Product Review: IntelliChlor Chlorine Generator

pool chlorine generatorElectrolytic chlorine generation is an easy, effective and convenient way to keep your swimming pool water sparkling clean.  The IntelliChlor® chlorine generator by Pentair Water Pool and Spa® uses common table salt to produce all the chlorine your pool needs, right in your pool – safely, effectively and automatically.  Benefits of this salt chlorinator include:

  • The same sanitation performance as manual chlorine addition.
  • No need to buy, transport and store chlorine compounds.
  • Soft, silky water.

IntelliChlor takes electrolytic chlorine generation to a higher level of convenience, reliability and safety.  But to understand why the IntelliChlor generator is better, it helps to first understand how it works.  Ordinary table salt (sodium chloride) is added to the pool water – less than a teaspoon of salt per gallon of pool water is all that’s required.  As the dissolved salt flows through the generator cell, it is electrolytically converted to pure chlorine, which is then distributed throughout the pool, sanitizing the water and keeping it fresh and  clear.

Unlike conventional chlorine additives that must be constantly replenished, the salt in the chlorine generator is recycled continuously, day after day, to further reduce pool maintenance requirements.  The generator even keeps itself clean with an automatic reverse cycling feature that prevents scale build-up for longer cell life.

An Eco-Select™ Brand Product

Using only natural table salt, the IntelliChlor chlorine generator creates pure chlorine in your pool and eliminates the need to buy, store and add chlorine products manually.  In effect, fewer resources are used in the production, packaging and transportation of these pool chemical compounds.  That’s why IntelliChlor is an Eco Select brand product.

The Eco Select brand identifies Pentair’s “greenest” and most efficient equipment choices.  These products save energy, conserve water, eliminate noise, or otherwise contribute to a more environmentally responsible equipment system.  Green features of the IntelliChlor chlorine generator include:

  • Production and transportation energy and waste are reduced.  Less chlorine needs to be produced at chemical processing plants for use in swimming pools and spas.  This reduces emissions and energy use from production, packaging, and transportation.
  • Provides effective sanitization performance without the drawbacks of chlorine compounds.  You no longer need to buy, transport, store or handle chlorine products.  This reduces the chance of spills or accidental exposure.
  • Engineered to stand up to the toughest pool conditions and provide years of dependable service.  Control electronics are isolated in the cell for longer cell life, and waterproofed electronics allow for maximum reliability.
