CPSC Series - Self Cleaning
ADVANCED SALT WATER CHLORINATION SYSTEM The CPSC Series is a high-performance salt water chlorination system that lets you enjoy perfectly clear pool water without the use of harsh chemicals. It is a safe, clean, easy alternative to dosing your pool with dangerous and expensive chemicals.How does it work?
Salt is added to the pool water, 0.35% - 0.4% salt content. This slightly salinated water then passes through the electrolytic cell and this produces chlorine gas, which prevents algae and purifies the pool or spa.Why Saltwater Chlorination?

Does the Compupool CPSC48 have a timer?
Yes, the CPSC48 has an internal timer, but it will only turn itself on/off. It will not control your pump.
What is the difference between the 240v and 120v installation for the CompuPool salt system?
The CompuPool is preset at the factory for 240v. Please refer to pages 10 and 11 of the owner' manual for instructions on how to change the voltage to 120.
Is the salt included with the salt chlorine generator?
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?
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.
Is the Contol Unit supposed to run hot?
According to the manufacturer, it is common for the Control Unit to be hot during operation. Because of the transformer inside, it can reach temperatures of 180 degrees in the summer.
Can I attach the cell to 2" piping?
Yes - The 2" piping will slip over and glue to the outside of the barrow.
Are the replacement cells interchangeable? Can I upgrade my CompuPool Salt Chlorine Generator by exchanging a CPSC24 electrode cell for a CPSC16?
No - The Control Units are matched to the Electrode Cells. The larger Electrode Cells have more plates and require more amperage from the Control Unit.
What happens to all my settings in the Control Unit when the power to the Control Unit is shut off with the pump?
The Control Unit has a battery powered backup feature designed for long term memory. It can save your settings for over 6 months.
Do you sell a CompuPool Salt Chlorine Generator for above ground pools.
Yes - We sell a unit for above ground pools up to 20,000 gallons. See >CPSC16AG You need to order the part # ending in AG. These units are specially designed with a recepticle at the bottom of the control box to plug in a pool pump. Make sure your AG pool is designed for salt water.
What is the difference between the cell cord labeled JD363200A and the one labeled JD363200A-11
JD363200A-11 is newer - designed to provide a tighter fit and eliminate intermittent display errors. You can use it in place of the older JD363200A cord.
Can I buy a replacement cable for my CompuPool Cell?
Yes - The cell cable plug and cord is sold in two lengths 6' (JD363200A-11) and 15' (JD363200B-11). The cords fit all four CompuPool models.
Does this product include everything I need to install and start using?
The package includes the control box, salt cell, and the power cords for the two. The only thing you will need to purchase separately is the salt, which you can find locally at a home improvement store.
(5 out of 5 stars) Compu Pool 60k Salt System
Reviewed By: Anthony B. from Murfreesboro, TN ()
Pros: quick instal, CLEAR water, salt is CHEAP to buy- sure beats buying chlorine tablets that cause red eye.
Cons: None so far, only had unit 1 month
Wanting to transition from a chlorine system to a salt system I started a thorough research comparing brands, reliability, performance and price. I found that the CompuPool unit was the best priced in fact you can get a 60k gallon unit cheaper than a 40k GoldLine brand. It was easy to instal and has worked flawlessly. The pool water looks crystal clear. Completely amazing and wishing I had made the conversion years ago.

I spoke with INYO pools experts to help me size the correct compupool salt generator and ordered. The install was easy and simple.I have used the generator all season with only one problem. The generator is very easy to program and with in two weeks I had the correct chlorine level I needed based on my pump run time and the generator's out put level.This was a great investment.
(5 out of 5 stars) So far so good

Pros: Great quality and reliability. Easy Install
Cons: Difficult to recalibrate. Chlorine reading would be nice
Installed this a few months ago. It's been great. Life with a salt water system is much better than the old way. The Compupool is awesome. Only bit of complaint would be that it seems that my unit needs to be recalibrated (shows incorrect temperature and salt readings) and the only way to recalibrate it apparently is to open it up, which is definitely a pain. So much so that I haven't done it yet. But I think that's typical of most units, so don't let that dis-way you. This is a great unit and highly recommended.
(1 out of 5 stars) CompuPool salt chlorinator doesn't work
Reviewed By: Chris W. from Southlake, TX ()
Pros: Sounds good
Cons: Doesn't deliver; called mft several times and still doesn't work
Three summer months and it hasn't worked. Told to "recalibrate", return LCD, doesnt' work. I've never worked harder at keeping my chlorine up. I have to add liquid chlorine and check it daily. If you go salt water, avoid this product.
