If you have swam in a pool with a salt system, you will know that the water feels silky smooth and soft on the skin. This technology is now available for hot tub users in two formats.:Bromine or Chlorine Salt Generators
If you are tired of the bad smells, dry skin, cloudy water, scum lines or harsh chemicals in your hot tub, you may want to consider the use of one of these Salt systems.
Benefits of Salt Systems

- Easily adjusted sanitizer level
- Easy to use
- Saves on water changes. 1-2 times a year vs 3-4 times
Through a process called electrolysis, The technology passed a very low current through special metal plates that electrically charges and converts the added salts: Sodium Bromide NaBr (pure bromine) to make pure active bromine or Sodium Chloride NaCl (pure table salt) to make pure active chlorine but without the additives or binders you will find in tablets or other forms of sanitizers. The generator separates the Bromine or Chlorine from the Sodium and produces pure bromine or chlorine which is absorbed into the water as a sanitizing agent. The unused bromine or chlorine combines with the free sodium converting back into natural salt minimizing the need to add more salt to your spa or hot tub. Monthly shocking is still recommended with non Chlorine, MPS.
We offer two systems:
The an IL (In Line) unit. This unit only produces Sodium Bromide. The graphite probe of the system is connected directly to your ozone line inside the cabinet. The control unit is mounted on the front of the cabinet. This design is more difficult to stall.
The other is a DO (Drape Over) design. This unit makes either Sodium Bromide or Sodium Chloride. Part of the unit is sitting on the cabinet and the other part drapes over the tub into the water. The control unit is mounted to the front face of the cabinet. The probe is placed in the filter compartment or just in the water. Easier installation.
