Model # W3AQ-TROL-HP-TL
Alternate Part #'s W3AQTROLRJTL
The Aqua Trol Electronic Chlorine Generator (also known as a salt chlorinator) is designed specifically for above ground pools up to 18,000 gallons. The Aqua Trol has all the same functions and features of the Aqua Rite but with a lower chlorine output.
The Aqua Trol also has an integral time clock for control of the pool filtration pump. Since many above ground pools already have a single electrical outlet for the filter pump, the Aqua Trol is designed with an outlet (timer controlled) for the filter pump to plug into, the Aqua Trol then plugs into the original outlet the filter pump was using. The savings on chlorine and electrical power alone (if the pump was previously running 24 hours), will have the Aqua Trol paying for itself in just a few short years. The Aqua Trol system typically installs in less than 30 minutes and is very easy to operate.

What is the difference between the Aqua Trol HP and RJ?
The HP (Hose Pipe) version is installed in the hoses/pipes next to your pool filter, where the RJ (Return Jet) version the cell is mounted directly to the return jet on the side of your pool. Both units work exactly the same but you would need to determine which one would be easier to install from a plumbing stand point.

I see you have a couple salt chlorine generators for above ground pools. Can you tell me what you would recommend and why?
I would suggest the AquaTrol Salt Chlorine Generator as it is much higher quality product than the ChlorEase. The AquaTrol has much more titanium coating on the blades of the salt cell which makes the salt cell last much longer, so you should get about 4-6 years out of the salt cell on the AquaTrol. The AquaTrol comes in several models first you can get in an HP model which would be installed in the plumbing next to your pool pump or you can get it in an RJ model which would hook up directly to the return jet on your pool (Both models perform identically, you would just need to choose the one that would work best for your application - the RJ is quite a bit less and operates the same) Lastly the AquaTrol is available with a standard 3 prong plug or a Twist Lock depending on the electrical receptacle you have available to you.

I am confused. The photos all show the generator and the turbo cell as a package. Does the turbo cell come WITH the generator or is this the price of JUST the generator and then you purchase the turbo cell separately? Thanks
This price is for the complete AquaTrol with Power Supply and Turbo Cell.
How much salt does the system require?
The Aqua Trol works best with approximately 3200 ppm salt, which is roughly the equivalent to a teaspoon per gallon. However, the Aqua Trol® will operate with salt levels anywhere from 2700 ppm to 3400 ppm.
(5 out of 5 stars) chlorine generator it actualy works
Reviewed By: dutchman from Newnan , GA ()
Pros: automatic, pump timer built in, works well
Cons: display codes not explained in manual
the kit arrived sooner than expected, relatively simple to install, If you can place generator close to the jet it turns out you don't need the flow switch, but I installed it anyway. The unit will not generate if the water is too cold, it was also too cold to swim. I think this thing saved me about $200 in chlorine tabs and shock last season alone. No more red eye
(5 out of 5 stars) Aqua Trol Chlorinator
Reviewed By: edsel6 from North Haledon, NJ ()
Pros: Easy to set up
Cons: Very large and bulky
Very easy to hook up. Just turned it on to chlorinate after adding my salt and running it for the 1st 24 hours without chlorinating. Both units are rather large. Photo is very deceiving. Main circuit box is very heavy - 11 inches wide by 13" high so I had to add a new post to mount it to. Chlorinator assembled is about 2 feet long. Running it now and will see how it works.
