Velocity Kleen Polished Nickel Cathode Cell
The MIRRAKEL cell must be installed horizontally (level) within 5 degrees, in the return to pool line.
Heaters and other
equipment in the return
to pool line must be
installed before the cell
(i.e. Between the cell
and filter)
The two plumbing inlets must point down and the water flow must correspond with the direction of the
arrow on the cell housing. If an air blower is fitted to an air inlet, precautions must be taken to prevent gases
generated in the MIRRAKEL cell from accumulating in the blower and associated pipe work.
The Power Pack must be mounted on a vertical wall or fence within 1.5 metres of the cell and at least 1 metre
above the ground. The Power Pack must also be in a position to allow its supply lead to be plugged into a
The filter pump must be
plugged into the Power Pack.
10 amp 240 volt power point.
Select a suitable place to attach the mounting bracket, at least 1 metre above the ground and clear from
hazards. Ensure that the location selected is well ventilated (allowing plenty of airflow behind the unit) and
is not in direct sunlight (If mounted in direct sunlight the LED indicators will be less visible). The suitable
location must not be attached to or on top of a source producing large amounts of heat (e.g. metal fence or
shed wall).
When secure, plug the lead
into a suitable 240 volt power
point, but DO NOT SWITCH THE
Mount the bracket horizontally ensuring that the vent louvers above the screws are facing upwards. Carefully
hook the Power Pack onto the mounting bracket.

bottom right hand corner and remove the cable entry cover by pulling downwards. Plug the pool pump into
the pump socket on the front of the unit. Refit the cable entry cover making sure all cables pass through the
tunnel behind it to ensure they do not interfere with the proper closing of the Control Panel Cover.
Tighten retaining screws.
Off-Peak Installations
This unit is suitable for off-peak tariff supply (but will require installation by a suitably qualified tradesman).
Chlorine Control
Because your MIRRAKEL Chlorinator has been designed to operate over a wide range of salt
levels, water temperature, running time, etc, a Chlorine Control has been provided to compensate
for these variations. When first starting the unit and where maximum chlorine production is needed
the control knob should be rotated fully clockwise. To operate the filter pump only without the cell,
simply turn the Chlorine Control knob fully anti-clockwise.
LED Chlorine Output Monitor
The LED Chlorine Output Monitor has been provided to allow monitoring of the chlorine output
being produced by the cell.
Power/ No Flow/ Check Salt Indicator
This red light is illuminated when power is applied to the Power Pack. It will flash when there is a
problem with the water detection circuit (i.e. an empty cell). The Check Salt light will flash when low
salt levels are detected.
For Manual Operation
Press the
button until
is displayed. Filter, pump and cell should now be operating
(if the Chlorine Control is correctly adjusted). To turn the filter, pump and cell off, press the
button until
is displayed on the screen.
For Automatic Operation
Before attempting to operate you MIRRAKEL chlorinator in the Auto mode for the first time,
the internal clock must be set for the time(s) and duration required.

Chemical Balance Guide
Proof (i.e. hard copy) of regular water
analysis by a reputable professional
pool shop will be required as evidence
of suitable water quality and balance in
the event of a warranty claim.
Your MIRRAKEL chlorinator is designed to be used for swimming pool water, which needs to be
balanced in accordance with Langlier Saturation Index, with a pH level of 7.0 to 7.8 and maintains the
recommended levels of sanitizer. (i.e 2 - 3 ppm of free chlorine). Regular water analysis and advice
on correct addition of chemicals and/or products to achieve suitable water quality and balance by
a reputable professional pool shop will ensure bather health and comfort and extended equipment
service life.
Maintenance Frequency
Your MIRRAKEL Chlorinator has been designed to operate for extended periods of time with a
minimum of maintenance. The cell cleaning function is performed automatically via the velocity of
the water travelling over the plates. However manual cleaning on a regular six monthly basis will
enhance chlorine production and extended equipment service life.
Cell Cleaning
Manual Procedure
1. Remove MIRRAKEL Power Pack plug from 240 volt power point.
2. Remove cell from plumbing.
3. Turn cell upside down (inlets facing upwards) and place on a level non-metallic surface in a well
ventilated area.
4. Prepare an 8:1 acid cleaning solution by firstly measuring 2 litres of water into a plastic bucket Handling Acid:
Rubber gloves and protective
eyewear must be worn.
Do not put used acid solution
into the pool
and then carefully adding 250ml of Hydrochloric Acid. Stir thoroughly with a wooden stick.
5. Carefully pour sufficient cleaning solution into the upturned cell so as to fully cover the metal electrodes.
6. Allow to stand for 10 minutes then flush out with clean water.
7. If electrodes still show white deposits, repeat the above steps.
It is recommended that a warm water detergent solution be used to soak the electrodes at this
point if there is any evidence of body fats, oils or grease.
8. Refit the cell to plumbing line making sure both rubber “O” ring seals are in place.
9. Re-connect the Power Pack plug to 240 volt power point and switch on.
General Warnings
This system is fitted with a backup
battery and real time clock.
