Hello Tavi1 welcome ! we have used Zerochlor now for 2 years and are more than pleased with the results ! Like any pool maintenance it takes a while to perfect but easy to maintain when there. We originally moved to Zerochlor as it is kinder to Mrs Snakes asthma and the pool always looks "sparkley clean" Although i maintain my own pool I understand Dave at Zerochlor (0533 8305302) is offering a package at similar costs to Chlorine pools which I think is very good ! regards Barry

We made the switch to Zerochlor on our two pools. They supply the product and do the pool maintenance which we cannot fault.

Our pools were both turning green and within a week, Zerochlor had them sorted out. Credit where credit is due.

Can't wait to give chlorine free swimming a try, but only when it warms up a bit !

We use Zerochlor and cant fault it. Dave arranged the maintenance and again no complaints. My first swim in the pool this year was March, and it was definately different, apart from it being on the cold side, the water 'felt softer' and my skin didnt dry white. There is also a huge difference in the appearance of the pool, as Snakes said, the water is sparkley clean.

Tavi1.



If you would like any info regarding zerochlor you may go to http://www.zerochlor.co.uk



Once on the website you can speak direct to some one in zerochlor and find out what ever info you may well need to maybe help you with the change over if that is what you would like,there is a live chat box on the bottom right side of the webpage as your looking at it.

Some 1 has left a message on the zerochlor website regarding a 10x5 pool,sorry that no 1 answerd your question but here is the answer.



For zerochlor to maintain that size of pool as a zerochlor pool it would cost 65 per month



A 8x4 would be 55 per month.

Hi Tavi... as mentioned on another thread we have been using zerochlor for six months and no complaints.



I think the overriding factor for us was simply health related or perhaps that should read skin related. Most of the testimonials we read expressed their delight to an end of ear-aches and rashes ,especially with young children (who will often spend all day in the pool) and for those with sensitive skin.. since commissioning zerochlor.



Regards Joseph

The other aspect which should be mentioned is that there is some form of complacency in using Chlorine as the majority (not all) of pool maintenance people tend to turn up now and then and chuck in a bucket of chlorine which sorts most things out including your skin ! No doubt that if tended properly a pool with chlorine is good and adequate but in my opinion yesterdays technology and definately not as good as Zerochlor ! as Lor49 says the water is softer and clearer just like spring water compared to tap !!! regards barry

Just starting with Zerochlor. Zerochlor added 3 months ago and nothing since. The chlorine level has not dropped in this time so I am reluctant to add another bottle. Pool looks great and I have been using it for past 2 months. Did anyone else have this problem on changing to Zerochlor.

The lifespan of Zerochlor can be longer than expected ! the ideal situation would have been to reduce the chlorine level to almost nil then start Zerochlor. Not a bad thing because Zerochlor needs an Oxygeniser which chlorine can do for now which takes a long while to reduce ! you will need some potassium monosulphate to replace chorine to oxygenise your pool when chlorine finally expires ! you will only need minimal amounts of this chemical say half a kilo per month ! regards Barry

re msg 11 - 65 p/m - does that include the bottles of zerochlor and other chemicals as required or is that extra. Know someone who has been thinking of changing their private pool but are back in UK just now and don't think they are a member on here.

scoty message 22



65 pounds sterling per month means for a 10x5 pool maintenance including all chemicals,2 times per week visits in the summer,1time per week visit in the winter.



When zerochlor told me his prices i thought he was going crazy,but those are his prices and where as everything has gone up in price in cyprus and the world,zerochlor has held his prices the same for the last 2 years and still no change in his prices.



He deserves a pat on the back helping us all to swim chlorine free so inexpensive.

After 7 years I have emptied my pool for the first time to enable replacement of old concrete edgings with travertine (spelling?) and regrouting for cosmetic value. The workers were astonished by the cleanliness and sparkle of the tiles, these not needing acid cleaning, which brought the comment "who ever looks after this pool knows something about chemical levels and PH". I responded that I know nothing about pool care and it is all down to me using David's Zerochlor. I can confirm that I too have enjoyed all the benefits listed by others and overall we as a family spend more time in the pool as it is a far more enjoyable place and much time, effort, and money is saved. For example, I have not had to use a brush within the pool once in the last 12 months. The boss of these workers wants me to get him some Zerochlor !

Several people have left questions on the zerochlor website during the night,i cannot answer you direct as you left no email address.

1st question,where is the best place to buy zerochlor and will the shop be open on thursday.

The only place to buy zerochlor is in catalkoy from zerochlor shop which is opposite the alpet petrol station or almost opposite bow thai restaurant,and the shop is also open on thursday.



The person asking about ,can zerochlor be used in conjunction with a floatron,your floatron should be doing the job if the solar panel on it is getting enough sunlight each day,if it is not working so well maybe you need a new mineral electrode which will last approximately 1- 3 swimming seasons,personally i would use 1 or the other,but if you wish to try the 2 together,by all means do,then you can let us know your findings in combining the 2.

The person who has asked. Woke up this morning and the pool has a slight orange tinge to the top of the pool,will zerochlor get rid of this.

I think alot of people will have woke up this morning to a orange colour dust on there pools,its maybe a fine sand blowing in from africa or carried in the rain,if your pool is not on overflow,put it on overflow and the dust should get carried off to the overflow channels,no need for zerochlor,unless you wish to change to it,zerochlor wont protect your pool from fine sand or dust in the air!

When useing the floatron you should only need to oxodize the pool occasionly,there are a few ways to oxodize your pool.

1 being with a little chlorine.



2 being with potasium monopersulphate,AKA regen.



Chlorine is a very good oxodizer but of course can be harmful if used in great amounts.



Maybe only around 50grams weekly should be used if you have a floatron.

Hi Looseboots.



You should be looking for target readings of .3 PPM,of protective minerals when doing your ION tests.



If the ion reading climbs to .5 PPM or more, remove the Floatron from the water for a week and monitor ion level weekly.



The reasons for ion testing is to initially determine that it is safe to reduce chlorine, and subsequently to establish a floating schedule which results in a steady ion reading of approximately .3 PPM.



The pH level you should be aiming for is 7.2 - 7.8. For some reason the floatron works well or better at slightly higher PH levels.

WHO SAID ITS NOT EASY TO LOOK AFTER YOUR OWN POOL !



Happy almost chlorine free swimming looseboots

Message 38. john



you are quite correct,that is why all davids customers are always advised as well as yourself it is always better to under dose than over dose,whether it be with zerochlor or chlorine,but the beauty of zerochlor if you do overdose and happen to have blonde hair and you get a tinge of green in your hair,you can wash it out with either fairy washing up liquid or tomato kethup.



But with us being a professional pool company we would never over dose a pool with either zerochlor or chlorine.

The only people who do over dose is the folk who do not know what they are doing but pretend to know and then blame the tools !!

Mesage 40 goonerstan.

Nothing needs changing,no pipes,no pumps.no filters,nothing,everything can stay just the way it is and you can just use the product.

Message 41.

We would have to come out and take a look at your pool,as giving a price here may well be over priced,so it would be easier to price if we see the pool.



Happy chlorine free swimming.

Loose Boots: yes, you can certainly use Zerochlor in conjunction with a Floatron but you shouldn't need much of it, as with chlorine. Check the mineral electrode in your Floatron - if it is down to the thickness of a pencil then it needs replacing. Contact me at: sherwood@agobard.com if you need a new electrode - we are the Floatron distributors here in Cyprus.

Thanks Sonmez,i shall pass on your message.



As you know david works with Pooltech on all of the zerochlor pools,so it would be a team effort and without such a great team all of this could not be possible.



Thanks for trusting Davids product and pooltech to care for your pool in the way it should be cared for.
