What sanitisation does Pooled Energy recommend?
Pooled Energy does not recommend non-chlorine-based methods of disinfection for the following reasons:
Ozone does not maintain residual disinfection in the pool, that is, ozonators only work when they are running and the ozone sanitiser may not penetrate into corners and far-reaches of the pool. Chlorine and bromine can be active for days after the system is switched off, giving you long-lasting protection.
UV sanitisers work only where the UV touches, that is, inside the pipe. They have no penetrating power into the main body of the pool.
Silver and copper ion systems may kill the algae but require supplemental sanitation to kill bacteria and viruses and have had several Government warnings to this effect. They are not safe without supplemental sanitiser.
Pooled Energy DOES recommend chlorine-based methods of disinfection.
Chlorine and Bromine based sanitation is used in some 99% of all pools for good reason. They work best and that is why we use them. We currently do not offer a service for other types of sanitiser.
