There’s a lot of misinformation and confusion about alternatives to chlorine for swimming pool sanitation. We get calls from people all the time about the various products on the market that claim to be green or ‘eco-friendly’. They want to know what the difference is between these systems and Enviroswim. The simple answer is: all the difference in the world.
Obviously, as the manufacturers of the Enviroswim pool water purification system, you’d expect us to say it’s your best option. But we don’t have to! Just look at what our customers have to say bearing in mind that these are 100% genuine and unsolicited testimonials from people using the eco-friendly freshwater swimming pool system.
We live in a constantly changing world. Today, consumers are becoming far more aware about the use of chemicals, not just in swimming pools, but in their drinking water, in their food and in their gardens.
Chlorine is the most common form of swimming pool water purification used around the world. It is an effective sanitiser when used correctly. However it is extremely volatile making it hard to maintain a continuous safe residual level in a swimming pool. The evidence of serious health issues associated with chlorination is growing at an alarming rate.
The earliest recorded example of copper being used for natural water purification can be found in Ancient Egypt. A medical text, known as the Smith Papyrus (c. 2400 BC), mentions the use of copper as a sterilization agent for drinking water and wounds.
We human beings have an instinctive reaction to chlorine in our swimming pools: we don’t like it. The smell, the taste, the irritation it causes to eyes, nose and throat – it’s nasty stuff all right. But most people, who are aware that swimming is an incredibly beneficial form of exercise, accept it as a necessary evil and put up with the irritation.
