Salt Cell Cleaning Procedure

Clean your salt cell like a pro! Follow these instructions!

  • Remove the cell by loosening the unions to release.
  • Flush the cell using a garden hose and spray the nozzle attachment to remove or loosen excessive debris.
  • Pour the cleaning solution, Salt Scapes Cell Cleaner into a clean, empty, ‘polyethylene’ vessel. Alternative, use a #10 expandable plug to cap the end of the cell. Pour the cell cleaner directly into the cell.
  • Immerse the cells into the solution, ensuring that there is adequate product to completely cover the entire blade surface.
  • Foaming will be very evident as the solution works to remove debris from the blade surface. This is natural and will subside after a few minutes.
  • Soak the cell for 20 minutes.
  • Remove the cell from the solution and rinse with fresh water and inspect for cleanliness


  1. Heavily scaled cells may require a second application with fresh cleaning solution.
  2. DO NOT try to remove any deposits from the cell with tools. This may scratch or damage the coating on the blades and will VOID the WARRENTY.
  3. Don’t forget to be adding RENEWAL regularly to restore lost minerals, protect your system and keep your water looking clear and feeling soft.
  4. Clean all caretakers screen regularly – this is a common cause of a check flow reading. On the cell bypass assembly, look for the sticker that says, “Clean Union Screen Regularly.”
