The Viron eQuilibrium Salt Water Chlorinator systems are AstralPool’s premier range, with highly advanced electronics and a range of options to minimise or eliminate the change in water balance. This smart system dramatically reduces manual water testing, maintenance or corrective actions required for your pool water.

eQ systems are designed to make pool ownership simpler and come standard with a peristaltic acid dosing pump that will automatically, safely and conveniently dose your pool with acid to manage the pH levels in your pool.

The eQuilibrium series is available in models with 18, 25, 35 and 45 gram/hour chlorine output, to automatically sanitise residential pools from 50,000 to 170,000 litres* (refer to climate information provided below).

This advanced system is packed with features such as large LCD, easy-to-use touchpad, in-built rain and UV cover, intelligent self-cleaning cell, filter-backwash timer and convenient Bluetooth control from your smartphone.

You can match your Viron eQ chlorinator with an advanced Viron XT Pool Pump from Clark Rubber, allowing you to control your filtration system remotely using CHLORINATOTGO Smart App.

Since they began manufacturing gas pool heaters under the Hurlcon name in the 1990s, AstraPool has become one of Australia's leading suppliers of quality swimming pool and spa products. They aim to provide the best-quality equipment for commercial and private swimming pools and spas. Designed and manufactured in Australia, with reliable, robust construction and quality components, AstralPool saltwater chlorinators are reliable and built to last.

Viron eQuilibrium systems are available in four options and the Standard model can be upgraded with pool-water sensor probes to provide higher levels of automation.

Standard system:

Semi-Automatic pH control. The system adjusts the amount of Acid added to the pool when the pump is running. Ideal for general 8 hour per day running periods.

1.       EQ Plus (System 1):

Add: pH Probe.

Provides full automation of measuring pH levels in the pool and then dosing Acid to meet set point.

 2.       EQ Balance (System 2):

Add: pH Probe and Chlorine Probe.

Provides full automation of measuring pH and dosing of Acid. Full automation of measuring Chlorine levels and adjusting output on Chlorinator cell.

3.       Total Ai Mode (System 3):

Add: pH Probe and Chlorine Probe and Viron XT Variable Speed Pool Pump.

In Total Ai mode, the Viron eQuilibrium Chlorinator automates everything and can test, monitor and maintain the perfect sanitiser level and pH balance, while also controlling the pool pump for maximum energy savings. All of this to keep your pool safe, healthy and looking great for you and your family.

Total Ai Mode provides full automation of pH measurement and the dosing of Acid, as well as the full automation of chlorine level measurement and chlorine output adjustments.

This mode will also adjust the Viron XT Pump’s variable speeds accordingly to water and outside conditions to reduce energy consumption. Additionally the Viron eQ and Viron XT pump communicate to ensure the correct water turnover and correct chlorine levels, and will control the pump speeds to maintain these levels as well as making adjustments when changes are sensed.


Features & Benefits:

Automatic chlorine generation:
With a Viron salt water chlorinator there’s no need to manually dose your pool with granular or liquid chlorine. You can simply “set and forget” your automatic chlorine generator and let it sanitise the pool for you. Salt water chlorinated pools produce softer-feeling water which many bathers may prefer, and they also have the benefits of reducing eye irritation, itchy skin and chlorine odour.

Inbuilt Peristaltic Acid dosing Pump:
eQ Chlorinators feature an in-built peristaltic pump to automatically and conveniently dose the pool water with acid to manage the pH levels in your pool.

Simple upgrade for greater automation:
eQ systems can be easily upgraded from the standard model, with the addition of optional pH and Chlorine sensors to give greater control over the measurement and adjustment of pH and Chlorine levels.

Easy-to-use touch pad and time clock:
eQ chlorinators feature a large LCD screen and advanced user interface for detailed programming and operating status, and to give you convenient control of filtration cycle settings, clock settings, spa modes and chlorine output settings.

Advanced electronic power supply:
The Viron Saltwater Chlorinator's advanced electronic power supply provides pure DC power to maximise the efficiency of the electrodes to produce the highest level of chlorine for the lowest power consumption, reducing the power consumption and keeping the pool safe and healthy. It only uses 200 watts of power when operating.

Intelligent self-cleaning cell:
The V-Series self-cleaning, “reverse-polarity” cell minimises your need to monitor and clean the cell to remove any calcium build up on the electrode plates, in turn extending the life of your chlorinator cell.

Filter backwash timing:
Sand filters require regular backwashing to release the entrapped dirt and debris. The Viron Chlorinator has a very smart function that operates the pump for one, two or three minutes, ensuring the filter is backwashed for the correct period and turns off the electrolytic cell, preventing excessive build-up of sanitiser and by-products during the backwash process. This feature also ensures that the pump cannot accidentally be left running and empty the pool, requiring expensive top-up water.

Convenient App Controls and Automation integration:
With the Viron Chlorinator you can easily and conveniently monitor your chlorinator and manage systems settings with Bluetooth control and the CHLORINATORGO App.

Viron chlorinators can also be integrated with Viron pool pumps and the Viron Connect 10 Pool and Spa Automation System, making the management and monitoring of your pool and spa equipment much easier.

Suitable for minerals:

The Viron Chlorinator is suitable for use with pool salt or AstralPool’s unique AcquaTherepe Minerals which give the pool water a softer feel and help prevent staining and calcification.


  • 5 year warranty on the electrolytic cell
  • 5 year pro rata on the power supply / controller
