Everyday we hear and see topics regarding environmental issues and ecology and sustainability. So it was only natural to apply the green, eco principles to our swimming pools as well. It has been known for a while that the chlorine used in swimming pools to disinfect the water has negative harmful effects to our skin and health and that it is considered a toxin. Not to mention the fact that we all hated that cleaning product smell!
So, naturally, a series of companies popped up, offering different types of pool systems that do not involve chemical substances or reduce the need for chlorine up to 90%. TechnoPure offers an alternative to treating water with chlorine, by pumping it into a chamber which contains titanium plates and copper and zinc ions, all for the affordable price of $5,500! No one said being green is cheap!Another company,Ozone, has managed to come up with a system that reduces the chlorine in the water up to 90%, the product being tested at the White House for many years now.
And the most natural, environmental friendly solution was offered by Biotop, a company specialized in designing natural pool since 1994.Since then their network has grown and now includes partners in Austria, Belgium, Bosnia-Herzegovina, France, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, Israel, Italy, Luxemburg, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Slovenia, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey and the USA. By using a system of recirculating water and a variety of water plants which are meant to clean and filter the water naturally, Biotop has managed to create luxurious beautiful pools without the harmful effects of chemicals and overly priced water filtering systems. Everything is kept natural and green, blending with the environment and offering thus a greener,safer solution.
