This article is about the Zodiac range of salt chlorination products and it is assumed that you know what salt chlorination of a swimming pool is and you are aware of the benefits of salt chlorination. If this does not apply to you then have a read of our article on How Salt Chlorination Works and The Pros and Con of Salt Chlorination
Zodiac are a leading manufacturer of salt chlorination products and dosing systems and we stock four of their products, We will explain here what each of them and how they work together (or not).
The Zodiac EI
The Zodiac EI is a great product. It is an easy to install retro-fit salt chlorinator. It is the entry level, manual control, salt chlorinator and is the only unit most pool owners will need.
The Zodiac TRI
The Zodiac TRI can be retro-fitted but it involves alteration to the pipework whereas the EI does not. The TRI is very easy to install on a new build pool. The TRI purchased on its own works exactly the same way as the EI so if all you want is a basic salt chlorinator then get the EI. The advantage the TRI has over the EI is that you can add modules to the control panel to turn it in to an automatic controller. You can add a pH control unit that will automatically regulate the pH or the “pro” unit will automatically regulate the pH and Chlorine level in your pool.
The Zodiac pH Expert
The Zodiac pH Expert is a stand alone pH dosing unit that can be used on any swimming pool to regulate the pH. If you have an EI unit you could add this product to make sanitising and regulating the pH easy. You don’t have to have a salt chlorinator to use the Zodiac pH Expert
The Zodiac Chlor Expert.
The Zodiac Chlor Expert is also a stand alone dosing unit and is a bit of red herring in the context of salt chlorinators because you will not need this unit if you have a salt chlorinator. The Chlor Expert regulates the Chlorine level in your pool by injecting liquid chlorine when required. So a pool without a salt chlorinator could be fully automated by installing this unit as well as the pH Expert.
