Water quality is a really important part of any swimming pool, the amount of chemicals added to the pool can cause irritations and be costly.


Over 2,000 years ago the Ancient Greeks found that algae did not grow in water stored in copper containers. They also discovered that it seemed to purify drinking water.


It was not until the nineteenth century that the reasons were understood, and the process was established commercially. We use charged ions to kill bacteria and algae. A simple to use method of ensuring quality water, with very little effort. As the pool water passes through the in-line cell unit, copper and silver ions are released, reducing bacteria and killing algae.


You still need to use a small amount of chlorine, but by doing this, Chlorine consumption is reduced by up to 60% - making it particularly ideal for those sensitive to chlorine.


That is the equivalent chlorine content tap water has. This method also reduces maintenance and running costs of the pool. We are that confident in our water quality we will drink from our pools to demonstrate how well our equipment is working on keeping the chlorine levels low.
