Salt Chlorinator CTX
Having a chlorinating salt machine installed in your pool allows pool bathers to enjoy the many benefits it can bring. It is a much healthier option with no harsh chemical odours.
Enjoy the feel of chemical-free purified water. Skin will feel soft and not dried out, no burning red-eye or skin irritations, no damage to your hair, and won’t ruin swimwear.
The feel of the water
Human tissue contains 9000 parts per million of salt. In comparison, seawater is 35,000 ppm.
A pool equipped with a ‘CTX’ Chlorinator has salt levels of 4000 ppm (parts per million), which is about the same level as a teardrop. Because the salinity is much closer to human tissue than a traditional chlorinated pool, the water feels softer and more comfortable.
Anyone that swims in a salt pool will tell you how wonderfully silky it feels.
The science bit
In the swimming pool, salt is added to the pool by pouring it across the bottom. The salt chlorinator consists of a control box and a salt cell. This salt cell consists of parallel titanium plates.
The control box sends a safe electrical DC charge to the cell; as water passes through the salt cell, the salt in the water turns into Hypochlorous acid. Which is the same component that is produced when any chlorine is added to the pool; as the water returns to the pool, this newly produced chlorine is introduced, keeping the pool sanitised and healthy.
