ChlorKing improves pool sanitization and eliminates the need for handling toxic, hazardous chlorine with the improved NEX-GENpH series of onsite batch chlorine generators and new ChlorSM commercial saline chlorinators.

NEX-GEN drops bleach production to $0.43 per gallon, less than a third of the cost of chlorine, and ChlorSM reduces installation time and power consumption by cutting size by 50 percent and weight by 33 percent.
