    How do Saltwater Chlorine Generators get Oxygen to create Hypochlorous Acid?

    By splitting H20 molecules. You see the Hydrogen bubbles inside the generator. That's also why the pH climbs, all those Hydrogen ions.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.

    The more hydrogen ions the more basic the solution? I thought it was the opposite.

    It doesn't produce H+ ions, it produces H2 gas bubbles. pH climbs because all those bubbles is effectively aerating the water.
