Thread: Auto chlorination?

    Auto chlorination?

    Running a automatic clorinator and need to stop using the "pucks" that are causing hardness and stabilizer to go high. Is there some sort of solid that I can use in my clorinator for auto chlorination or is the only option a swcg? Current clorinator takes the 3 inch pucks.

    There are no solid forms that will work in your chlorinator that doesn't add CYA.

    There are several options for chlorination besides doing it manually. An injection pump, a liquidator. And a swcg are all good ways to do it.

    Re: Auto chlorination?

    Thanks. I was afraid of that what would u guys recommend for a guy that keeps a maintained pool but cannot check every day or even two days sometimes? SWCG? Is there any way (and would u need to) check salt water levels? My wife is a bit sensitive to the salt. Used to live in md near river water.

    An swcg is a good way to go and you don't need to check the salt very often.

    With a salt level of about 3000 to 5000 I don't think she'll have a problem with that.

    BTW thanks to this site and a little reading u guys saved me about 790.00 since Friday morning. That's counting my 30.00 donation and the " correct " things needed. Won't go into details I'm sure u herd it all before. Drain half the pool 900.00 in chemicals and bring a sample back! Wish u could have saved me 800.00 haha. Pool is almost 100 % thanks a million! Think I'm gonna give the swcg a go
