Miami, Florida (WiredPRNews.com) — EnviroGreen Global Solutions, Inc. will be presenting a new product next month that could replace dangerous chemicals used in pool maintenance and avoid the threats associated with them, according to William Billows, PhD, Chief Development Officer for EGS. A recent study from the University of Illinois has concluded that pool chlorination may lead to serious health risks because of chemical reactions between the chlorine and various contaminants, according to an article from PhysOrg.com
The study found that when consumer products such as cosmetics or sunscreen which are typically used in or around swimming pools mix with chlorine, they may become chemically modified and convert into toxic agents that can mutate genes, induce birth defects, accelerate the aging process, cause respiratory ailments, and even induce cancer after long-term exposures.
Dr. Billows explains, “Bahama Clear has proven to have 5,000% more residual protection than chlorine against bacterial infection in lab tests. When used properly, it kills more than 99.99% of bacteria and continues to provide residual protection against them for 21 days. No other disinfectant on the market can compare with this, and Bahama Clear carries none of the health risks associated with extended use of chlorine.”
“There are other strategic advantages to Bahama Clear compared to the standard antimicrobial chemicals as well,” Dr. Billows adds. “It is effective in low concentrations, works equally well at high and low temperatures, is non-volatile, and does not release toxic fumes, a dangerous hazard of chlorine use. As a non-oxidizing material, it is equally effective in the presence or absence of dissolved organic material. In addition, it can be used alongside conventional chlorine pool treatments at any concentration with no fear of hazardous interaction.”
Bahama Clear, which will be available for sale in August, presents a superior alternative or supplement to chlorine, as it is highly safe (EPA approved), effective, easier to use, and more cost-efficient. It’s also friendly to the environment and does not require expensive equipment, as other alternative disinfecting solutions (such as UV light) do.
