My pool is cleaned with a copper ionizer. The readings for copper and pH are always good. How can I be sure there is no unhealthy bacteria


Even with a copper ionizer system it is a good idea to maintain a low level of chlorine or bromine in order to prevent any unhealthy bacteria. You can typically maintain a lower level of chlorine or bromine because the copper is taking on some of the sanitizer workload, but you should at least have some low level present.
