As water flows through the Pool Tiger, it is channeled into proprietary nozzles that convert it to water vapor, super-heating it for a fraction of a second. Instantly, the water vapor collapses and reverts back to a liquid.
This conversion from liquid-to-gas-to-liquid makes for very high temperatures, which kills the bacteria and algae. It also creates a harmonic vibration that breaks down the algae walls to prevent regrowth. These particles of dead algae are negatively charged, which causes them to ‘glom together’ in larger particles which are then easily cleaned by your pool filter on the next pass.
“I take care of about 150 pools a week and always have some pools that are always very difficult to get cleared up. Here in Florida we deal with water temperatures in the 90s, and I had one pool for months I was about to give up on and tell the customer to find someone else to take care of it. As a last resort I told the customer I was going to try a Pool Tiger on it—
A week after installing it, as I walked up to it I wasn’t sure what happened — the water was so crystal-clear I thought I was looking at air. When I got back to my office I ordered 30 more Pool Tigers and my customers LOVE them and so do I. They have made my job easier taking care of pools. ~ Gloria Hughes, Summers Pool Cleaning Service – Pensacola, Florida
Polar Vortex, the parent company of Pool Tiger, was called upon to develop technology for the oil and gas industry that could treat the millions of gallons of waste water being injected back into the ground. We created a system that could remove the toxic hydrocarbons still trapped in the water. We have since applied this revolutionary system to not only swimming pools, but public fountains, snow making equipment and even home water filtration.
“I had a Pool Tiger installed on my pool two years ago and had the clearest water I’ve ever had. I noticed my eczema went completely away after it was installed. The eczema returned after the pool was closed for the winter. Now that I’ve opened the pool for the summer again, my eczema has once again gone away. I’m now having one installed on my hot tub so I can use it year round. Thank you, Pool Tiger!” ~ Marrilou P., North Reading, PA
Ever walk by a pool and notice that strong chlorine smell? That usually isn’t chlorine. That smell happens when chlorine meets body oils, sweat and urine. These ‘disinfection byproducts’ include the chloramines that make pools smell bad, as well as cyanogen chloride, which is classified as a chemical warfare agent. Then there are nitrosamines, which can cause cancer in high doses. And those are just a few.
A study published in the American Journal of Public Health showed that the skin absorbs an average of 64% of total contaminant dosage in regular drinking water. That means that you are absorbing a lot of contaminates through your skin every time you use your pool. Doesn’t it make sense to swim in the cleanest water you can get, with the least exposure to dangerous chemicals?
It means the water in your pool will look better, feel better and smell better. The water will sparkle like never before. You and your family will be exposed to fewer chemicals, and you will feel better after you swim. In short, you will enjoy your pool more!
“I thought my pool was always in pretty good shape, however, I was excited about the prospect of using less chemicals for health reasons. I installed the Pool Tiger and am amazed every time I look at my pool, and even more amazed when I get in it. The water is absolutely the best it’s ever been. It takes so little work now to keep it that way.” ~ Nate B., Oklahoma City, OK
Pool Tiger is typically installed in 15 minutes or less. It requires no electricity and there are no bulbs or pellets to replace like other chlorine-reduction devices. Just plumb it in and let it go to work.
Pool Tiger has no moving parts to wear out or break down, and its impact-resistant housing was designed to last for years to come.
There is no such thing as a maintenance-free pool. Water chemistry is constantly changing due to a variety of factors. Whether you service your pool yourself or use a pool service company, you will still need to maintain your pool, take water samples, remove vegetation, brush the walls, etc. And yes, you may occasionally need to use chemicals to ensure proper sanitation. Pool Tiger simply allows you to use less.
“I installed a Pool Tiger on my own pool to check it out for myself. In less than a week, I could see a difference. It dropped acidity levels and the water just sparkles now. It even smells better. And there’s almost no buildup on the walls. I’ll be recommending Pool tiger to all of my clients for sure.” Beverly Russell, owner, Clear Care Pools, Austin, TX
Every pool tested in the study contained some urine, which indicates that this is a widespread problem. The problem is that uric acid interacts with chlorine to form toxic compounds, primarily cyanogen chloride (CNCl) and trichloramine (NCl3).CNCl is said to affect many organs, including the lungs, heart and central nervous system, while NCl3 has been associated with acute lung injury.
Pool Tiger minimizes these health risks in two ways, first by reducing the need for chlorine. Less chlorine means a lower concentration of the toxic compounds. Regardless of the concentration, however, these compounds are effectively destroyed by the heat signature created as a result of Pool Tiger's patented hydraulic harmonics process.
This process also creates peroxides and hydroxyl, beneficial and short-lived oxidizers that serve to sterilize water. The remaining minerals become ionized and attract other particles until they become so large they fall out of suspension and are captured by the pool filter.
“I am an attorney and was extremely skeptical of the Pool Tiger doing anything for me. I bought it just to help a friend. But I must admit, I have been extremely pleased and surprised. The Pool Tiger far exceeded by expectations. I had a real problems with algae springing up quickly and often, before I installed the Pool Tiger. After I installed the Pool Tiger, the amount of chemicals I had to add were dramatically decreased, and my battle against green algae went away. Last summer was sooo much easier to care for my pool. I was going to hire a weekly pool service because I was ready to give up. But after I installed the Pool Tiger, I have easily been able to keep the pool water clean and clear myself. The Pool Tiger is saving me money and making my life easier. Thanks, Pool Tiger! I highly recommend the product.”
