I have a salt water pool chlorinator in Perth and it is an absolute dream. I don't have to worry about mixing chemicals or chlorine as the pool creates its own chlorine from salt in the pool. I only have to put bags of salt in my pool.
Having said that, chlorinators do not last for ever and I have just recently had to replace mine. Warm Springs Pool And Spa Repairs can supply, install or repair your salt water pool chlorinator.
How do swimming pool chlorinators work?
Chlorinators work by exploiting basic chemistry. Get a full run down on the chemistry involved.
How much salt does my chlorinator require?
This will depend greatly on the size of your pool but for an average size pool you will require about 7 x 20kg bags of salt to get started and then about 1 bag per month.
Where should I buy salt from?
You can buy salt from any reputable swimming pool supply store in Perth but Bunnings sells salt at a very reasonable price and they usually have it out the front so it is easy to load into your car.
How much does pool salt cost?
A 20kg bag of salt will cost between $7 and $12 depending on where you purchase it from.
What is the best way to test my salt levels?
Aqua Chek provide a fantastic test strip for testing the salt levels in your pool. You can purchase these from pool stores or from Bunnings.
Do I need to service my pool chlorinator?
Usually no. Your chlorinator should run trouble free for 10 to 15 years. However if you do have problems you will need to call a qualified technician to come and help.

I was wondering if I could organise a time/day with you to get a quote on repairing a Hurlcon VX 13S salt chlorinator?
I have a Saltigem chlorinator system with a Halcyon pump and I have two problems that have cropped up. The first is that the chlorinator needs repair/replacement - I keep getting low conductivity errors (I've checked the salt levels and all appears within normal). I took the unit apart to clean it and noticed that the zinc cathode is quite corroded, which may explain why it's not working.
The more pressing problem I have is that my pump has been resetting and I've been getting a "no flow/gas in system" warning. I can't seem to narrow down the issue - as best I can tell the water is circulating normally in the pool and through the pump when it's on and I can't see any build-up of air in any of the visible parts of the pump.
I'm in Carlisle Perth Western Australia.
Our 2nd chlorinator is 5yrs 6mths old has just stopped working. Can it be repaired or does it just need to be replaced. It is a ESRCL 200 Monarch Pool System salt water. I have the cylinder still in the box unused. Thanks

Warm Springs Pool and Spa Repairs 0409 874 343 How Does Salt Water Pool Chlorination Work? Many people have started to look into salt water pools. The idea with these is that there is far less maintenance needed than with the traditional chlorinated pools. However, it helps if you are able to understand how this type of pool works and how it differs from the traditional pools of the past. Here is a little information to help you understand how these pools work. Salt Water Pool Chlorinator There is a salt water chlorinator unit with this type of pool. The job that it has is to make sure that it turns the salt into chlorination as it passes through the system. The chlorine generator breaks down the salt and water to sodium hypochlorite and hypochlorous acid. These are agents for sanitizing that are used commonly in pools. So as you can see these pools are not chlorine free but instead they simply use a generator instead of having to add the chlorine in directly.

Warm Springs Pool and Spa Repairs 0409 874 343 When to clean and service your swimming pool chlorinator When to Clean the Chlorinator A water chlorination system is designed to sanitize a swimming pool in the safest fashion available on the market. Salt water chlorination is one of the most popular means by which individuals sanitize their pools. Chlorinated water has a very benign and gentle effect on your body, face, skin, as well as your eyes. Essentially, a chlorinator goes through a systematic process in order to cleanse the water and add chlorine molecules to it. In this device, there are metal electrodes that take ordinary salt water, and convert it into chlorinated water by means of electrolysis. In some cases, however, a chlorinator cannot properly do its job because it has suffered a gradual build up of specific minerals, which leads to the increase in what is termed hard water. This then creates an obstacle for the electrolysis device, and obstructs its ability to produce chlorine. When this occurs, it becomes necessary to to clean this device in order to endure the production of chlorine in the pool. How to Clean the Chlorinator Using a few simple steps, you can in fact clean this chlorine system in your pool if it has become clogged with certain minerals. The first step to cleaning this device is to shut down the pool pump, especially since you will be attempting to clean the electrolysis cell... Full article ⇢
