ELIZABETH, NJ (February 24, 2012) — Pool owners, who may have thought salt chlorination wasn’t affordable in the past, now have a very obtainable DIY option in Hayward® Pool Products’ new Salt & Swim™. The DYI salt chlorinator is the most cost-effective way for pool owners to move up to a salt chlorinated pool and experience softer, silkier water.

According to Hayward Worldwide Product Manager, Sanitization and Chemical Automation, Ray Denkewicz, “Pool owners have told us they would love to have a salt chlorinated pool, but they want it more affordable. Salt & Swim is the affordable solution they’ve been looking for. There are more than 4 million US pools out there still being sanitized manually with liquid or tablet chlorine. We’d like to give those pool owners some of their precious leisure time back. Salt & Swim is ideal for DIYers whose families’ pools get a lot of use, and who spend too much time managing their water chemistry. The swimming experience is amazing and it also eliminates burning red eyes, dry itchy skin and chlorine odor.”

Salt & Swim can be installed in four easy steps in as little as 20 minutes with no gluing required.

The product is available in two options: a 6-month version for shorter swimming seasons and a 12-month version for pools that are open year-round. Both come with a Salt & Swim control unit and Salt Cell that automatically generates chlorine from salt. Salt Cell replacements are comparable to a season’s worth of chlorine.

“There’s a lot of buzz around this product, and for good reason,” Denkewicz said. “Salt & Swim really makes salt chlorination an affordable reality for those pool owners who felt it was just not within their reach.”

Product features include:

  • DIY installation with no gluing required
  • Replaceable salt cell that is priced comparable to the annual cost of chlorine
  • For in-ground pools only up to 25,000 gallons
  • Easy to interpret LED control panel
  • Online DIY Assistant™
  • Universal connectors for 1.5” and 2” plumbing
  • Super chlorination feature
  • 2 year limited warranty (control box)
  • Plugs into 120 V, GFCI outlet
