When you have a swimming pool that uses chlorine to destroy bacteria and make the water ‘safe’ to swim in, there are ways to reduce the amount of chlorine used. After all, this chemical and its by-products are actually hazardous to human health and is known to be carcinogenic, among other things. One way to reduce the need for so much of it is to ensure the pool is cleaned regularly. An automatic kreepy krauly can take care of this onerous chore, leaving you free to enjoy your leisure time.
While the automatic pool cleaner crawls around the pool gobbling up algae and debris, you may have time to read about other methods of reducing the toxic soup that you have to use in the pool. One way is to use a salt pool. This reduces the amount of chlorine only slightly and it can rust out any metal fittings. It can also have a detrimental effect on pool cleaners.
