Swimming Pools

The Pool and Spa industry in Australia is undergoing a decided evolution to phase down the harsh use of chlorine as the sole means of treating today’s pools.

At the heart of this gear change is the shift from chlorine TO chlorine dioxide based products – something gaining momentum as more people come to understand that chlorine dioxide is not chlorine. And offers quite different and measurable product attributes that chlorine is not able to achieve.

Chlorine dioxide is not chlorine

Chlorine dioxide is biodegradable and leaves no harsh chemical by-products unlike chlorine

Chlorine dioxide used in pool and spa water can achieve superior levels of water testing and hygiene through its oxidation properties. It can even treat and prevent outbreaks of cryptosporidium and giardia

Chlorine dioxide is robustly more pH tolerant than chlorine

But this is not brand-new science. Chlorine Dioxide derived products have been used to treat public and municipal swimming pools in Australia since 1988 – an industry innovation introduced by Zychem Technologies to the local market more than two decades ago.

Using our long involvement in this market sector, we’ve continued to innovate with research and development. And are proud to release two new hard working product choices – exclusive to the Zychem range.


Reduction in the overall chlorine burden –achieve better water clarity & hygiene with less chemicals – a vastly superior outcome for the pool user.

Ability to Shock treat and preventatively dose for outbreaks of water-born contaminants which find their ways into pools. Our oxidizing products work to destroy water borne microorganisms without any chance of mutation.

Dramatic reduction in unpleasant chloramines which typically create sore eyes and unpleasant chlorine vapours for pool and spa users – even more so in heated and indoor pools/ spas environments.

250% higher oxidizing capacity than chlorine.

Effective over a wide ranges of pH conditions and wide ranges of temperatures, water hardness and organic load – a boon for anyone involved in pool maintenance.

Convenient choice of dispensing applications including liquid and powder forms – a plus when assessing freight, storage and handling aspects of pool products.
