How are Pool Ionizers Installed?
The 2" PVC cell or cells are glued into the pool circulation
system after the filter. The controller is mounted and
connected to the pump timer circuit so it has power only
when the circulation pump is running. Many of our customers
install their system themselves. Your local pool
dealer can install it for you if you prefer.
See the instructions on our How to Install page or in the
description of the model you are interested in. See
the Pool and spa Ionizer page for more information.
