Launch of UK’s first practical non-chlorine water treatment for swimming pools and spas

16.01.2006


Pristine Blue, the UK’s first practical non-chlorine water treatment for swimming pools and spas, is officially launched at the SPATEX exhibition on 6th Feb 2006 in Brighton.



Pristine Blue works using a natural copper sulphate solution used at levels safe enough to drink. Overnight, it can banish algae and bacteria, with no noxious odours, aggravated eyes or skin, and no damage to hair, costumes, pool liners or equipment.

Pristine Blue is already used in 600,000 US pools and now the EU has recognised its active ingredient as a disinfectant similar to chlorine. Britain’s HSE has approved its use, and it has the support of several allergy charities.


Pristine Blue has been piloted successfully in the UK, increasing bathing comfort and dramatically cutting maintenance and costs.

The launch event at SPATEX will provide an insight into this new alternative water treatment, vital in an age when pool managers must be seen to be reducing or removing any risks of toxic chemicals (to staff as well as bathers); be all-inclusive (ie allowing those with allergies to bathe); and, most of all, cost-conscious.

The buffet lunch briefing will be held between 12:00 and 2pm on the Monday of the SPATEX exhibition in Brighton (Mon 6th Feb 2006), Hilton Metropole Hotel, Seafront, Brighton, Sussex. UK.

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
