We’ve talked a lot in these blogs about the environment and the negative effects swimming pool chemicals can have. We have addressed the controversial issues of using chlorine for swimming pool sanitation and the potential dangers to human health. Now, for a change, we’d like to focus on the swim part of Enviroswim and talk about the many benefits of getting into the pool this summer.
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.
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.
