3 ways to clean a pool without chlorine
- A saltwater sanitizing system. Even though these systems do use a small amount of chlorine, it is not the main cleaning agent. In a saltwater cleaning system, the salt is converted into a form of chlorine gas that disinfects the water. The main difference between this and traditional chlorine is that traditional chlorine is put into the pool water in tablet or liquid form. Saltwater is considered to be lower maintenance and those who swim in this water say their skin feels smoother and softer.
- Clean the pool water with ozone, which is a form of oxygen that will destroy bacteria and harmful microorganisms in the water. An ozone cleaning system is popular because it is a naturally occurring substance and will convert back into oxygen after it’s purified the water. It cleans and purifies by using an ozone generator or an ultraviolet bulb system.
- A powerful way to disinfect the pool water is through ultraviolet sanitation systems. This uses a short wavelength ultraviolet light to kill or deactivate bacteria and harmful microorganisms. The UV light can destroy algae, viruses, bacteria and even some pathogens that are resistant to chlorine like e. coli or giardia.
