Jandy's AquaPure sanitizes swimming pools.

AquaPure is a salt chlorine generating system used to sanitize your pool, using a closed-loop water-softening system. As with any electronic and mechanical systems, problems can occur. While some problems are technical enough that they require the attention of a qualified professional, others have a simple solution and you might be able to troubleshoot these yourself.

Low or No Chlorine

Step 1

Add chlorine stabilizer as required. Chlorine stabilizer content should be 50 to 75 PPM. For every 50 pounds of salt, 1.25 pounds of stabilizer should be added.

Step 2

Increase the system's daily operating time.

Step 3

Increase chlorine production by pressing the "chlorine production rate adjustment" button.

Step 4

Enable "boost" mode and run for 24 hours.

Step 5

Press the "test salinity" button. If salinity is low, more salt may need to be added.

Step 6

Clean the cell if it is dirty or clogged.
