Hi there!  I am wondering if there are any swimming pools in Boston or the surrounding areas (20 mile radius) that use an alternative disinfection system to chlorination (ozone, hydrogen peroxide, etc). 

Thank you for your time!

lindseym77,

There look to be only a few options for chlorine-free pools in and around Boston (I included some that are beyond your 20-mile limit, as an FYI).  There are also some low-chlorine pools that may be of interest. 

The options are listed below.  If you need any additional information on this, just post a Clarification to let me know.

"...Our atrium-style swimming pool with retractable roof and sliding glass walls is one of the largest pools in the Boston and Cambridge area. The pool offers three swimming lanes and a larger area for less strenuous pursuits, and overlooks the seasonal sundeck. This pool is "chemical chlorine free" and is sanitized using an Electrolytic System and salt - offering a higher level of cleanliness without the harsh effects of chlorine."

Commonwealth Sports Club

"...The CSC indoor pool has a state of the art salt water chlorination system which provides the same level of disinfection as that of traditional chlorination system, without many of the negative side effects. The addition of salt softens pool water so it's gentler and is less likely to cause red, burning eyes or dry, itchy skin. It's easier on swimwear; fabric won't fade as fast or disintegrate over time. It smells better! Lower chlorine levels eliminate chlorine taste and smell.

"...As a Longfellow Club member you benefit from indoor/outdoor sparkling pools in two locations, which are heated year-round between 80-82 degrees. We use a filtration system called "ionization" which lowers the chlorine on your body by 66%.


[One blogger mentions the Sports Club pool as chlorine-free, but it is not mentioned on the Sports Club site.  I called them and they do, in fact, use chlorine, but they have a filter which removes most chlorine from the water after disinfection.  Probably worth checking out]

This is more of a follow up question than a clarification, and please don't feel like you have to answer this, but I assume that Boston Sports Clubs' pools use chlorine...

Thank you so much,
Lindsey

Thanks for the very kind feedback.

Here are lists of BSC clubs with pools in and around Boston:

http://www.mysportsclubs.com/clubsched/_clubsearchresults.htm?rg=BSC&a=Boston&cm=RegionAreaSearch&sps=Pool(s)


http://www.mysportsclubs.com/clubsched/_clubsearchresults.htm?rg=BSC&a=Greater+Boston&cm=RegionAreaSearch&sps=Pool(s)


If you click on the word "Pool(s)" under each club, a brief description opens up.  None of them mention chlorine-free pools, which is usually something that clubs try to highlight if they have them.  So it doesn't look as if BSC has an chlorine-free pools to offer, but you'd have to contact each club to be certain.

I'm wondering if anyone knows about any more non-chlorinated pools in the Boston area (lap pools) since these comments were posted in 2008?
Many thanks!

Hi Aga, 

Welcome to Uclue.  Just from "user" to "user", a researcher would have to just as much to update the information as David did to answer this question.
A new question might be appropriate. 

Regards, Myoarin
