How to keep the pool water clean without nasty chemicals


Is there a chemical-free way to keep pool water safe and healthy, that is without chlorine or bromine?

How about using UV radiation to sterilize the water?

Still chlorinated, but if handling chemicals is the issue, how about a salt water pool?

The alternative I've seen pushed is copper-oxygen system. I can't say how effective it is, but last I checked it is not approved by the EPA for sanitizing water. I've also read that they take more attention and care.

Just based on experience having a pool in full sunlight - UV isn't going to do the job by itself. I think the filters they sell are designed to reduce your chemical dependency, but not eliminate it. Same with ozone generators.
