Pool Chlorine Generators, Replacement Salt Cells, Ozone Generators & Sanitizers

While chlorine is the most common sanitizer for pool’s, it’s not the only option. Chlorine isn’t for everyone. Whatever that reason, carries several other alternatives for you to turn to.

Choose between an ozone system, salt water generators, bromine tablets, mineral sanitizers or a system that utilizes UV light. The transition is easy, or we carry the supplies to keep your pool’s sanitization system well maintained. Whether you need to replace your salt cell, stock up on bromine or find a replacement cartridge to your mineral system, we have you covered.

Should I Make The Switch From Chlorine?

Chlorine, an affordable and highly efficient pool sanitizer, can be stabilized in sunlight. It is available in tablet or granular form, making it convenient for regular summertime pool maintenance. While chlorine is widely used and offers convenience, it may not be the optimal choice for everyone.

Although there are alternative methods for pool sanitation, chlorine is considered the most effective. When chlorine reacts with ammonia, it produces chloramines, which give off a distinctive odor and can cause redness in the eyes. If you have chlorine sensitivity or allergies, or if you prefer a milder chemical for your hair, skin, and eyes, it is worth considering alternative sanitization methods.

Which Sanitization System Is Best For Me?

As you consider each option, you’ll want to think about what best fits your needs and your budget. Upfront costs and your budget for maintenance throughout the summer should also be considered. As you narrow down what sanitization system best fits you and your pool consider each system’s specific attributes, along with their strengths and weaknesses.

  • Choose a Salt Chlorine Generator if you want to stop buying chlorine — except occasional shock — and don’t mind having to replace the cell every 3 to 5 years.
  • Choose Bromine Tablets if you want to put it in your spa, have a hard time stabilizing your pH or have your pool in limited sunlight. It’s also a good option if you don’t want to plumb more equipment onto your pump and filter system.
  • Choose an Ozone System if you want to prevent scaling, severely limit your chlorine usage and don’t mind the higher upfront cost.
  • Choose a Mineral Sanitizer if you want to switch to an environmentally friendly option and don’t mind still needing to use some chlorine to serve as an oxidizer.
  • Choose an Ultraviolet Light Sanitizer if you want to kill over 99% of microorganisms and bacteria but don’t mind using a little bit of chlorine as a residual.

How Can I Make The Switch From Chlorine?

Transitioning to a new system is not a complex procedure, but it is important to allocate ample time for its completion. Regardless of the chosen method, the initial step remains consistent: allowing the chlorine in your pool to fully dissipate before introducing any new chemicals or sanitization system. During the chlorine dissipation process, swimming in the pool is not recommended as there won't be any cleaning or sanitizing agents present. Once all traces of chlorine have vanished, you can proceed with implementing your new system or chemical and achieve a balanced pool.

The optimal timing to switch from chlorine to a different system is when you remove the pool cover in the spring. This is because chlorine levels naturally decrease during the winter through dissipation. If you are transitioning to bromine and utilizing a feeder, it is advisable to replace the feeder to prevent any mixing of bromine with residual chlorine.
