Copper Sulphate: Chlorine Alternative in Swimming Pools

Child asthma solution comes from space – and the Greeks… ‘Following a warning from scientists linking asthma in children to indoor swimming pools, Allergy UK today awarded its “Seal of Approval” for a new alternative to chlorine. The award comes as hot tubs, spas, swimming pools and inflatable pools become the “must have” accessory as Britain swelters in the sun. The technology was discovered by the Greeks, and is used today by NASA for keeping drinking water clean in space. It works by deactivating bacteria, rather than aggressively killing it. Instead of chlorine, Pristine Blue uses a natural copper sulphate solution at levels permitted for use in drinking water. It has been approved in the US for use in all 52 States, and is used there in 600,000 pools and spas.’

. ‘Millions of British swimmers can now avoid bloodshot eyes following the Allergy UK “Seal of Approval” for Pristine Blue, a new alternative to chlorine. The Seal of Approval has been awarded to Pristine Blue for skin and respiratory irritation and as a safe alternative to chlorine treatments. This comes as hot tubs, spas and inflatable swimming pools become the “must have” home accessory for summer 2006.’
