What is a Mineral Sanitizer?
A mineral sanitizer is a modern water sanitation product that effectively kills bacteria and algae in swimming pools and spas. There are various types of mineral sanitizers that can be found here.
How Do Mineral Sanitizers Work?
Most mineral sanitizers work by combining copper and silver ions. In fact, this concept is nothing new.
Early evidence has shown that mineral sanitizers were used by ancient Egyptians and Romans. They have antimicrobial properties that can be commonly found in pool water.
Can Minerals Be Used as a Standalone Sanitation System?
Although they can still effectively clean pool and spa water, mineral systems are no longer as effective as chlorine or bromine. Instead, they use powerful long-acting salts to reduce the amount of chlorine in the water.
In addition, mineral sanitizers can help decrease the amount of chlorine in your pool by up to 50%. They can also be paired with other solutions that can effectively remove chlorine.
What Are the Benefits of Mineral Sanitizers?
Aside from reducing the amount of chlorine and bromine that you need, mineral systems can also help keep the salt cells in your pool or spa fresh and clean. They can also reduce the wear and tear on their cells.

Most pool and spa mineral cartridges last for about 4 months. However, depending on the brand and size of the cartridge, they may last for up to 4 weeks.
