Salt Systems – Long Awaited Review


I truly hope this email finds you well.

One very common question among swimming pool owners Is…

“What type of salt water system should I be using?”

Actually, that’s a pretty good question.

There’s a TON of them out on the market. If you’re even considering picking one up, I would recommend reading this short message from top to bottom.

Over the years I’ve seen and reviewed countless systems. Let’s face it – there’s a lot of VERY GOOD systems available on the market.

Here are my top choices:

Here are a few options to point you in the right direction. These are systems that I have personally used and maintained, however, that doesn’t mean they’ll be the best solution for your needs.

This is meant to point you in the right direction and provide you with some different options to look at. If you have any questions please feel free to email me.

Please also be sure to do your own searching as well – this is designed to provide a ‘road map’ if you’re looking to replace your current unit

or if you’re on the market for a new one.

For Residential Environments:

Aqua Rite Chlorine Generator

Aqua Rite has been a true industry leader and frequently gaining more and more popularity. Aqua Rite is owned by Hayward, one of the most respected and well known names in the swimming pool industry.

Pentair IntelliChlor

This is a great solution that’s easily operated and the ‘viewer’ is simple to read and understand as well. I will admit that this system contains one of the easiest to understand and operate panels on the market today.

For under $800.00 (including the power module), this model is tough to beat from convenience and effectiveness.

Zodiac Clearwater

Zodiac produces GREAT PRODUCTS. Hands down, my personal favorite from a convenience and maintenance standpoint. Zodiac is the largest chlorinator manufacturer in the world. There are 2 points that really stand out with many chlorinators in their product line:

1. The LM Series incorporates a unique Super Chlorination feature which can be activated at the touch of your fingertips. This is an extremely quick way to automatically boost chlorine levels to compensate for heavy bather load or increases in temperature.

2. Actually does a pretty good job when it comes to ‘self cleaning’. Many units advertise them to be self cleaning, but their are few systems on the market that do a decent job. This is one of them.

If you’re currently shopping for a salt system, I would highly recommend sticking with one of the ‘big 3’. From a value standpoint and getting a good bang for your buck, they’re tough to beat.

If you want the ‘full scoop’ with NO DRIBBLE when it comes to salt systems or any other facet of your swimming pool, please be sure to visit:


“Professional Grade” is jam packed with INVALUABLE tips to save you massive amounts of time, money and energy with your swimming pool.

For many swimming pool owners this is their ONE SINGLE RESOURCE of information that they use when it comes to maintaining one of the most expensive assets they’ll every own – their swimming pool. This should be your ‘one stop’, single resource as well.
