Summer is a great time to get outdoors and have fun and what better way to have fun than to swim. One downfall of a pool is that you always have to add chemicals to the pool.
If you have a pool then you know pool chemicals are quite expensive and add up very fast. Pools consume chlorine the most which happens to be one of the most expensive pool chemicals out there.
Chlorine is also pretty toxic and dangerous, even a little bit can cause sickness or death if you accidentally ingest it.
We all have had that smell after opening the package of chlorine hit us in the face even if we hold our breath, and it’s not a fun smell at all.
Today we are going to talk about solar pool ionizers and what they can do to help your pool not need as many chemicals but still keep it crystal clear.
Here are some of what we think are the best solar pool ionizers for you to use. Not only are they safer, but they use no power at all!

This works on pools up to 35,000 gallons to keep your pool algae free.
The thick cover over the solar panel allows this Solar Pool Ionizer to last years longer than its competitors.
PH will become very stable after using this ionizer, even if you do use small amounts of chlorine yet.
A lifetime replacement warranty guarantees you that if something fails; you will be able to get another one with no questions asked.
Vinyl liners and pool finishes are safe when you use the Solar Pool Ionizer so there will be no premature failure of either.

Ionizer Buying Guide – How to find the best solar pool ionizer for your needs.
Pool Size: Determine the amount of water your pool has and which pool ionizer will work most efficiently for your pool. There are online pool calculators to determine pool gallonage.
Power options: Do you want a solar pool ionizer or a 110 volt powered pool ionizer. While the electric pool ionizers require electricity, they do not draw much power at all so you will barely (if at all) notice it on your power bill.
Replacement parts: See if you can find replacement parts easily for your pool ionizers. If you have a hard time finding parts now before you buy it, how hard will it be to find replacement parts in 2 years, 5 years, or even longer?
Warranty: Does your pool ionizer come with a manufacturer’s warranty? If so what is the warranty; lifetime, limited, so many years, etc. This will be things to consider before purchasing a pool ionizer.
Pool types: Will this work in your pool? Some pool ionizers may work in just freshwater pools and others will work in freshwater and saltwater pools. They are also available for spas, hot tubs, and Jacuzzis so if you are looking for one of these hot-water units, keep this in mind as they may not all be suitable for your desired use.
