Sal-Chlor Developed the Oxy-Sal Oxygen – Mineral Swimming Pool Powerhead Treatment System in 2014.
The Oxy-Sal LED UV C8 Powerhead Fusion Chamber was designed by Sal-Chlor, who have been designing and manufacturing domestic and commercial saltwater sanitation systems for more than 50 years. In addition to our strong Australian market, Sal-Chlor have proudly distributed across the globe for 35 years.
In this time, we have developed effective water treatment systems for some of the most challenging environments, including Thailand, Cambodia, and South America. Our time and experience has led us to develop what we firmly believe is the most efficient and cost-effective way to deliver clean, safe water in all conditions.
We knew the secret for effective and affordable water treatment lay in UV sanitation, but other UV systems had notoriously struggled to find market traction because of the high cost and intensive maintenance of UV tubes. Existing products did the job, but not well enough.
We knew we could do better.
First, the UV tubes had to go. They were expensive, difficult to maintain, and they consumed energy like it was free. We experimented with UV-C LEDs, specifically those used in medical-grade sterilisation. To say we were blown away by the early results is an understatement. We knew we were onto a game-changer but had more work ahead.
By 2014, we had created what we believe to be the world’s best UV water sanitiser. Affordable, energy efficient, easy to install, maintenance-free, and still kills 99.9% of the chlorine-resistant pathogens that are getting through your current filtration systems.
