A copper ionisation pool can clean and disinfect your pool without the need for heavy use of chemicals such as chlorine or high levels of salt. Our innovative sanitisation system creates silky smooth water in your pool that’s similar to the drinking water in your home and it’s equally clean enough to drink!
Yes! Copper ionisation is a great way to clean and purify the water in your swimming pool. Ancient Greeks discovered that water that was stored in copper pots was free from algae growth. In the late 19th Century, water was passed through various porous materials impregnated with silver, creating positive ions and purifying it. Today, an ion-generating device can be installed in the circulation system. It’s an electrode assembly (a copper and silver electrode) and an electronic control unit that supplies current to the electrodes. Electrolysis then passes copper ions into the water where the silver disinfects and the copper prevents algae growth.
