    Re: eko klor ionizer


    I just looked it up:

    You don't want that. It's just a solar powered copper ionizer. "These electrodes then produce a combination of copper and other ions which prevent the growth of microorganisms."
    If you use the search box for copper, you won't find much good said about it. Copper is good as an algae killer, but it doesn't do anything to oxidize organic wastes, like sweat and snot and dead skin, nor does it kill bacteria fast enough to prevent person-to-person transmission. So you'll still need to maintain chlorine levels. Chlorine does all three.!

    If you're sick of lugging jugs, maybe you should look into a saltwater generator? If you get an intex, you'll want to disconnect the copper ionizer bar!

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
