This 100% chlorine-free, bromine-free, odor-free sanitizing system is easy on sensitive skin while keeping water crystal clear and clean. And you won’t have to worry about it fading your bathing suit or damaging your hair. Free is a softer, gentler way to sanitize.
The Free sanitizing system is 100% chlorine and bromine-free. It is comprised of three main products that work together to keep your water sparkling clean and clear. Free is great for sensitive skin and is virtually odor-free. It is a biguanide-based spa water care system. It is an alternative to the BaquaSpa and Soft Soak lines of biguanide-b
ased spa care.
Biguanides (whose chemical name, polyhexamethylene biguanide, is abbreviated PHMB) were first developed as a pre-surgery antimicrobial scrub. Despite their aggressive desire to kill germs, biguanides are gentle on the skin and eyes. In fact, biguanides are used in some contact lens cleaning solutions. And because they reduce the surface tension of water, swimmers often comment that biguanide-treated water feels silky smooth.
Compared with chlorine or bromine, biguanides are less susceptible to UV rays, and they are more stable (which means that their sanitizing power lasts longer). They do not produce smelly chloramines (the byproduct of inactive chlorine), and they are not affected by high temperatures or changes in pH. Also, most biguanide manufacturers have devised simple-to-follow sanitizing schedules that make a biguanide pool or spa easier to maintain than a pool sanitized with chlorine.
