Is chlorine bad for my swimming pool?
Chlorine in general is not bad for swimming pools, as it tends to be relatively diluted (not over-dosed). The by-product of chlorine is chloramines. Chloramines are the toxic chemical that cause red eyes and itchy skin. On occasion, they can also exacerbate people’s allergies on-contact with the skin or when inhaled (whilst swimming).
A variety of standards in Australia all recommend a minimum amount of free chlorine is required in the swimming pool to maintain good quality water while ensuring nasty bacteria and viruses are eliminated.
It’s how the by-product of chlorine (chloramine) is treated through the sanitation process, that is important. The advantage of Ozone Swim is that it eliminates or significantly reduces irritating chloramines and preserves a minimal amount of free chlorine to eliminate nasty pool water contaminants
