Have you ever imagined what it would feel like to swim in a chemical free pool? Does a pool that is chlorine-free sound too good to be true? Could you ever imagine not spending all that money on chlorine, algaecides, shock, and cyanuric acid stabilizer chemicals?
An ionized pool is one of the greatest pleasures you will experience. Once you realize the beauty of swimming in an ionized pool, you will only have to swim in a chemically-treated pool one more time to know how bad chlorine is and how lucky you are to have an ionized pool.
Chlorine free pools / chemical free pools do indeed exist and have been around for years. Intec was the first company to commercialize copper ionization for use on swimming pools over 30 years ago. Copper ionization has become more popular due to the concerns of chlorine being absorbed though the skin and having direct links to cancer. Now, more than ever, a chlorine free pool is a highly coveted home technology.
Without sanitation, then algae, viruses, fungi, and other micro-organisms can originate, grow, multiply, and infest the average pool in less than one hour. Diseases too numerous to mention affecting the ears, eyes, nose, throat, skin, and internal organs are often spread from one person to another.
Ionization was developed by NASA and is the least expensive of all disinfecting methods. Ionization is also the only method that produces healthy pool water. Ionization is the easiest of all disinfecting methods to maintain and monitor. The complete system comes with the Water Doctor electronic unit, copper electrode, and necessary test kits.
What is a chlorine free pool?
Chlorine is the most commonly used sanitizer for swimming pools. This would also include salt water generators that produce sodium hypochlorite chlorine. Copper ions simply replace the need for chlorine disinfectants and are more effective at controlling algae and bacteria. With Intec's ionization technology, you will no longer need to buy chlorine, stabilizer, algaecides, or shock. Thus, your pool without these products is a chlorine free pool.
What is a chemical free pool?
Simply stated, anything that is added to an ionized pool is self-sacrificing and no longer remains a chemical in your pool. For example, to lower the pH in your pool, an acid has to be added. There is no other way to lower pH. The acid will lower pH to the desired level and then it has totally sacrificed itself in the lowering process. More scientifically, the hydrogen ions (H+) in the acid (acids have a heavy hydrogen concentration) will combine with the hydroxide radicals (OH-) that make up alkalinity. H + OH = H2O or water. Therefore, you now have a chemical free pool.
