Inyo Recommended Salt System


POWERCLEAN® SALT System 40K Gallon

CMP PowerClean SaltEcon 540

This is the future of salt chlorine generation. Powerclean Salt systems are designed to be durable, affordable and serviceable.

Salt systems have been around for years, but nothing like this. It’s time for a chlorine generator that pool professionals and homeowners will all love to use.

PowerClean SaltEcon chlorine generators feature an upgraded salt cell design with clear housing, self-aligning unions for easy installation, service, and Winterization.

The metal plates in a Powerclean Salt cell are each individually powered. Competing products have plates crammed close together so that they can “share” electricity.

The improved design lets us spread the plates further apart. This makes it easy to clean by hand. The wider spacing also helps prevent mineral buildup that bridges between plates-mineral bridging can lead to permanent damage.

?     Asked on 6/9/2020 by TJ Marsh

Does this unit have a super chlorinate or boost option with internal timer for the normal 24 hr run time of a super chlorinate after heavy swim traffic.

A  Answered on 6/9/2020 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi TJ, Yes this salt system does have a Boost Mode. Per the owner's manual... When in BOOST MODE (with the red BOOST light illuminated) the system will automatically operate for 72 hours of run time, and then reduce to the 100% level. Boost Mode should be used to offset “out of the ordinary” conditions: unusual weather or extremely high bather load.

Does this unit use a flow sensor or does it rely on the pool timer for it's shut-off? I also didn't notice a salt level indicator (Good/Add). Is there one not shown or do you need to perform water tests for salt level and/or free chlorine?

A  Answered on 5/25/2020 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

The Powerclean Salt Chlorinator has been designed with an internal electronic flow sensing tab. This device automatically switches the power to the electrolytic cell “OFF” when the water through the cell stops. It also relies on the pool timer to shut it off as well. This system does not have a salt level indicator. Salt level should be checked monthly using a Salt Test Strip.

Will this system work for a 20x40 pool with 10 ft depth in deepest part?

A  Answered on 4/16/2020 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Dawn, Your pool would be at the upper limits of this salt system but it would work. We show your pool is right at 40,000 gallons.

40000 salt systym ok with a 18x36 in ground pool and how much salt to change over to salt deep end by the way 8 ft

A  Answered on 4/15/2020 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Gary. Yes, this 40K system will be sufficient for your size pool. To determine the amount of salt you will need, you will have to get your water tested. You will never start from a zero salt level.

What is the difference between this and the ULTRA? How long will the cell last? Can I buy replacement cells? Is this as good as one of the more known name brands (Hayward, Pentair)?

A  Answered on 4/10/2020 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Stephen. The User Interface Design and the Ultra has a built-in sensor that monitors faults due to low flow, temperature, and calcium build-up. The cell can last 3-5 years based on daily usage. This system is just as good as the popular brands.
