Having a pool or a jacuzzi can be a lot of fun, but less fun is the chlorine that always needs to be added as maintenance. The thing is, chlorine can be very harmful to your eyes, lungs, hair, nails, and also your skin. Moreover, chlorine can range from irritating to very harmful to the skin depending on your age or existing skin condition.

Chlorine may be successful in the field of disinfection, but the reality is that this product also has harmful effects on human health.
When chlorine comes into contact with water, a reaction takes place in which hypochlorous acid is formed. During this chlorination process, the hypochlorous acid breaks down the cellular components of pathogens to eliminate them. In addition, this creates chloramines. These not only have a bad odor but also allow pathogens to infect swimmers.
In addition, chlorine can have a negative effect on human skin.
