Hayward Aqua Trol Above Ground Salt System!

This model is for Return Jet installations

The Aqua Trol Electronic Chlorine Generator (also known as a salt chlorinator) is designed specifically for above ground pools up to 18,000 gallons. The Aqua Trol has all the same functions and features of the Aqua Rite but with a lower chlorine output.

The Aqua Trol also has an integral time clock for control of the pool filtration pump. Since many above ground pools already have a single electrical outlet for the filter pump, the Aqua Trol is designed with an outlet (timer controlled) for the filter pump to plug into, the Aqua Trol then plugs into the original outlet the filter pump was using. The savings on chlorine and electrical power alone (if the pump was previously running 24 hours), will have the Aqua Trol paying for itself in just a few short years. The Aqua Trol system typically installs in less than 30 minutes and is very easy to operate.

What a Little Salt Can Do

No more mixing, measuring and messing around with liquid or tablet chlorine again. Now you can automatically turn ordinary salt into a self-regenerating supply of pure chlorine for both pool and spa water that's clean, clear and luxuriously soft. Electronic chlorination has become the simple, safe and affordable alternative to using harsh, chemically-produced chlorine to sanitize pools and spas.

Unlike traditional chlorine treatments that require a regular routine of monitoring and replacing chlorine, electronic chlorination produces chlorine from common table salt. The key is our patented Turbo Cell?, a specially designed converter connected to the control unit.  As water passes through the Turbo Cell, an extremely safe electrical charge turns the salt previously added to the water into fresh sanitizing chlorine which is then dispensed evenly throughout the pool.  Just a teaspoon of salt per gallon is all it takes.   Installation is quick, easy and suitable for any new or existing pool.

No chlorine odor, low operating costs, pays for itself, and is virtually maintenance free?electronic chlorination is the ideal alternative to traditional factory produced chlorine for soft, silky-smooth water.

Plumbing Instructions

The cell and flow switch are plumbed in the return line to the pool. Install after (downstream) all the pool equipment (filter, heater, solar,etc.). The kit included in the Aqua Trol provides the necessary plumbing components for either 2" (51mm) rigid PVC piping installation or 1½ - 1¼" (38-32mm) flexible hose installation.  

Return Jet installation (-RJ option): Unscrew the the hose adaptor from the pool return jet fitting and, in its place, screw in the right-angle cell mounting adaptor. Note that this installation does NOT require a flow switch--however it is very important that the cell be mounted vertically directly below the return jet in order to allow the gases produced in the cell to naturally dissipate in the pool.  Attach the cell to the union and then use the fittings supplied to attach the lower end of the cell to either the hose or rigid PVC pipe coming from the pools filtration system. Tighten all union nuts BY HAND for a watertight seal.

I purchased the Aqua Trol RJ and subsequently had to upgrade to the Aqua Trol HP. Melissa in customer service was so helpful and courteous. She had me send the RJ back and sold me the HP and shipped it the same day. I sent the RJ back and as soon as it was received I was credited back for the purchase price. I could not have asked for a smoother better transaction and for better advice on how to set up my system. I would highly recommend Pool and Spa Supply Store to anyone that needs pool supplies. You can buy with confidence with this company.

  • Best decision made for my above-ground pool!

    For years, our daughter tried to convince my hubby to convert to salt generator system for our above-ground pool. This year "I" made the decision and am thrilled with the results. The set-up was a bit more of a challenge since I knew nothing about the system and maintenance. BUT I was successful and my pool water was heaven. Anyone who came over & went in pool loved the "feel" of the water. And it was sparkling blue all summer. LOVE LOVE LOVE this system and NO over-powering fumes from the chlorine tabs to knock you on your butt!
    THANK YOU for a great system. I only wish it was easier to TALK to someone when I had questions. That would be a great improvement to novice people like me.

  • Like it a lot

    "At first I was about to return the whole thing and go back to Chlorine tabs.
    Startup is not as easy as following directions. Don't make the same mistakes I made. (will explain)
    I Have a 15' round pool and was tired of buying and adding Chlorine. Heard about the Aqua Trol and researched it and found it to be what I was looking for. Only in all my research no one told me about the initial salt addin"

  • Makes having a pool easy

    [...] a good price for this product!

  • Great Product

    Posted by melissa on 11th Oct 2013

    "I love the saltwater system and am very happy we purchased it. It is so nice not having to deal with stinky chlorine and burning eyes!

    The only thing I had an issue with was the various readouts - there is no ""key"" to the various numbers and I was very confused until a rep from the pool store explained it. "

  • Crystal clear water, great for skin!

    Posted by melissa on 11th Oct 2013

    Took about 30 minutes to set up. If you already have chemicals in the pool, we recommend putting less salt in to begin with, it's easier to add than take out. Follow directions on the back of the instructions to balance chemicals in water. Wasn't aware we needed more than just salt. Take a sample of your water to a pool store have them check balance, they will direct you from there! We love it,

  • Easy and it works

    Posted by melissa on 11th Oct 2013

    [...]Best price on-line or at brick and mortar. Cell had a small leak along one of the joints. I discovered this 10 minutes after it was all installed. I removed it for fear of it splitting completely and emptying my pool. I called Hayward direct. Had replacement cell at my front door [...] Amazing customer service from manufacturer. One question I had that was not answered in instructions was whi

    Water has been perfect since I installed it. NO dangerous chlorine tablets. I have small kids and hated storing those.
