Keeping Afloat with New Technology

The Reef Resort is the only property on Grand Cayman to offer the newest swimming pool technology and Chlorine Free Swimming for our guests!

We’ve employed a new method of cleaning in order to offer you ‘maximum bather comfort’ during your stay here. So there’s no more chlorine smell or swimmers red eye to deal with.

Here’s the science:

When an electrical current passes through a sodium chloride solution, Chlorine is evolved in the anode: 2 Cl– –> Cl2 (g) + 2e–

Since Chlorine gas is soluble in water, it enters into solution as hypochlorous acid.
Cl2 (g) + 2 H2O –> 2 HOCl + 2H+

Hypochlorous acid is a powerful sanitizer and oxidizer.

This new Saline Technology offers you a friendlier pool as the new 24 hour automated measuring and recording system cleans our pools using electrodes and coarse rock sea salt – providing clear, soft, odorless pools for you to cool off in. Wonderful news for you, your skin and that favorite bathing suit (which should last a bit longer before fading now).
