Intec America Pioneers the Concept of Chlorine-free and Healthy Swimming Pools and Spa
Intec America have pioneered the idea of chlorine-free spas and swimming pools by using the copper ionization technology developed by NASA. This is not only a healthy alternative but also saves on costs.
15/01/2020 -- Intec America is one of the few players to commercialize the copper ionization technology developed by NASA, for commercial as well as private swimming pools and spas. There have been various alternative methods to realize the concept of chlorine-free swimming pools and spas, and a number of swimming pool sanitizers are available in the market. However, this technology has proven to be safe for users and serves all the purposes of chlorine usage.
Chlorine has been used to disinfect swimming pools from many years, and has benefitted people in many ways. It controls algal and bacterial growth in water. However, it may cause skin allergies. So, there was a need to develop better ways to purify and sanitize the swimming pool water. While the idea of chemical free pool and spa systems and chlorine-free pool systems may sound great, it may not be actually safe for continuous use. This is because the absence of chemicals or chlorine may propagate bacterial and algal growth. However, most private pool and spa owners would be happy to know that swimming pool ionization systems are easy to install, safe, and cost effective.
Copper ionization is a process wherein copper ions enter the water source through electrolysis. This is done by plumbing a flow cell or an electrode with low current into the pool’s return line. When current passes through the electrode, copper ions are released into the water. Intec America uses copper-only electrodes. Ionizers are effective when there is enough number of ions inside the pool, depending upon the area. For smaller pools, a continuous power supply may not be possible, and hence having chemical free pool and spa systems may be challenging in some cases. Even then, ionization would reduce the amount of chlorine required.
