(FAQ) Frequently Asked Questions


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.

What Chemicals Will I Needed to Use With a Pool or Spa Sunshine Ionizer?
It is necessary to maintain a constant chlorine level of at least .2 ppm with chlorine tabs.  For bromine maintain at least .4 ppm.  It has been proven that maintaining .2 ppm chlorine and .2 ppm copper is more effective sanitation than using just chlorine at 2 ppm.  You will need to maintain the copper level at .3 ppm.  You must also maintain your pH between 7.2 and 7.6.


Is our Sunshine Ionizer Compatible with a Salt Chlorine Generator?

Yes, you can use our Sunshine Ionizer with a Salt Chlorine Generator as the ionizer will improve the water quality as the chlorine level can be maintained at only .2 ppm.

What do I need to know about my pool or spa when ordering?
You will need to know if your filter pump is connected to 120 or 240 volts, and if your filtration plumbing is 1 1/2" or 2".

How often will I have to clean the electrodes?
With our Sunshine Ionizers your electrodes may never need to be cleaned.  If the electrodes should need cleaned, they are easy to clean.

What about an Ozone Generator?
You can use our Sunshine Ionizers with an Ozone generator.  An ionizer costs much less than an ozone generator and are safer, much more reliable and provide much better water quality.

Do you have larger Ionizers?
Yes, we have several models of commercial ionizers that will treat up to 1,000,000 gallons with just one ionizer, and even larger pools can be treated by using multiple ionizers.  These ionizers are often used for treatment of water for commercial pools, cooling towers, fountains, ponds, lakes and industrial uses.  Call for pricing and information on our large commercial ionizers.
