As the world embraces Elon Musk’s ground breaking lithium powered Tesla batteries and electric hybrid cars, de-bate is raging about whether there is enough of this natural resource in current reserves and resources to meet future demand.
In fact, with an estimated production rate of 500,000 cars per year in the latter half of this decade, Tesla says it alone will require “today’s entire worldwide production of lithium ion batteries”.
With everything from cars to smartphones, laptops and power tools reliant on lithium to operate, the increasing demand for the lightest metal on the periodic table is already having an impact on Australia’s spa market.
“We are already seeing a global shortage of lithium hypochlorite, the most common sanitiser used today in spas,” says Waterco’s National Key Accounts Manager, Gary Beecroft. “The shortage is caused mainly by the increase in the demand of lithium hydroxide/carbonate for batteries.”
This shortage has essentially stopped the supply of lithium hypochlorite to the spa market, leaving spa owners with limited options to maintain the health and clarity of spa water.
“Poppits is one of the few products that have already been designed to sanitise spas using hydrogen peroxide to oxidise the bacteria and organic materials in the water,” Gary explains. “However, unlike traditional lithium hypo-chlorite spa sanitisers, Poppits does not contain chlorine or bromine, which is ideal for asthmatics and people with sensitive skin.”
Free of harsh chemicals and chemical by-products Poppits is the latest ultimate water management system for spa and pool sanitisation. Developed by Waterco, this system uses advanced oxidisation to purify spa and pool water. Advanced oxidisation essentially raises the levels of active oxygen in the water, resulting in the removal of bacterial threats. “Endorsed by the National Asthma Council Australia, and the Asthma and Respiratory Foundation NZ as the ‘Sensitive Choice’ in pool and spa sanitisation, Poppits spa care range is specially formulated to be gentle on skin, kind to asthmatics, and good for the environment,” says Gary.
Most of us are familiar with that chemical smell when walking into a swim centre – and you may also know the sting of chlorine in your eyes, and the unpleasant taste when you accidentally find some pool water in your mouth.
Most spa and pool sanitisation options, such as chlorine, lithium / bromine and salt chlorination, give spa and pool water these characteristics. This can make swimming in your backyard spa and pool an unpleasant experience at times, especially for those who suffer allergies.
Peroxsil395 is an odourless and tasteless spa and pool water sanitiser that uses the power of oxygen to give you clean and clear spa and pool water.
Read more about how Peroxsil395 works so you can see why this method results in completely pure water free of odours and taste:
Peroxsil395 uses the process of oxidisation to purify water
Using Peroxsil395 to increase the oxygen levels in the water is the principle of the oxidisation process, this process removes bacterial threats more effectively than any other method currently on the market.
And the best thing – oxidisation produces no harmful by products, hence why there is no nasty smell or taste, and why it has full recommendation from the National Asthma Council Australia
The by-products of Peroxsil395 are water and oxygen
Pure water and pure oxygen are free from odours and taste – this is why the oxygen and water produced as by-products of the oxidisation process utilised by Peroxsil395 are chemically pure and therefore without detectable taste or smell.
It does not contain any chemical or compounds that can cause irritation, or can be smelt or tasted
The main by-products of the oxidisation process are water and oxygen, which do not irritate skin, eyes and lungs like the by-products of other sanitisation methods like traditional chlorine or bromine.
Only hydrogen peroxide has a taste, but in Peroxsil395 it is used in such small amounts that it cannot be detected by our tastebuds.
So there you have it – Peroxsil395 is a fantastic option for anyone who wants a spa or pool that is chlorine free, taste free, odour free and enriched with oxygen!
