Thread: Hayward Offline Chlorinator

    Hayward Offline Chlorinator

    A coworker just purchased a house that has an inground pool and he wants to install a Hayward Offline Chlorinator on his system. He asked me a question I never thought about before...if you have only flexible PVC between your pump and your filter, can you still use the saddle clamp setup?

    My recommendation for him was to drill the hole in a PVC elbow and attach the clamp there. He wasn't sure if the flex pipe leaving his pump to his filter had an elbow. If it doesn't, it would be easy to put one in, otherwise, is it OK to just install the saddle fitting of the flex PVC?

    I have never tried it personally, but I think most of us here would not suggest it. Might be just about as easy to replace the whole flex piece with hard PVC.

    I think his concern is with his travel schedule, his wife never puts enough chlorine in their old pool. At least it will be getting some chlorine vs none at all...

    Fair enough ... although a floater could do basically the same thing. But, if he already has the chlorinator, no harm in installing it I suppose as long as it is not used exclusively.
