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: Hybrid optics bring color imaging using ultrathin metalenses into focus

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.

But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...

Im Focus: Stem cell divisions in the adult brain seen for the first time

Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.

The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...

Im Focus: Interference as a new method for cooling quantum devices

Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters

Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...

Im Focus: Autonomous 3D scanner supports individual manufacturing processes

Let’s say the armrest is broken in your vintage car. As things stand, you would need a lot of luck and persistence to find the right spare part. But in the world of Industrie 4.0 and production with batch sizes of one, you can simply scan the armrest and print it out. This is made possible by the first ever 3D scanner capable of working autonomously and in real time. The autonomous scanning system will be on display at the Hannover Messe Preview on February 6 and at the Hannover Messe proper from April 23 to 27, 2018 (Hall 6, Booth A30).

Part of the charm of vintage cars is that they stopped making them long ago, so it is special when you do see one out on the roads. If something breaks or...
