The Hayward AquaTrol Electronic Chlorine Generator (also known as a salt chlorinator) is designed specifically for above ground pools up to 18,000 gallons. The AquaTrol has all the same functions and features of the Hayward Aqua Rite but with a lower chlorine output.
The Hayward AquaTrol 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 Hayward AquaTrol is designed with an outlet (timer controlled) for the filter pump to plug into, the AquaTrol 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 AquaTrol paying for itself in just a few short years. The Hayward AquaTrol system typically installs in less than 30 minutes and is very easy to operate.
