Hydroxypure – Chlorine Free Pool

Tuesday, 25th June 2013

In creating the Hydroxypure sanitisation system, Waterco has adopted technology which has revolutionised drinking water treatment, simplified the process and applied it to treating pool water.

Created by Gold Coast-based inventor Nick Briscoe in conjunction with international water treatment and swimming pool solutions manufacturer Waterco Ltd, Hydroxypure is a truly chlorine-free water treatment system. It’s free of odours and taste, is soft and gentle on the skin – what’s more, no shower is required after swimming. It’s been described by users as “just like a refreshing swim in a natural spring.”


In creating the Hydroxypure sanitisation system, Waterco has adopted technology which has revolutionised drinking water treatment, simplified the process and applied it to treating pool water.

Hydroxypure uses a combination of ozone and hydrogen peroxide to create one of the most powerful oxidisers in nature. Based on the Peroxone Treatment Process (PTP), which combines hydrogen peroxide (H202) and hybrid ozone (03), Hydroxypure essentially ‘turbocharges’ the sanitisation process.

Hydroxypure’s hybrid ozone technology stimulates the action of the sun – it produces a high intensity wavelength of light which produces a clean form of ozone that’s free of impurities. The natural flocculating effect that ozone has on water greatly increases the capability of the filtration system to be able to filter out oxidised contaminants in the water, leaving the pool water clean and crystal clear.

Enhanced oxygen

The use of two disinfectants (ozone and hydrogen peroxide) actively works in harmony to increase active oxygen in the water. The synergy of the two disinfectants ensures the water environment is safe, without the creation of harmful chemical by-products.

The end result is a swimming pool that’s totally chlorine free and enriched with oxygen.

PTP is known as the new water treatment process of the 21st century, because of its superior ability to remove bacterial threats – better than any other oxidation processes currently available on the swimming pool market.


Hydroxypure tests the pool water and automatically maintains adequate levels of hydrogen peroxide within the swimming pool for continual sanitisation of the pool.

Additionally, the Hydroxypure system will respond to the different demands, by automatically adjusting dosing requirements for high bathing loads, hot weather, rain events and when pools are topped up. The pool water’s pH level is also automatically adjusted, protecting the swimming pool and swimmers from unfavourable swimming conditions.

MultiCyclone technology

The Hydroxypure system also incorporates Waterco’s award-winning filtration technology, the MultiCyclone. This centrifugal pre-filtration device performs a dual role of mixing the ozone into the water and providing adequate contact time with the incoming pool water, maximising the strength of the Peroxone reaction.

MultiCyclone also pre-filters incoming sediments, reducing the workload on the filtration system and, in turn, reducing filter maintenance leading to a reduction in water usage associated with backwashing and filter cartridge cleaning.

Sensitive Choice® approval

The only water sanitisation system approved by the Sensitive Choice® program of the National Asthma Council Australia, Hydroxypure is great news for swimmers, particularly those with allergies and asthma. Being chemical free, it’s also environmentally and pool friendly.
 

The Sensitive Choice® program encourages manufacturers and distributors to be asthma and allergy aware. It recognises companies which develop products that may be better choices for people with asthma or allergies. The blue butterfly logo helps consumers easily identify products and services that may reduce asthma and allergy triggers.

New or existing pools

An affordable solution that can be easily installed on new pool installations or easily retrofitted to salt or chlorinated pools, Hydroxypure’s key benefits include:

  • Chlorine & salt free water
  • No need to shower after swimming
  • Outstanding water clarity
  • Water enriched with oxygen
  • Fully automated sanitisation and pH control
  • Water saving
  • Stain-free splash marks on the glass pool fences
  • Extends the life of the pool surface and pool equipment
  • Minimal maintenance
