In the world of poor quality pool equipment this is a stand-out.
I've spent many hours researching chlorinators and none were exactly reassuring. I came across these reviews and was slightly dubious given the low numbers of reviews. However I did further research and asked around and eventually took the plunge. It's been installed for about 3 weeks and in these very early days I think it's great. Feels very robust (although I've added waterproof shade cloth to further protect it). The controls are reassuringly simple without unnecessary complexity. I love the super chlorination feature and the salt measuring... Read more. I've been running it at 50% chlorine output for 2 weeks, just measured the chlorine in the pool and it's way too concentrated (I bought the kgs30 for a 40kl pool) - so dropped it down to 30%. My old chlorinator was a zodiac and was ok but definitely underpowered, underfeatured and lasted only 7 years. Everything seems well built - my only minor criticisms are that the inlet/outlet ports of the cell are different to the diagram supplied and it also took me an age to figure out how to set the timer. It is much more simple than other chlorinators - you just select which individual hours you want - I was looking for complexity. The true test of course will be in a few years - is it still doing what it should? But a 4 year warranty suggests that the manufacturers think it will be.
Very happy so far
I bought a K-Chlor Chlorinator from Nova Chlorinators and Spares, having seen outstanding reviews for this product - and having been quoted $1800 for an inferior chlorinator installed by a local supplier. Pool Store DIrect charged me $1300 for this chlorinator with free delivery. It was relatively easy to install with less than $50 of plumbing supplies to adjust to my system. Steve was very helpful on the phone discussing the installation. The chlorinator is working well, and the controls are user friendly. It also measures salt which my previous chlorinator did not. Comes with 4 year warranty. Will post again if I have any problems, but seems good.... Read more
Bought the KChlor Digital Gold series from Pools Direct on special for $1250 after my Therachlor SMC25 chlorinator died after 3.5 years of service. I had read other positive reviews about KChlor, but was still quite surprised at the excellent quality of the unit. For me, it was plug and play. The cell screwed straight onto the existing housing and the unit was easy to mount. Navigation through the unit was a breeze and I was instantly able to get to each menu and submenu intuitively, in fact more easily than the last chlorinator, after 3.5 year... Read mores of practice. Many more features too. I can set the timer so that the pump can run in 1 hour increments with or without chlorination, I can get a salt reading (this was accurate when compared with the one performed at the store), I can see the water temperature, I can set a super-chlorination for 24 hours and then have the pump revert back to normal mode. None of this I could do with the other unit, or if I could do some of them, I never managed to figure out how! The backlighting was much better too. Plus 4 years warranty - no one else seems to do this. The pool is really clear and the cell seems to be doing its work at much lower settings than the last unit, which had been struggling these last couple of years. Australian made too. Very impressed so far.
My Zodiac Chlorinator died after 4 years so I was immediately forced into chlorinator investigations - lots available. Anyway, I bought a K Chlor Digital Chlorinator from PoolStoreDirect 6 mths ago and have been very happy. It very easily produces enough chlorine for my 56,000 litre pool and navigation of the controls was easy to master.
KChlor Digital Gold Series Absolute Gold
It's been a year since i have installed my KChlore and cant beloeve how well it work easy to use my old saltmate system was useless ataintaining chlorine levels. And i went through 4 cells in 7 years.
I run my pool through winter at minimal setting to keep it circating and it useually goes a little funky with some allgey but thos year has been crystal clear all winter.
Has a salt reader that is built into the program so you can test salt at a push of a button.
Very happy with this chlorinator if i get life out of cells and unit i will never switch to another brand.
Excellent Choice of Chlorinator

This is by far the most economical and efficient chlorinator on the market and so easy to use.
KChlor digital gold series are the only way to go due to very little maintenance and very simple to use. I have a lot of trees and debris constantly in the pool and it has never turned once.... Read more

Questions & Answers
Can the cell hours be reset? I have replaced cell. But hours are well above 16000 hours
Is there a contact for K Chlor (Kawana) Direct? I am interested in purchasing a K Chlor to replace my current broken-down chlorinator, but no brick-and-mortar pool shops in my area supply them. My concern is after-sales service if something goes wrong. Thank you.
I called them direct to ask advice on installation. They were very helpful. https://www.kawanachlorinatorspares.com.au/
