The pool is approximately 15,000 gallons.
This is a saltwater pool. Saltwater pools use dissolved
ppm) as a store for the
chlorination system. The chlorinator uses
electrolysis to break down the salt (NaCl).
The resulting chemical reaction eventually produces hypochlorous
and sodium hypochlorite (NaClO),
which are the sanitizing agents already commonly used in swimming
pools. As such, a saltwater pool is not actually chlorine-free; it
simply utilizes a chlorine generator instead of direct addition of
chlorine. The important distinction is that saltwater pools lack
chloramines, referred to as Combined Chlorine. Chloramines are
the irritants which give traditional pools the stigma of burning
eyes and caustic smell. The electrolytic process burns off
chloramines in the same manner as traditional shock (oxidizer).
The Chlorine Generator is located by the side of the pool house.
The Main Circuit Board replaced in July 2009

The control panel communicates with the Turbo Cell which
generates the chlorine.
The turbo cell was replaced in July 2009.
We had minor difficulties, when you program
it, make sure
that it is entered in as a T3, as opposed to a
T15 cell, and turn the
power at the breaker box on and off once to

We have a spare flow switch in the pool house.
