Safer Ways To Maintain Clean Water In Swimming Pool
Swimming pool is the summe’s most luxurious accessory. But though it gives you an edge over summer heat, it should be properly maintained to look attractive and clean. Most pools are treated with chemicals as they are the most effective and quick way to kill bacteria, prevent corrosion, and inhibit algae growth right now. But chemicals are often harmful or at the very least irritating to skin and the respiratory system so it’s great to see more and more safer cleaners appearing on the swimming pool market.
Safe Clean Water In Swimming Pool
UV water treatment system
Besides being used in tanning and SPA salons ultraviolet light is also a proven method of killing bacteria in food, air, and various tools and supplies such as in nail salons. Right now UV light can be used as means of swimming pool water purification and dysinfection that not only lowers the level of chemicals in your pool but also saves you some coin.
If you’ve decided to reduce your dependence on chlorine, iodization is another way to sanitize your pool. Although, it’s an inexpensive and easy to install system it is slow acting and may lead to staining due to copper. You’d still need a sanitizer like chlorine to adequately cleanse your pool since ionizers do not oxidize pool water. Regular pH tests are required to prevent staining. Unlike chlorine though ionizers do not affect pool equipment.
Feasibility of Non-Chlorine Pools
As we’ve discussed previously in our post on saline pools the fact that added chlorine is reduced in non-chlorine pools doesn’t mean they are completely chlorine-free. It may either occur on its own as in salt water pools or it is still required for water sanitation in some amount.
Although many of the chlorine-free methods of water purification can claim they are safer it does not mean water with them will be completely free of chemicals or even chlorine. The pH tests woul have to be maintained as with regular methods of cleaning and some of the chemicals would still have to be added for the water pH level to be at appropriate rates.
However, if you want to reduce the level of chemicals in the pool or want to lower chlorine because of health issues these methods may come in handy.
