Accu-Tab Chlorination System

Treating Water Made Simple and Effective

The Accu-Tab® system offers an effective and state-of-the-art approach to treating water. The system minimizes the safety concerns typically associated with other water treatment solutions because it reduces the risk of leaks and spills. Consult the Safety Data Sheet (SDS) for the appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to be used.

In addition, the Accu-Tab system performs more predictably than other cal hypo systems because of the proprietary way in which the tablets are blended and the precise pressure under which they are compressed. Combined with the high water flow/low chlorine concentration delivery technology, this is what makes the entire system accurately perform.


Accu-Tab® System 12% Liquid Chlorine Chlorine Generator Trichlor Tablets Chlorine Gas
Solid chemical-no dual containment required Dual containment required for concentrated liquid solution Salt Handling Tablet odor is strong and pungent Gas leak concerns
Easy to add tablets from 55-lb pails; only one person needed Cumbersome to handle and maneuver; 55-gallon drums weigh 555 pounds Large quantities of salt required Package sizes range from 7-lb to 100-lb pails Mandatory and hard to maneuver cylinders require two people, special handling and training are needed
Chlorinators typically require cleaning and maintenance once per year Feed pumps need constant repair and tubing leaks regularly. Gas locking of pump is not uncommon. Must replace costly cells every two to four years and need highly trained professionals Low maintenance Eductors, regulators have small orifices that are prone to plugging
Consistent strength allows for reliable control; minimal strength degradation when stored properly Unstable liquid is difficult to control; rapid strength degradation especially in hot weather Must maintain ~ 3,000–9,000 ppm salt concentration in the pool; salt is converted to chlorine as it passes through the cells 90% available chlorine; frequent monitoring of pH and calcium needed to maintain proper water balance 100% chlorine
Relatively dilute 100-300 ppm hypochlorite solution; more neutral pH (~10.5); less corrosive Concentrated (120,000 ppm) hypochlorite solution, high pH (~13.0) is very corrosive Stray voltage from generator cells can cause corrosion Very low pH (~2.9) is highly corrosive; reduces life of equipment and surfaces Very low pH (~3.0), very corrosive
