No. There are alternatives to chlorine. Biguanides (PHMB) is an organic polymeric
disinfectant that is used in conjunction with Hydrogen Peroxide (H202), which is an
oxidizer. This disinfection system is largely marketed to residential applications.
Biquanides are not compatible with common products such as chlorine-releasing
chemicals, copper algaecides, potassium monopersulfate, etc. Biquanides can however
create a mildew and slime that can build up in plumbing. In-grounds are more susceptible
to this process.
