Green Pool Designs:How many alternatives to chlorine pools are available?

Non-chlorine Pools

Are you searching for ways to make your home lifestyle greener? Are you looking into  having a pool designed for your home? If  you love swimming pools, one of the best decisions you could make for your home is having a green pool designed and installed on your residential property.

Green pools are pools that are healthy for the environment and you. More importantly, green pools do not include chlorine. When you have a chlorine pool, you put yourself at risk of read eyes, extremely dry skin and damage to your swimwear.  Or worse- chlorine pools can cause respiratory health problems for people that suffer from allergies and asthma because chlorine has chemical compounds that  form into carcinogenic.

What are the environmental consequences of having a chlorine pool?

Every time a chlorine pool is drained, it releases toxic elements to aquatic animals and plants. If you plan on having a chlorine pool, you can use pool systems and products to reduce the chlorine content  damage to the environment.

To have a greener pool designed for your home,  you should consider the following swimming pool alternatives:

  1. Salt water pools. These green pools are popular than chlorinated pools because salt water pools create chlorine from salt. The salt water pools use generators to allow electric currents to flow through you pool water so that microorganisms, bacteria and algae are killed. There is no need to purchase chlorine for salt water pools.
  2. Ozonators. This kind of pool permits sunlight to disinfect the pool any time the ultraviolet rays come in content with oxygen. Ozonators can kill bacteria, mold, mildew and  even common viruses found in swimming pools. Swimmers prefer ozonators over chlorine pools because the soft water does not irritate the skin or eyes. This type of green pool is designed to save you money over time because you won’t have to spend as much money on pool chemicals.
  3. Moss Cleaners. It may surprise you,but moss can help clean your pools of bacteria.
  4. Natural swimming pools. This is perfect for pool owners that want a more natural feel to their pool, similar to a fresh lake. Natural swimming pools clean pools using natural plants and beneficial micro-organisms.
