Did You Know?

The recommended salt level in pools is 3,000 ppm — less salt than in human tears. The ocean is 30,000 ppm, making a salt pool 1/10 the salinity and the salt barely detectable.

How Salt Chlorination Works

As a natural, effective sanitization alternative to harsh chemical chlorine, salt chlorination is becoming an increasingly popular choice for pool and spa owners–with over 1 million units installed worldwide.


Water in your pool containing the proper amount of dissolved salt enters the TurboCell®.


Power is applied to the Cell, converting dissolved salt into chlorine gas.


The chlorine gas dissolves into the water.


Water with pure, fresh chlorine is returned into the pool, satisfying 100% of your pool’s chlorination needs.
