Benefits of a magnesium or mineral pool


Mineral Chlorinators

In recent years, there’s been a rise in manufacturers claiming to manufacture chlorinators dedicated to running on minerals and mineral blends. Most of the time, these manufacturers will also try and push their own brand of special mineral blends at over inflated prices. The truth is, there’s no such thing as mineral chlorinator. In fact, every chlorinator on the market is capable of running minerals without any issues at all.

All Watermaid EcoBlend chlorinators are compatible with salt, magnesium or any commercially available mineral blend. There’s no need to change settings or purchase a dedicated mineral chlorinator. As the name implies, the EcoBlend is an all in one salt and mineral chlorinator.


The benefits of magnesium are well documented. There’s strong evidence to suggest that magnesium is beneficial for skin, bones, and respiratory conditions as well as general health and wellbeing.

Soft Water


It’s hard to imagine that water can be either soft or hard. Water is water, right? Actually, when magnesium chloride is present in your swimming pool it gives the water a noticeably soft and silky feel. Anyone who has experienced the difference between soft and hard pool water will agree that magnesium or mineral pools are a delight to swim in.

Cell Protection

Did you know that the presence of magnesium chloride in your pool helps to protect your chlorinator cell? It works by making the calcium deposits soft and mushy, making it easier to simply wash away during the reversing (cleaning) cycle.

The benefits of a chlorinator cell staying clean are:

  • Better chlorine production
  • Little or no manual cleaning of the cell
  • Less wear and tear on the cell and increased cell life
