Mineral pool | Easy Maintenance | Low annual cost | Love our Magnapool

published

Our pool is used by a variety of children from all over the neighbourhood. They swim in our pool for hours and don’t show any signs of chlorine effects given through standard chlorinated systems. One family friend with eczema uses your pool as their own salt water chlorinated use needs to be monitored and limited. Besides all the positive reasons above, the annual cost of keeping our pool crystal clear is less than half of all our friends using salt water or chlorine options. We spend on average $40 per month (one 10kg bag) on our 7mtr x 3mtr pool. Approx 27000 litres. We don’t use anything else, once you have the hours of operation set and strength of system set it’s pretty much self sufficient !

Faulty sensors

published

Terrible product. The sensors have failed/broken 3 times in a month. Very frustrated and not happy. Have had a techiciam from Zodiac out three times and it keeps on failing... The only way you know it's not working is to manually test it regularly but this defeats the purpose of getting it in the first place. Great system in theory if it works.... But when it doesn't its a compete waste of money

After having our magnapool here in NZ for 10 years our cell has finally stopped working. We love the feel of our pool which I call the fountain of youth. My pool shop recommends to replace the control and cell for some reason, should I have to do this or just the cell.

We have had our pool less than 6 months. We have had our unit replaced once already. Our second unit is also faulty. Not a great product. All of these units were supposedly recalled???

Love the mineral water to swim in but it is destroying the Gel coat on our pool. The pool is only 2 years old

published

The water looks, tastes lovely, but just been told we should be using liquid instead of crystals nobody has told us this before. Apparently there have been tests done in Victoria by a Gel coat company and they are recommending liquid minerals.
This doesn't help us after 2 years of doing what the installer advised. Nobody knows where to get 'liquid minerals' from & we have never been told this before. We have only used the Magna minerals as these were used in the handover of our new pool.
We have a 2 year old pool that looks worse than our previous one that was 30 years old. Please help us, we are very disappointed & looking to pursue this further if need be.

Taste of the water

published

Hi,
We have had our Magna pool for a few months now and the water tastes disgusting, everyone that swims in the pool comments on how bad it tastes.
We had a Magna pool at our previous house and cannot remembering the water tasting like this??

Best Pool Ever

published

We had been reading about Magnapool for a while and thought we would set up pool to be Magnapool.
We thought if it does live up to expectations we can revert to back to saltwater.
However we cannot recommend the Magnapool enough. No chlorine smell, no sting of the eyes and just a great all round feel on the body. At first there was a slight different taste to the water, but this disappears after 2-3 weeks.
It is without a doubt the single best decision we have made in designing and setting up our pool, it was easy to set up as well.
You wont look back.

Absolutely love Magnapool and wonderful for little one's

Best Ever Pool

published

We've had our MagnaPool for a year now and can't get over how the water is amazingly stable and soft, least amount of salts/chemicals we've ever needed, considering it is in full west sun it is quite incredible and the water is crystal clear - best pool we've ever had!!! Best pool cleaner too.

The water is wonderful on skin, hair and eyes, the standard comment from everyone visiting is how amazing their skin feels and you don't need a shower or wash your hair afterwards, which is great for long hair. Regular swimming manages psoriasis as well. Just love it :)

Great pool system

We love our Magna pool. Wonderful soft water and never burning chlorine eyes. Don’t mind the taste of the magnesium either. Pool water is always clear and inviting.

Just the best

After going from a old concrete chlorine treated pool to a new Maga-pool we have nothing but praise for this system.
Everything so simple to test and maintain,
We have many more spare hours now for swimming!

Andrea E.asked

I have owned a magna pool for 11 years and I can't stop the controls from beeping saying add more mineral. It does not need more mineral everything is good. The pool shop said they do have a total hours and you need to reset this. Do you know how to reset hours for this please.

Hi Andrea,

Thanks for your inquiry, This sounds like a pre-Zodiac/Fluidra product that was made by Poolrite the previous owners of MagnaPool (none of our current products beep or have any audio alarms). Unfortunately we don't use or supply any of their equipment, but you may be able to find info online to fix the issue. Our recommendation would be to upgrade to a new Hydroxinator, that is supported by us and with spare parts readily available for future-proofing and peace of mind: https://www.magnapool.com/product/hydroxinator-iq. Feel free to reach out to us via LIVE CHAT on the website if you have any further questions.

Regards,
Fluidra Support

I have had a Zodiac Magnapool Hydroxinator and Cell for four years now and it has been awesome. In the last month however, it seems to intermittently indicate I have a cell problem and the electrolytic cell doesn't produce chlorine(?). However, when I press the boost function, the electrolytic cell operates as it should. I've removed and cleaned the cell today and also tried using a brand new cell - with the same result. All connections are fine and chemical and mineral balance within desired ranges. I spoke to our local pool shop after we tried the new cell and they suggest the Hydroxinator needs replacing. Any ideas why it works sometimes and not others, and why it does work on boost? What is the average life span of a Zodiac Hydroxinator and can they be repaired?

Hi James,

Thanks for your inquiry. It could be the cell has reached the end of life, but one thing to observe is how often the cell comes on every 10 minutes. The output system works by activating the cell for 1 minute in every 10, for every 10% worth of output.. ie at 30% it will be on for 3 minutes and off for 7minutes every 10 minutes. So if you set the output for 10%, watch the cell and see if it is on for around a minute and then off for the rest of the 10-minute cycle

If you need further assistance, we can be reached at the live chat located on this page during 9am-5pm Mon to Fri: https://www.zodiac.com.au/contactus
