Chlorine stains on the skin are not only aesthetically unpleasant when you spend time in the pool, they are also a sign of the negative effects that this product can have on your skin. Luckily, apart from this chemical, there are other ways to keep your pool clean and disinfected without harming your health and the health of your loved ones.
Non-chlorine pool treatments
You already know that chlorine damages the skin, hence the importance of protecting it properly. But if you want to be sure that your luxurious pool at home has an effective water treatment that is as harmless to you as possible, there are also other systems for treating your pool without chlorine.
Taking care of you and your loved ones is possible thanks to methods such as active oxygen, water purifiers, bromine or ultraviolet disinfection, natural pools or salt water.
However, the innovative Pure Pool Technology system that we use in Godo Pools for the water treatment of your luxury pool is the best you can find in the market. Why? Because it keeps the water disinfected and clean uninterruptedly by means of the three most efficient water purification methods available today:
- UV technology

Chlorine damage to the skin
The use of chlorine in our swimming pools poses a serious danger because, if the quantities of chlorine are not correct, we can suffer adverse damage such as chlorine irritation to the skin, eyes or other unpleasant reactions.
Chlorine causes the deterioration of the protective fatty layer of the epidermis, so the consequences of chlorine on the skin can be quite uncomfortable.
If our swimming pool uses this water treatment system, it is very important to moisturise our body and face after each swim, as this substance contains components that can cause chemical reactions, swelling, irritation and even loss of melanin in our skin.
With simple contact with water, the effects of chlorine on the skin can be immediate. And also on our eyes, and even our teeth! This is no joke. Chlorine burns on the skin and other parts of the body can be serious.
Chlorine in children and its consequences
If an adult’s skin is sensitive enough to this substance, imagine what chlorine does to a child’s skin.
Experts say that excess chlorine in swimming pool water can cause asthma and even damage the lungs of the youngest members of the household.
Also, bear in mind that they can swallow water frequently and this poses greater risks even when children are exposed to chlorine for short periods of time.
Simply inhaling it can already be harmful to them, as they can suffer from irritation of the mucous membranes of the eyes, nose and throat. This can result in coughing spells and even vomiting and worse in extreme cases.
Without causing alarm, experts recommend avoiding exposing children to chlorine. So, if you have the luxury of enjoying your pool at home and have a choice, you need an alternative water purification treatment to match. It is far more advisable, and will take far better care of your health and the health of your loved ones.
