Saltwater Generator Comparison
Learn the differences between the available saltwater generators in our helpful blog article.
Drop in Saltwater Systems
Systems such as the Chlorease Ultra, Solax Saltron Retro and the Solaxx Saltron Retro XL are an economical and effective way to convert the dissolved salt in the pool water into chlorine. These drop-in units hang over the pool wall and go directly into the pool water and include a low voltage power supply. An advantage to the Drop In units is the ease of installation on new or existing pools as there is no plumbing required. They also carry a lower price than Return Jet or Hard Plumbing systems.
Solaxx Saltron Retro XL
This self-contained purification system utilizes a natural process to generate pure chlorine. The electrolytic process uses a very low concentration of salt (less than a teaspoon per gallon) and generates free chlorine. Learn more...
Return Jet Saltwater Systems
Systems such as the Solaxx Saltron Retro Jet RJ, Hayward Aqualtrol RJ and the Hayward Salt & Swim ABG are enhanced saltwater systems that simply connect to the water jet return fitting (on the outside of the pool) and covert the dissolved salt in the pool water into chlorine. These return jet saltwater systems include easy-to-read control panels that accurately calculate salt levels providing soft, silky water. Most customers prefer the sleeker design of the Return Jet Saltwater Systems rather than the units that hang inside the actual pool water. This way the people swimming in your pool cannot accidentally touch or bump into the unit.
Hard Plumbing Saltwater Systems
Systems such as the Solaxx Saltron Reliant, connect to the return line of the pool with PVC pipe or flexible PVC pipe, producing chlorine through the dissolved salt in the pool water. This unit includes a flow switch and control box that features easy push button icons with LED indicators. The flow switch allows you to install the saltwater system in line with your filter system. Hard Plumbing Saltwater Systems can be installed vertically or horizontally which is great for semi-inground installation. It does not have to be mounted to the return jet like the RJ models.
Solaxx Saltron Reliant Saltwater Chlorine Generator Up To 30,000 Gallons
The Reliant system produces a pure, elemental form of chlorine by electrolysis of salt added to the pool water. After the salt is converted to chlorine and bacteria has been killed, the chlorine reverts back to salt and this process is ongoing. The salt concentration is very low (less than a human tear) and the water feels soft, silky and sparkling clean!
