“The water saving was the big clincher for me. A MagnaPool can save up to 65% water over other pools because of reduced backwashing. Once diluted the water can also be used on your garden providing an excellent source of nutrients for your lawn and shrubs. I was also interested to learn that MagnaPool minerals do not contribute to salinity in the environment as they contain magnesium and potassium, rather than traditional pool salts. I’m very pleased to be asked to be a contributing writer for the MagnaPool magazine. MagnaPool is certainly one of the most exciting innovations in the swimming pool industry and I’m sure when people want the best pool system in the market they will take the time to look into the many benefits of MagnaPool.”

The word Spa is derived from Salus per Aqua - 'healing through water'. No Day Spa or Health Spa is quite complete without waters within which to relax and renew the guest. Few spas are lucky enough to have their own source of mineral rich healing waters, but now thanks to Magnapool every guest in every spa can have access to wellness enhancing and skin beautifying water that is hygienically pure and good for the environment.
The global explosion of the popularity of Day and Destination Spas is a prime example of an 'idea that's time has come' - I anticipate we will see a similar explosion of mineral water pools with this outstanding Australian technology, MagnaPool is good for people and for the planet.

"We got our MagnaPool System installed several months ago now. Firstly can I say I love it. I am 39 weeks pregnant and wallow in my pool nightly to cool down and love not coming out smelling like I've been in a pool full of chemicals. My 2 year old also loves it and over the Xmas holidays has learnt to put his head under water and blow bubbles. Back at swimming lessons was another story completely, red eyes, lots of crying and refusing to put his head under. Can't express how much I love how much the MagnaPool has improved his swimming experience and therefore his confidence in the water."

“As it is now four months since our MagnaPool was commissioned, I thought I’d let you know what a success it has been. My wife Debbie, who previously would not enter the water, loves it - she says it reminds her of swimming as a child in Five Day Creek in the hills behind Kempsey. We put that down to the MagnaPool water that is extremely gentle on the skin.”

“The MagnaPool is without a doubt the best investment I have made in regards to personal health and well-being. The absorption of magnesium through the skin has definitely lowered my stress level and allowed my everyday mood to be on an even keel. Along with the noticeable difference in your skin compared to normal pools I totally recommend this system. In today’s fast paced World this is an ideal way to improve your overall sense of health and well-being.”

My family has been in the swimming industry for over sixty years and as far as I am concerned the MagnaPool concept is the best filtration and sanitizing system I have ever used. I have a duty of care to my franchisees, teachers and pupils to make sure we supply the best possible environment for them to work in and a MagnaPool supplies that environment.
It is so refreshing to be able to work in a pool that is so gentle on your skin, does not smell of trihalomethanes (chloramines) and not to smell like chlorine after you finish a shift. Recently I had my grandson in one of my swim schools with a MagnaPool system for fifty minutes without any sore eyes, or chlorine smell, truly amazing. MagnaPool water soothes the skin and leaves it feeling soft and odour free. I absolutely love the MagnaPool concept, this health and wellness water is creating a healthy environment for people to swim and bathe in

We researched swimming pools for two years before settling on the MagnaPool system.
Our criteria was: we needed a lap pool, it must be heated for daily use all year around. Not chlorine or salt for two reasons:
One my skin reacts to the chlorine at levels needed for a salt or chlorine pool and even worse when heated, we have found the low level of chlorine in the Magna pool is not causing the skin reactions found using salt or chlorine pools.
Two, my mother is an asthmatic and reacts to the high levels of chlorine but is not having any problems using our MagnaPool. We wanted to be able to use the back wash water in the orchard and not contaminate the soil. The separate spa needed to be run with the MagnaPool system and to be able to be heated to 35 degrees. My research came up with the MagnaPool because it met all our criteria and more.
The water is soft and gentle on our skin and guests have commented on how soft the water feels and how relaxed they feel after swimming in our pool. I have a chronic back injury and the therapeutic result of the magnesium is really noticeable when using the pool or spa to relieve muscle aches and pains. I believe it is value for money and well worth the extra cost of the MagnaPool.

For months we planned a renovation to our home including a new swimming pool, for our growing family. After receiving approval for our development application our pool plans were placed on hold by the birth of our daughter who suffers from eczema. The chlorine and salts in standard pool treatment systems irritate her skin, and a pool in our backyard would be too much of a temptation on a hot summer’s days when her eczema is at its worst.
We were given some minerals that were used in the MagnaPool system, and placed these in her bath. We were extremely excited when her eczema had cleared up virtually over-night. The healing properties of MagnaPool not only cleared up her skin, but also had a very calming and relaxing effect.
We would highly recommend to any parent considering a pool, to get a MagnaPool. The benefits have not been limited to our daughter. Taking our son to his swimming lessons we always returned home smelling of chlorine. His skin was dry after the swimming lessons and my wife, who was pregnant at the time, could not watch him swimming - feeling nausea from the chlorine smell.
We are so fortunate to have come across MagnaPool and have put our pool renovation plans back into action with a MagnaPool.

Dear Placid Pools Team
You truly have transformed our backyard and given us a whole new lifestyle. Not only did Placid Pools achieve this in record time but also with minimal disruptions. We are very happy to have relied on your expertise and taken
your advice when we chose a new generation fibre glass pool over a concrete one. It saved our budget for construction as well as for maintaining it, as our pool needs so much less chemicals!
Thank you also for introducing the Magnapool System to us. What a difference the quality of our water makes! Having had a ‘normal’ salt water chlorine pool in the past we can appreciate and really feel the difference. No more burning eyes for the kids, not even a need to wear goggles. No more dry skin and horrible chlorine smell, but a truly relaxing and soothing spa-like experience.
Our hair and skin feel great, and again you are helping us to save money on the maintenance side, as it costs us less to maintain this natural mineral water than our chlorine pool ever did.
Now that we experience what it is like to swim in a Magnapool we will never go back and can only recommend this to everyone.
A big ‘Thank you’ to the whole Placid Pools Team!

Testimonial through MagnaPool Licensed Builder & Retailer Placid Pools
When we were looking to have our pool built we asked our pool builder what options there were available to us. As I have 75% 3rd Degree Burns to my body I didn't want a salt pool (leaving salt residue on my skin) or chlorine (for the obvious smell and red eyes they cause, not to mention a host of other factors).
Brad & Glen Buttsworth of Narellan Pools Bathurst suggested a MagnaPool would be the best pool for my skin condition overall, and ‘’Magnapool’’, well, we had never heard of it, so we looked it up on the internet.
What a product, yes it was a bit more expensive in the beginning to the price of our new pool, but it was our dream to have a product like Magnapool.
What can I say, to be able to swim in our own pool and also to control the balancing of non-synthetic chemicals, but to have no smell, no residue and no red eyes this is truly amazing.
I am able to dilute the pool water and put it on the Garden and the Lawn in Orange where we are on level 5 water restrictions is also fantastic. But to know that the water can not harm my skin, this would have to be one of the best investments to my health and well being that we have made.
To swim in a Magnapool for me and my wife, and our families sake, it has been the best summer we have experienced to date. To come home after work, take the pool cover off, skim the few insects from the top and get into our swimmers and jump straight in is the best feeling and Magnapool, well, we tell everybody that will listen to get one or look it up on the internet.
We know that we will enjoy, the many summers to come so Thankyou Magnapool for a fantastic product! and Thankyou Brad & Glen Buttsworth and the team at Narellan Pools Bathurst for the great advice and service given to us in the instillation of our Pool.
Thank you from Vaughn Livermore.
PS can’t wait for next summer!!
