Saltwater chlorination for pools and spas is fast becoming an industry standard and we specialize in the installation and repair of salt cell equipment. Now you can turn ordinary salt into a self-regenerating supply of pure chlorine for both pool and spa water that's clean, clear and soft. Electronic chlorination has become the simple, safe and affordable alternative to using harsh, chemically-produced chlorine to sanitize pools and spas.
A salt chlorination system can save time and money on your chemical bills, but it still needs to be serviced from time to time. The number one maintenance item for a salt water chlorinator is to clean the salt cell regularly, every 2-6 months, but only as needed. Mineral deposits bridge the space between the metal plates, and not just in hard water areas.
Premier Pool Service technicians will clean the buildup from your cell and restore it to its maximum efficiency. If your salt system shows Inspect Cell or Clean Cell, call Premier so our service technician can correct the problem. If you live in an area with high calcium levels, you may need to have your salt cells cleaned even more often.
You may not know this, but most salt cells won’t work well in water temperatures less than 60 degrees. For this reason, they may have trouble creating enough chlorine in the winter, for sunbelt pools. They can also be overworked in such temperatures, leading to a shorter lifespan.
Eventually, you’ll need a new salt cell. You’ll know it’s time when the chlorine output drops to low levels, despite a clean cell and sensor, proper water balance, salt levels and water temperature.
