These Accu-Tab chlorinators are a few of the many models designed for use in irrigation applications.
Refer to the charts below for model specifications.
The complete, NSF-certified Accu-Tab® system combines specially-engineered chlorine feeders with quality controlled three-inch calcium hypochlorite (cal hypo) tablets. Accu-Tab chlorinators are solidly built. Each durable, corrosion-resistant chlorinator is handcrafted in the U.S. using high-quality PVC. Accu-Tab chlorinators—which use only Accu-Tab three-inch tablets—have have few moving parts, use no proprietary parts and have no small openings that can clog.
Accu-Tab systems can be installed as a gravity return system—where the chlorinator is located at an elevation higher than the point the chlorinated solution is returned to the main water stream—or, as a pressure return system—utilizing a centrifugal pump to re-inject the chlorinated solution back into the main water line.
A gravity return system can be specified when the chlorine effluent is to be returned to the main water stream in an open tank, channel, or filter and when the chlorinator can be physically located at an elevation higher than the re-injection point. The system routes a sidestream of the main water flow through a simple rotameter and valve used to adjust the flow of the chlorinator. The water contacts only the tablets at the bottom of the feeder, so tablets at the top stay dry while those contacting the water erode at a predictable rate according to the amount of water that enters the chlorinator. Highly accurate chlorine dosage is achieved simply by controlling the water flow rate.
Because nothing moves but the water, the PowerPro® gravity return system represents the ultimate in reliability with negligible capital costs. The non-pressurized system also eliminates the potential of chlorinated solution spraying out of a corroded or broken pipe.
A pressure return system is required when the chlorinator effluent must be directed to multiple locations or when the chlorinated stream is to be re-injected to a pressurized tank or line. Our PowerPro® pressure return system removes a sidestream of the main water flow and introduces a portion of it into the chlorinator, where Accu-Tab tablets are eroded at a controlled rate. A centrifugal pump re-injects the resulting chlorinated solution back into the main water line. This sidestream loop is nearly identical to the familiar chlorine gas injection system but without the danger and the hassle.
Each PowerPro pressure return system comes complete with valves, piping, pumps, surge tanks, and the electronic controls necessary to dose the desired amount of chlorine into the main water system. Systems are also available with multiple chlorinators, automatic controllers, and SCADA compatibility.

Accu-Tab® calcium hypochlorite tablets from are designed specifically and only for use in Accu-Tab chlorinators. The use of any calcium hypochlorite tablet with any other chemicals can result in serious safety hazards. Failure to comply could cause malfunction and will void the warranty as well as NSF certification. The mixing of incompatible chemicals, including other pool cleaning chemicals, may generate heat, release hazardous gases and potentially cause a violent reaction leading to fire or explosion. In addition, tablets from different labeled buckets should never be mixed. Operators of any Accu-Tab system should thoroughly read and understand label directions that accompany the chlorinator and tablets before operating the system.
