 I have a Compu Pool salt water generator with a CPSC36 cell that is good for up to a 40,000 gallon pool.  My pool is 22K but I still need to add a pound of shock each week even with running the system at 100% 18 hours a day.  I use Calcium Hypochlorite shock but leave the salt water generator off for 8 hour when I do that.  I was told by my pool supply store that will ruin the cell due to scaling.  I asked if I clean the cell with muriatic acid would it return the cell to normal fucntioning and was told "No" that the cell would be damaged.  Looking for a second opinion as to how  Calcium Hypochite damages the cell.  Thanks

Hi Steven123,

I have never heard of Cal Hypo ruining your salt cell. Let me get with a few of the guys here to see what they have to say about that.

Thanks

I spoke with one of our technicians and he stated the following...

Patrick I don't think it will damage the cell but it will cause scale build up over time, which will mean that you will need to clean your cell more often.

Thank You
