Is it safe to swim with the Sun-Chlor in the pool?
Yes, it is safe to swim while the Sun-Chlor is in the pool. However, it is recommended that it be removed while swimming and not used as a floating device. We suggest to fill a bucket of water (5 gallon) from the pool, place in a safe sunny area. Place the Sun-Chlor on top to continue generating more chlorine. Return the water in the bucket and Sun-Chlor back into the pool when finished swimming.

What happens when it rains or there is a week of bad weather?
As with any chlorine generator device, it is recommended to shock the pool (test your pool water) especially after a lot of rain and bad weather.

Is it all right to have the Sun-Chlor in the pool when it rains?
Yes, the Sun-Chlor is a weather resistant system. However, heavy hail could be a damaging factor.

Is there a risk of an electrical shock from the Sun-Chlor?
No, the Sun-Chlor produces a low voltage, non-harmful DC power that will not cause or transmit an electrical shock.


Solar-Powered Salt Water Chlorinators



Will rain, water or dirt build-up on the solar affect output?
No, water on the solar panel will not affect output. However, it is recommended that the solar panel be kept clean, as a dirty panel affects the output.

What is the warranty on the Sun-Chlor?
The Sun-Chlor comes with a 5-year limited warranty. Details about this here.

How do I know how many gallons of water there is in my pool?

  • Rectangular Pool: Multiply L x W x average depth x 7.5
  • Circular Pool: Diameter x diameter x average depth x 5.9
  • Oval Pool: L x W x average depth x 6.7

What is the expected life-span of the solar panel and electrodes?
The expected life-span of the solar panel is approximately 20  years and the electrodes approximately 3-5 years.

What is the size and weight of the Sun-Chlor?
The size is 26 1/2 inches x 26 inches (67.5cm x 66cm) and weighs 14lbs (6.5kg).

Does any pool equipment have to be changed?
 No, there are no changes needed. Simply add salt and stabilizer to the swimming pool and run the pump overnight to circulate the salt and stabilizer. Then place the Sun-Chlor unit in the pool and it is ready to make chlorine.

Will cold weather affect the Sun-Chlor?
No. However, it is strongly recommended that the Sun-Chlor be removed when freezing conditions are expected.

What does the salt level have to be in a pool?
The ideal level of salt for the Sun-Chlor is 3500 to 4000 ppm.

What does the stabilizer level have to be in a pool?
The ideal level is 80 to 100 ppm.

Why does the pool need stabilizer?
The stabilizer function is to hold chlorine dissipating from ultra violet rays. Salt and stabilizer levels should be checked 3 to 4 times a year.

How does Sun-Chlor compare against other salt systems?
Sun-Chlor is about half the price of other systems. With energy costs, chemicals and installation factored into the equation, Sun-Chlor is by far a better choice..... year-after-year.
