If you own a salt water system for your pool, you probably have a turbo cell. You must have a salt cell of some type. This is the very thing that makes a difference between a pool that is chlorinated using salt water and a pool that is chlorinated with chemicals.
A turbo cell is the device that turns salt into chlorine. This natural process allows you to use salt to keep your pool clean and free of chemicals. In fact, you won’t even notice the smell of chlorine like you would in a conventionally cleaned pool. Salt water goes in and chlorine comes out with it.
As far as maintenance goes, the turbo cell requires very little maintenance. It may need to be cleaned as mineral deposits build up, but since you are saving time and money by avoiding the costs of conventional pool maintenance, this really isn’t a problem.
Pools that use salt water to chlorinate pools will include a turbo cell, or salt cell. Different companies call them by different names, but they perform the same function and require the same type of maintenance.
The main concern when it comes to a turbo cell is mineral deposits. Mineral deposits can build up on the cell itself and prevent it from doing what it is made to do. They can also cause damage to the o-rings that are on either side of the cell. That’s why it is important to keep up the maintenance of your pool and salt cell at all times.
Cleaning is the name of the game when it comes to turbo cell maintenance. Make sure to periodically clean not only the turbo cell, but the o-rings and the area underneath the o-rings. This will remove the mineral deposits so that you don’t end up having to replace any of the o-rings or the cell itself.
Does your pool operate a saltwater system? If so, a Turbo Cell will play an important role in keeping your pool water pristine. Do away with liquid chemicals and their accompanying strong odors; your Turbo Cell will produce all the chlorine your pool needs, through the simple process of splitting salt. You’ll no longer have to measure or monitor, as it’s automated with your cell.
Your New Turbo Cell
If you’ve noticed a steady decline in your pool’s chlorine levels, the “inspect cell” label is visible, or the warning light has come on, it’s probably time to replace your unit. All cells sold via Pool Guy Supply are available with a three-year guarantee.
Keeping Your Turbo Cell Dirt-Free
Over time dirt and corrosion may build up on the unit itself. To minimize this, turn off the system and release its bindings. Soak both ends for several minutes in a little muriatic acid mixed with water. Questions? Don’t hesitate to contact a member of the Pool Guy Supply team at (949) 371-6063.
The turbo cell is a salt-cell replacement for pools and spas, designed to automatically generate chlorine. The system sanitizes your pool automatically by converting salt into chlorine, which then kills any bacteria or algae that has found its way into your water.
Turbo cell purification
The cell can handle the purification needs of pools up to 40,000 gallons. Factors affecting the amount of chlorine you need include rainfall, air and water temperature, the overall cleanliness of the pool and the amount of sun it’s exposed to.
Installing a turbo cell
Installing a turbo cell is easy. Firstly, turn off power to the filter pump and chlorinator system. Remove the old cell from its position in the plumbing by loosening the unions and unplug the cell cable.
Check your o-rings. If they are damaged or worn they should be replaced before the new cell is installed. Get the cell into the right position in your plumbing system and tighten the two unions for a watertight seal. This should be done by hand to avoid damage.
Plug everything back in and you’re away.
Without a properly functioning turbo cell, maintaining the health of your pool’s salt water is an impossible feat.
The long-life, high performance electrodes that make up turbo cells are responsible for producing sufficient chlorine to keep your pool free of muck and debris.
Due to the clear outer shell that encases your turbo cell plates, it’s easy to check the condition of the unit, establishing whether it requires cleaning or replacing due to damage.

You should inspect your cell every three months to keep it working properly. Cleaning is a fairly simple process. Once you’ve removed the cell (after making sure the power is off!), you can then inspect it to see if there are any deposits on the contacts.
A bucket with one part acid and five parts water can then be used to clean it. Simply leave each end of the cell submerged in the water for five minutes. It is also a good idea to use a Pool Guy Supply Cleaning Stand.

Why is the Turbo Cell Important?
The cell plays a crucial role in your chlorination system. Turbo cells allow chlorine to be extracted from salt in the water via electrolysis. This chlorine is then released into the water to kill off any nasty bugs, and keep your pool clean and healthy.
Your Turbo cell is a crucial part of your salt sanitization system, because it converts simple salt into chlorine. Therefore, if you see a warning indicator which reads ‘inspect cell’, it’s likely that your unit needs cleaning or replacing.
Cleaning your Turbo cells is easy. Turn off the filter system, remove it from its mounting, and soak it in a bucket of water containing a little muriatic acid. Wash with clean water and return to its original location. If your unit is back to operating normally, then you’ve solved the problem.

The turbo cell
The turbo cell is an integral part of your system that needs to be functioning correctly at all times. This is the device that generates the chlorine for your pool from the salt.
Maintaining the turbo cell system
Ensure that the salt level of your pool is maintained at the appropriate level. Warning lights should alert you if it’s too low or high. We also recommend manually testing the salinity of the water, for the control panel will often display faulty readings in the event that the turbo cell needs to be cleaned or replaced.
As calcium is likely to build up on the cell as part of the salt chlorination process, you’ll need to clean the cell.
After removing the turbo cell, you can clean it by mixing a bucket of four parts water and one part acid. You should then seal one end of the cell using a cleaning stand before pouring the water and acid into the cell.
Leave it to clean for a few minutes before carefully disposing of the water and replacing the sparkling cell back into your system.
