Founded in South Africa in the 1970’s, ChlorKing® has developed into a formidable player in the field of on-site chlorine generation. Chemical engineer David S. von Broembsen initially developed the technology for the treatment of underground mine water, dolphinarium sea water and other large scale swimming pool chlorination.
In 1999 David partnered with fellow South African, Steve Pearce and launched ChlorKing® Inc. U.S.A and moved manufacturing and distribution to Atlanta, Georgia to take advantage of the untapped U.S commercial swimming pool market where on-site chlorine generation and salt chlorination were starting to make some gains against the traditional methods of chlorinating a swimming pool with granular or liquid chlorine.
Today, ChlorKing® Inc. has taken over as the leader of on-site chlorine generation and salt chlorination for commercial swimming pools using patented technology which enables production of large amounts of chlorine in a single cell compared with banking multiple small cells together.
In 2009 ChlorKing® launched its NEX-GEN line of chlorine generators which are the first of its kind to produce pH neutral chlorine, on-site, using the swimming pool as the source water for the product.
An acquisition in 2009 also launched ChlorKing® into Ultraviolet light technology, together with the founding partners of Sentry UV, ChlorKing® now offers a cost effective, low maintenance, NSF/ANSI-50 certified Ultraviolet Light system for commercial swimming pools and spa’s. A rapid growth market, ChlorKing® is excited about the future of Ultraviolet Light technology and its potential in the commercial swimming pool market.
With over 6,000 commercial swimming pool and water park installations worldwide, ChlorKing® continues to grow not only with current products but with new and exciting merging technologies as well.
