Saving Money with a Chemical Free Pool Treatment System

We’ve talked extensively about how pool chlorine alternatives provide a healthy option for people trying to reduce chlorine use.  However, now it’s time to talk bottom line. The Clearwater Pool System offers a chemical free pool treatment option which will save you a significant amount of both time and money over the long term.

MineralPURE is the pool ionizer that is part of the Clearwater Pool System.  It is designed to not only purify the water, but have a residual affect that provides ongoing protection.

OzoneMAX, also part of the Clearwater Pool System, uses ozone to purify the water as it binds with oxidizing substances such as viruses, bacteria, algae, mold, suntan lotion, body oils and urine. While no system completely eliminates the need for chlorine, the Clearwater Pool System significantly reduces it. Together, MineralPURE and OzoneMAX are the healthiest and most cost-efficient chemical free pool treatment systems available.

The Clearwater Pool System is so reliable and provides such a cost savings, even marine aquariums, commercial pools and water parks use it. Homeowners associations are finding it to be a cost-effective solution as well.

Bottom line, using chlorine as the sole pool sanitizer is very costly and time consuming.  Chlorine also wreaks havoc on your pipes and filters. If you want to reduce chlorine use and save money on both chemicals and maintenance, consider the Clearwater Pool System. Once you install it, you’ll never go back to using chlorine as you sole pool sanitizer again.

What is a Pool Ionizer?

A pool ionizer offers pool owners the alternative to have a Chemical Free Pool. Here is an overview of what a pool ionizer is and how it works to keep your pool chemical free as well as free of bacteria, viruses and algae.

What it is

An ionizer uses a microprocessor and electrodes composed of copper and/or silver. When pool water passes over the chamber the electrodes generate a low-voltage DC current that causes some of the outermost atoms of the electrodes to become positive ions. The water that runs through the chamber collects the ions which then help kill algae, bacteria and viruses. Copper is a key ingredient used in algaecides and the silver ions take care of the bacteria and viruses. With an ionizer you reduce the amount of chlorine required for your pool even following a larger pool party or a heavy rainstorm.

What it does

The ions remain in the water and offer residual protection for long-term maintenance. As well they offer nontoxic purification and continue to prevent against recontamination. Copper and silver ions remain in the water and create masses that work to continuously collect algae and other contaminants such as bacteria that can then be removed by your pools filtering equipment. You can keep track of the proper ion levels using a test kit.

How it works

The beauty of the ionizer is it allows you to have a chemical free pool. The copper and silver ions create a potent biocide that does not use chemicals to purify your water. Instead an electrostatic bond forms with negatively charged areas of the water which begins the disinfection process. They work against microorganism cell walls which then distorts the cell wall which stops them from being able to absorb the nutrients they require to thrive.

The role of Copper and Silver

Copper and silver will attack an algae cell and the amino acid residues in the proteins used for photosynthesis. By stopping the process algae is unable to grow and therefore the cells die. Even if the cell does manage to live the ions will stop the reproduction process so that the algae are unable to spread. As well bacteria are killed right out instead of being suppressed from chemicals. That means dangerous things such as E-Coli, the most potent contaminant found in public pools and other water sources cannot survive in a chemical free pool that uses an ionizer.

Families love ionizers at it is the safest, healthiest way to provide fresh, clean pool water without the ill affects of chlorine such as burning eyes, skin irritations and brittle hair.
