How to Install

Most saltwater chlorination systems require some plumbing and electrical work. There are DIY systems available in the market as well. Pool owners should read the instructions and determine their ability to perform the necessary work before attempting the job. Many pool supply stores and pool service companies offer installation, or you can find a certified installer here.

General Do's and Don'ts

  • Read and follow the manufacturer’s installation guide before installing a saltwater chlorination system.

  • Allow salt to circulate for 24 hours after addition before starting the installed chlorinator.

  • Do not install the cell in front of any other components of the filtration system. Cells are the last item in the system before water is returned to the pool.

  • Be aware of the safety requirements of your filtration and salt chlorination systems, such as electrical grounding and the required distance between electrical components and the pool.
