There is nothing fancy about this cleaner, unlike other chlorinators this product uses common table salt which will help turn into chlorine that your swimming pool needs. One reason why more pool owners are turning to chlorine generators is that it does use the harshness of pure chlorine. It is safer for your swimming pool and for those who use it. Now you can keep healthy levels of chlorine without the smell or the eye or skin irritation that often follows chlorine. Let’s take a look and some of the features and specifications of the Pentair IntelliChlor Automatic Chlorine Generator.

  1. The most terrible chlorine generator in the world.Never buy this product.The most terrible technical support.

  2. Biggest piece of garbage I’ve ever owned. Do not buy this product, very problematic and temperamental

  3. This unit produces a white, granular by product that clogs the unit itself and must be periodically cleaned. This involves removing the unit from the filtration system and soaking the interior with an acid wash. During the summer I must do mine about once a month or sooner.

    This granular by product also builds up on other parts of the cleaning system. I have pop-up heads in the floor of my pool connected to master distributer heads. The pop-up heads and master distributer heads have all become plugged and stop working due to this build up.

    The excess granular by product also builds up on the pool walls and steps. Some of the excess even builds up in piles on the bottom of my pool.

    The water quality is, in my opinion, not as good as a well balanced and maintained chlorine pool. There is a harshness in swimming in salt water.

    Customer service at IntelliChlor has not been very helpful in mitigating this situation. I guess the answer is that they don’t know what to do about it either. I asked if they know what the chemical make up of this material is and I haven’t been able to get a straight answer. For people with the proper equipment, I’m sure this material can be easily analyzed. They have probably done it and refuse to divulge the results.

    My recommendation is to avoid this and all salt systems for purifying your pool water.
