Solar Powered Pool Purifier

The Solar Powered Pool Purifier is a non-toxic pool purifier that floats in the pool, releasing mineral ions into the water instead of chlorine. Chlorine use is minimized by up to 80%, therefore your skin will not get as dry and you won't have to worry about bleached hair and the other annoying effects of prolonged chlorine exposure. The mineral ions are much less harmful to the human body but can effectively combat the growth of algae and other microorganisms. The unit is completely safe and even is recognized by the EPA to produce ionized water that is suitable to drink. You can even swim with the unit without impeding the purification process.

While chlorine loses its cleaning power, mineral ions remain useful for weeks on end. The Solar Powered Pool Purifier runs on solar power and begins working immediately upon placement into the pool. Because the unit runs on solar power, you don't need to worry about charging it or paying for the electricity to run it. Also, there is no shock hazard, because the unit operates on low-powered current only. It typically takes about two weeks for the ions to reach significant enough levels, but this depends on pool volume. For larger pools, you may need to purchase more than one purifier, but one unit can handle pools up to 30,000 gallons. That covers most home pools. If you're not sure how many gallons your pool holds, check the filter: you can usually find the information there.

Maintenance is manageable, since all you have to do is clean the mineral electrode once a week with a standard garden hose. You can even rinse out the unit over a bed of soil, as the mineral ions serve as great fertilizers. Depending on the amount you plan to use the pool, one unit will typically last 1-2 seasons.
