Better than expected
Easy installation and works better than expected. I started with new water with no chlorine and the next day my chlorine was a bit high and I had to back off the setting. It is working very good.

Questions From Customers

Q: Does the CircuPool Core 15 & Core 35 need to be connected to a 120v outlet or can it be connected to a Jandy Aqualink at the outside control box. I have a 22000 gallon in ground pool and I believe I would need the Core 35.

Asked by: Joe Blum - 3/17/2020
A: Good questions. The CORE comes prewired with a plug that lets it connect to an outlet, but the manual has instructions that give alternative wirings. You can remove the plug and hook it directly up to a relay, timer, or other circuit. The CORE can automatically handle either 240V or 120V, so you don't have to do anything to the unit to convert it's voltage.

I’ve watched all the videos and read everything there is....I can’t seem to locate a spot in our pipes to install it. Is there anybody who could maybe look at pictures or video call to help? Thanks

Q: How long does a cell last?

Asked by: steve - 4/8/2020
A: The answer for that is ultimately unique to everyone, depending on usage and environment. However, when sized right and maintained well a cell can outlast the warranty period.

Q: What is the diameter of the pipe? Is there a way to connect this product to a 3 inch system? Thanks

Asked by: Gene - 4/12/2020
A: It has fittings for standard 2" ID PVC pipe. This is what a typical pool uses, and all salt chlorinators will come with fittings to match. If you truly do have something larger, you'd want to adapt it.

Q: I have a a Hayward cl200 in-line chlorinator. Wondering if id get lucky and this would fit into the fittings that my current chlorinator uses? I’m guessing not, but worth asking.

Asked by: Cberr - 6/22/2020
A: While the CORE model is very compact like your tablet dispenser, it doesn't use the exact same fittings as what you currently have plumbed in.

Q: Can I use the same tank with the sand in it?

Asked by: Patrick Kass - 10/16/2020
A: If you have a sand filter, yes you'll keep it and add this in addition. The filter removes debris from the water, this salt chlorinator sanitizer the water so you don't have to buy chlorine.

Answer provided by: Steve (12/7/2023)

Q: My pool is in ground about 28,000 gallons. Is is better to stay with the 35 or is bigger better? My thoughts are, if you go bigger, say the 55, then your putting less demand on the unit and the cell for desired chlorine output and it would in turn last longer and be more cost effective. Does this sound logical?

Asked by: Cberr - 6/22/2020
A: Yes absolutely, bigger capacity typically means a better value and a better experience. You can see more detail here:

Q: I have A Nano that died after 4 yrs I want to change to the CircuPool core 35, will I have to change the plumbing?

Asked by: Christi Dasher - 9/25/2020
A: Yes, unfortunately nothing else uses the exact same plumbing as your Nano, so you'll want to cut out your current system and plumb the CORE35 in it's place.
