Product Information


The Chemtrol PC5000 Filter/Pump controller is a fully programmable controller that features complete automatic control of water chemistry (ORP, PPM, pH), water balance with Langier Index, TDS, and heater and temperature control. The PC5000 features a unique solid-state PPM Sensor that generates easy-to-use, direct and reliable readings of Free Chlorine concentration in water. Unlike conventional amperometric sensors, this sensor is simple to install and highly reliable. It includes a special flow cell and is not affected by oxidizers and or cyanuric stabilizers. With the PC5000, the combination of the PPM and ORP sensors gives the operator the capability to control either chlorine residual or oxidizing activity. It also features the Chemtrol proprietary Probe Alert Safeguard that constantly monitors the response of the ORP and pH probes and alerts the operator of probe failure. Other features include programmable shock treatment and chemical savings cycles, heater control with energy saver program, and Langelier Saturation Index for water balance. This unit includes the controller, respective probes (pH, ORP probe and solid-state sensor (PPM)), safety flow switch, Sanitizer PPM display and remote alarm, FCA flow cell assembly, PPM cell, and miscellaneous plumbing supplies.

The PC5000 has a user-friendly Main Screen display that enables the operator to supervise all the process functions at a glance and to quickly respond to any changing condition. The controller operates like a computer with full-screen displays and direct access to all menus and submenus. The front panel keypad is used to move up and down each menu and enter or exit the submenus. All operating functions can be easily modified from the keypad, including sensor calibration, control set-points, alarm levels and the programs for super-chlorination, sequential backwashing, chemical saving, and energy saving. The unit has security protection with ten 5-digit codes with 3 different access levels.

You can also add full remote duplex capability with the CHEMCOM communications package (sold separately). Any number of facilities can be monitored either by remote computer or by telephone. This allows real-time supervision by management and remote troubleshooting by CHEMTROL technical support. The Communications Package is item #PCx-ETHCOM.

Chemtrol controllers have a Five-Year Warranty on electronics module and 1-Year on all other parts.

Why should you buy a Chemtrol pool chemistry controller?

Chemtrol controllers are installed globally across a wide range of applications, which attests to their reliability and effectiveness. These controllers are designed with a strong emphasis on product reliability, ease of use, and friendly customer service. 

Another significant benefit of Chemtrol pool chemistry controllers is their five-year electronics warranty. Few companies provide such an extended warranty for their products, which demonstrates the faith that Chemtrol has in its controllers. A warranty of this length guarantees long-term protection for your investment and gives you peace of mind that you're getting a top-quality product. 

Perhaps most importantly, Chemtrol controllers make pool maintenance a breeze. They allow for precise chemical and pH control, making it easier and more cost-effective to operate your pool. With Chemtrol's automatic controllers, you no longer have to waste time manually dosing chemicals, which can sometimes lead to inconsistencies and inefficiencies. This improves the overall water quality and ensures a pleasant and safe swimming experience for all users. 

Chemtrol pool chemistry controllers provide excellent value for your money, top-notch customer support, and easy-to-use features that make pool maintenance more manageable than before. With their extended warranty and global presence, it's no wonder that Chemtrol (manufactured by Santa Barbara Control Systems (SBCS)) remains one of the leading manufacturers of automatic controllers in the United States.
