What is a salt chlorinator?

A salt chlorinator generate chlorine through converting salt in solution in your pool water into the oxidising agent chlorine. Chlorine in turn acts to kill any organic matter in the water – such as algae, bacteria etc. Historically, chlorine has been used as an oxidising agent to sanitising pools. Even today, it is still added to drinking water to kill water borne pathogens. Salt chlorinators afford a simple, cost effective proven method of dispensing and sanitizing pool water without handling some of the noxious and deleterious chlorine based compounds.
