JOURNEY TO AN OXYGEN POOL

With all the hype, half-truths and outright lying that we see about alternative water treatment in swimming pools, we thought it would be helpful to explain our test data about all the options available to treat pool water, how they work and if they work. So we will provide you with our experience with [...]

MAGNETIC WATER TREATMENT TESTING

MAGNETIC WATER TREATMENT There are two primary claims made regarding the application of magnetic water treatment: scale reduction, and water clarity.  In a swimming pool environment, our fundamental interest in magnetics was to see if it would reduce calcium buildup in salt cells and along the water line of the pool.  The second claim [...]

MINERAL AND IONIZATION WATER TREATMENT

Both mineral systems and ionization systems use metals, primarily copper, to reduce chlorine usage and prevent algae growth in pools.  Copper is an effective algaecide and has some properties as a bactericide that makes it helpful with sanitation.  In these systems, other metals sometimes are used in addition to copper such as silver.   [...]

ULTRAVIOLET WATER TREATMENT SYSTEMS

Ultraviolet light has been used for years by surgeons to sterilize their equipment and is now being used in HVAC ductwork to purify air quality moving through the home.  Unfortunately, we did not find Ultraviolet water treatment system to be cost effective in sterilizing residential swimming pool water.  UV is different than both chlorine [...]

SALT WATER POOL SYSTEMS

By far the most commonly used alternative to straight chlorine chemical pools are salt water pool systems.    If you already own a salt generator, you know that first, hundreds of pounds of salt must be added to the pool and you will need to keep the salt level up to make sure the system [...]

OXYGEN POOLS, AN OXYGEN BASED POOL WATER SOLUTION

OXTGEN BASED WATER TREATMENT FOR SWIMMING POOLS After eliminating the technologies that did not meet nominal requirements, we developed an alternative that does, in fact, allow any pool owner to use an oxygen based technology at a reasonable price.  If you’re like most pool owners, you want to make sure your water is safe and [...]

FORMULA “O”

Shocking the pool water will burn off additional contaminants deposited in the water through rains, winds and organic bather waste.   Formula "O" is a nonchlorine, blended powder that is added to the water weekly and combines most of the typical ancillary chemicals (shock, clarifier, stain and scale prevention) into one easy weekly treatment rather [...]
