    Hayward CL200 installation

    Hello, I'm new to the forum and fairly new as a pool owner.
    My question is...I just purchased the CL200 chlorinator but am getting confused on the connections I need. Do I need to order the sp1500unpak1 or sp1500unpak2? The owners manual isn't too clear and mentions both options. Can someone break it down for me in laymans terms please?

    Thanks in advance...
    -Dan

    Welcome to the forum!

    Since that chlorinator is for pucks, I have to ask the question...will you be chlorinating your pool exclusively with pucks?

    That is usually not a good idea for pool maintenance. Those pucks will constantly add CYA and lower pH. The CYA will keep building up and increase the level of FC you need to maintain a clear pool. They can work if you have a sand filter that you backwash often and if you drain a lot of the water for winterization, but other than that you will eventually run into problems. Read about different types of chlorine, and you will see what I mean: pool-school/types_chlorine_pool

    Well that doesn't really answer my question, but what is your suggestion then?

    Bleach or liquid chlorine. No unwanted side effects.

    Sending the CL200 back. I guess I shouldn't have been so impulsive, and done more research upfront first. That being said, I'll be looking at the liquid methods, along with getting a better grasp on chemistry and maintenance.
    Thanks for the replies!

    Great idea. We were all in your place once. You will be glad you are using the BBB method when you see how sparkly your pool is. If you have any questions, be sure to ask. We will always be here to help.
