Hello all this is my first post. I have spent the better part of my day researching or attempting to research the above mentioned topic. I noticed an in depth discussion as to why UV is useless but that took place back in 2011 and figured we may have some new opinions or supported facts?
Why am I concerned about this? Being in a chlorine pool makes me feel sick after a while (not just irritating but literally makes me feel like i'm catching a cold and cough after spending a good amount of time in a pool and there have been studies linking chlorine to respiratory problems). Being in warm beach water makes me feel great. Not sure if anyone has experienced this but swimming in a pool when your under the weather makes me feel worse but swimming in beach water makes me feel better. Beach water has something of a healing effect and pools usually the opposite.
I'd love to jump into a pool and know I am swimming with the minimal amount of chemicals possible. Spectralignt claims to reduce chlorine use by up to 90% which made me almost buy it on the spot. I'm not so interested in the debate against UV as I am in simply understanding how to get chemicals down as much as possible for a more natural swimming environment, short of moving to the carribean
I am considering purchasing a 21'x43' 54" oval AG from the pool factory and would really like to know what I'm doing in regard to above before I purchase it. Thanks!!!!
