Ultraviolet pool systems are officially changing the way traditional pools are sanitized. Current research has shown the harmful effects of pool chemicals on swimmer’s health and safety. It’s been discovered that chlorine and other pool chemicals are related to allergies, asthma and even a few forms of cancer. The answer to this risk was ultraviolet pool systems. These advanced systems use a physical process, not harsh chemicals, to blast contaminants with powerful germicidal ultraviolet rays. The ultraviolet rays never enter the pool water, since these systems are installed inline after your pool’s filtration system. The result is a swimming pool with 99% less contaminants and up to a 90% reduction in chemicals.Now pool owners can enjoy swimming in a pool that’s similar to a natural spring, and avoid irritated eyes, itchy skin and the foul “chlorine” smell. Not only are swimming pool systems with ultraviolet light better for your health and the environment, but also better for your wallet. Although the initial investment can be costly, pool owners who use ultraviolet sanitation methods save hundreds a year by using less chemical alone. You could save between $400 and $600 dollars on chemicals each year with an ultraviolet system.
