Q: Can this replace a Jandy Aquapure 1400 with automation (Jandy AquaLink)?
A: This would give you much more power and much more control. The system works automatically with your pump using its flow switch - that means it activates and deactivates in sync with whenever your pump is schedule to be operating without any extra effort on your part. Only your old Jandy is going to send data to your automation, which is hardly necessary. In other words, the only intervention a salt system needs is just the occasional check and see if an indicator light is on and to check its setting. Let us know if you have more questions.
Q: I just installed an RJ60+ in place of my Aquapure 1400. I was just wondering- on the unit, there is a “remote” indicator. What is this for? Are there ways to adjust the unit remotely, perhaps interfacing it with the Jandy system? Thanks.
A: That is not a currently available feature that is advertised. It may be possible in a future release.
Q: Hello. I have an RJ-60+ which is rated at 300W, so presumably it only draws 1.36A at 220V. However, the manual also mentions the cell current ranging between 2.5 and 7.8 amps. I can also see the cell current displayed when I cycle through the menu options. For example, at 50%, it shows 5.7 amps. I'm assuming this cell current is different from the load on the circuit breaker. Can you confirm please?
A: Right, you are thinking in the right direction. You are comparing the "input load" vs the "output load". The higher amps you are seeing on the unit's screen represent the low voltage flow of electricity from the Control Module to the Cell, not the draw at your power source.
Q: Will the system say when it’s time to change the cell?
A: On a salt chlorinator, you typically know the cell needs replacement when the service light comes on even though the salt level in the water is good and the cell has been thoroughly cleaned like normal.
Q: Is there a place where i can get actual dimensions? Like a shop drawing. Ive already managed to rule out the CORE55 from rough dimensions given to another. I suspect this model will be a much more close call on fitting.
A: The product manuals on the product page's description will give you dimensional info in the chapter about plumbing. Or simply call tech support at 888-206-9938 ext:2
Q: max amperage draw at 220v
A: These don't use much power. At 220v, these systems use roughly 1-2 amps.
Q: Does this generator cell plug up with calcite quicker/more readily than the CORE? We have very hard water and very high temperatures,
A: The rate of mineral scale build up is dependent on what is called the “Langelier Saturation Index” or LSI on your pool water chemistry report, which prevents excessive scaling; for most people regardless of model the cell should need to be cleaned every 4-8 weeks on average. More frequent scaling indicates a high LSI, and balancing that reduces the rate of scaling.
Q: Hello, I have just purchased the RJ-30 Plus Salt system, and wanted to know it's power usage in Watts and Amps. Also, is it more efficient to connect it to 220v vs. 120v, and if so, how much more efficient? Whats the amperage & wattage for 220v vs. 120v connections? Thank you!
A: This model is rated for 180W (240V/0.75A or 120V/1.5A)
Q: What is the minimum required flow (in GPM) for the RJ60+ Flow Switch to close and enable the Salt Cell to generate Chlorine?
A: Most salt chlorinators typically need a small amount of flow in the 20-30 gpm range, but there are also other factors in you pool equipment set up that it depends on.
Q: I just purchased RJ60+ System. Is there a maximum flow limit that I shall not exceed for the Salt Cell.? maximum flow, for example 85 GPM, for their Salt Cell.
A: For a normal backyard residential pool, there is not a consideration for high flow. If you have a variable speed pump with low flow, there is a consideration to ensure that the cell stays flooded with water at low pump RPM's.
