A pool water ionizer is a device that releases positively charged silver and copper ions into the pool water. These ions kill the microscopic organisms such as algae, bacteria and fungi in the water. The use of a water ionizer also improves the pool water filtration. There are several benefits to using a pool water ionizer.
1 – Better Filtration
Most pools get dirty because of the presence of minuscule particles in the water. These particles are too tiny to be filtered out and remain in circulation in the pool water. The positive copper and silver ions emitted from the pool water ionizer bind with these particles, which are negatively charged. After the process of binding, the particles are large enough to be weeded out with the process of filtration.
2 – Kills Algae and Bacteria
The water pool ionizer emits a small current, which is highly effective in killing the micro-organisms in the pool water. This removes the presence of algae, bacteria, viruses and fungi in your pool, making it safer for you to enjoy.
3 – Minimizes Requirement for Chlorine and reduces chlorine compound, reducing water replacements
A pool water ionizer is effective in tackling algae and bacteria in most swimming pools. To improve sanitization, you may need to add small amounts of chlorine. You require minimal chlorine to be added to the pool, to improve the overall cleansing. In most cases, the chlorine required is so small in quantity that it cannot even be detected by swimmers.
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.
Without a proper 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.
