The SGS Breeze 540 salt water chlorinator is proudly U.S. made and has been designed for ease of use, low maintenance, reliability and lifespan. This unit can handle up to 40,000 gallons water capacity and will deliver clear, sparkling soft-feeling water all year round. The 40,000 gallon water capacity is a very respectable large size pool.
The Breeze 540 has been developed as a low maintenance system and features a self-cleaning function. The unit will reverse polarity to the cells every 6 hours of operation which will reduce calcium build up on the plates. In addition, the plates are have been suitably spaced to allow easy manual cleaning. The unit is shipped with a wooden cleaning tool (made out of wood to prevent accidental damage to the plates) specially designed for the job.
Both the reversing of polarity and manual cleaning features mean that cleaning the cell plates in an acid solution is not necessary which greatly enhances and increases the life span of the cell unit. Not having to use an acid cleaning solution also makes it safer for the owner.
The cell is housed in a clear plastic housing which gives great visibility of the cell plates allowing inspection of the cell at anytime. In seconds you can determine if there is any kind of build on the plates indicating if it needs a manual clean.
Boasting a huge 5 year (limited) warranty if installed by a suitable pool technician, this commercial grade unit is set to provide years of trouble free operation and impressive water quality.
The control unit itself is a simplistic unit, again designed for ease of use. It is not overwhelmed with an array of dials and buttons and unnecessary features and has been designed for the home owner meaning that there is no expectation that the owner is a chemist. The only options are to adjust the chlorine output levels. Clear and simple LED indicators give you a quick indication of current operating status.
This SGS Breeze 540 system is one of the easiest to operate and easiest to install units available on the market. It will deliver consistently chlorinated water and prevent over or under chlorination.
The unit is energy efficient and has been designed to tolerate varying levels and types of salt concentration in the water which extends the life of the cell. This is important because at times salt levels in the water may change due to heavy rainfalls and water evaporation. The quality of salt can change as well depending on where the salt is purchased from and the brand of salt purchased.
Although a little bit more expensive than some other salt water chlorinators, the extra investment is well worth it as this unit will last considerably longer (providing that the unit is operating under normal operating conditions) than it's cheaper counterparts. The SGS Breeze 540 is of high United States quality of manufacturing and is well worth considering purchasing.
