100-Year-Old Pool Technology and Naked Ankles

When a natural disaster occurs I’m glad that chlorine  is there to disinfect broken water delivery systems and keep disease and infections at bay. Typhoid and dysentery suck.

I’m also glad that draining swimming water every few days is no longer popular, especially after a Brown University grad student applied hyperchlorite of lime (sic) to 2 liters of pool water at a concentration of 1 ppm to a 70,000 gallon swimming pool in 1910. That’s when the idea of sterilizing pool water over dumping the water came into fashion, along with the viewing of ladies’ ankles.  Oh my! 

Pool sanitization chemistry is about as sexy as the glimpse of naked ankles, so I’ll let you undress your own research on pool sanitization chemistry. (Hint—search this blog for most pool and spa sanitization answers.)

 

After too many years in the pool biz and the chemicals that keep pools disinfected and sparkling, I’ve developed a physical inability to tolerate most synthetic or manufactured chemicals.  As a matter of fact, last week I asked my wife to toss in some extra bleach into the white laundry because my t-shirts looked dreary.  Excited with the palate of pure white, I covered my bare ankles with the just-laundered white socks and my bare chest with a brilliant white t-shirt.  Lookin’ sharp and clean.  Before lunch, I ripped the white off of me and jumped into the shower.  Oh it wasn’t for what it might sound like to those with love on their mind—it was the red rash covering my chest and ankles—one of my typical reactions to anything chlorinated.

This is why I build and sell the non-chlorine pool disinfection system through my business Riptide Alchemy, LLC . I have zero interest in selling product that doesn’t work for sooooooo many reasons. 

1)      I want your swimming pool to be safe enough to have my beloved grandchildren frolic in the water;

My really cute granddaughter!

2)      Totally not interested in a law suit because you developed some freaky infection from funky water;

3)      The planet does not need more man-made chemicals ;

4)      Our ocean’s are at risk, and because they are downstream from everything, chemicals eventually find their way into the waters. (Visit my wife’s blog www.Neptune911.wordpress.com for more about our seas.)

5)      And there is some pretty convincing evidence that chlorinated water and us in it are not a perfect union.

One day, wife and I sat on the beach watching some wicked waves rip tides back and forth.  The energy was powerful. We could smell the negative ions filling the air.  We looked at each other, knowing that we would begin a more earth friendly business in the future that was based in ionic exchange and we simultaneously said, “Riptide Alchemy.”

It was a poetic way of explaining how my pool disinfection system works.  I pair a copper electrode with a silver electrode, then inject a low DC current into the alloy anodes. The ion charged water cycles through the system, naturally purifying itself.

This exclusive and unique design features 100% alloy to ionize your pool water. The amount of ions injected is precisely monitored by a computerized LCD meter and control knob built into each power center. Quality is what sets my ionization system apart from the others.

So here comes my blatant sales pitch—if you call my cell (505/690-4729) I can offer this product at $999 plus freight (and tax for NM and California residents).  And now that you have my private cell phone number, that means you can call me for free consultations with regards to the Riptide Pool Disinfection System™ for your family’s fun and healthy swim time.
