Chlorine used to disinfect swimming pools & Parks is widely recognized as a health hazard. Furthermore, research suggests that children who swim frequently in chlorinated pools may have increased risks of developing allergies and asthma. Additionality, Doctors have linked chlorine exposure with important health problems including bladder and rectal cancer and coronary heart disease. Ozone Swimming Pools & Parks offer a great alternative for pool disinfection without any health risk.
COMMON CHLORIDE RELATED PROBLEMS:
A study conducted by Catholic University in Belgium linked chloride with the development of asthma in children. Presumably, mediated by nitrogen trichloride (NCI) a by-product of chemical reactions between ammonia and chlorine. Furthermore, NCI can damage the respiratory thin tissue in children and increase their risk of lung disease.
Dental Enamel Erosion:
Chlorine in pools can cause rapid and excessive erosion of the dental enamel on a person’s teeth. For instance, New York University (NYU) College of Dentistry’s Dr. Leila Jahangiri discovered that Cl levels are higher related to enamel erosion. Indeed, it was found that symptoms related to dental enamel erosion were reported by 3 percent of non-swimmers, 12 percent of swimmers who were not members of the swim team, and 39 percent of swim team members.
Spontaneous Abortion and Stillbirths in Pregnant Women:
Swimming is an attractive activity among pregnant women, especially to maintain their muscle strength and relieve weight-bearing strain on the lower extremities. However, the toxic chloride by-product created by a chemical interaction between chlorine and organic substances can harm an unborn child.
Doctors have linked Bladder cancer to exposure to chlorine by-products through inhalation and dermal absorption. For example, In a study published in the American Journal of Epidemiology. Researchers linked bladder cancer risk to exposure to trihalomethanes (THMs). In fact, the study showed that swimmers who regularly swam in chlorinated pools had a 57 percent greater risk of developing bladder cancer.
Chlorine Causes Corrosion of Swimming Pool Stainless Steel:
The chlorine product reacted with nitrogen-bearing compounds producing Chloramines that are deposited on metal surfaces. Repeated cycles of condensation followed by evaporation cause the accumulation of these aggressive chloride-bearing compounds. In fact, these chemicals are responsible for the vast majority of metal corrosion issues near swimming pools.
BENEFITS OF USING OZONE SWIMMING POOLS & PARKS
The Ozone pool will be much cleaner, which means dirt, grease, oils, organics and other materials will wind up in the filter system much faster than with chlorinated systems. That is why proper maintenance of the filter system is important.
Part of the problem in adopting Ozone is that engineers, architects, pool builders, and designers are not familiar with the technology. Technical issues beset several Ozone applications, particularly those built 10-15 years ago.
Although ozone systems have been in regular use in Europe and other areas of the world since the 1950s, swimming pools have generally relied on chlorine primarily because many people in these industries are reluctant to “change gears” and don’t take the time to educate themselves. on the proper and successful application of ozone.
What is the difference in the technologies? Chlorine is a complex man-made chemical that found original use in the infamous “mustard gas” of World War I. Ozone is a tri-atomic form of oxygen, as an unstable gas, it naturally decomposes into oxygen. Ozone is also a very reactive gas that acts as a powerful oxidant.
- There is no chlorine smell. Because Ozone oxidizes organic and inorganic substances which provide the chlorine odor.
- Decrease in Chlorine use – saves money on chemicals in the long term
- Healthier swimming water – water quality will be safer and healthier for active pool users and swimmers
- No toxic or harmful residues
- Ozone improves filtration efficacy. In short, by breaking down large molecules into smaller ones that are easier for the pool filter to break down
- Prevent eye irritation
