There are at least 3 ways to perform pool water treatment without using chemicals. Many people like to avoid the use of harsh chemicals such as chlorine when treating their pool systems. If the problem is left untreated, a pool is a perfect invitation for bacteria and pest growth such as mosquitoes. An untreated pool can pose a health hazard to you, your family and anyone else who uses your pool on a frequent basis.
When making the switch from chemicals to chemical-free treatments, try using the PristineBlue, Chlor-free or BZT Pool and Spa treatment systems. You may find that these systems may be as costly as the chemical treatments that you have been paying for but, in the long run, more environmentally conscious and friendly.
Step 1 - Using PristineBlue
PristineBlue is a company that offers a line of non-chlorine pool supplies. The process used by PristineBlue is registered in each state and with the EPA and meets NSF/ANSI Standard 60 as a drinking water additive. It is the same treatment used by municipalities and other water systems to control the growth of algae and bacteria.
Pristine Blue is a cost effective treatment solution for your pool since it only requires a few ounces of treatment as opposed to the gallons of chlorine used for the same pool. Treatment of your pool with Pristine Blue is only required once every 2 weeks. The products of the Pristine Blue treatment process includes PristineBlue, PristinePower, PristineClean, PristineExtra and PristineClear.
Step 2 - Using Chlor-Free
You may also choose to use Chlor-free products as a way to treat your pool without chemicals. Chlor-free is a product that oxidizes organic material that occurs in your pool. This includes algae, bacteria and other unwanted infestations, as well as makeup, sweat, suntan oils, body lotions, deodorants and other organics. Chlor-free is not a chlorine substitute, but is used in place of chlorine to clean up your pool and make the water cleaner.
Step 3 - BZT Pool and Spa
BZT Pool and Spa is a product made by United-Tech, Inc. The product is designed to attack and remove organic material, much in the same manner as Chlor-free. The BZT Pool and Spa solution makes pool water clearer and is an all-natural solution.
The product, when used as instructed, stops waterline rings in your pool, removes organics that clog pool filters. It reduces and eliminates the use of chlorine and other harmful chemicals used in traditional treatments that irritate skin and eyes. The product has a 2-year shelf life and can treat 160,000 gallons of water.
A pool supply store and online retailers can provide you with any of these alternative treatment systems for your pool. Using PristineBlue, Chlor-free or BZT Pool and Spa, as described in the steps above, will provide you with a chemical-free, organic alternative for treating your pool. Simply follow the package instructions for using these products.
