I was flipping through the owner's manual for my heater and came across this little blurb..
"The LXi heater is specifi cally designed for heating
fresh water swimming pools and spas, and with
proper installation and care, they will provide years of
reliable service. Do not use the heater to maintain pool
or spa water temperature below 70Â°F. Do not use it as
a heating boiler or general service water heater or to
heat salt water. Consult your dealer for the appropriate
Zodiac products for these applications."
Curious, as this is the heater my pool builder installed for my salt water pool, I called Jandy (actually online chat which was very convienient) and was told "only for certain ppm. The recommended ppm for any of our chlorinators will be fine with the heater." I asked if the 3200 to 4000 ppm recommended for my Zodiac Duoclear would be fine and was told that it was.
So, does this sound right, and what exactly would be considered 'salt' water then? Ocean water?
