Hayward Aqua Rite Salt Generator 40,000 Gallons (W3AQR15)

Aqua Rite salt systems from Hayward are a great chlorine alternative allowing you to reduce operating costs of your pool and eliminate dependency on chlorine. As everyone tends to be staying at home more lately, improving the backyard, hardscape, and outdoor living have increased in popularity. Because of this, swimming pools are in high demand and chlorine expenses are on the rise. Combine this with an industry wide chlorine shortage and it’s a great time to make the change to salt.

No more lugging around heavy chlorine buckets, storing chlorine, mixing it, or worrying about correct levels. Going with salt opens up the possibility of saving 50% or more when compared to chlorine expenses.

Moving away from chlorine also solves the red itchy eye and irritated skin problems that some swimmers encounter. These issues are replaced with silky soft water without that well known chlorine odor.  This Aqua Rite system is great for both new and existing pools up to 40,000 gallons. It is simple to operate and install, while being able to work with all automation systems on the market. The Aqua Rite system allows you to adjust chlorine output anywhere from 0 to 100%, it can clean itself and is protected with a durable enclosure and rugged connections that are meant to be outside.

A salt system takes ordinary salt, and with the help of a safe electrical current, turns it into chlorine which can be used to disinfect and make your pool safe for everyone to use. The chlorinator only needs a small amount of salt at a time, around 1 teaspoon for every gallon of water, thus creating an endless chlorine supply. This salt water is not like the ocean, in that you can’t taste the salt or smell it. It is at a minimal level while remaining highly effective in creating chlorine for sanitization purposes. This environmentally friendly and self-renewing process produces a large amount of chlorine a day, enough to keep the water in a 40,000-gallon pool clean, clear, and luxuriously soft.

The Aqua Rite salt system has two components. The first is the control box and the second is the Turbo Cell. The Turbo Cell is installed on the pool’s return line beyond the filter, pump, and heater. When the pool water passes through the cell, the electrical charge being monitored from the control box converts the dissolved salt in the water to fresh chlorine. The water is then dispersed evenly throughout the pool by the return jets. Each time the water is recirculated, the salt-based chlorine gets recharged and the cycle is repeated.

Hayward manufactures their Turbo Cells in three sizes to provide the best cost-effective chlorination possible. The cell sizes are 15K, 25K, and 40K and correspond to the gallons of water that each pool has. It is advised to upsize the cell whenever possible to prolong its lifespan but also ensuring the ability to quickly increase the production of chlorine as is needed.

Aqua Rite Salt Systems really are one of the top systems in the entire world. They offer a great warranty along with their luxuriously soft water. NSF certified for chlorine delivery rates and ETL safety certified, these cells are a great cost-effective investment for your swimming pool.
