Keeping Your Swimming Pool Clean without the Use of Toxins

A swimming pool full of crystal-clear, cool water is so inviting on a hot summer day. But if you’ve ever had a pool, you know that keeping the water clean is no small task. And it usually involves the use of “pool chemicals” such as chlorine. There are some non-toxic options out there today, however. Here are some ideas.

Ionization

Have you seen bottles of ionized water in your health food store? Water that is ionized has been purified by an electrical process, usually involving copper and silver. Copper and silver are ionized, or given a positive electrical charge, and then these copper-silver coils are placed in the pool. As the water circulates around the ionized metal, sanitizing water ions are released back into the pool.
