    Soft Touch versus Digital Display Functional Comparison

    The primary differences between the "Soft Touch" models and
    the "Digital Display" models are found in the microprocessor's function, 
    the extent of pool water analysis, and also in the manner of prompting
    the pool owner with instructions.

    Pool Pilot Soft Touch Control Panel

    The Soft Touch
    [shown above] "no-frills" models incorporate the
    standard push-button controls, plus LED read-outs that offer accurate
    at-a-glance salt-levels. The Soft Touch models offer all the benefits 
    of salt-chlorine generation at a reasonable budget-minded cost.

    Pool Pilot Digital Display

    The Digital Display [shown above] "customer friendly" upgraded 
    models incorporate a new style of simplified push-button controls, 
    plus extra-bright vacuum type fluorescent digital read-outs that
    accurately displays both current water temperature and salt level,
    plus monitors water flow and total hours of conversion cell usage.

    But the most popular and functional feature designed into each of the
    three Digital Display models operation is providing the pool owner with
    a handy digital read-out showing the proper amount of salt that needs
    to be added to the pool water [shown below].
    Digital Display
    PLUS the Digital Display models all come with a built-in time clock
    for controlling the pool pump, which is an excellent way to save the
    cost and hassle of installing a timer unit on new pool installations!

    Never purchase Chlorine again. Never transport Chlorine again.
    And never smell that awful Chlorine odor again!!!

    PLUS... A Pool Pilot combined with an automated pool cleaning
    device can eliminate the need for Pool Maintenance Service! 

    The Pool Pilot system pays for itself in chemicals savings alone!


    Install it. Then forget it.

    Once an optimum level of operation is achieved, the only task
    required is to hit the boost cycle when weather conditions are
    extreme or the pool experiences unusually heavy use. 

    The Pool Pilot insures a constant low chlorine level which
    eliminates the wide fluctuations of over-and-under chlorination. 

    And the Pool Pilot drastically reduces the need to monitor,
    purchase, and add other balancing or maintenance chemicals.

    So, imagine having a "company perfect" pool everyday - 
    and never worrying about pool maintenance while on vacation.


    Salt is natural. It comes from the Earth.

    Salt is economical and available everywhere. It is also eco-friendly - 
    plus the salt-to-chlorine conversion is energy efficient!

    A wonderful thing happens to the salt after it is turned into low-level
    chlorine and does the work of sanitizing you pool water - it turns
    back into salt and the process begins all over again.

    But the best part is that the salt content of the pool water is at
    a much lower level than contact lens solution used with the human eye; 
    so harmless there is not even a detectable salty taste to the water!!!

    See HELPFUL Q & A - Information regarding Pool Pilot use


    INNOVATION – Pool Pilot Soft Touch's exclusive process:

    The salt-chlorine generation process naturally, economically,
    safely, and effectively controls all the harmful micro-organism
    growth in the pool water... reducing toxic levels of Chlorine use
    by scientifically generating its own nature-based salt chlorine
    at constant, sustainable low levels!

    Simply pour salt directly into the pool water - it dissolves quickly.

    Pre-assembled Manifold with Conversion CellWhen the ions in salt are passed
    over specially coated blades in the
    Pool Pilot's conversion cell and
    induced with a low voltage electrical
    charge, the ions are converted into
    naturally generated chlorine.

    When this process is incorporated
    into a swimming pool's filtration
    system, it creates a natural low
    level chlorine generator.

    The Pool Pilot reduces up to 80%
    of all the costly chemicals needed
    to kill unsafe algae and bacteria
    in pool water - chemicals that also
    can cause serious damage to the
    earth's delicate ecosystem.

    And more importantly, according
    to a recent study by Greenpeace,
    exposure to Chlorine gas during
    swimming may result in several
    heightened human health concerns
    including neurological problems
    in children, breast cancer, 
    deformities, and infertility.
    See Below* 

    • The Pool Pilot is so rugged and effective it was chosen exclusively
    • to serve as Carnival Cruise Line's onboard pool purifier system!
    • Designed to operate under the most demanding 24/7 high-volume
    • use, the Pool Pilot units easily stand up to use with pure sea water!

    So try a POOL PILOT Soft Touch and enjoy feeling the water's
    silky smoothness that comes with a naturally pure, chemically-free
    swimming pool experience!!! It's so easy to install and operate,
    and the water feels so luxurious, you will wonder why you didn't
    start using Pool Pilot years ago!

    Note: Contaminants other than algae and bacteria naturally
    build-up in pool water such as air-born dust, suntan lotion, human
    body oils, etc. which are not controlled by salt-chlorine process.

    An accumulation of these contaminants will tend to cloud the
    water; therefore a small trace amount of chlorine or other oxidizers
    is necessary to dissolve them to maintain crystal clear conditions.

    Other oxidizers that may be substituted are bromine,
    hydrogen peroxide, or oxygen based compounds, which are
    readily available at most pool supply stores.
