Chlorine Generator Installation

Chlorine Generator InstallationChlorine generator installation is something that can be done by many homeowners. First, you will need to choose the chlorine generator best-suited for your pool. For the installation process you will need a few common tools in addition to the chlorine generator itself. Here’s a list of the items typically needed to quickly complete your installation of a chlorine generator:

  • Two feet of PVC Pipe, 1.5” or 2”
  • Two 90 degree PVC elbows or couplings
  • Medium-duty PVC Glue
  • Hacksaw for cutting PVC pipe

The chlorine generator cell will be installed in the pool’s water return line, after the heater (if you have one) and after the filter. To connect the chlorine generator cell, you will cut a gap in the return line and glue in the PVC elbows or couplings. A short piece of PVC pipe may be needed to extend the elbows or couplings to position the cell in a handy spot. The water flow will be routed through the cell and then back to the return line.

Next, the chlorine generator controls will need to be connected to an electrical power source. Using an outdoor plug, you may connect it to a nearby outlet or simply have it wired directly into the pool pump’s timer or switch. Power consumption is relatively low so additional circuits are rarely required. Once completed, the chlorine generator will come on whenever the main pool pump is activated.

How Do Salt Water
Chlorinators Work?

A salt chlorine generator will keep your pool water clean by converting the salt to chlorine. This process is achieved through electrolysis and causes the salt to separate into sodium and chloride which creates hypochlorous acid that keeps your pool clean.
