  • Handles Pools up to 20,000 Gallons

Description

Saltron Retro is a salt chlorine generator for in-ground and above ground swimming pools up to 20,000 gallons that requires no plumbing or electrical contracting work to install. Perfect for after-market installation. This self-contained purification system utilizes a natural process to generate pure chlorine. The electrolytic process uses a very low concentration of salt (less then a teaspoon per gallon) and generates free chlorine. The chlorine continuously kills bacteria and algae and then reverts back to salt. This indefinite cycle leaves the water feeling silky, soft, refreshing and sparkling clear. Saltron is easy to install, economical and fully automatic. No more purchasing, transportation or storage of chlorine. No more skin irritations and itchy red eyes. No more faded bathing suits. Saltron Retro includes a programmable digital timer to adjust chlorine output and LED indicator lights illuminate for easy salt level reference. The commercial grade titanium cell plates reverse polarity keeps cell clean and prevents scaling. The clear salt cell housing allows user to easily inspect cell for scaling. Switch-mode power supply provides smooth current to cell resulting in longer lifetime. Saltron systems work on a salt level to 3,000 ppm. Input - 115 VAC, 50/60 Hz, 1.5 AMPS || 230 VAC, 50/60 Hz, 0.75 AMPS

abunda_amazon_reviews This works and easy set up, no need to hire anyone !!!! I paid for this from Amazon. Solaxx CLG10A Saltron Retro Self Cleaning Salt Chlorine Generator with Built In Timer for Inground and Aboveground Pools Up To 20,000 Gallons. See pictures and video, I dripped some chlorine tester drop directly in the pool where the Solaxx was running. You can clearly see it generates good Chlorine levels from this thing. Also, a picture of the chlorine level kit. That shows it has a good amount of chlorine, and no other added chemicals, but acid. My expensive Hayward AQR15 Aqua Rite In-Ground Chlorine Generator got burned up, the mother board. It would cost about $300-1500 to fix, and I even changed one part. But the mother board gets to hot so it frys things up in there, I am sure something else would have broken on it. Usually when one part starts to fail, others might soon. I only have a 15,000 gal in-ground pool. So I took a chance on this Solaxx. It has been about 6 months now, Texas Summer, hitting 90-100 degrees hot days. It took about 2 full days to get the chlorine level good. Once there, I didn't need to add any chlorine tablets to keep the level good. For a Salt pool, your PH will always be high, so add a lot of acid. Other than that, nothing much, but normal cleaning out leaves, etc. To set this up, no need to hire anyone...You just plug in. I put mine along the fence. The cord was long enough to reach my outlet. To set up with a timer. I used an outdoor timer with a cord. I set the timer to turn for about 6 hours, off for 1 hour, and on for 6 more hours, etc. So when I put the Solaxx to my timer, the Solaxx will be on for 6 hours at a time, and rest for 1 hour. I figure, if this breaks in a year, that cost is still only running me $250 per year. The other expense crap will also break down, but cost you 10 times more. Plus, this is an easy set up, I don't need to pay and electrician or pool guy $$$$ This just tells you, Hayward, and all the others are BIG Moneymaker schemes...when this Solaxx can do almost the same thing with less parts and cost are more real to what the parts may only cost. Very happy with this product. Update April 9, 2017. Getting my pool ready for spring. I put my Solaxx retro away for the winter in my garage and made sure I cleaned the cell with acid until all the crud is off the platinum plates. During the winter I just used normal chlorine tablet, but with colder water, didn't use too much. And like all starting the pool season, you clean, clean, shock it and clean my DE filters. Next, I put 9 40lb bags of pool salt and brought it up about 4000 salt ppm. Before using the Solaxx, my chlorine level was below .6 and I plugged it in, the power box turned on, set for 21 hours, it shows a normal level of salt on its indicator and started running about 11 am. The next morning the chlorine level is not over 5.0............and checked at the far end too, also over 5.0 chlorine level. So, my hopes as of now, came true, it is my start of a second season, and see if this will last for the summer. Also, I learned how to maintain the cell with acid, and used a timer to allow to only turn on about every 6 hours, and rest an hour before turning on again.;;August 5, 2016;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;updated a year later: Solaxx works, check out the pictures and Video of chlorine levels. Easy set up too.;;lgonza;;;Installed this item around labor day 2017. I've been running a Salt Water Generator (SWG) for about 5 years. First unit was an inline with "Copper" that supposedly helped kill algae. All I had was headaches, clumps of blue/green on pool sides and cell scaling... This unit (Saltron) changed it all. Setup: 24' X 48" pool, Hayward Earth Filter and a 3/4HP pump. Right after install I lowered the alkalinity by adding muratic acid. This also lowers the PH which I wasn't overly worried about. The old SWG with the "Copper Ions" raised the PH so much that I would normally have to add about 1-2 quarts of muratic acid per week. Well, this unit took almost three weeks to raise the PH back up to 7.2. Much less impact on PH. Now I'm running the pool on a timer. This was impossible with the previous SWG because it lost settings if the power was turned off or lost during an outage. Currently running the SWG at 5 hours and the pump for 6. On at 6am, off at noon. Back on at 6pm and off at midnight with the timer set at 6 hours. This allows for about 1 hour of pump run time after the Saltron shuts off. Figure the extra hour of circulation would help. Took off 1 star because the cover clip was a little pushed in and wouldn't clip in real well. Easy fix using a heat gun to warm the plastic and bending the clip out a little bit (see pic of clip). Feel this should have been caught during Q.A. at the factory. I've seen some have issues with the way the unit attaches to pool. It didn't fit my pool well either but it would be hard to make a unit that attaches like this to fit everything. They would have to make 40 different attachment methods. I shortened the plastic "Large Blue" bolt a little with a hack saw, re-set the threads with a small file, and was able to clear the underside of the pool rail easily. Currently the unit is running at OVER 4 on chlorine with the above settings (basically 10hrs/day). Pool is clear and the scaling issue has not been seen. I will update this if anything goes differently but right now I'm having trouble finding stuff to do since I'm not having to work on the pool constantly. This thing has really made the pool enjoyable. It runs, pool is clear and levels are equalized.... No complaints (yet)! ---Update 1 Oct 2017:. Not one green day this summer! Less than 1/2 gallon of muratic acid needed and the pool was just as clear when I closed it than opening.... Can't give this thing enough credit!;;June 24, 2017;;4.0 out of 5 stars;;Great Purchase!;;Rich;;;I was really happy with this for the first season. I just dropped it in the pool and it worked perfectly. Then came the second season and shortly after opening my pool, the unit no longer produced chlorine. On contacting Solaxx, I discovered that the cell has a very limited lifespan, which in North Carolina equates to slightly more than one season. Easy solution, purchase a new cell for a mere $200 plus shipping, which I did. Come this season I resigned myself to laying out another $200 for a new cell, which I had to do shortly into the season. Then about a week after buying the cell, my pool started turning a shade of green. Turns out that the power supply has roughly a 2 season lifespan and then fails. (Read the other reviews, you will find I am not the only person to experience this.) Solaxx pointed out that "unfortunately the unit only has a one year guarantee", but they are willing to offer me a 20% discount on a new power supply. At this point I have given Solaxx over $650 in return for a non-functional chlorine generator and decided that Solaxx would not be getting any more of my money. A friend of mine has an inline chlorine generator that has worked flawlessly for four years, I should have just spent $650 dollars on the same model in the first place, instead of having Solaxx teach me that cheap is substantially more expensive in the long run. I have learnt my lesson and bought the same model as my friend.;;July 7, 2017;;1.0 out of 5 stars;;This should be called a money generator (for Solaxx), not a chlorine generator.;;Nic G.
