    ....proudly offers a chlorine-Free pool

    Stayed at a pretty nice hotel over the weekend. Downtown Atlanta with a rooftop pool. Needless to say i didn't swim for very long (not that it really matters). The pool must have been a giant metal form, cause when you bounced as you walked on the bottom you could feel if vibrating/flexing. It appeared to be very old and painted.

    I didn't ask anyone what the use instead of chlorine, but it was a salt water pool....i'm guessing it has a SWCG and management just doesn't have a clue.

    This will be the last time i go anywhere without at least the small Chlorine/PH test kit!



    Sorry forgot to take pics of pool. Here is a screen grab from their webstie



    found this review on the web.... http://mtbmarvin.blogspot.com/2007/09/g ... nting.html

    which suggests that they use this product

    So at the worst management just has no clue and this is false advertising....or they just like to further the myths to satisfy the greenies.

    I have not seen a sign like that at any hotel pool. Interesting.

    I think you hit the nail on the head. Surprises me to no end how many people think that a SWCG pool has no chlorine.

    A good test kit is an investment, not an expense.
