A mineral pool system opens up the opportunity to create a mineral bathing destination in your backyard. The luxurious water quality offers home owners a lifestyle that could traditionally only be sourced in spas, resorts and natural occurring springs.
The Benefits of Mineral Systems
When a bather swims in a mineral pool there is a noticeable improvement in the feel of the water when compared to a normal chlorinated pool. The bather may experience the benefits such as feeling more relaxed and easing of sore muscles. Certainly, the skin and hair feels moisturised and if they have sensitive skin they may not experience the usual itch or tenderness.
There have been a number of scientific studies around the use of Magnesium chloride that have recorded the effects this composition has on the human body. Evidence suggests that when bathing in magnesium enriched water, magnesium will be absorbed through the skin (transdermal therapy) and offer the bather the following benefits:
* Soothe the skin, relieving those with sensitive skin to enjoy a swim
* Detoxify the skin and body, by way of relaxing the nervous system. Perfect for those facing anxiety and stress in their day to day lives
* Softens and smooths the water, enhancing the bathing experience
Magnesium also has several other advantages when used in swimming pools:
* The water is softer – One of the biggest benefits is the quality of the water.
* Equipment and its components will not be damaged by strong chemicals that can wear down moving mechanisms and plastic parts over time.
* Non corrosive – Mineral water is not corrosive
* Highly compatible with all pool types – Mineral is a suitable sanitising agent for all types of pools as it has no ill effects on the interior surface.
* Eco friendly – As the chlorine levels are so low, the water is much safer for the environment.
A mineral system still has to use chlorine in conjunction with mineral to sanitise the water adequately.
The Difference Between Salt and Mineral Pool Systems?
Salt and mineral systems are very similar, the difference is saltwater pools work with a combination of salt and chlorine whereas mineral pools work with minerals and chlorine.
The saltwater chlorinator converts salt to chlorine which reduces the need of having to use high doses of traditional chlorine in your pool. A mineral pool system works by using minerals that are converted via the same process into small doses of chlorine. Both salt and mineral work well to sanitise the water, they kill bacteria and prevent algae.
The water clarity of both systems is much alike but the water quality of a mineral pool is far superior. Mineral pools use less chlorine to sanitise the water than a saltwater system does.
