How do I get my pool chlorinators ready for winter?

  • Test your pool water’s salt concentration using a reliable salt test kit
  • Adjust the salt levels to fall within the recommended range (usually around 3,000–4,000 ppm).
  • Remove the salt cell from the chlorinator unit. Inspect it for any visible signs of scaling or debris.
  • Clean the cell using a mild acid salt cell cleaning solution. Rinse thoroughly and ensure it’s dry before reinstallation.
  • Take a moment to inspect your cables and O-rings. Replace or grease them as needed, ensuring they stay in top-notch shape. 
  • Salt cells operate optimally in warmer water. If your pool water temperature drops significantly (below 15°C), consider adjusting chlorinator settings accordingly.
  • To keep temperature in check, consider using a pool cover or use a liquid blanket to keep the heat in your pool
  • Even during winter, your pool needs chlorine to keep it from turning green so don’t forget to run your chlorinator and pump periodically.
