Swimming Pool Problem Overview
Swimming pools are open water systems and are
constantly influenced by the environment as well as by the swimmers using
Rain, wind and sunshine all have an influence on the purity
and clarity of the water. Of course, so do the swimmers, introducing foreign
particles such as sweat, urine, lotions and oils into the swimming pool
In maintaining a clean, healthy swimming pool we need some
form of sanitizing to keep the pool water clean and clear, and prevent
illness for those who swim. This is usually achieved by the use of chlorine,
which has also been shown to be carcinogenic. Alternative sanitizers, such
as the Pool Wizard, greatly reduce the amount of chlorine and other
chemicals a swimming pool requires.
The balance and quantity of
chemicals we put into our pools is therefore extremely important from a
health point of view - on the one hand we have bacteria, viruses and fungus
which can potentially cause illness, and on the other hand, the swimming
pool chemicals we add cause us physical harm. Unfortunately we can only see
the relatively harmless black algae and green algae present in the pool
water, the really harmful bacteria, viruses and fungi remaining invisible to
the naked eye. The presence of pool algae also promotes bacteria growth,
thus creating a real health risk.
Through regular swimming pool
maintenance, we can ensure healthy and enjoyable times at the poolside.
Without it, we can be certain of distress and illness.
