What if I have Asthma or am sensitive to chlorine?
Irritation, sensitivity and chlorine odour in conventional chlorine pools are usually not due to chlorine but to chloramines, which are noxious compounds that are by-products of chlorine reacting with predominantly sweat and urine. in particular, Tri-chloramine exists as a gas that sits just above the water-surface irritating eyes and respiratory systems. These are particularly evident in indoor pools used by swim classes
If you are sensitive to ‘chlorine,’ please try a Pooled Energy pool running Advanced Water Chemistry. These use a chlorine/bromine chemistry where chloramines generally do not form. The number of types of chemicals used are less than in conventional pools and the amount of chemicals is often 3x – 5x less. You should have a much better experience.
