Advanced Chlorine-free, Chemical-free, Natural Swimming Pools
 
Our chlorine-free swimming pool systems are simply the most effective, reliable, and advanced method to purify your pool’s water. No toxic, caustic, corrosive chemicals to handle, maintain, or store. No more algae. No other pool sanitation products or systems provide the same complete protection or quality of swimming experience. Compare ours to the following:

Chlorine & Bromine Pools  -   Saltwater Pools   -   Ozone Generators   -   Baquacil   -   Cartridge Systems

 

Chlorine and, to a lesser extent, bromine are the most conventional way to sanitize swimming pool water. Chlorine and bromine are extremely effective at destroying organic material, which makes them a popular choice in pools. However, because they attack anything organic, this means that your skin, hair, face, and eyes also may be affected.

Once chlorine has attacked organic materials, it combines with them to create “combined-chlorine”, or Chloramines. Chloramines usually need to be controlled by “shocking” the pool. Outside the pool, chlorine can be hazardous to handle, or even to breathe in! Because of its toxicity and flammability, it can be dangerous even to store.

Beyond the high cost of chlorine and bromine products themselves, they require manual maintenance! Unless, of course, extra automated feeder and or drip systems are additionally purchased. Regardless, keeping chlorine in the water can be very problematic, even impossible in high chlorine-demand pools. Residual chlorine levels are highly affected by temperature; complicated pool chemistry interactions, such as pH, phosphate and nitrate levels; and even the number of people swimming in the pool! The more a chlorine pool is used, the more chlorine has to be used, and even more money is poured into pool maintenance.

Furthermore, chlorine takes large amounts of electricity to be created, which means large amounts of fuel must be used to create it. Once the chlorine is in pool water, it eventually gets transferred into the environment through splashing, draining, and backwashing. What this means is that less dependence on conventional chlorine may mean less impact on the environment.

 

Saltwater pool systems can be found under a plurality of names. You’ll see them called: Electronic Chlorine Generators, Saltwater Chlorine Generators, Salt Water Chlorinators, and of course, Salt Pool Systems. These devices simply do one thing; they manufacture chlorine directly into the pool system.

Saltwater Chlorine Generators require on average thirty pounds of salt to be put into the pool for every thousand gallons of water in the pool. These chlorinators use an electric current to break the salt (NaCl, sodium chloride) down into pure chlorine gas. This chlorine goes into the pool and sanitizes it in a similar manner to conventional chlorine.

Since Saltwater Chlorine Generators sanitize pools with chlorine, they are affected by similar demands; bather load, rain, algae blooms, pool chemistry fluctuations, and increased temperature all may require pool owners to purchase shock with which to supplement their Saltwater Pool Systems. Salt pools require a more restrictively maintained pool chemistry. If pH levels, alkalinity, and calcium hardness are too high, minerals will rapidly come out of solution and coat the Saltwater Chlorine Generator with white deposits that impede performance. If salt levels are too low, it will halt production of chlorine and may damage the system. If salt levels are raised to an extreme, bathers will taste it, porous stone and pool materials may build up with scaling and be damaged, and salt discharged into surrounding lawns and gardens can build up and sterilize the soil.

Salt Pool Systems are designed with a limited life. The process that creates chlorine from salt wears out the Saltwater Chlorine Generator’s internal components. This means that replacement parts are periodically necessitated: some brands are warranted for as little as 1 - 3 years of use (no more than 8000 hours of use), and some brands’ replacements range in cost from $600 to $1000.

 

Ozone generators, also called ozonators, are pool systems that use high-powered ultra-violet radiation to produce ozone molecules in the in-line chamber, which will only kill bacteria that come into contact with it. The only sanitation occurs in the ozonator’s chamber, leaving the main body of water unprotected by any residual levels of sanitizer. This means that the pump and filtration system must be running to provide any purification. Ozone generators have an extremely high price, especially when compared to the small amount of water they are rated to protect. In fact, in average size pools and above, the operation manuals of Ozone generators call for supplementation with conventional chlorine. In most cases, the cost/benefit aspects of these systems make them impracticle.

 

Biguanides, such as the products Baquacil and Soft Swim, are water purification chemicals that do not utilize oxidation to remove contaminates from the water. Biguanides are instead bactericides, breaking down the cell walls of bacteria. These products can provide a more pleasant swimming experience than chlorine, but can be up to double the cost. Biaguanides are manually maintained in the swimming pool, and can have diminishing effectiveness with long periods of use.

 

Cartridge systems for pools are purification devices that kill bacteria as they pass through this in-line system. These systems are only supplements for the majority of pools, as they provide no residual protection in the pool. They will reduce the need for chlorine, but will only treat the water to the extent that the pump can circulate the entire body of pool water through the cartridge. Additionally, pool cartridge systems can only be counted on to last a single season of swimming.
