The Pentair iChlor-30 salt cell is the factory original replacement cell model designed to easily drop in place and allow you to replace your old iChlor-30 cell in minutes. The iChlor (or i-chlor) cell is the replacement for the latest salt chlorinator models from Pentair. The iChlor-30 replacement salt cell comes with integrated controls (requires existing Ichlor30 power center). The iChlor-30 replacement cell is made to meet or exceed original factory specs and has 100% guaranteed compatibility.

Replacing the iChlor-30 cell will allow your salt chlorine generator to begin chlorinating again if your old iChlor-30 salt cell has been depleted. The iChlor-30 cell sanitizes your swimming pool in an eco-friendly and cost-efficient way, and also helps provide a luxurious swimming experience without the eye irritation and dry skin.

Pentair "Trade Grade" models are restricted by the manufacturer so that pricing or direct purchase is not available online.


When replacing your iChlor-30 salt cell, take this opportunity to make sure it is sized correctly. Sizing your salt cell properly is key to making sure you will not need to supplement with additional chlorine or shock your pool, and also extends the lifespan of your cell. The industry recommends using a salt cell with a max capacity of 1.5-2 times the actual size of your pool (more is better). The iChlor-30 is manufacturer rated for a maximum capacity of 30,000 gallons.


The iChlor30 replacement cell is only compatible with the Pentair iChlor30 power supply. This replacement salt cell for the iChlor30 is 100% compatible with original systems (no software/firmware issues). The iChlor30 cell has the same length, threading, and cable connection for direct replacement.

To get the most life out of your salt cell and to keep your pool running without unexpected interruptions, make sure it is sized correctly, maintain correct water balance, and be sure and inspect your cell at least every 3 months for leaks, debris, and calcium scale. Be sure to follow instructions in the product manual and clean the cell as often as the system indicates.
