Electrolytic chlorine generation is the easiest, most effective and convenient way to keep pool water sparkling clean. The IntelliChlor® Salt Chlorine Generator uses common table salt to produce all the chlorine your pool needs, right in your pool—safely, effectively and automatically. Same sanitation performance as manual chlorine addition without the drawbacks. No need to buy, transport and store expensive chlorine compounds. No more odor, stinging eyes and irritated skin. IC20 salt chlorinator, for up to 20,000 gallons.
I returned this after reading the manual and finding the warranty information that says I have to pay someone to come install this or it only has a 2 mo warranty. I honestly was looking forward to using this but this is a terrible manufacturer policy especially considering how much already paid just for the equipment. I installed all the other equipment on my pool, and this more basic by far.

Q: Is there an alternative to Pentair Intellichlor IC20 Electronic ChlorineGenerator?
Q: I have a underground pool size 14x28 what size IC 20 or IC 40 could I buy?
Q: I need the IC 20 cell only.What is the price?
Q: The home I bought had a new Intellichlor generator left with it but it is just the white part of the picture I see on line . Do I need to buy the other part that looks like amp box?
A: Yes, the Intellichlor cell in the plumbing does also need the power center that hangs on the wall in order to work. Give us a call if you want some other options to move forward with, we may be able to help offer some suggestions.
Q: How do I know if I need to replace the cell or the complete unit? I have a 10 year old 15 that worked beautifully until the end of last summer. I will replace with the 20. I have about a 10,,000 gal inground lap pool. All the lights would continually flash. I cleaned it again and it continued to do the same thing. Thank you for any help.
A: The IC15 power supply (looks like a black brick with a 110v power cord) can only power the IC15 cell. The IC20 and higher cells use a larger power supply (a large tan metal box). Give us a call when you have a minute and we can help make a recommendation for a complete system that can drop in place and give you the most bang for the buck: 866-766-5243 ext.1
The Pentair IntelliChlor controls are built-in to the electrolytic cell. It has LED indicator lights that display low or high measured salt levels, five sanitizer output power levels, and whether the cell requires checking or service. The controls also have a built-in mechanical flow switch that ensure sufficient water flow for chlorine generation. Under low water temperature conditions, the IntelliChlor control's automatic shut-off feature protects the unit and prolongs cell life. In addition to the cell's built-in controls, there is a metal power supply box that is included with the Pentair IntelliChlor which is meant to hang nearby on the wall, with a UL Listed internal transformer which supplies power to the cell through a 15' UL Listed cable. The power supply box gets connected to your pool equipment power source or timer.
The Pentair IntelliChlor electrolytic cell is an inline opaque-plastic housing which contains built-in titanium electrode plates, built-in electronic controls, built-in flow switch, and built-in power supply cord. The IntelliChlor salt cell has threaded connections on the inlet and outlet, which allows quick access for service or winter removal (if applicable). The threaded connections attach to 2" unions which are glued to the existing return-line PVC plumbing.
