Hi Pat

I don't anything about Poolsan but I do know that a lot of the people around the Girne area have installed the Watermaid which is based on granular salt and from memory works in a similar way to a water softener.

Is the Poolsan system the one which works by using copper? If so I seem to remember about 2/3 years ago people were saying they weren't having much luck with them ie. water turning green.

Hi Pat. Karen may be thinking of 'Floatron'. See it here: http://www.floatron.co.uk/index.htm 'Poolsan' is a chlorine alternative. See that here: http://www.poolsanuk.com/ENGLISH/index.html



I was planning on using one or both methods and would be very interested in hearing of experiences from members who have used the same.

Hi

Yes I tried poolsan last year as my sis used it in her pool in South Africa. Although it worked there, it does not work here, as the weather here is a lot hotter than there (bizarrely enough). Not only did it NOT do the job, it worked out really expensive and after only 4 months I had to switch to chlorine.

Friends of our used Poolsan and ended up having to retile the pool because the stuff reacted with the paint in the tiles. Shame because the water felt and looked lovely until the reaction with the paint became evident.

Poolsan has been under test in Malta where the weather conditions are similar to Cyprus. The test took place in the Hiltonís first eco-friendly hotel. Following the results of these test the Hilton are in the process of rolling it out on a worldwide bases

The problem with the tiles was caused in fact an issue with the wrong type of bricks used in the constructions of the steps. The steps where replace at Poolsan expense and there have been no known occurrence of this happening any here else.

Hi started using this back in April after using a mate's pool that had it in and i am very pleased. Don't find it expensive as you dont need much. I put in about 200ml of poolsan a month and about 300g of the regenerator powder every week and pool is always crystal. had no problems with tiles or concrete and water is very nice to swim in

Hi Simbas,



We use poolsan and have done for the last 5months, its fantastic. Our pool has never turned green, its always clean and when the kids use it they end up not getting red eyes and poorly ears. Also with having doggies, they obviously would prefer a swimming pool to a small doggie bowl full of water and can drink from the pool without being sick from a chlroine filled pool. Also we have a tank for the balance tank water, which is then recycled for the garden.



I hope this helps, the poolsan company in Girne are great, and they come and clean it every 3/4 days.
