Q: I have a RJ-45 Plus Salt Generator. I don't know what the winter mode button actually does and what it's usefulness is. The owners manual really doesn't describe it's function or why it should or should not be used.
A: It's simply a one-touch button to decrease your system's chlorine output. For example, this would be used if you have a spell of cold weather, a decrease in pool use, you cover the pool, etc... Otherwise, you would make gradual, incremental changes using the +/- output buttons as normal.
Q: What determins when your RJ+45 Series" goes into it's "REST Cycle"?
A: The chlorine output (power %) setting. The lower the power output, the less hard the system has to work to generate chlorine. The active / rest cycle is nothing that ever needs monitoring or consideration.
Q: What is the recommended GPM flow for the RJ45 system, Core35, and Core55 systems?
A: Salt chlorinators only need a minimum amount of flow in order to ensure that their cell stays filled with water during operation. Everyone's resulting flow rate is different depending on what model pump you have, and more importantly how much "total dynamic head" your setup has to resist flow.
Q: I see the electronics are different, but is the cell physically the same length at the Hayward, making the plumbing upgrade a piece of cake?
A: Correct, this system's cell can use your existing plumbing fittings. That makes it very quick install.
Q: Just received it, and so psyched to replace my 18 year old Aquarite, it looks great. Can I keep the old flow switch from that system that still works fine, or do I need to swap in the new one. Just looking for simplicity in the install. Thanks,
A: Basically, yes. You can just plug the old flow switch's "phone jack" connector into the new control module, or actually unscrew the old flow switch from the PVC fitting it's in and screw the new flow switch back into your plumbing.
Q: Is there a specific flow direction for the RJ-45 plus electric cell?
A: The cell will work facing either direction.
Q: Recommended set up on rj45 plus on 22000 gallon pool. Variable speed pump. Pump run time and percentage setting. Thanks
A: Every pool will have unique requirements based on your pool's chlorine demand and the amount of flow required in order to achieve enough circulation (turn-overs through your pool filter). The best approach is to make adjustments, measure the results, and then make further adjustments to the equipment if needed.
Q: What are the dimensions of the electronics box? Does it have a door that has to be swung open? I am concerned about clearances. I now have a Hayward box.
A: The controller is approximately 10" high, 6" wide, and 6" deep. The door swings open to the bottom. You may like the EDGE series - it has a very compact controller as well as an adapter kit that lets it easily replace your old salt system.
Q: Does the RJ45 refer to pool size (45,000 Ga's) or does the 45 represent the element output in grams per hour?
Q: What is the grams per hour output of the RJ45?
A: You'll see the specs on the product page indicate: "Power: 2.0 lbs/day"
