The Saltigem automatic salt chlorinator is the latest offering from Pool Controls, which has almost 30 years’ experience in water quality management.
If you prefer a salt water pool, the Saltigem will use salt dissolved in the water to keep your pool clean and safe – and requires only half the salt used by some other brands of salt chlorinator. The Saltigem works by using an electrolytic cell to generate free chlorine, sanitising the pool water. Once it has done its job, the free chlorine reverts back to salt.
Efficiency and Control
Saltigem uses an innovative process-based digital timer instead of an old-fashioned mechanical timer. The timer gives the pool owner complete control of running times and making seasonal adjustments is a breeze!
The Saltigem communicates via its LCD display. It uses a FLASH processor that remembers how it has been programmed even if power supply is interrupted. A rechargeable battery will power the clock in the event of a power cut.
The Saltigem can tell you if salt levels are too low, or if adjustments to running cycles need to be made due to seasonal temperature fluctuations.
Aftercare and Service
Pool Controls takes pride in its products and has a team of dedicated service technicians to make sure your requirements as a pool owner are met.
Saltigem offers you total control and peace of mind at a very competitive price.
The Saltigem will periodically reverse its cell polarity to keep the cell clean. This takes place automatically, and increases the efficiency and life of the cell.
Care for your pump
A big killer of pumps is “dry running”. Saltigem prevents this from happening by monitoring the cell for gas build-up. If gas is detected, Saltigem will first shut the cell off and if gas continues to build up in the system, the pump will also be shut off before serious damage occurs. This feature can also be used to automatically turn off your filter backwash – in case you forget to!
Optional Timer for your Pool Lighting
Saltigem comes with a timer outlet for your pool lighting system – turning it on and off automatically.
Optional pH Control
This Saltigem option allows you to control the pH of your salt water pool automatically. An innovative algorithm allows the Saltigem’s internal processor to calculate and predict pH changes and add acid as needed. The unit is “plug and play” – so installing pH valves to existing units is simple. You can even set a manual dose if a large adjustment is needed (for example after adding buffer).
