LOW & NO CHLORINE


Reducing The Use Of Chlorine


WHEN IT COMES TO LOW AND NO CHLORINE PRODUCTS, THERE IS MORE CHOICE AVAILABLE THAN EVER BEFORE. WHETHER IT’S CHEMICALS OR SYSTEMS SUCH AS UV AND OZONE, THE UPTAKE IN PRODUCTS WHICH FEATURE NO OR MINIMAL CHLORINE SHOWS NO SIGNS OF SLOWING UP AS PEOPLE SEEK AN ALTERNATIVE WAY TO TREAT WATER. WE LOOK AT SOME OF THE AVAILABLE OPTIONS TO REDUCE CHLORINE USAGE IN POOLS AND SPAS

hlorine. Its very mention is enough to start a debate, as for some, it is the only truly effective water sanitiser and there is no other satisfactory way of keeping water in pools and spas completely clean and safe. For others though, it’s a way of treating water that they just want to get away from. No matter what your view of chlorine, one thing is for sure is that it is a tried and tested sanitiser but what is also apparent is that it’s use is on the decline as more methods of treatment that either completely remove or significantly reduce the need for it gain in popularity. So will we ever wave goodbye to the use of chlorine? Well, possibly in the future but there are currently a number of systems and products available that either partially or fully replace the need for chlorine or which significantly reduce the amount used

whilst not compromising on hygiene and water quality.


REDUCING CHLORINE CONSUMPTION WITH LO-CHLOR STARVER®


Maintaining an adequate level of chlorine in your swimming pool water is essential to provide a safe and healthy environment for its users. It is possible to create an environment where lower chlorine consumption is achievable, this can be attained by lowering the actual ‘demand’ on the chlorine. Chlorine demand can come from


a combination of sources although they are mainly physical, environmental and chemical. Using Lo-Chlor Chemicals proven Starver® phosphate treatment programme will help reduce the demand and the necessity to maintain such high levels of harsh chemicals such as chlorine. Less demand ensures that your chlorine and algaecide lasts longer therefore saving money on chemical purchases throughout the season, typically the demand can be reduced by up to 30%. Unlike alternative brands Lo-Chlor Starver® is a global leader in phosphate management and control. Starver®


is both non-toxic and


biodegradable providing a ‘greener solution’, helping reduce the demand on the chlorine and enabling these lower levels of chlorine to work more effectively and combat bather pollution. Starver®


achieves this without

turning a pool cloudy as it is retained in the filter, stripping out unwanted phosphates as the pool water circulates. This programme allows constant pool use during treatment and by doing so takes out the phosphate, the major nutrient for algal growth. No phosphates = no algae which in turn means less demand = lower chlorine consumption.
