We've only had Zerochlor and love it. Friends who have used our pool say it is much better than pools with chlorine as there's no smell and it doesn't dry and irritate the skin. It's really easy to use and keep levels in check and the guys at the store are also really helpful. Sorry if this sounds like and advert for Zerochlor but we're really pleased with it!

smashing stuff! I've only got one of those 'easy up' plastic pools just now but the Zerochlor is great - water crystal clear - no smell - no sore eyes or dry skin. Give it a try you won't be dissapointed!

It has a downside as well!



What are you going to do with all the extra time you have now you don't have to clean your pool so often or make those essential visits to the hospital with chlorine and PH related ailments?



I just sit by my crystal pool and have an extra beer - but I am still working on the problem!!!

Is Zerochlor more expensive than chlorine? If so, but how much for a 600 + tonne pool

Hi millzer.



Depending on how you wanted to use zerochlor will determine the cost.



you can use it as a 100% none chlorine addative for your pool,which will work out around 15 to 20% more cost than chlorine.



Or you can use it with 10% chlorine and you will be well under the cost of what it is for useing chlorine.



I hope this partly answers your curiosity, plus you must take into account the health issues ,and if your long term health is important to you then maybe 15 to 20% more cost is really nothing!



Cheers

Hi Zerochlor, thanks for the info. it sort of answers my question and sort of doesn't, because with a 600 tonne pool I have no idea how much the chlorine element alone costs in order to work out how much extra in real hard cash Zerochlor will cost. It's a communal pool and all i know it that our man company pay XX amount to a pool firm for monthly maintenance.



here are you based? Contact details please?

Currently experimenting on one pool with zerochlor, initial findings and results are extremely promising.

Not sure I particulary agree with the hard sell on zerochlor and the constant putdown on chlorine.

I believe time and long term results will give us the answer, most new products in any field tend to be impressive, I believe that is a result of good marketing and customer expectations.

Good Luck to zerochlor.

hi millzer



Were based in catalkoy.



coming from girne towards malpas hotel were on the right in the new row of shops just before you would turn right to go to malpas or just opposite before bow thai restaurant. contact details and website are all in my profile here.



also im sorry i cant help you with the cost,as i dont know what the cost of chlorinating your pool is costing,but if you know well i suppose you could add 15 to 20% or if you wished to use it with 10% chlorine you would come in well under the cost of useing just chlorine.

i would rather you use just zerochlor.but i suppose its all about money and not health! or is it ?

Bought some this week as the watermaid I have is proving very expensive to run in the summer months and I still had algae growing on the grout.Followed the instructions from the guys at zerochlor and overnight the difference was amazing,even had to hoover because of the amount of crap on the floor,the following day it was crystal clear and even had to hoover again.

Another plus....we have our 2 blonde haired nieces stopping with us for the summer holidays and they were covered in spots,we thought it was heat rash but it turns out it was the chlorine,after 2 days in the pool with zerochlor the spots had gone,but the down side is their beautiful blonde hair now has a green tinge,apparantly due to the copper in the liquid,it will wash out and the pro's outweigh the cons.

If I could I would give it a Neg Nick 9/10 (sorry Nick)

We started our pool with Zerochlor and still love it! Our friends who have used "chlorine pools" and ours all comment on how nice ours is to use - one even commented that she can open her eyes under water without them stinging. Once up and running it is so easy to use and maintain and the man we deal with at Zerochlor (sorry, I'm very rude as I still don't know your name) is always so polite and helpful. The other plus side is that our dogs both think the pool is a giant water bowl and it is completely safe for them to drink

Don't forget that the backwash water from a chlorine free pool is excellent for the garden, and clean water for the garden is at a premium on the Island, the regen used with zerochlor in the backwash water is especially good for flowering plants

Sorry about the late responce,i missed this thread.



if your asking about yearly cost of useing zerochlor in your pool,around 8 bottles maybe 9 and around 50kg of regen/oxodizer.

cost per bottle of zerochlor is 22 regen price per 25kg is 80.

you could start useing right away even if your pool is chlorinated when you arrive.

As for pool cleaning companies useing our product there are a few,what area are you in then i can offer to you one of the cleaning companies.



NEXT YEAR ZEROCHLOR WILL BE MAINTAINING POOLS!



yes i know i said i wouldnt be maintaining pools,but we have had so many people and customers asking us to maintain,i have decided to set up a pool mainainance side to the business next year.

NN. you could use zerochlor even though you have 18 months supply of chlorine,1 way to use it is with your chlorine,but youll then have maybe 5 years supply of chlorine as youll only use 10% chlorine as a oxodizer with zerochlor, it would be defeating the object really as you wouldnt be 100% chlorine free,but at least you wouldnt be wasteing your poison,ooops sorry NN, i mean chlorine!



would be good to see how my product fairs with a NN score



10/10 maybe?

yes,it would of been copper,it happens when the pool is over dosed,as some people who have now started to maintain there own pools and didnt have any equipment to test for the copper levels did tend to over dose,hopefully now we have very good copper test strips for sale,the people who are maintaining there own pools wont over dose!

Hi David

What time are you open till on wednesday as i have a full schedule up to about 4.00pm. I have banged on about your product so much that like you i have people asking me to do pool maintenance. with your product i feel it is time to get this up and running and with TRNCVaughan a big advocate of the product it has got to be a winner if the price is right. Can you email me off board with prices please and how much i would need for 8 pools at present.Would need test strips



Many thanks

Steve

Hello again rdsteve.



were open each day from 9am until 6pm.



i will be in the office on wednesday and rather than emailing you prices it would be better to discuss face to face costings,if thats ok with you?

Our prices are very favorable to pool maintainance companies.

You say you have 8 pools at present,would you be looking to buy for the 8 pools for the whole year or to just buy month by month? as it will determine the price?



I think it would be better if you dropped by the shop.Also we now have test strips made for our product,a little expensive but we know they work.

Algae are microscopic plants which can literally transform your pool water from clear blue to the appearance of a stagnant pond in 24 hours. They are typically introduced into the pool by airborne spores. Onset is quite common after thunder storms, especially if the pool water temperature is high. Rain showers can wash airborne dried algae spores out of the air and into your pool were they are immediately supplied with moisture at a favourable temperature. Algae flourishes at water temps above 14C.

Another theory is that the rain adds nutrients to the water and the lightning frees up nitrogen which feeds the algae.

i knew you would have a sensible explanation,i really couldnt give a answer to the customers,other than maybe the rain could contribute to making the pool Green overnight.

Hi just read all your feed back we have a villa in Ozonkoy with a watermaid salt pool from what I read it can be used with this system. We are coming out in October so will look you up and give it a try. From what I read your product sounds very promising. How much would I require to use on an 8x4 pool roughly?

Hi Smity



for a 8 x 4 swimming pool you would need 1 x 1 litre of zerochlor,cost is 22,1 litre is enough to dose around 50.to 60,000 litre pool for roughly 1 month,yes zerochlor can be used in conjunction with a watermaid system,but to be honest,if useing zerochlor,theres no need to also use the watermaid system.



Are you useing a small amount of chlorine with the watermaid system at the moment? im thinking maybe you want to continue useing the watermaid system and use zerochlor instead of the chlorine your useing at the moment with the watermaid?

im not to clued up on the watermaid system im sorry to say,but i do know the 2 can work together.



as your comming into catalkoy from the mountain road and your approaching the malpas Hotel turning on the left,we are in the row of shops just after the malpas left turning,almost opposite BowThai restaurant.

Great thanks Zee we have a pool company looking after it,but i will get some of your product in october and give it them to add, they can then adjust what ever they need to do. Bacically as far as I understand the watermaid turns the salt into chlorine but ont in a very small quantiy also involveds copper but not sure how. Leave it to the people that know thats my motto..

smity,id just like to add,if you are thinking of useing zerochlor aswell as your watermaid system and as you have just said the watermaid system makes copper,youll have to check and make sure the copper levels are not going to be too high.

We do have copper test kits at the shop.

Hello Q.



im sorry but at the moment we do not look after or maintain pools,as from next year we will be maintaining pools.

our price for a 8 x 4 pool will be around the same price as the chlorine maintainance pool companies are charging now for dosing your pool with chlorine,but with us youll get a 100% non chlorine pool,useing zerochlor.



Happy chlorine free swimming folks!

Hi All,

I have an 8x4 pool and used to clean it twice aweek and up untill july 29 I used a Watermaid to chloronate the pool.However, since July 29 I have turned off the WM and have been using Zerochlor and with a little amount of chlorene,I think around 50 grams added over the last 3 months the water has remained crystal clear and I have only cleaned it 4 times over the said period ,simply to hover up the dust that the rain and wind brings, and guess what I have not added any adittional Zerochlor .

I plan to close down the filtration system at the end of september until end of Feb next year I will therefore add another One litre of Zerochlor which I believe will keep the pool crystal clear over that period.

OH by the way the electricity that I have save by shutting down the watermaid has in cash terms paid for the Zerochlor,GRRREAT.
