SpectraLight UV Helps Protect the Environment

Shift Away from Pool Chemicals for a Cleaner, Greener Planet

We’ve been hearing about going green at home for years, now it’s your pool’s turn.  With over 8 million pools in operation, there’s a huge opportunity to lighten the impact on our environment. 

So Why Should we be Worry about Chlorine?

Studies show that chlorine is dangerous to people and all living organisms.
Researchers have demonstrated that repeat exposure to chlorine can affect the immune system, the blood, the heart, and the respiratory system of both people and animals.  And it doesn’t take much.  Chlorine can cause environmental harm at low levels. The problem with chlorine and the environment is complicated. First, some components of chlorine never break down or biodegrade. Some of these compounds accumulate in the tissues of animals (and people). Second, some concentrations of these compounds biomagnify, meaning they get higher in animals at the top of the food chain.

UV :: A Towering Achievement for the Environment

Eco-friendly ultraviolet light doesn’t add anything to pool water and creates no disinfection byproducts.  UV can save our planet from over 1 million pounds of chlorine each year.  SpectraLight reduces environmental impact by shrinking the chemical footprint which reduces the use of fossil fuels and the emission of greenhouse gases.  Together, we can make your swimming pool a healthier place for your family and preserve our environment.  Now that’s protecting what’s important.
