The founder of modern medicine, Hippocrates, first coined the word “thalassotherapy” to describe the therapeutic effects of saltwater. Like his fellow Greeks, the famed physician knew all about the health benefits of this mineral-rich water, regularly bathing in man-made pools filled with salty seawater. Today, you’ll find plenty of scientific and anecdotal stories about salt water soothing muscular conditions, alleviating asthma, and improving skin disorders including dermatitis and eczema.
While more Australian pool owners have made the switch from chlorine to saltwater chlorination systems, a growing number are taking the next step by adding Element Mineral Blended Salts. Designed to enhance your bathing experience on every level, this magnesium-based solution not only softens water – making it ideal for people with sensitive skin conditions – but also makes it sparkle like never before.
Zodiac’s Clearwater DUO
Whether you are currently using traditional saltwater chlorination, or you manually dose liquid or granular chlorine, converting to a mineral salt system is easy.
Exclusive to Swimart, Clearwater DUO is a clever chlorinator that allows you to easily switch between normal pool salt and mineral blended salts. Bringing all the health benefits of a saltwater chlorinator and a mineral purifying system together in one compact unit, this new generation chlorinator dramatically improves bather experience by leaving pool water fresher, gentler and softer.
The chlorinator’s software has been designed to adapt to use traditional salt or switch over to the increasingly popular Element Mineral Blended Salts. The great thing is that you can switch over at any time and, because of the flocculent effect of magnesium chloride, it will also keep your pool water crystal clear.
Special features of Clearwater DUO include:
- Reverse polarity cell prevents build up and keeps maintenance to an absolute minimum
- Mineral purifying chamber that releases minute levels of copper and silver
- Copper is an age-old algaecide used in many applications for treating algae growth
- Silver is a bactericide that has been used for millennia to purify water for drinking
- Easy set up and operate control panel with warning and indicator lights
It’s important to note that adding Element Mineral Blended Salts to your pool water will increase its magnesium content, which will contribute to hardness levels (commonly tested for as 'calcium hardness') when having a water test conducted. It is important that you mention to your local Swimart pool shop that you are using a mineral blend so they are aware of this change in water chemistry.
