Product Description

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.

How often does the turbo cell have to be replaced?

A  Answered on 9/14/2006 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

We have found the lifetime expectancy of the turbo cell is 3-5 years.

How would I go about changing an above ground pool from chlorine to salt water? Can it be done?

A  Answered on 4/30/2007 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

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.

What is the difference between the Aqua Trol HP and RJ?

A  Answered on 4/6/2008 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

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?

A  Answered on 5/10/2008 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

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.

Can I use the AquaTrol for an in-ground pool?

A  Answered on 7/23/2008 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

According to the manufacturer, the AQTROLHP, which has a hose or pipe connection, can be used for small in-ground pools below 18,000 gallons.  However, it would be more efficient to use the AquaRite in-ground model for either 20,000 or 40,000 gallons.
