PoolCure water sanitation
Building of new pools
POOLCURE is a revolutionary range of chlorine-free swimming pool supplies designed for easy cleaning and maintenance of both domestic and commercial pools. And even if you currently use traditional chlorine-based swimming pool supplies, it's easy to switch – see our frequently asked questions section. SABS (South African Bureau of Standards) Tested POOLCURE is a saturated complex ionic aqueous solution containing copper, silver, zinc, aluminium and gold. The microscopic action of these natural mineral ions with the algae and bacteria are twofold. First, the algae and bacteria in the water are destroyed through a change in their enzyme processes as the ions break down their DNA structures and cell walls. Secondly, all these charged particles floc together so they can be trapped by a filter. The ions maintain a stable POOLCURE residual in the water until they are used up by this process.
Typically a swimming pool with a volume of 60,000 litres of water only needs to be dosed with up to one litre of POOLCURE every 4 weeks and up to 1Litre of POOLCURE Regenerator when the pool requires it. Much the same as one would shock dose a pool in times of need. That is when there is high pool traffic . During the low season the pool will use significantly less of both products with regenerator becoming unnecessary during the winter months.The pH needs to be tested using the POOLCURE Pooltester and maintained at between 7.0 and 7.2 with 7.0 being the desired target. The POOLCURE solution is dosed by pouring the dosage amount directly into the filter intake (weir). The POOLCURE Regenerator is also dosed by adding product into the weir while the filter is running. The POOLCURE Regenerator then needs to be left for 15 minutes before bathing can resume. The residual level of POOLCURE is to be monitored by testing the water for copper content, using the POOLCURE. The target level is 0.4-0.8mg/l of copper. The advantages and desired effect of this pool treatment solution will be to improve the quality of the swimming pool water and drastically reduce the exposure of swimmers and lifeguards to chlorine and its irritating and harmful effects such as asthmatic conditions.
