Enclosed is a picture of our pool. We are enjoying our chlorine-free pool very much—it is clear and clean, without any odor.

Thank you very much,

Dear ECOsmarte,

I installed the ECOsmarte system in less than an hour. From the day it was installed our pool has been crystal clear with virtually no chemical additives. I added one gallon of muriatic acid to adjust the pH and since that time I haven’t added anything to the pool. Our pool is so clear and chemical free, our two children almost refuse to swim in our friends pools that are chlorinated. They hate the smell and what chlorinated water does to their hair. I estimate that the ECOsmarte system will save me over $600 a season in chemicals and reduce my pumping time by 50%. I don’t understand why not every swimming pool come equipped with the ECOsmarte system when the pool is installed. It is one of the best investments I have ever made.

Dear Mark,

This is one of the best investments I’ve ever made. My pool looks like this (picture) year round. The liner lasts years longer due to lack of chemicals. This pays off over and over again.

Dear Larry,

We would like to tell you how much we have enjoyed our pool with the ECOsmarte system. In the seven years we have had the pool, it has always been so easy to maintain. The difference of swimming in it compared to other types of pools sanitized with chemical products is amazing. Please see (enclosed picture) how crystal clear our pool stays with your copper ionization system.

Dear ECOsmarte,

I want to thank you for inventing such a great product. We recently moved to Arizona only to discover that the water here is loaded with chlorine and a toxic substance to which I’m highly sensitive. We also discovered that the amount of calcium in the water causes white scaling on every dish, glass, sink, shower and toilet. Since we had your system installed, I can actually do laundry that smells clean as opposed to smelling like I just dumped it in a swimming pool. I can’t even express what a difference your product has made.

Thank you ECOsmarte,
Adrienne Ramirez

Dear ECOsmarte,

Thank you so very much for all your patience with me regarding the ECOsmarte pool system. I am so excited about your products. Think about all the pollution we are reducing by not pouring tons of chemicals into our pools, thus preserving the health of our lives, our children’s life, our wildlife and the future of our planet.

Your integrity as a company really shines through. You are there when we need you. It is noticed and – surely – it is appreciated.

Thanks again. It’s been great discovering ECOsmarte’s pool system.

Dear ECOsmarte,

We have installed two of your systems, one for our well and the other to purify our pool water. We were very concerned about the quality of the water that we were drinking, bathing and swimming in. We have been pleased with the clarity of the water, the taste and the assurance that we are doing what we can to insure the purity and healthfulness of the water we use. We are also very pleased with the service in installing and maintaining our systems. They have been prompt and responsive to any problem.

With our thanks,
Dave and Sylvia Phillips

Dear ECOsmarte,

Enclosed you will find photographs of our ECOsmarte pool conversion. They should stand as a testimonial to ECOsmarte customers. We were apprehensive to try “another” pool product, but your system is easy to use and saves us money. Better yet, it has solved our ten-year battle with well water, nitrates, filtration and chemicals.

I have found you to be the most knowledgeable in pool construction and water chemistry and by far the most honest in the pool business.

I’m looking forward to enjoying our ECOsmarte chlorine-free pool for summers to come. Thank You!

Kelley Schweitz

Dear ECOsmarte,

We love our ECOsmarte pool system because the water has a fresh natural smell, the pool water never irritates our skin, and showering is unnecessary after swimming. We recommend this system to anyone who is interested in high quality swimming pool water.

Jerry and Nancy Ouska

Dear Mark,

Please find my Electrode Chamber. It needs reconditioning. Please call me at xxx xxxx and let me know the cost. I spoke to Mike and he indicated that it would be a minimum of $90.

I have had the ECOsmarte system in for 6 years and enjoy it immensely.

Sincerely yours,
Kenneth Lange

To Whom It May Concern,

I have a residential size plaster pool (19×40), I have been using the ECOsmarte pool system for three years and find that the ability to maintain a Chlorine-Free pool is an easy task. The overall quality of the water produced is far superior to that produced by a chlorine based system and all the users in my household feel as if they are swimming in what we affectionately call soft water. To say the least we do not miss the odor of chlorine and the affects on the body and the swimming suits.

Richard C Zimmerman

Dear ECOsmarte,

We are really enjoying our chemical free pool. The water is crystal clear and much gentler on the skin. I don’t worry about the girls spending hours in the pool since they are no longer exposed to all the chlorine.

Fronica Gonzalez

Hi Joe,

And all the friendly people at ECOsmarte! Boy, we sure wish we would have had your unit 26 years ago, when we put the pool in, we started with chlorine. The eyes would smart and sting and the suits and liner would fade. Then we went to baquacil, the damage to metal was bad and we are still feeling those effects of that, so -THANK YOU ECOSMARTE FOR A GREAT PRODUCT!

Dave and Phyl Cummings

To Whom It May Concern,

Our family loves your product. First, there is so much less maintenance with your system than normal chlorine systems. Secondly, the Copper Ionization System doesn’t affect your eyes as bad as a chlorine system does. Thirdly, our skin comes out feeling cleaner than if we were to swim in a chlorinated pool. Lastly, it’s much cheaper to maintain than a chlorinated pool (so my dad says).

Doug Gander (16 years old)

Dear ECOsmarte,

I have been very pleased with our ECOsmarte system over the 5 years that I have happily owned it. It has benefited us in many ways. I guess you could say the money part of the deal is best of all; we spend very little money on it yearly. This in return gives us more money to do the things we love like vacationing. Speaking of which, when we are gone for weeks at a time we don’t have to worry about our pool. We also like the idea that there’s no chemicals this means no dry, itchy skin, no burning red eyes, and no smell. It is also a very healthy way to swim. As I’m sure you know chlorine is a cancer causing chemical.

Bill and Sandra Lickteig

After one year of having an ECOsmarte system installed in our pool, we are very happy with the results. It is very enjoyable to swim in water without chemicals. We don’t have to worry about skin irritation from chlorine or other pool additives. The maintenance is minimal, and our pool looks great. We are looking forward to many great years of family fun in our pool.

Jeff and Kris Christiansen

Dear ECOsmarte,

We are thrilled to finally discover an effective way to avoid chlorine in our new pool. We recently moved to a house with a pool; we were excited about the recreational aspect but very concerned about the carcinogenic affects of chlorine. Now we can sleep peacefully knowing our children are protected by the ECOsmarte system. Thank you for providing a safe product!

Sue Kulpinsky

Because our ECOsmarte uses copper instead of chlorine I can swim without my allergies becoming bothersome. Most pool systems use chlorine or other types of chemicals to treat the water. However, when I swim in a chlorine pool, my nose drips, I’m sneezing, and usually my skin is very itchy and red. We have friends who installed the ECOsmarte, and boy! What a difference it made in the quality of their pool water! I no longer had to take a Kleenex box with me poolside. My skin felt soft and my daughter’s hair did not feel like straw when she was finished swimming. My husband and I had decided that we would not install a pool without an ECOsmarte system. We’ve had a few problems, but using natural products has helped to clear them up. We try to let the system work itself through its problems.

Mary Bayens

Dear ECOsmarte,

I have been using an ECOsmarte pool system for almost 2 years now and as Larry promised, maintenance is so easy it’s almost boring! We opened the pool for the season a month ago and so far the only thing I added is half a gallon of muriatic acid. The water looks great, feels great and smells great! Just as impressive as your product is your staff. I have always been delighted at how knowledgeable and courteous they are and how willing they are to work through issues (even when it turns out the ECOsmarte has nothing to do with the problems!).

Thanks for a healthy, sparkling pool,
Sue Balmer

ECOsmarte Larry,

Thanks for your assistance on the phone a few minutes ago. I’ve called before and talked with someone else. I must say, everyone at ECOsmarte is always very helpful.

I have really enjoyed having the system. It sure is nice not to have to worry about chemicals! I stopped by the pool store today and overheard several customers talking about how much work they had to do in order to get their water right for swimming. I just laughed and told them mine had been clean all winter without much effort. Hopefully, they’ll wake up and buy an ECOsmarte system and be worry free.

If anyone would like to call me and discuss the system, don’t hesitate in giving them my number.

William Jolle


Per our conversation this evening: I bought an ECOsmarte whole house POE system, and pool system with hydroxite and CO2 from your dealer in October. My neighbors, friends, family and I are very pleased to be able to swim in a chlorine free pool. Friends have commented, and I have noticed, that somehow, the pool water feels “soft”. Not like water softened, that slick feel. But more like a gentle, enveloping light touch. I was also surprised at how much chlorine is removed by the whole house system. One night I was up very late and filter had begun its backwash while I was cleaning my contact lenses. The fumes and odor from the chlorinated city water were so powerful that I stepped back from the sink. Needless to say, I don’t bathe, wash, brush teeth, clean contacts anymore during the backwash cycle.

Thank you,
Bill Gilles

Dear ECOsmarte,

We just LOVE your system for our pool! We have a fairly new liner & it is staying the pretty color that it is & not bleaching out from chemicals. My wife is extremely allergic to some chemicals & this prevents her from swimming in a lot of pools. With your system there is no problem. It is easy to maintain. We can go away and we don’t have to worry about our pool turning bad. WE REALLY ENJOY THE FREEDOM OF NO CHEMICALS! We’ll tell all of Rockford about your Super System! If anyone has any questions about your system, don’t hesitate to give them our number & we will be happy to tell them about it.

Tom & Vie Davig

P.S. To whom it may concern; We were not paid to write about this system!

To whom it may concern:

I am writing this letter to inform you that we had an in-ground pool installed with your ECOsmarte system. At first, not knowing how to operate it, I was having some problems.

I called your local dealer, and he talked me through the process and what I was to expect.

Well, one week later my pool was crystal clear. It has remained that way ever since. As you stated – no chemicals and pure water. It is a pleasure to swim in our pool. I can’t thank you enough for such a wonderful product! You may use my name if you care to as an endorsement for your ECOsmarte system.

George Maros

Dear ECOsmarte,

I want to personally congratulate you on your great products. I live in Minnesota and we bought a home with a 30-yr old Baker concrete in-ground pool in 1991. I had never had a pool before so I had a lot to learn about maintenance. The pool had always been treated with chlorine. After the first year I switched to Bacquacil products on the advice of my eye doctor. He felt I was having reactions to the chlorine. The Bacquacil was better but very expensive. After a couple of years I jokingly asked my pool supply company if they had direct deposit so I could just have my paycheck sent to them.

Luckily, I received a brochure from your company 3 years ago. Naturally, I was quite skeptical at first; this had all the appearance of a gimmick that was too good to be true. Well, I’m now convinced you make the best pool products available. Last year my only cost was for some inexpensive acid from K-mart and soda products from the grocery store.

Thank you so much for providing products that make swimming more enjoyable (no foul smelling chlorine) and less costly and time consuming.

Jerry Lindmeyer

Dear Joe and ECOsmarte,

It isn’t often that I write a testimonial letter for a product. My wife and I relocated from New Jersey to Chandler, Arizona in October 1999. After doing a lot of research, we selected our new home and decided we wanted a swimming pool. We found there were numerous qualified builders of pools and spas in our area. The company we selected built our pool and we were quite happy with our choice, except the builder led us to believe that chlorine or salt were the only choices for sanitizing the pool water. I wondered, with all the modern technology, is there any product on the market that wouldn’t burn our eyes or dry out our skin? Using our computer, we found the answer to our question at ECOsmarte. At this site it describes a 100% Chlorine Free Pool System with the additional benefit of being “Planet Friendly”.

The ECOsmarte product consists of essentially an electronic box and electrode chamber and is easily installed on existing pools or new pools. Maintenance of a pool is straightforward and simple using the ECOsmarte system and the water is properly sanitized, crystal clear, and algae free.

With the ECOsmarte pool system, maintenance is very simple. Basically, using a test kit, weekly we check two aspects of water chemistry; Potential Hydrogen (pH) which should have a reading between 6.8 and 7.2 and Copper Ions, that should read between 0.4 and 0.7. The ECOsmarte sanitizing system has proven to me that it is far superior to the other choices of chlorine or salt. My wife and I are happy that we didn’t accept only the choices given by the pool builder, but instead purchased what we believe to be the best system on the market today, the ECOsmarte system, which we are very happy to be using in our pool.

Peter J. Sperlazza

Dear ECOsmarte,

In your “ECO TALK” newsletter you are offering free electrodes for testimonials and photos detailing experiences with your product. Here are some of those details and a photo of four of our grandchildren enjoying our “Chlorine Free” pool.

Just about one year ago we installed a pool. Prior to that (almost 3 months), we had heard about ECOsmarte from a friend who was enjoying a “Chlorine Free” pool without resorting to Chlorine to keep the water “bacteria free.”
After reading and hearing about the benefits of your system, we had it installed in our new pool. Immediately, my grandchildren remarked about not having “burning” eyes as when swimming in a conventional Chlorine pool.
One child, John, refused to go for swimming lessons because his eyes burned. Thanks to ECOsmarte, within the last year, John is now a pretty good swimmer. Knowing how important it is for kids to know how to swim, especially here in Arizona where 50% of the homes have pools, we are thrilled that now all our grandchildren are swimmers.
I can highly recommend ECOsmarte as an alternative to Chlorine. ECOsmarte is on our list of “ways to stay healthy.”

Yours truly,
Ralph Marchese

To Whom It May Concern,

We are writing this letter to let you know how nice it is to swim in a chlorine free pool! Our daughter, age 4, is extremely allergic to chlorine and breaks out in a rash after swimming in chlorinated pools. There is no odor of chlorine, our skin doesn’t dry out after swimming, and no more red eyes! Most of all, no head to toe rashes for our daughter! Thank you so much for making our summer swimming enjoyable here in the heat of Arizona!

The Nardecchia Family

Dear ECOsmarte,

I am very pleased to share my experience with the ECOsmarte swimming pool treatment system, which I installed three months ago. I had been struggling with my pool since I moved in to my current residence 15 months ago. This is the story of my pool.

When I moved in, the house had been vacant for several months and the pool experienced a major algae bloom. I spent the next month dealing with this–large amounts of chlorine shock treatment plus algaecide and flocculent. I even drained one half of the pool volume and refilled it in an attempt to improve water clarity. Please note that I have a covered and enclosed pool, and in the summertime, with green house effect, the pool house temperature is typically in excess of 100 degrees F, and the pool water temperature is in the mid to upper 80’s. This is an ideal environment for algae and bacterial growth. After several weeks, I finally achieved acceptable water quality for swimming. This required frequent chlorination, several pounds of shock treatment every three days coupled with chlorine tablets in the floater. In addition, copper algaecide was added frequently. I also replaced the sand in my filter, which I would run 12 hours a day. I assumed the slight residual water turbidity was a consequence of the thermal stimulus for microbiologic growth coupled with the relatively high porosity of my sand filter.

ECOsmarte has completely changed the quality of my pool. I had the system installed on a trial basis by my neighbor Joel Cepeda, whose crystal clear outdoor pool has been the envy of the neighborhood. I knew that my indoor pool, with greenhouse temperature effect would be a major challenge for the ECOsmarte system and I remained skeptical that it would work. To make a long story short, within 2 days of installing the system my pool was crystal clear and chlorine free. I could visualize the detailed texture of the pool bottom for the first time! I did not have the ECOsmarte system tied in to the automatic timer initially and operated it manually each day. I then left town for a one week vacation in late August, leaving the system off. Imagine my dismay when I returned home to discover a major algae bloom of the same intensity as when I first moved into the house. I immediately turned on the ECOsmarte system and ran it continuously for 24 hours. The pool was clear the following day.

Needless to say, I finalized my purchase of the system on the spot. I tied the system into the timer, and it only requires operation 6 hours a day (as compared to the 12 hours per day pre ECOsmarte) and I have not added any chemical oxidants or algaecide for two months. I simply keep the water pH in the neutral range and ECOsmarte does the rest. The water quality is absolutely superb. I am very excited about this product, which I consider to be a breakthrough technology. I can confidently recommend this system to anyone without reservation. Thanks ECOsmarte.

Ray A. Wagner, M.D.

Hi ECOsmarte and Larry!

I called you a few weeks ago about a question I had with my copper test kit. Thanks for the help. It seems every time I’m stuck, I call you guys and I get the information I need to resolve any issues I have. Thanks.

For your information, I have had the ECOsmarte Pool System now for three summer seasons. I live in Maine where the summers are short, so it is very important to have the pool up and going fast. Your system sure makes it easy and quick to get started. This is what I had to do this spring to get started:

#1 Vacuum the pool, by-passing the filter (I have a DE filter so I just open the discharge valve and vacuum the pool).
#2 Place the DE in the filter.
#3 Test for pH and Copper (here in Maine, the rainwater has a low pH, it tested at 6.8).
#4 Start the ECOsmarte Pool System on Ionization for a few days to get the copper up and by then, the water was clear and ready for swimming.

That is FANTASTIC, you know, I have not used any chemicals in over two years NONE, no pH adjuster, no chlorine, no shock, NOTHING. This system is quickly paying for itself and the quality of the water is great!

So Thanks, for your product and your support staff.
Larry Dube

Dear ECOsmarte,

I am writing to share with you my very positive experience with your product. Swimming has always been my favorite sport, but unfortunately, I am allergic to chlorine and very sensitive to Bromide. Since I purchased your product, I have been able to swim with no allergic reaction. An added benefit has been the low operating costs and above all, the absolutely crystal clear water.

Thank you for allowing me to enjoy my favorite pastime once again.

David G. Ray


My pool has never been this easy to take care of. I don’t even add the pH down Joe told me I would need when I bought your system. There is one more thing I would like to report. I have been turning my pool off 3 to 4 days per week and it’s been crystal clean since last spring when we installed it. We will have made the money back in less than 3 seasons, not to mention saving time.

Bob Katarik

P.S. We have a 28-year-old cement pool with a sand filter. I’ll buy your sand filter media next spring.

Dear ECOsmarte,

We have had our copper ion pool system in operation now for one year and just love it. As you know, keeping a pool pure and clean in South Florida can be a task but with the combination of a turbo cleaning system with your purifier makes it an easy task. Thank you.

I would like to order the $99.00 early bird special you offered in the recent newsletter. While our plates are still good for some time, I would like to have a spare set on hand. Enclosed is a check for $99.00.

Thanks again for a great product.

Donald C. Dietz

Dear ECOsmarte,

I have been using ECOsmarte water conditioning systems for my household water and for my swimming pool for four months now and would like to report back to you that I am extremely pleased with both systems.

My household water is supplied from a well and has moderately hard water. I have had to use a conventional water softener for the last fifteen years, constantly lugging heavy bags of salt to my basement to keep the unit operating. Even with the water softener, my sinks, faucets, and water heater had calcium build-up to the point where two of my toilets filled extremely slow. Within one month after installing the ECOsmarte system in my home, my toilets began filling normally and the scale on the faucets and showerheads disappeared. The bonus was the water felt softer. It was like magic.

As for the pool system, having a chlorine free pool is amazing. My wife has very sensitive eyes and was constantly irritated by the chlorine. Since installing the ECOsmarte system, my maintenance costs have dropped to almost nothing. I still go to the pool every morning thinking there is something I must do. It’s hard to break old habits.

Please use my name as a reference for your products. You’ve got a winner!
