While Chlorine is the most conventional form of spa and pool sanitisation, there are a few alternatives that are gaining traction in the market – and with good reason! There are myriad benefits alternative methods of sanitisation can offer to spa and pool owners, especially those that do not contain or produce any harmful by-products.
One of these is Peroxsil395, which was developed in Australia to assist people with allergies – swimming without an eczema or Asthma flare-up is now a reality thanks to this development in sanitisation technology.
Let’s weigh up the pros and cons of using conventional Chlorine or new Peroxsil395 in your backyard spa or pool.
Chlorine has been on the spa and pool sanitisation scene since the 1930s – and to this day, the majority of spa and pool owners still use this method to keep their spa and pool water safe to swim in.
It involves regularly dosing the spa or pool water with chlorine (and sometimes other chemicals), plus monitoring the spa or pool for changes in pH and mineral balance.

Peroxsil395 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.
