Your family deserves pure water swimming. If there are health concerns about showering in chlorinated water (from either inhaling chlorine vapor or from chlorine being absorbed through the skin), what about being immersed for hours in a heavily-chlorinated public pool or inhaling the steam as you sit meditatively in a chlorinated spa, or even a heated pool? There is a better way. European pool filtration technology is way ahead of American, since in Europe many pools are indoors and the concentration of chlorine gases in the “pool room” can be nauseatingly uncomfortable. (Take a deep breath next time you walk into the hotel indoor pool).
To solve this problem, Europeans invented an ozone filtration system in which the water is zapped with bacteria-killing ozone as it goes through the filter and then the ozone self- destructs as the water re-enters the pool. This is the system that we have installed on our pool and spa, and it is probably the healthiest $500 we have ever spent. Actually, by the time you factor in the savings of having a chemical-free pool and the lower maintenance cost, it’s probably the most cost- effective way to filter your pool water, too.
