Chlorine Genie vs Current “Salt System” Chlorine Generation
Most pool professionals agree that dumping hundreds of pounds of salt in a swimming pool is environmentally a bad idea. In some areas, it is against the law. Salt is corrosive and can damage pool equipment, the pool surface, and surrounding landscaping and hardscaping. Instead of putting 800lbs of salt into a swimming pool, Chlorine Genie requires only 80lbs of clean salt and it is added directly to the unit—the salt never enters the pool water.
By putting the salt into the chlorine Genie unit instead of the pool, evaporation, reaction with other chemicals, and reaction with all of the metal in your pool equipment is eliminated. Even with the bests of care, it is recommended that pools be drained and have their water replaced every 3-5 years. Imagine dumping 30,000 gallons of salt water into your back yard, or worse, into the sewer. This salt water can kill plants, permanently destroy the fertility of the ground for gardening, and can be toxic for local birds and animals.
With the Chlorine Genie, all of these issues are eliminated. Since the pool water does not contain salt and only contains 1-3 PPM of chlorine, the water can be safely disposed of without the toxic effects on the environment.
The Chlorine Genie manufactures all of the chlorine needed by a pool and can even be used to adjust the pH of the pool eliminating the need to transport, store, and use muriatic acid or other products on a weekly basis.
- Genie uses softened tap water, so cells stay cleaner… requiring less service.
- Genie’s salt goes right into the brine tank… not in the pool.
- Genie uses a small amount of tap water… not hard pool water.
- Genie manufactures its own acid and base products…eliminating pH problems.
- Genie makes chlorine every day… reducing pump run times and energy consumption.
