Why We Needed To Replace This La Jolla Saltwater Chlorine System
We were called out to this home in La Jolla, CA to inspect the existing saltwater chlorine system. The customer was noticing that his pools chlorine levels were not keeping up and the pool was starting to get algae. Once we looked at the age of the saltwater cell and the type of saltwater system that was installed we knew it was needing to be replaced. This AutoPilot saltwater chlorine system is not one of the best saltwater chlorine systems made. The product is inferior and their customer service is lacking. We discussed this with the La Jolla swimming pool owner and he was happy to replace the entire unit.
Based on this specific application, we recommended the Pentair IntelliChlor IC40 saltwater chlorine generator. The IC40 unit will produce plenty of chlorine for this La Jolla swimming pool and will allow the pool service technician to keep better care of the chlorine levels in this swimming pool.
La Jolla saltwater pool system is much better than the old AutoPilot saltwater system
The new Pentair IntelliChlor IC40 saltwater system allows for easier control of the chlorine production by having the controls right on the face of the salt cell. This will allow the pool service technician the ability to check on it each week during his visits and will allow him to make changes quickly. This system is also very easy to perform salt cell cleanings that are typically performed every three to four months. This is based on how the water chemistry is maintained and if the service company is adding a mineral and metal sequestering agent to the pool water periodically.
When maintained correctly, this Pentair IntelliChlor IC40 saltwater pool system should last many years. The salt cell itself should last at least three years as long as it is maintained. Whenever you are using a saltwater chlorine system, you should always include a mineral and metal sequestering agent as it will prevent calcium buildup to be minimized in the cell land prevent possible scaling of the pool’s surface. This swimming pool in La Jolla is the main focal point in the backyard and the homeowner wants to make sure his swimming pool is in perfect condition.
