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. IC40 salt chlorinator, for up to 40,000 gallons.

Q: For this price, does that include both the Cell and the Power Supply?
A: Yes, this is the complete Pentair IntelliChlor electronic chlorine generator system. It includes both the Cell and Power Supply.
Q: I have an ic 40 520555 and am showing no green or red lights when my system is turned on. Do i need to replace the generator or just the cell? both are going on their 3rd summer.
A: I would recommend checking the fuse underneath the power center. If that doesn't fix it, it could be a more serious electronics problem. But even if it's not the cell, I would give you a heads up that based on my experience, three years is fairly deep into that system's cell lifespan, just so you can make a better decision about what you want to do.
Q: what is warrentry for this ?
A: Pentair saltwater systems are warrantied for 60 days, unless a Pentair technician installs them and then they have a 2-year limited warranty
Q: Can this unit be wired to 220?
A: Yes, the Intellichlor can be wired for both 110V and 220V (which is standard - 220V is what most pool equipment uses).
Q: What cell version does the IC 40 have, thanks?
A: Other than US or Canada models, Pentair doesn't have different cell versions. This is part 520555, US version of the IntelliChlor IC40 replacement salt cell. If you still have a question about it, just give us a call at 866-766-5243 and we can help give you all your options.
Q: Can the unit be installed on a vertical pipe or does it have to be horizontal?
A: Yes, it can be oriented either way
Q: I have a Pentair IC40 Chlorine Generator. The lights aren't coming on and I'm thinking it is the fuse. What type of fuse do I need?
A: The intellichlor takes a 10A fuse.
Q: I have 2.5-inch piping. Will installing this 2-inch model restrict flow?
A: Piping is measured by the "inner diameter" of the pipe, and standard sizes would be 1.5", 2", and in rare circumstances 3".
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.
