Pool Treatment

Why Do I Need Pool Treatment?

Pool treatment keeps your pool clean and free of contaminants. If a pool is not treated properly, bacteria and algae will grow. This is not only unhealthy, but it can also make the water cloudy and slimy.

How Do I Know What Kind of Treatment to Use?

There are many types of swimming pool treatment systems on the market. One item all pools need is a filter. A filter will keep debris like leaves, dirt and hair from ruining your swim. Let’s take a look at specific swimming pool treatment systems:


Chlorine is a popular pool sanitizer. It can be bad for your skin, eyes and hair. It is also flammable and has to be stored with care. The amount of chlorine needed depends on how large your pool is and how many people are going to be swimming in it.

Salt Water Treatment

Salt water systems use a process called electrolysis to convert salt into chlorine. They may be an alternative to chlorine, but they are very expensive. Salt can also cause damage to fixtures, liners, heaters and other pool hardware.  If you are looking for a chemical free pool solution, this is not it.


Ionization has been used for centuries to purify water. It greatly reduces the need for chlorine, cleans the water and kills bacteria and viruses in the water.


Ozone uses oxidization to clean pools without irritating your skin.  It does not have the hazardous side effects of chlorine.

The Clearwater Pool System is an alternative to chlorine and the closest you can get to a chemical free pool.  It combines both ionization and ozone to kill bacteria, algae and viruses, while leaving your pool water clean and crystal clear.
