While the backyard pool is commonplace in
Australia, the MagnaPool is a relative newcomer
to the market. And what a newcomer.
We all know swimming is good for you, but this
takes it to a whole new level. e ultimate in luxe-
health, the MagnaPool can actually make you
healthier while you swim, soak or splash.
MagnaPool is essentially a system, rather than
a physical pool you install. It can be added to an
existing pool, or including as part of the planning.
So how does it work, and what the hell is it
anyway? ink of it as mineral water for your pool.
" is technology in water science is bringing
mineral water to home pools just like destination
mineral springs around the world - so it is truly
like having your own health sanctuary in your
own back yard," says MagnaPool's Vanessa Saleh.
e system creates water that is rich in
magnesium and potassium minerals, that doesn't
need heavy chlorination or salt.
e water feels softer and almost silky. It won't
leave a chlorine residue on your skin (which is
great for families, as children are more susceptible
to absorbing chlorine into their bodies through
their skin), and won't discolour blonde hair.
Your pool will also have increased clarity
(imagine that tempting sparkling water in
summer), and you can be happy knowing
your carbon footprint will be lower due to the
lack of harsh chemicals and decreased water
"MagnaPool is environmentally friendly," says
" e water is so natural that the water that is
used for backwashing can be stored and diluted
and then used to water the garden. e minerals
are extremely nourishing for shrubs and grass.
With a MagnaPool really no water is lost at all,"
So how is the water good for you?
e combination of the natural blend of ocean
minerals (containing magnesium sourced from
the Dead Sea and potassium chloride) works
with the MagnaPool Hydroxonator (a spiffy
bit of engineering that you need to love, not
understand), to create magnesium hydroxide.
e magnesium hydroxide then kills all bacteria
in the pool (magnesium chloride is a natural
antiseptic), and constantly works as a natural
clarifier and enriches the water giving it that silky
But how does it make you healthy?
As you swim, the magnesium chloride mineral
soaks through the skin to a cellular level.
is mineral can help reduce stress and anxiety,
and has been known to improve sleep patterns.
It can relieve aches and pains (hence why lots of
athletes take magnesium powder), and detoxifies
the body by working like a magnet on your skin,
drawing out toxins and impurities.
e result; your skin feels soft, smooth and
sparkling. And all you have to do is go for a dip.
Magnesium is also involved in more than 300
crucial enzyme reactions in your body, and can
shield cells from heavy metals such as aluminium,
lead and mercury.
If your cells aren't protected from these metals,
cells become damaged and reproduce creating
more bad cells. And that's when you get sick.
e only way to get one of these systems
(comprising hydroxonator, high-flow filter, glass
filtration media, high-flow pump and minerals) is
to contact a MagnaPool dealer.
Prices start at $3798 plus GST. ey can be
installed for domestic or commercial use.

It's all well and good to install a
delicious pool system that will make
you less stressed and more beautiful,
and you can have all the meditation
space you like, but if you're pouring
poison on the paving to kill ants, and
spraying weed killer on the lawn,
you're not doing yourself any favours.
To get a truly healthy experience
from your garden, eliminate chemicals
as best you can. If it's going to kill a
living thing, it's not going to be great
for you either.
While small amounts rarely do
much, it's the accumulation of such
toxins in your system that will get you
in the long run.
So if you're really interested in
a health experience in your own
backyard, make cleaning out the
garage of toxic nasties a priority.
"THIS TECHNOLOGY IN WATER SCIENCE IS
BRINGING MINERAL WATER TO HOME POOLS JUST
LIKE DESTINATION MINERAL SPRINGS AROUND THE
WORLD SO IT IS TRULY LIKE HAVING YOUR OWN
HEALTH SANCTUARY IN YOUR OWN BACK YARD,"
