TEAP 'Saliclor' Chlorine generator - Sanitises the pool and automatically controls the pH
Enjoy the smooth-as-silk sensation of swimming in a saltwater pool - and benefit from ultra-low levels of chlorine in your pool!
Chlorine, the commonest pool sanitation system, performs its main task well but it does so at a price.
Chlorine is expensive, corrosive, caustic and poisonous - dangerous to handle or even to breathe.
It's effective because it destroys anything organic by a process similar to combustion - (but hang on . . aren't PEOPLE organic?
Anyone who has been in a chlorine-sanitised pool will probably be familiar with the chemical odour, burning eyes, and possibly the accompanying skin/hair dryness. (Largely, these symptoms are caused by 'chloramines' - a group of chlorine compounds that are produced as a part of the chlorine combustion process and are a result of not enough chlorine in the pool, which many people are surprised by.)
Transportation, handling and storing Chlorine can also be problematic as it can react with other pool chemicals, notably pool acid, resulting in a potential release of poisonous chlorine gas, a fire or even an explosion.
As an alternative to the unpleasant side effects of chlorine, many pool owners are now changing to saline (salt water) purification systems or installing them from the outset in a new pool.
One of the best attributes of a salt-water pool is that they don't support algae so you'll spend less time dealing with that problem. TEAP systems also control the pH level automatically, so you'll spend less time keeping it within the ideal range of 7.2 - 7.6
The Saliclor Chlorine Generator produces chlorine gas by electrolysis of the salt water; so there is no longer a need for pool-owners to handle potentially harmful chemicals.
While still being very effective, the levels of residual chlorine in the water are ultra-low. There is still a trace of chlorine in a salt pool as Sodium Hypochlorite, but well maintained salt pool systems are much gentler than traditional chlorinated pools.
Salt water pools, on the whole, are easier to manage. The Saliclor Chlorine Generator takes all the guesswork out of pool sanitation and pH control - it's all automatic!
The digital control box automatically produces the current that breaks down the salt in the water, by electrolysis, as needed; producing billions of microscopic bubbles of chlorine gas. These bubbles can be seen in the transparent 'chlorination chamber', coming off the Titanium plates like 'smoke'.
The chlorine gas sanitises the volume of water in which it is produced, resulting in ultra-sanitised water being returned to your pool. By the time the newly-sanitised water has reached the pool 99% of the chlorine gas has re-combined (with the other compounds produced by electrolysis) and has reverted to salt.
The Saliclor control system automatically tests the water for salt level concentration and alerts you if more salt need to be added. It also takes over the job of testing pH levels and automatically adds acid to bring the pH to the correct level.
A salt-water pool has only the same concentration of salt as human tears, i.e. 0,55%; it's not 3.5-4% salt like the Mediterranean. - when the pool water gets in your eyes there is no stinging, redness or irritation. The addition of salt to the water also imparts a 'silkiness' that leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth.
As a bonus you can wave goodbye to dry skin, green hair, faded swimwear and the need to remove chlorine from the skin with a shower after a swim; because the pool has only tiny quantities of chlorine in the water.
The system will repay the cost of installation in around 2 years, and continue to provide inexpensive, healthy sanitation for your pool for many years to come. While the best pool options are initially a little more expensive to put in, they're a more cost-effective system in the end.
Converting your chlorinated pool to a salt water pool is not expensive. For many, this is one of the advantages. Chlorine is very expensive and unlikely to get cheaper anytime soon and, by comparison, the amount of salt you'll use during a year is pennies.
As a pricing guide: the Saliclor Combination System for a pool up to 80 cubic metres costs the pool-owner around €1850 inc IVA, fully installed.
