Mineral Chlorinators

In recent years, there’s been a rise in manufacturers claiming to manufacture chlorinators dedicated to running on minerals and mineral blends. Most of the time, these manufacturers will also try and push their own brand of special mineral blends at over inflated prices. The truth is, there’s no such thing as a mineral chlorinator. In fact, every chlorinator on the market is capable of running minerals without any issues at all.

The EcoBlend® chlorinator is compatible with salt, magnesium or any commercially available mineral blend. There's no need to change settings or purchase a dedicated mineral chlorinator. As the name imples, the EcoBlend® chlorinator is an all-in-one salt and mineral chlorinator.


The benefits of magnesium are well documented. There’s strong evidence to suggest that magnesium is beneficial for skin, bones, and respiratory conditions, as well as general health and well-being.

Soft Water

Soft water

It’s hard to imagine that water can be either soft or hard. Water is water, right? Actually, when magnesium chloride is present in the pool, it gives the water a noticeably soft and silky feel. Anyone who has experienced the difference between soft and hard pool water will agree that magnesium or mineral pools are a delight to swim in.

Cell Protection

Did you know that the presence of magnesium chloride in the pool water helps to protect the chlorinator cell? It works by making the calcium deposits soft and mushy, making it easier to simply wash away during the reversing (cleaning) cycle.

The benefits of a chlorinator cell staying clean are:

  • Better chlorine production
  • A reduced need for manual cleaning of the cell
  • Less wear and tear on the electrdrodes and increased cell life
