Chlorine is easily the most popular of the swimming pool chemicals. For some, however, it is just too irritating. In fact, chlorine byproducts may be linked to asthma and certain other health problems. Still, swimming in an unclean pool can be just as hazardous to your health.
Fortunately, there are viable alternatives to using chlorine in your pool. One such alternative involves the use of an ozone generator. Ozone is actually a more powerful oxidant than chlorine. However, the use of ozone does have its limitations. Ask your pool dealer for information about using ozone to reduce or eliminate the need for pool chemicals.
