PRODUCT SAFETY RECALL: ASTRALPOOL GAS HEATERS.
The concept of mineral pools might sound new, but they have been around for thousands of years in the forms of natural springs, lakes, and other mineral-dense water bodies. The popularity of mineral pools has increased over the last few years due to the health and wellness benefits they offer. They are incredibly beneficial and may help in alleviating pain, relieving stress, and improving the circulation of the blood.
For those of you that are not very familiar with mineral pools, a “Mineral Pool” is a generic term used for various products on the market, and it can be anything that isn’t a traditional saltwater swimming pool (100% sodium chloride). Technically, any mineral pool is a pool that uses a combination of different minerals (and may contain added salt/sodium) to create a more comfortable feel in the water.
Compared to your traditional saltwater pools that generate chlorine from the salt in the water (yes, saltwater pool systems contain chlorine), mineral pools use the minerals/salts in the blend to generate chlorine using the same process of electrolysis. See this guide for more details about the difference between different pool systems.
To put it simply, whilst the water clarity of saltwater and mineral systems is similar, the water quality and bather comfort of some mineral pools are far superior because of a reduction in chemical use and health properties of the minerals used.
Acquatherepé is a unique, patented blend of minerals that can be added to any swimming pool to replace traditional pool salt (sodium chloride). This unique blend of minerals softens the pool water. Bather’s experience feeling softer hair and skin. It is suitable for most salt chlorination systems and is best used with glass media filtration for superior results (but any filtration method can be used).
Whilst bathing you can absorb up to 500ml of water per hour of pool use and Acquatherepé’s unique blend will make you feel like you have just had a luxurious mineral bath benefiting your skin, hair, eyes and nervous system. This unique blend of minerals will also help prevent calcium build up on your pool equipment and provides additional stability to water balance.
*The removal of sodium aids in increasing mineral levels quickly and efficiently before swapping to regular use of Acquatherepé minerals for traditional salt-based pools and also allows Acquatherepé TRANSFORM to be used independently on liquid chlorine pool without adding sodium.
Many mineral blends claim to emulate the exact same benefits of the mineral waters you may find in nature, but in reality, these are best suited to the lakes, springs or seas they originate from. Unlike many competitor products, who harvest directly from the seas or lakes (where natural forces can greatly influence the mineral composition), we know exactly what minerals are in every bag. We acquire our salt from Olsson's who use the method called "solar evaporation". You can learn more about the process from this video.
Acquatherepé is an evenly-balanced unique blend that leverages a fixed combination of magnesium, sodium, borates and potassium minerals. All minerals—where possible—are sustainability and locally sourced. Acquatherepé is also bagged locally and distributed to all our dealers and outlets around the country.
Please note that all mineral systems regardless of brand have their own merits, so always talk to a pool professional to find out what kind of mineral system will suit you best. If you feel like experiencing the difference Acquatherepé can make you feel, we have small sample bags that you can try in your bath. Reach out to your local AstralPool dealer to get a sample!
