There’s no question that having your own freshwater swimming pool is a dream shared by many of us. Around a million Australian homeowners are lucky enough to do so. And there’s no doubt that having a beautiful swimming pool on your prop...
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.
The evidence is coming from all over: using chlorine for pool water purification poses serious threats to human health – especially for children. Never mind the red eyes, irritation to nose and throat, the horrible smell, chlorinated water can cause asthma and other chronic respiratory ailments. It has even been linked to some forms of cancer.
Ozone is a very effective oxidiser but it has a short life. The ozonator produces ozone gas that is injected in to the pool circulation system to aid the residual sanitiser. Ozone is becoming a popular back up for chlorine systems and salt chlorinators.
Copper/silver ionisation is the most popular form of swimming pool ionisation. Copper and silver are nature’s mineral sanitisers and have been used for thousands of years to sanitise water. Copper is a powerful algaecide and silver is an effective biocide.
The Enviroswim ES-3 swimming pool water purification system is a revolutionary breakthrough in swimming pool technology that sanitises water without adding chemicals. Using a powerful combination of silver and copper electrodes, ionization and ultrasonics, the system removes all the “nasties” from your pool and leaves you with pure, clean water.
“Freshwater swimming pool” is the term used by the swimming pool industry to distinguish between a conventional and a salt water pool. The truth of the matter is that there is no such thing as a freshwater swimming pool. You can come close and the way you do that is by minimizing the amount of solids, or elements that will become dissolved solids that you add to the pool.
Salt water chlorination is the most commonly used system for pool water purification in Australia. It works by adding salt to the pool water.
