Hayward Aqua Rite salt systems are a great way to get away from reliance on chlorine and save on pool operating costs in the process. Backyard landscaping and outdoor living are very popular these days creating a very high demand for swimming pools as the backyard becomes a focal point for family fun. Combine this with the chlorine shortage and now is a great time to make the jump over to salt.
Investing in a salt system eliminates the need to purchase chlorine. This means no more lugging it around, storing it, mixing it, and dealing with those awkward and hard to maneuver buckets. No more red, itchy eyes along with that chemical smell. Pool water treated with salt is silky soft and you only have to replace the salt cell when the system indicates it.
The Aqua Rite is ideal for both new and existing pools up to 25,000 gallons. The system is easy to operate and a convenient chlorine alternative. The Hayward Aqua Rite salt system works with all automation systems and is adjustable from 0% to 100% chlorine output. The salt cell can self-clean and is protected by a weatherproof enclosure as well as durable and rugged connections that support outdoor use.
A salt system works by creating chlorine from ordinary salt. When you think salt water in a pool it’s not like the water you find at the ocean as the salt content is very low and not noticeable like it is while at the beach. The chlorination process only requires a small amount of salt at a time equating to one teaspoon for every gallon of water. This simple recipe, combined with electrolysis, creates a supply of chlorine that’s basically endless. Salt systems are friendly to the environment and this specific model produces enough chlorine daily to keep the water optimized in a pool containing up to 25,000 gallons of water.
Aqua Rite has two components making up its system. The first is the control box and the second is the patented Turbo Cell. The cell is installed on the return line of the pool system behind the pump, filter, and heater. The way that it works is water passes through the cell and an electrical charge generated from the control box converts the dissolved salt into chlorine through an electrolytic process. The water is then sent back to the pool through the return line and gets mixed. Each time that the water is recirculated this process happens again thus ensuring that the pool water has chlorine at the needed levels.
Turbo Cells from Hayward are available in three different sizes including 15K, 25K, and 40K gallons. They are offered this way to make sure that you have the correct sized salt chlorination for your pool. Multiple sizes give you the most cost-effective chlorination possible but it’s also advised to upsize where possible to extend product lifecycle and also to retain the ability to super chlorinate the system if needed.
Hayward has a long history of reliability and performance in the industry and their salt systems are no exception. The Aqua Rite systems are truly some of the best in the world offering a great warranty along with safe pool water for you, your family, and friends.
