Amazing Pool Eliminator - A swimming pool, spa, or large fountain is often your highest energy consumer after air conditioning. The Pool Eliminator will cut this energy cost 50% while extending the life of your main filtration system. The patent-pending Pool Eliminator uses completely safe copper and silver ions to purify water, allowing you an 80% reduction in purchases of harsh pool chemicals. The ionization process also reduces Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), precipitating hard water minerals to gradually eliminate scaling on your pool tiles and water features.

The 100% solar-powered Pool Eliminator is the only all-in-one ionizer and pool filter pump on the market today. The scientific facts available conclude that a combination of chlorine plus the copper and silver system is a proven, safe and economical approach to purifying water in swimming pools and spas. The new dual disinfection method is also easy to implement. This allows a considerable margin of error for maintaining a sanitary pool.

Introductory price is $994 USD or $12,900 Mexican Pesos. No other product in the world has a faster payback time - months, not years. - Charles Shipman, info [- at -] pooleliminator.mx, pooleliminator.mx/, (612) 145-1061, Baja California Sur
