SOURCE: I opened my pool a couple of weeks ago and filled

A CL200 Involves direct injection of chlorine into the pool. Water passes through the chlorinator and goes to the pool with chlorinated. WIth the 200 (Not the 220) I've only seen a handful with problems over the years with chlorine not dissolving. If the chlorinator is not leaking, and the control valve is moving freely here's what I'd recommend.

1. Are you using a new type of tablet?
If so remove the tablets and place into a floating chlorinator.*** WARNING Wear Rubber Gloves, while handling wet tabs****
Dial it all the way open. If the tablets don't break down at this point with in a day or two, They were over compressed at the factory, potentially have to much filler (most slow tablets should be 95-99% cholroine) or the water is too cold ( below 70 deg. This should not be an issue in July) If this is the case switch brands.

If the chlorine is dissolving in the floater but not the chlorinator it could be one of the following.
1. Make sure the direction on the chlorinator is correct inlet (from Filter) to outlet (to pool)
2.. In some of the newer 200 chlorinators there is a built in check valve you can see it in the bottom of the chlorinator You will notice a threaded piece in the bottom that contains a white plastic ball the size of a pea. If this ball does not move freely to the touch, odds are the filler in your chlorine has clogged it from moving, thus preventing the flow of water from dissolving the chlorine.
You can check this by removing the chlorinator from the pool, removing the lid and pouring water directly into the top. If you do not see water passing through to the "Outlet" side of the chlorinator a clog is most likey your problem.
I've seen clogs cleared with wire coat hangers and hot water. Be forewarned that hot water being poured into a chlorinator will cause the any residual chlorine to gas off, make sure you do not have you face over the chlorinator when you add the hot water and you do so in a very well ventilated area. A straightened wire coat hanger can be used to dislodge any obstruction in the check valve and "get the ball rolling again"

Hope it helps.

SOURCE: Aqualink Chlorine Generator not producing any chlorine

It shounds like that you might have a mustard algae issue. It feeds on chlorine. It is possible that your unit is producing chlorine but the algae is consuming it as fast as it can be made. You will need to do a shock treatment and use an Algae 30. It could be something else, but this is likely. You can google mustard algate treatments and read up on it to see if you have other symptoms.

SOURCE: My Hayward CL200 chlorinator is eating up 3 inch tabs

This can be very trickey. I've been it the busniess for thirty years and changeing the valve out confused me and had me pulling my balding hairs out. then when I was done I thought what was all the hub bub about. If you go out and get areplacement valve it will come with some very confuseing directions. What all this boiles down to is there is a snap ring of sorts behind the dial that will get pulled out like a string on a laundry bag only it is made of plastic that has always lived with chloriene an will be brittle, so be careful. It will come out a very small slot at the bottom of and behind the dial.. If you break it it will be a real pain to get out and that is all the help I can give you on that. But once you do it once you will say what was all the hub bub about. You will want your neighbors to get one so you can show off. The gut on your valve is the Acilies Heal on this chlorinator and may be needed to be changed every year or two but other than that it is in my humble oponion the best erosion feeder for house hold use. Well good luck and get the new one before you start so you can see what I have been talking about and see the pictures I can't draw here.

My chlorinater will not drain and keeps overflowing


You will want to take a look at the tablets you just used. I have personally never seen Chlorine tablets that were not all white.
I would quit using that brand of tablet and go back to the all white chlorine tablets.
You may need to flush the chlorinator of the old tablets in order to get you system cleaned up and working normally.

My Hayward In Line Chlorinator has been great for 20years . I have replaced the cap about five years ago. It is leaking through the top & there is an awful lot of mineral build up inside the canister....


Nothing will remove the buildup because that is mostly the housing of the unit distorting over time with the chlorine inside. Puck quality has a bigger effect on water chemistry than the chlorinator itself though cheap imported pucks are likely to stain the inside of the chlorinator just like they often do to the pool. A new inline chlorinator is about $90 so I would assume it is better to buy a new one than to try and repair a worn out 20 year old one...just my opinion.

The cl100 should do the job. The first thing I would do is check the chemicals. Make sure you have enough stabilizer (cyanuric acid).If it's low your chlorine will not last long at all. Check the ph and alkalinity also. Make sure you are running the pump long enough. the cl100 only adds chlorine when it's running.
