Pool Water Conversion

There are several ways to sanitize pools, all with different characteristics and benefits. Sometimes, a pool water conversion is necessary for your health or convenience.

A pool water conversion is not difficult when you know your family’s needs, how much you’re willing to spend and the amount of effort you wish to put into it. Each method has its benefits.

Magnesium Pool Water Conversions

This is your most environmentally friendly option and all thanks to the power of the sun.

Studies have shown that absorbing magnesium chloride through the skin (transdermal) is one of the most effective ways for the body to acquire and maintain healthy levels of the vital mineral.

Many Australians take magnesium through dietary supplements to help prevent or alleviate body aches. But magnesium is also responsible for important cellular processes in the body, supporting detoxification and reducing stress. It even promotes energy and healthy skin. Your pool will be gentler on skin, hair and eyes as chloromine levels are kept to a minimum. It works like a magnet, helping rid the water of impurities and organic debris.

Sunsetter Pools & Spas are experts in pool water conversions. Put simply, here are the steps to convert:

1. Install the hydroxinator.

2. Add glass filtration media to your filter.

3. Test the water.

4. Add minerals to your pool.

5. Turn on the filtration system.

6. Your pool is ready for swimming!

Salt Chlorinators

Salt chlorinators use an electrolytic cell to sanitise your pool by adding a small amount of salt to the water. This converts the chloride into chlorine, killing bacteria and harmful microorganisms. Saltwater pools eliminate red eyes and skin irritations that may be caused by chlorine.

There is minimal maintenance using this device that runs in conjunction with your filtration pump. The latest chlorinators offer remote monitoring and control via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. Some even have smart sensors that automatically regulate the amount of chlorine.

How it works:

1. Water containing sodium chloride enters the cell.

2. Electric charge is applied to electrolytic plates, turning chloride ions into gas.

3. Chlorine gas dissolves into water.

4. Water with pure chlorine returns to your pool.
