Cleaning a Pureline Crystal Pure Salt Cell: Same Process for a Hayward T-Cell

Every Salt Cell will get calcium build up on the plates in the cell and will require a mild acid bath. The Crystal Pure Salt Cell is almost an exact copy of the Hayward T-Cell (Turbo Cell) and the cleaning method is the same. The manual refers to scrapping the plates with a plastic object but access to the plates is restrictive and a mild acid bath is much easier to do.

I suggest a 4 to 1 or 5 to 1 acid to water ratio. 1-part muriatic acid and 4 parts water. You want to be careful and not overdo it or you risk damaging the salt cell. The process is very easy and the video will go into detail for you.

Here are the instructions from the manual for you below.

Mild Acid Washing: Use only in severe cases where flushing and scraping will not remove the majority of deposits. To acid wash: Turn off power to Crystal Pure. Remove cells from the piping. • In a clean plastic container, carefully mix a 4:1 solution of water to muriatic acid


The level of the solution in the container should just reach the top of the cell so that the wire harness compartment is NOT submerged. It may be helpful to coil the wiring before immersing the cell. • The cell should soak for FIVE minutes, then rinse with a high-pressure garden hose. If any deposits are still visible, repeat soaking and rinsing. Replace cell and inspect again periodically.

I prefer using the GLX-Cell Stand and Pureline also makes a stand for cleaning the cell.
