Bromine. This is a sanitizer, that isn’t completely different from chlorine, but it is an alternative to those who suffer chlorine allergies. Bromine is typically mixed with chlorine; this means you can use smaller amounts of chlorine to keep the pool water clean.
Natural pools. These pools are cleaned by filtering the water with aquatic plants. The pool you swim in is contructed next to an adjacent small body of water that houses the plants. The plants filter the water, removes impurities and then the water is filtered back to the pool you swim in.
Ozonator systems inject ozone gas into the water, the gas reacts with impurities and eradicates them. You can have an ultraviolet light or a corona discharge ozonator.
PHMB is a compound that doesn’t lead to oxidation. It is essentially adding hydrogen peroxide and an algaecide to the water to keep it free of impurities.
