Crystal Pure Salt System by PureLine
The PureLine Crystal Pure Salt System makes the process of chlorinating the pool a breeze for you. When your pump runs, you will be producing chlorine, ensuring a steady dose into your pool water. The more consistent your chlorine levels are in your pool, the fewer chemicals you will use overall. Free yourself and your pool guests from the itchy, dry feeling of regular chlorine. With a salt water chlorine generator, the water feels smooth and won't leave a white residue on your skin. The Crystal Pure generator cell easily plumbs in-line and has quick disconnect unions for easy access.
Crystal Pure Heavy Duty Vs. Crystal Pure Standard
This year we have added a few new models of Crystal Pure Salt Systems to our lineup and these are labeled as Heavy Duty. The Heavy duty is the same system as the standard but with two main advantages...
The extra lifespan on the heavy duty salt cell is due to more Ruthenium coating on the cell plates. Cell life works as follows, say you run your pump 8 hours per day and you set your Crystal Pure to 50% chlorine output then the cell will be running for 4 hrs. per day, thus using up 4 hrs. of cell life per day in this example.
Crystal Pure Optional Add-On Accessory Package
The Crystal Pure Optional Add-On Accessory Package includes several convenient tools for your swimming pool salt system. The package includes a Salt Cell Cleaning Stand, Salt Test Strips, and a Dummy Cell. The Cleaning Stand simplifies cell cleaning and eliminates having to soak the cell in a bucket of muriatic acid solution. Salt Test Strips are used to accurately measure the salt level in your pool. The dummy cell is used during cell cleaning, winter, and spring startup.
Optional Add-On Accessories
This cleaning stand simplifies cell cleaning and eliminates having to soak the cell in a bucket of muriatic acid solution. This Cleaning stand is used for PureLine Crystal Pure salt cells. You should clean your salt cell every 2 months to avoid calcium build up on your salt cell. By cleaning your salt cell regularly you will prolong the life of the cell. Also if you get too much calcium build up on the salt cell then the system will stop producing chlorine, regular cleanings ensure that your salt system will not stop producing chlorine.

Salt Test Strips are used to accurately measure the salt level in your pool. The Crystal Pure Salt System does measure and give salt readout levels on the power supply however it is nice to have salt test strips upon startup of your Salt System. During startup up you will use your test strips to make sure that you add the correct amount of salt to your pool, it is also good to be able to compare the salt readings on the power supply to those of the salt test strips to make sure the system is giving accurate salt readings.
This straight pipe holder also called a dummy cell is used for several scenarios which we have listed below.
Winter: It is suggested that in areas of the country that you close your pool for the winter that you replace your normal cell with this dummy cell, the reason being is that the standard cell is expensive and by removing the standard cell you will prolong the cell's life.
Cell Cleaning: When you remove your normal cell for cleaning it is nice to have the dummy cell as you can replace the normal cell with the dummy cell so you continue to filter your pool while you clean your cell.
Spring Start-Up: The dummy cell is great to use during spring start up as quite often the pool can be quite dirty and you don't want large dirt and debris to get lodged in your standard salt cell.

I run my pump 24hrs 7Days a week 6months every year so how long will the cell last
Hi Scott, If ran the system at 50% production then it would run 12 hrs./day x 182 days / year = 2,190 hrs. per year. The cell has a 10,000 hr. life so at this calculation you would be looking at roughly 5 years. However you should be able to run the system much lower than 50% probably closer to 30% which would mean longer life on the cell.
Does the piping kit include the 2" to 3" adapters for the salt cell?
Hi, Gregg. The unions included with this system can be used with 1.5 and 2" pipes. You will have to purchase pvc reducers separately.
looking at the pl7704 salt chlorinator
i have 35,000 gallon pool variable speed pump, in summer i run the pump 18 hours a day at a lower speed,
most things i have read is run your salt at 50% for 8 hours but if I'm running my pump at 18 hours would i run it at 25%??is there a calculation on how much salt should be made daily? or does the salt chlorinator have a timer where is only produces hours specified thanks
Hi, Jim. You can set the chlorine output at a lower percentage if the pump is operating 18 hours a day. However, with a variable speed pump, the operating RPMs will have to be sufficient to activate the flow switch. This system can produce 3.18 lbs of chlorine in a 24hr period or in super chlorinating mode.
what is the difference between the regular and heavy duty unit, I am currently using an Auarite 40,000 gallons unit for a 25000 gallon pool, is the 60,000 too big? Do you make a 40?
Hi Terry, The heavy-duty system has more ruthenium coating on the blades of the salt cell. When the ruthenium coating wears off of the cell blades is when the cell needs to be replaced. The additional ruthenium coating means you get a longer life out of the cell (10,000 hrs. vs. 7,000 hrs. on the standard cell), the heavy-duty system also carries a longer warranty 3 years vs. 2 years. I do like going with the larger 60,000-gallon system for your pool as the larger system means you can really dial up the salt system when you have demanding salt conditions, however, most of the time you will be on a low setting meaning you will get much longer life out of your cell. We are currently out of stock on the 40,000-gallon system and that should be in stock in about 1 month, but I think you can't go wrong with the 60,000-gallon system.
Just two more questions. My plumbing is 2 inch and the salt system uses three inch. Adapters are supplied, correct?
And, I have a silver/zinc ionizer. If I decide to keep it should I install it before or after the cell and/ or flow switch.
Hi, Ron. This system includes the 2" pvc tail end which will be compatible with your plumbing. The ionizer can be installed before the cell and flow switch.
Can the cell be mounted vertically instead of horizontally?
Do you have 110 volt cords for this model?
What kind of electrical hookup does the unit need?
Hi Henry, This system can be wired 115V or 230V. If you wire it 230V it is typically hardwired. If you wire it 115V then you can hardwire the salt system or purchase this Cord with 3 Prong Plug so you can plug the salt system directly into a 115V outlet. With the cord I suggested you will need to remove the spade connectors and strip the wire about 1 inch, but it is very easy.
What is the difference between these regular and the heavy duty salt systems? Besides the $100.
The Heavy duty is the same system as the standard but with two main advantages...1. The warranty is 3 year on the Heavy Duty Vs. 2 years on the Standard 2. The cell life on the Heavy Duty is 10,000 hrs. Vs. 7,000 hrs. on the Standard. The extra lifespan on the heavy duty salt cell is due to more Ruthenium coating on the cell plates. Cell life works as follows, say you run your pump 8 hours per day and you set your Crystal Pure to 50% chlorine output then the cell will be running for 4 hrs. per day, thus using up 4 hrs. of cell life per day in this example.
I have a 38000 gallon pool. Are there any advantage or disadvantages to using the 60K unit over the 40K unit other than the price? Would the cell last significantly longer?
Hi. The major benefit is that the 60K unit cell will last longer than the 40K cell.
