Risks of Pool Chemicals &
Disinfection By-products

Recent Scientific Studies Have Exposed Dangers of Pool Chemicals

Credible studies indicate that some pool chemicals are more toxic than we ever imagined. During typical chemical disinfection, chlorine and other chemicals react with organic matter to form hundreds of disinfection by-products that have been linked to asthma, allergies, and even cancer.

How can We Minimize the Risks of Pool Chemicals?

The risks associated with swimming pool chemicals and their by-products (some chemicals combine to form new chemicals) must be minimized. In the last few years, we've learned how to safely eliminate most of the chemicals in swimming pools and how to eliminate by-products. Ultraviolt disinfection eliminates up to 90% of chlorine and nearly 100% of chlorine side effects SpectraLight Ultraviolet reduces harsh chemicals to safe levels commonly found in drinking water. SpectraLight frees swimmers from burning eyes, skin irritations, foul chemical odors, bleached hair, and chlorine allergies. Ultraviolet makes any pool safe again, and helps you to protect what's important.
