If you want to truly take advantage of your swimming pool, it is essential to keep up with your sanitation services. Keep reading to learn more about pool sanitation so you can figure out which system will work the best for you:
When most people think of pool sanitation, they think about chlorine. This chemical can get rid of bacteria in the water, which makes it safer for swimming. You can keep chlorine for a long time without worrying about it going bad. After you add it to the water, it continues to work for a long period of time. Some people experience eye and skin irritation after swimming in a pool with chlorine, though.
Unlike regular chlorine, salt chlorine is a product that can actually recycle itself. Once it does its job of sanitizing its water, it returns to its salt state so it can sanitize all over again. Salt chlorine keeps the water safe for swimming without as much skin and eye irritation of regular chlorine. It is a little more expensive than other options, though, and it might breakdown the handrails, the lights, and the swimming pool liners.
When bromine interacts with contaminates in the water, they create bromamine. Bromamine can actually enhance the sanitation of the effects of the bromine. It remains stable in warmer temperatures, which might make it more desirable in hotter climates. Bromine does not have a strong scent like chlorine and it continues to sanitize long after you put it in the water. It is more expensive than chlorine and salt chlorine, though.
