POWERclean ULTRA Off-Line Chlorinator
What is the difference between an inline and offline chlorinator?
An inline chlorinator would be plumbed directly inline with the plumbing. For an existing pool, this would mean a section of pipe would need to be cut out to install the chlorinator. An offline chlorinator attaches to existing plumbing by chlorinator tubing (holes would be drilled into existing pipe to attach the tubing.)
The control valve has indicators of 0, .5 and 1. What is the correlation to how much chlorine is sent to the pool?
The most standard way to use the usual 99 percent trichlor tablet is based off of the 1 tablet per 5 thousand gallon ratio. As long as you follow that standard then you can have the chlorinator at max output which in this case is 5.
Does this unit use the same size tubing and fittings as the Hayward CL220 which is what I have now but am not happy with?
Hi Bob, The POWERclean Ultra Off-Line Chlorinator uses larger hose than comparable brands like the HaywardCL220. The Chlorinator hoses are 1/4" larger.

Screwdriver, Nut Drivers, Pliers, Drill
1) Place unit on pad near the pump for permanent location
2) Mark where 4 holes are to be drilled into concrete pad
3) Use concrete drill bit size appropriate for the concrete screws you use
4) After drilling holes, place base over holes making sure that it is facing in the proper direction to allow the chlorinator to flow properly
5) Locate where you are to attach the lines into your existing plumbing.
6) Using a 3/4" drill, drill the respective holes, making sure that you clear all the debris away from hole and any that fell inside the pipe.
7) Attach the heavy duty clamps provided. I used the additional clamp adapters so that it would fit over the smaller pipe.
8) Attach the lines as instructed, making sure that you don't overtighten anything.
9) As a final note, make sure that the cap on the chlorinator has enough clearance from your pipes, that you can unscrew it without having to take everything apart. I made the mistake, not accounting for the little "wings" that were on the cap. I ended up having to relocate the chlorinator so that I would have proper clearance.
10) It works great, with no leaks!
(5 out of 5 stars) Best Chlorinator I've had

Pros: Easy to open; easy to use
This was an easy and quick installation. I like the clear window so I can tell when I need to re-charge it. It is easy to open. These are things I did not like in my previous chlorinator.
(5 out of 5 stars) Like it a LOT better then Hayward I replaced

I have had 3 Haywards and all start having issues after 2 years. One cracked and all have had issues with the lids. This seems better built and has a lot bigger feed and return line. My only complaint is the directions aren't clear; had 2 different types of ends and I had to go to the company site to see which one to use :) But would recommend and buy again (if I ever need to again).
(5 out of 5 stars) Solid unit. Well built. Easy to install and assemble.

This is a very well made chlorinator. I have yet to get it going, but I am impressed with the build quality. The glass window will make it easy to see when I need to reload the chlorine tablets. The flow control feels solid, and the site glass will make it nice to see the rate of flow. Make sure you identify all the parts first. It didn't really come with assembly instructions, but it's not rocket science.
