Swim Pro is Kentucky’s only authorized distributor for the Accu-Tab chlorination system. The leader is SAFER, SIMPLER and MORE ACCURATE. The custom manufactured, NSF listed systems combine calcium hypochlorite tablets, patented chlorinators, and engineered systems to provide a safer chlorination alternative to liquid chlorine.
An excellent alternative to liquid chlorine, the Accu-Tab system does not require special containment measures or elaborate safety equipment.
Accu-Tab three-inch tablets are easy to handle and store. The chlorinators contain no moving parts or small openings to clog, keeping operation simple and maintenance to a minimum.
More consistent than bleach, the Accu-Tab system automatically delivers the precise level of chlorine you need.
|Accu-Tab®||12% Chlorine Bleach||Chlorine Generator||Trichlor Tablets||Chlorine Gass||Peroxyacetic Acid||Chlorine Dioxide|
|Risk Management||Solid chemical - no dual containment required||Dual containment required for conectrated liquid solution||Salt Handling||Tablet odor is strong and pungent||Major gas leak concerns||Spill and leak concerns||Spill and leak concerns|
|Handling and convenience||Easy to add tablets in 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||Hard to maneuver cylinders require 2 people, special handling and training are needed||500-lb drums or totes are hard to maneuver; require large storage space and possible containment pad||Multiple precursor chemicals need to be purchased for CIO2 generation; large space required for generation equipment and chemical storage|
|Equipment and maintenance||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||Low maintenance||Eductors, regulators have small orifices that are prone to plugging||Troublesome metering pumps required||High capital and maintenance costs associated with complex generation equipment|
|Chlorine strength||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||Consistently 100% chlorine||Loss of strength makes control difficult||Delicate balance between precursor chemicals needed for efficient generation|
|Material compatibility||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||Low pH (~2.9) is highly corrosive; reduces life of equipment and surfaces||Low pH (~3.0), very corrosive||Low pH (~2.8), very corrosive||Low pH (2.8 - 3.5), very corrosive|
