Aquasal (AQ) Saltwater Chlorine Generator for Swim Spas

  • The AQ saltwater chlorine generator uses electrolysis in the presence of dissolved salt (NaCl) to produce Chlorine (hypochlorous acid (HClO)) and sodium hypochlorite (NaClO), which are the sanitizing agents commonly used in most spas, swim spas, and swimming pools.

Enjoy the benefits of the AQ in your swim spa

  • Set and Forget - Automatic daily dosing

Once the AQ is installed, it works without the need for you to interact with the unit at all. This makes it great for holiday homes as you can leave the spa for months and come back to find your water is crystal clear!

  • Produces natural Chlorine

The AQ produces natural chlorine which differs from that purchased in bottles that normally contain buffers and stabilisers which affect water quality and can cause skin and eye irritation.

  • Save money on chemicals*

No need to buy bottled chlorine as the AQ creates natural chlorine automatically. 

  • Peace of Mind

You will have peace of mind that the family is bathing in the cleanest possible spa water. 

Soothing Salt Water

Saltwater has been used for 1000's of years because of its soothing quality and its natural effect in making skin feel softer and cleaner. Saltwater itself feels softer and gives a luxurious feel when you're soaking in it.


  • Gentle on Body and Clothing

Saltwater spas are gentler on your body and your clothing than chlorinated spas. Most people complain of irritated eyes when using bottled chlorine, which is not the case with the AQ.

  • No harmful Chlorine storage

No need to keep bottled chlorine at home which is dangerous if consumed and is a fire hazard.

  • No harsh Chlorine Smell

The Natural chlorine produced by AQ has no smell or taste.

  • The AQ System requires less salt than other systems

Traditional saltwater systems require 4000 ppm of salt to create chlorine, at this level you can damage your spa, The AQ requires less than 2000 ppm of salt which is less salt than in your tears. You won't even realize you have salt in your spa!

  • Chlorine Detection

The AQ is the only salt chlorinator that will test for chlorine every day and if chlorine is present in the water then the day's cycle will be skipped, this will ensure that your spa will never be over chlorinated, even if you haven't used your spa in a month.

What Aquasal customers say

I must admit, I was skeptical at first but the AQ has lived up to its promise of clean hassle free water! I can't thank you enough, my wife and I use the spa nearly everyday and I don't have to worry about anything! Thanks to David and his team for his quick response to any question or concern I had. Much appreciated... 

- Andrew Henderson, Sydney, Australia


"We have had a Vortex Aqualsal swim spa for six years now . If we have had a problem the company couldn’t help us enough. On any issue they patiently worked through the resolution with us. I must admit since we changed the swim spa to a salt chlorinater system the water has been amazing. We use hardly any chemicals the pool is so clean and it has been a godsend on my skin"

- Debbie, NSW.


"Just a quick thank you and the team for the aquasal salt water system. Now had it over 12 months. Has saved me a lot of time and labour, looking after our pool spa. Recommended to anyone purchasing a spa. Please feel free to give them my name and number, for furture reference..."

- Greg, NSW


"We are very happy with the Aquasal system and support. It saves us the time and effort of testing and adding chemicals to our swim spa every day. Also, as I have psoriasis it has been a lot more beneficial and soothing on my skin than chlorine - highly recommended."

- John, NSW

AQ Saltwater Chlorine Generator FAQ


How long does it usually take to install?

Installation of the AQ Saltwater Chlorine Generator usually takes about 1-2 hours.


Will I only need a spa technician or an electrician as well?

The AQ draws its power from the SpaNet controller (if present). As long as you have a spare power outlet available on your SpaNet controller, you will only need a spa technician. If you have both a heat pump and stereo installed drawing power from your controller, then you will need an electrician to install a protected electrical power outlet near your spa.


How long will my spa be down for when installing?

Once the unit is installed, you will need to add salt to your water in the range of 1,500 - 2,000ppm. It may take a few hours for the salt to dissolve and be detected by the AQ unit. The salt will dissolve more quickly in warmer water than in colder water. Allow for 1-2 days after installation of the unit and adding salt for the system to start sanitising your water.


Can I use the AQ on a regular spa / portable spa?

No, the AQ system is recommended only for swim spas with a water capacity of over 5000L.


Will I still need to balance my water?

Yes, you will still need to balance and maintain your water periodically.


Will water balancing products work with the AQ system?

Yes, all other water balancing products will work as usual. 


How do I test to ensure I have the salt level correct?

The AQ system comes with a digital salt tester which you can use to test the salt levels and adjust as needed.


Do I need to empty my water to change to the AQ system?

If you are changing from a standard Chlorine sanitiser, there is no need to empty your water. If you are changing from Hydrogen Peroxide or another type of sanitiser, then yes, you will need to empty your spa and start with fresh water.


Where do I get salt from?

You can purchase regular pool salt from Bunnings or most pool supply stores. Follow the instructions in the product manual for the initial setup.


How much salt do I need?

For a swim spa of 5,000L, to reach an ideal salt level of 1,800 PPM, you should add approximately 9kg of salt.

For a swim spa of 10,000L, to reach an ideal salt level of 1,800 PPM, you should add approximately 18kg of salt

Add a smaller amount first and test - you can always add more if needed!
