After a season with the Oxygen Pools system, I couldn’t be more satisfied. I started looking for a chlorine-free alternative for my pool last season that led me to the Oxygen Pool system. My water has never looked and felt better. The system uses Ozone that is gets injected into the water creating hydrogen peroxide and hydroxyl radicals that keep the water looking great.
Unlike the long list of negative by-products chlorine and salt water pools have, the only by-product from the Oxygen Pools system is oxygen and water. If you are thinking about switching over to a chlorine free pool, Oxygen Pools is the way to go.
Chlorine contains a ton of stuff that isn’t good for the family. Trihalomethanes are chloroform, bromodichloromethane, dibromochloromethane, and bromoform. EPA has published the Stage 1 Disinfectants and Disinfection Byproducts Rule to regulate total trihalomethanes (TTHM) at a maximum allowable annual average level of 80 parts per billion. are all by-products of chlorination. They are Cancer Group B carcinogens (shown to cause cancer in laboratory animals). Trichloromethane (chloroform) is by far the most common in most water systems. Dibromochloromethane is the most serious cancer risk, (0.6 ug/l to cause a 10-6 cancer risk increase) followed in order by Bromoform (4 ug/l), and Chloroform (6 ug/l).
