reverse polarity for a pool chlorinator

    i want to build a polarity reverser circuit that reverses the polarity
    on my saltwater chlorinator as this keeps the salt cell clean.
    i want something that changes the polarity every time the clorinator
    turns on, it is on a timer with the pool filter and runs every day.
    a new control box for the salt cell costs around $1400.00. any help
    would be much appreciated,

    thanks.

    Seems like those that do the auto-clean function run two banks of
    cell(s), putting one in 'clean mode' while the other is in 'chlorinate
    mode'. Assuming you need to clean a cell for the same length of time as
    long as you use it, and that you need to chlorinate more than half the
    time the pool is used, you may need two or more cells and wire them via
    a timer to auto-polarity reverse.

    I don't know zip about chlorinators but.... why aren't the things 12V AC if
    DC is so bad for them?
