Swimming Pool Skin Rash from Chlorine.

Is Chlorine Bad for Your Skin?

Yes.  This is common sense but if you would like to see the science behind this answer click here.  Alternatives to chlorine for swimming pool water sanitation are widely available and common in 2021.

Listed below are just a few quotes from scientific studies completed in the past.

"Highly reactive chlorine is one of the industrial waste products profitably disposed of by using people as garbage cans." (source).

"Chlorinated water alters and destroys unsaturated essential fatty acids (EFA's), the building blocks of human brains and central nervous systems." (source).

"When chlorinated water is run through a hose or carried in a pale followed by milk as in a. dairy, "very tenacious, yellowish, chemical deposits chemically similar to arterial plaque form"; with unchlorinated water this doesn't happen.

"Chlorine in swimming pools reacts with organic matter such as sweat, urine, blood, mucus, feces and skin cells to form more chloramines.  Chloroform risk can be 70 to 240 times higher in the air over indoor pools over outdoor pools.  Canadian researchers found that after an hour of swimming in a chlorinated swimming pool, chloroform concentration in the swimmers blood ranged from 100 to 1093 ppb.  If the pool smells very much of chlorine, don't go near it."  (source).







The ZeroChlor Pool System is the best decision a new pool owner can make when it comes to swimming pool design in 2020.  Thinking ahead is the key!
