DESCRIPTION
General Information
The Saline C 6.0 is a saline chlorination system designed for commercial swimming pool applications. The Saline C 6.0 is certified to produce 5 pounds
of equivalent chlorine per day (based on 3500 ppm of salt). The system produces chlorine continuously from a salt concentration of 3500 ppm to 5000
ppm added to the pool. The Saline C 6.0 is designed for commercial service and can be operated 24 hours a day and/or controlled by any pool controller.
All models are reverse polarity for self cleaning and reduced cell maintenance.
Electrolytic Cell Assembly
The electrolytic cell assembly consists of a clear cell vessel containing an electrolytic cell made from precious metal coated cell plates. Pool water from
the pool circulation system is directed through the cell. The pool water, maintained between 3500 and 5000 ppm salt concentration is converted in the
electrolytic cell to free chlorine. The free chlorine is then circulated to the pool and combines with organics and further combines to form salt to be used
again by the electrolytic cell. This is called a closed loop system because the salt is used repeatedly and is only lost through splash-out, backwashing,
leaks and rainfall.
Power Supply and Control Box
The power supply provides the current to the electrolytic cells to produce the rated amount of sodium hypochlorite. The power supply houses all the safety
features to prevent system operation in the event of a malfunction.

INSTALLATION
Unpacking
Units are shipped from the factory. In the event of damage during shipping, it is the responsibility of the customer to notify the carrier immediately and to file
a damage claim. Open the crate or packaging carefully and examine all material inside.
Storage
When storing units, use the original packaging and store under a shelter to protect the contents from weather.
Plan Ahead
Almost every pump room encountered is different. It is imperative to have prior knowledge of the facility in which the unit is to be installed and to evaluate
what type of tools, wall anchors, etc. will be needed to make the installation as problem free as possible.
The power supply must be installed at least 5 feet (1.5m) from the pool. It must also be mounted within 5 feet (1.5m) of the cell housing so the DC cables
to the top of the electrolytic cell will reach. Also, any pool controller must be within 5 feet (1.5m) of the power supply so the control cord will reach.
The cell housing must be mounted at least 5 feet (1.5m) from the pool walls.
Power Supply Installation
The Saline C 6.0 system comes with 4 rubber feet on the bottom of the power supply and 4 keyhole mounting holes on the back of the power supply. The
power supply can sit on a shelf or similar structure without any mounting or the system can be mounted on to a wall.
CAUTION To reduce the risk of injury - Never try to support the weight of the power supply using only drywall anchors. The power supply must have
a stud for support!
Locate a space on the wall, in the pump room, that will accommodate the dimensions of the power supply. The two top keyhole mounting holes are 11-1/4
inches apart. Install screws and hang the power supply.
Cell
System Wiring
WARNING - Risk of Electric Shock. Hazardous voltage
can shock, burn and cause death or serious property damage. To
reduce the risk of electrical shock, turn off all power to the system.
Power
Cord
CAUTION Chemical Hazard - Chemicals can cause internal
and external burns, causing death, serious injury or property damage, to avoid: all systems must be wired so that when the pool
circulation pump is off, the power to the Saline C 6.0 is off. Consult
a Certified Electrician for the best wiring method to achieve this.
All Saline C 6.0 systems ship from the factory with a 3 foot black
power cord and a 6 foot blue control cord.
Plug the power cord into a minimum 15 amp wall outlet protected
by a ground fault circuit interrupter. Connect the blue control cord
to a chemical feed controller or for continuous operation without the use of a chemical feed controller, plug the blue control
cord into a 15 amp wall outlet protected by a ground fault circuit interrupter. This outlet must be interlocked with the circulation pump
of the pool so that if the pump is turned off, power to the Saline C
6.0 is disconnected and the system is unable to operate.

Plumbing The System
Saline C 6.0 systems require a minimum of 40 gpm of flow through the electrolytic cell housing to achieve the rated production of chlorine. The system can
be plumbed with the full flow of the circulation system flowing through the cell housing or a bypass can be created to achieve 40 gpm of flow through the
cell housing. In either case the cell housing must be installed as the last component in the return to the pool, after all other equipment. The vessel has 4
mounting holes for attaching to a floor or mounting surface. See the plumbing diagrams below.

Electrolytic Cell Housing Information
The cell housing may be installed in a “Z” configuration or in a “U”
configuration. The water flow always enters at the bottom fitting
(marked “Inlet”) and exits at one of the top fittings. The unused fitting is capped off with the supplied cap. The cell housing includes a
slotted base for optional floor mounting. The inlet and outlet of the
cell housing are 2 inch unions.
When installed correctly, the arrow on the electrode should align with
the arrow on the vessel housing. This will ensure the gaps between
the electrode blades are parallel to the ports allowing a clear water
path between the blades.

OPERATION
Preparing The Water
Hayward® saline chlorination systems operate by electrolyzing sodium chloride, NaCl, (salt that has been added to the pool) to form free chlorine. In order
for the Hayward system to operate, salt must be added directly to the pool at least 24 hours before the system is started.
28 pounds of salt must be added for every 1000 gallons of pool water to reach 3500 ppm and 40 pounds of salt must be added for every 1,000 gallons
of pool water to reach 5000 ppm. Once the salt has been added, brush the surface of the pool continuously until the salt has dissolved. Never leave large
amounts of salt on the surface of the pool.
Only use pure NaCl. Do not use salt with additives. Contact your Hayward dealer for a list of approved salt.
Your pool water should be balanced in the following range before turning your Hayward system on:

Less than 100 ppb
3,500ppm salt - Minimum Temp. - 78 Degrees F
5,000ppm salt - Minimum Temp. - 60 Degrees F
Maximum Temp. - 104 Degrees F
Starting The System
• Confirm that the salt concentration is 3500 to 5000 ppm.
• Confirm that the valves to and from the cell are in the open position and water is flowing through the cell tube.
• Confirm that the unit is plugged in and that the flow switch or controller relay is connected.
The system will begin producing chlorine within 3 minutes.
Chemical Feed Controller: If the Saline C 6.0 system is linked to a chemical feed controller, adjust the output to maximum, which will allow for full production every time the controller calls for it. NOTE: The Saline C 6.0 system connected to a chemical feed controller will only operate when the controller
is in feed mode. Make sure that the chemical feed controller is not set in proportional mode or system damage may occur.
Controlled Manually: If the system is being operated manually, start at 65% output. Over the following days, monitor the pool and increase/decrease the
output in small increments based on the measured chlorine level. It may take several days of to find the ideal output setting.
System Operation
Saline C 6.0 systems operate when the main power supply cord is plugged in and the system has an input on the control connections from the flow switch
and from a chemical feed controller. The Saline C 6.0 will continue to operate as long as there are inputs from those two sources.
Output is adjustable from 0 to 100% of the systems rating and is displayed as %
output on the LCD display. To adjust the output, hold the output selector switch
in the up position to increase output or in the down position to decrease output.
NOTE: Any time an output change is made with output selector switch, the Saline
C 6.0 will record this change in its memory. In order for this to happen, the unit
will wait 2 minutes from the time the change is made and shut down for 1 minute
while it records the change. Output will resume after the 1 minute period.
Low Salt Alarm
In the event that salt falls to a level too low for system operation, the system
will stop generating chlorine and the LCD display will flash “LO SALT”. To reset,
correct the salt concentration and hold the output selector in the down position.
When the fault is cleared, reset the output to the desired level.

Maintenance
This system produces free chlorine from the salt that you have added to the water. It will only continue to operate correctly if salt is maintained at a
minimum 3500 ppm level.
NOTICE: Low salt will lower the amount of chlorine produced, and cause damage to the electrolytic cell. The warranty will be void if the cell is damaged due to a low salt condition. Electrode life will be lengthened by keeping them clean and ensuring salt levels are at the correct level (see below).
Remember, the titanium plates that make up the cell are the most expensive part of the system and are going to need to be replaced roughly every
15,000 hours of operating time. By ensuring that salt is always at the correct level, and plates are cleaned regularly, you will increase their life.
1. Check salt concentration. Salt must be maintained at no less than 3500 ppm. Check salt as often as necessary to ensure at least
3500 ppm concentration. Salt concentration can be measured by using one or more of the following methods:
• Salt test strips. Salt test strips are accurate as long as the expiration date has not expired and the cap is always replaced immediately. Follow
the directions on the bottle.
• A variety of hand held testers could be used. Hand held testers must be calibrated regularly, follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
• Salt can be measured with a permanently mounted monitor or controller. These are typically accurate and require no calibration. A controller
can be used to automatically keep the salt concentration at the desired level.
• Adjust the salt concentration as often as needed to maintain the desired level.
2. Test the flow switch for proper operation at least once a month.
3. Evaluate the cell condition every week. Visually inspect the cell tube for leaks and the cell stack for calcium build up.
4. The vessel is equipped with a drain plug for service. To drain the vessel, follow the procedure outlined below:
• Disconnect power to the system
• Close isolation valves to and from the vessel
• Open the top of the vessel and remove the electrode stack
• Remove the drain plug at the bottom of the vessel.
5. Clean the cell when it needs it. Refer to the following instructions:
The Saline C 6.0 system is designed to operate 24 hours a day and 7 days a week at maximum production rates. Please ensure the basic maintenance and cleaning instructions are followed to guarantee performance.
CAUTION Chemical Hazard. Chemicals can cause burns both internally and externally. To avoid death, serious injury or property damage: Wear eye and skin protection while maintaining or servicing this unit. Do not inhale fumes from the unit.
• Remove power from the system.
• Close the isolation valves before and after the vessel.
• Disconnect the blue connector between the power supply and vessel.
• Remove the electrode stack by following these steps:
1) Open the lid of the vessel by turning counter clockwise.
2) When the lid meets resistance and stops turning, pull up on the black cables which will release the blue glamour cap.
3) Once the blue glamor cap has been released, continue turning the vessel handles counter clockwise until completely loose.
4) Remove the complete electrode stack assembly by pulling on the black cables.
• In a clean plastic container, mix a 4:1 solution of water to muriatic acid (one gallon of water to one quart of muriatic acid). ALWAYS ADD ACID
TO WATER - NEVER ADD WATER TO ACID. Be sure to wear rubber gloves and appropriate eye protection.
• Immerse the cell stack in the solution.
• Leave the cell in the muriatic acid mix until the solution stops bubbling and the cell is clean.
• Rinse the unit with clear clean water.
• Reassemble the cell stack in the tube and reconnect the cables to the top of the cell stack
• Once finished, insert the electrode stack assembly into the vessel and reconnect the blue connector to the power supply.
• Turn the handles of the vessel clockwise until tight, and then push down on the blue glamour cap to avoid water from entering the top of the cell.
