Mineral Swim FAQ's

How much would it cost to convert/manage my existing pool over 12-months?

Approximately $3,600.00 fully installed for an average-size pool and approximately $400 per year in mineral costs, for an average pool in a temperate climate. This cost may be lower in a cool climate and higher in a tropical climate. For the purposes of providing an indicative costing, 45,000 litres is the volume of an average-sized pool in Australia. People switching from chlorine pools require an ozone system with an integrated chlorinator, whereas people switching from salt pools require just an ozone unit. These two options vary slightly in cost also depending on pool size (bigger pools may require a more powerful ozone unit). Cost excludes any further savings that may be realised through reduced usage of electricity from running your chlorinator at a reduced level.

Can I use Mineral Swim minerals in my spa?

We’re currently testing Mineral Swim for use in spas with cartridge filters (normal high-flow filters commonly used with spas). This R&D is focusing on the effect of flocculants as they do their job and accumulate with other 'contaminants' (ie sand, dirt and hair). We don't anticipate any problems, but because of the way people use their spas differently to pools (on and off), we wanted to test and be sure. We can say the heat in spas has no bearing on the Mineral Swim system and that the water clarity and health benefits are the same.

Why do I need an Ozone Swim water purification unit? Does this really make a difference?

The minerals in Mineral Swim have major health benefits for people suffering from conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. They also hydrate the skin and act as a muscle relaxant. The extra benefits brought by ozone water purification include exceptional water clarity and hygiene. The ozone adds its own powerful sanitising/flocculant effect eliminating microbial contaminants such as bacteria, skin cells, viruses, urine, oils, chloramines and other organisms such as cryptosporidium and giardia (augmenting the flocculating effect of magnesium chloride). In conjunction with an effective pool cleaner – like a Dolphin robot – that removes particles from the bottom of the pool, your pool water will have exceptional clarity.

How does Mineral Swim help me use less swimming pool chemicals?

There are a number of ways the Mineral Swim system helps reduce the need for chemicals. The first is by using 100% natural Dead Sea minerals in conjunction with ozone water purification. Together these dramatically reduce the load on your chlorinator. In most instances, your chlorinator’s output will be halved. Secondly, the flocculation effect will make your filter more effective.

Where is the Mineral Swim system made?

The technology for the ozone water purification is designed and built in Australia. The minerals are 100% natural and imported from the Dead Sea.

Does the Mineral Swim system work in a salt or mineral swimming pool?

The Mineral Swim system works in any mineral or salt pool.

What is the benefit of combining Ozone Swim with Mineral Swim Minerals?

Together the ozone and minerals provide the safest, clearest and healthiest swimming water available. The minerals soothe and hydrate your skin, relax your muscles and flocculate the water, whilst the ozone provides one of the most effective sanitising agents in nature.
