JustChlor Standard (STD) chlorinator replacement electrode
With a standard chlorinator electrode, calcium deposits form on the surface of the negative electrode over time. If these deposits are not removed regularly, the calcium will bridge the gap between the positive and negative electrode and cause damage. For this reason, it is essential to check a standard electrode every two weeks and remove any calcium deposits.
Clean with weak solutions of pool acid.
QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
Hi how would you know if your electrodes for your salt chlorinator are not working?
The life expectancy of chlorinator electrodes or cell is about 3 to 5 years, so after that period the chances are good that its time to replace them as their capacity to produce chlorine reduces over time. The Power Pack or Power Supply box lasts normally much longer.
Always: - Clean and keep electrodes always clean using very weak acid solution or salt cell cleaner. Calcium buildup will damage electrodes or reduce its working life.
Indicators of a faulty electrode are:
- You do not see white gas or bubbles produced when the chlorinator cell is turn on
- The warning light to "add salt" goes on - The Free Chlorine Level in the pool is constantly low and even after you added HTH to raise the chlorine levels. In other words, the chlorinator do not produce enough chlorine gas to maintain the Free Chlorine Level between 1 to 3ppm.
- Test if the Salt Level is between 4000 and 5000ppm

Quick test if LOW SALT is the problem:
- Add a hand full of salt in the weir when the pump is running. If the "add salt" go off, then low salt levels are pro bably the only problem.
- Add 25kg for a 25000L pool every 6 months if your pool have a sandfilter to replace the salt going to "waste" during the backwash-and-rinse cycle. Click here for pool salt
