Astral Hurlcon VX-9T Salt Chlorinator
30 Grams Per Hour
It is said that all life evolved from the sea and that salt water makes up 70% of our bodies, so it’s little wonder we find salt water the most natural medium to swim in.
It’s one reason why salt chlorinators are now the accepted standard for pool sanitising.
However, it’s not the only reason. With AstralPool’s VX Salt Chlorinator you also get a benchmark on control, convenience and reliability.
To be accurate, salt or minerals don’t sanitise the pool, chlorine does. Salt or minerals in the form of Magnesium Chloride, Potassium Chloride or Sodi- um Chloride, when dissolved into your pool water, is converted by the VX Salt Chlorinator into chlorine which sanitises your pool. The salts or minerals, in roughly the same solution as a tear drop, passes through the electrolytic plates in the VX chlorinator cell to form chlorine which kills all the contaminants within the pool and prevents bacteria and algae from forming. What a nice solution – particularly when some of these minerals and salts can be so good for the health of your family just by being in your pool water. The result is pure, crystal clear, soft feeling water and happy, healthy swimmers.
Manual dosing with liquid or granular chlorine can be haphazard. Over-dosing can cause eye irritation, itchy skin and a strong chlorine odour. The VX Salt Chlorinator continually generates chlorine at the level you require. Set and forget.
The easy to use touch pad enables complete control of your pump and sanitiser system. Although the VX is easy to use, it’s packed full of features making your swimming pool a pleasure to own and use. Chlorine output, Pool or Spa selection, filter cleaning, time of operation, and additional run times are all selected and the information is provided on the large liquid crystal display.
INTELLIGENT SELF CLEANING
During operation, the anode in the electrolytic cell attracts a build-up of calcium and other debris which requires periodic cleaning. Most chlorinators reverse the polarity to the cell, which in turn releases the residue of calcium and debris on the anode. The intelligent VX chlorinator analyses the output setting to optimise the polarity of the electrolytic cell. By minimising the number of reversals ensures the cell is clean and significantly extends the life of your chlorinator.
POOL OR SPA
When isolating your spa from the swimming pool, demand for sanitiser is greatly reduced. It’s simple really, while spa water is warm and requires sanitiser to kill and prevent the growth of bacteria and algae, it’s comparatively small volume means it only needs a fraction of the sanitiser that your pool requires. One touch of the “Spa” button on the VX chlorinator and your sanitiser output is automatically reduced to suit the demands of your spa. Why is this important? Excessive sanitiser is unpleasant, causing itching skin, bleached swimwear and damaging heaters, pumps and interior finishes in your spa or pool. Just another way the VX looks after your family.
Sand filters require regular backwashing to release the entrapped dirt and debris. The VX Chlorinator has a very smart button that operates the pump for one, two or three minutes, ensuring your filter is back washed for the correct period and turns off.
the electrolytic cell, preventing excessive build up of sanitiser and by-products during the backwash process. This feature also ensures that the pump cannot accidently be left running and empty the pool, requiring expensive top-up water.
Hold the pool button down continuously for 2 seconds and your VX chlorinator will automatically extend its operating hours to allow for additional filtration and sanitation during hot weather and heavy bather load periods. At an automatically determined time, the VX will then revert to normal time clock operating hours saving you the inconvenience of manually changing operating modes.
BUILT FOR AUSTRALIA
Australia has some of the most extreme weather conditions in the world for pool equipment. unlike many parts of the world, our larger blocks of land allow pool equipment to be installed outside, ex- posed to the elements, extreme heat, torrential rain and infestation by small insects and animals. So the VX has been designed with IP X5 weather protection, fine mesh screens and a long life cool- ing fan to help seal and cool critical electronic components. even the LCD display is specially constructed to withstand high temperature and UV radiation in the harsh Australian environment.
The VX Chlorinator is ideally matched for use with AstralPool’s unique Acqua Therepé minerals. Ac- qua Therepé replaces conventional pool salt with a blend of minerals that soften water, inhibit scale formation and staining and may provide health benefits to the skin, eyes, cardiovascular and nervous systems.
The VX can be integrated with the AstralPool Viron Connect Pool and Spa Automation System. You’ve heard of home automation? When installed with the (optional) Viron Connect you gain total control of all your pool equipment, VX chlorinator, heater, spa jets, waterfalls and pool lighting from inside your home. Program your favourite setting into the Viron Connect to make pool and spa ownership easy and pleasurable for the whole family.
The VX series salt chlorinators are available in 5 different sizes with and without time clocks. each chlorinator is covered by a 5-year warranty on the cell and 5-year pro rata on the power pack.
