ALGAETRON is a trouble free sanitizer that discharges copper and silver ions into your swimming water to kill bacteria, algae, and viruses. The ALGAETRON is very effective and safe unlike most sanitizers.

Kiss viruses, bacteria, and algae good bye with ALGAETRON! This water sanitizer, which installs in minutes, is weather-resistant and will banish high levels of expensive and toxic chemicals. In today's fast paced society, who has time to constantly test and maintain their swimming water? ALGAETRON allows for more time swimming with your family and eliminates dangerous chemicals. All you have to do is shock your water once a week and occasionally test your pool water! That's it!


ALGAETRON uses a low DC voltage current to scatter positively charged copper and silver ions into the water. Given that bacteria is negatively charged, these particles are drawn to the ions and are killed as the charge penetrates the cell walls. The destroyed microorganisms bundle together and are easily filtered. Even though fatal to bacteria, algae and viruses, ALGAETRON is completely safe for your family and friends.

Sometimes you can actually see the ALGAETRON working. If your pool water suddenly becomes noticeably whitened in color do not worry. When the pool water is properly filtered your pool water will be sparkling and properly sanitized. So you can spend more time swimming in your pool.

Simply put, ALGAETRON is safer. The chemically stable copper and silver electrode bars that generate ions do not create toxic chemicals nor do they create a hazard to swimmers. This means red irritated skin and eyes are history!

With ALGAETRON no residual chlorine is normally required to be added. For pool temperatures above 90F or for cloudy water after a storm, you can add chlorine to speed up the cleaning process. If needed for an extended period, only 0.4 ppm of chlorine is required. At this low level, there is not enough of the corrosive chemical chlorine to damage your pool liner, pipes or equipment.

Look at how much time and money you are spending on chemicals every year. Using ALGAETRON is inexpensive compared to chemical sanitizers and the upkeep task is reduced from twice daily to once weekly. Copper and silver ions are pH neutral so ALGAETRON will not change your water balance nor will the ions evaporate like chlorine and bromine.

DEADLY Effects of Chlorine

Chlorine was first added to your drinking water in the late 1800's. By 1904 chlorine was used in water treatment regularly and is still poisoning us today. When chlorine is added to your water, it joins with other compounds to form Trihalomethanes, or THMs. These chlorine byproducts, not only cause cell damage, but are highly carcinogenic. According to the US Council of Environmental Quality, people that consume chlorinated water have a 93% higher chance of cancer than those that do not.


Breast cancer, which now affects one in every eight women in North America, has recently been linked to the accumulation of chlorine compounds in the breast tissue. A study carried out in Hartford Connecticut, the first of it's kind in North America, found that, "women with breast cancer have 50% to 60% higher levels of organochlorines (chlorination byproducts) in their breast tissue than women without breast cancer"

Inhalation is a much more harmful means of exposure since chloroform the chlorine gas we inhale goes directly into our blood stream. Chlorine vapors are known to be a strong irritant to the sensitive tissue and bronchial passages inside our lungs. This is why it was used as a chemical weapon in World War II. The inhalation of chlorine is a suspected cause of asthma and bronchitis, predominantly in children.

Chlorine also has a very negative cosmetic effect, robbing your skin and hair of moisture and flexibility, resulting in a less youthful appearance. Just swim in a chlorinated pool and feel the harsh effects that chlorine has on your skin and hair.
