was clean and pure. This process would have taken much longer with the traditional chemicals and would have probably cost us a fortune. We purchased the ChlorEase and ALOT of salt which was about $300.00 in initial outlay.. BUT we would sometimes spend that trying to keep the pool clean during the summer. Now the pool is beautiful and the most we will spend is a bag of salt here and there...

Pros: Easy installation
Cons: none yet
I recently choose to change my pool to a saltwater pool. Reviewing all the internet information helped me pick the smartpool CL01 Chlorease unit to help maintain the proper chlorine level in my pool. It was easy to connect to the pool and runs great. The 6A/6V power supply is quiet and the indicator assembly is a quick indicator of the chlorinators proper operation.
(5 out of 5 stars) Excellent product! This is our second; we love how it works!

This is our second ChlorEase generator. It is an excellent product. We have used it and been very pleased at how it maintains our pool's chlorine level without the continual expense and mess of constantly adding more chemicals. Recommend this product to anyone who wants to avoid harsh chemicals and lower pool costs.
