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.

The control box does all the monitoring for you so at a glance you know if the system is ok or not and if not, it indicates whats needed. I am so pleased not to be putting in clorine this year and the pool water is so much more healthier for your skin. This should be sold as an enviromental improvement. Great Product I recomend it to anyone looking into a salt water pool.

    We have no complaints, easy to install, directions very easy to follow, our above ground Splash Pool has never been clearer, my 9 year old grandsons eyes never burned, I wear contacts and didn't have any issues getting water in my eyes, in a few months it will have paid for itself with the money we saved on chemicals. Thank you, thank you for a wonderful product.

    I have 5 kids, all Blonde. They pretty much live in the pool in the summer. Chlorine will turn thier hair green. When I had our current pool installed, a 24' round with a bottom drain, I had this unit installed. It's been 4yrs and not one regret. I run my pump year round and my water is crystal clear.

    I put the salt in 24 hrs prior and installed in 30 minutes as stated. It started working perfectly! My only concern was there are no directions on how to use the timer or the diagnostic button. I had to download the owner's manual online.[...]

  • Best thing since sliced bread!

    Purchased this a year ago from this supplier. Very good product! Was able to maintain a consistent level of chlorine finally on my 24' above ground pool after 15 years of pucks & liquid chlorine/bleach. No more wild swings of free chlorine & no more algae problems. Do check your salt level before adding initial salt, as mine was 800 already. You will overshoot on salt level otherwise. Depending on

    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.

  • Crystal clear water, great for skin!

    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,
