Swimming Pools, Spas, Water Parks and Water Features

Our Ultraviolet Sterilizers play a key role in the disinfection of Public and Private & Public Pool, Spa and Water Feature Treatments.

Whether you utilize a private or public Swimming Pool, Spa, Water Park or other water venue, beware of what could be lurking in that clean, sparkling water.

Recreational water, no matter where it is found, needs to undergo treatment in order to remain safe for swimmers.

Harmful substances that have been found to lurk in these fun places are bacterias, viruses, algae, and pathogens to name a few.

Swimming Pools, Spas, and Park waters have been increasingly found to be the breeding grounds of chloramines and chlorinated organic compounds that show up as smelly pool water, and increased eye, nose and throat issues, to name a few.

As we continue to evolve in learning about the Safety concerns of clean water for recreational use, we find that there is an increasing awareness that chlorine has several negative health effects and that many bacterial pathogens, including Cryptosporidium oocysts, are resistant to chlorine disinfection and can survive for lengthy periods of time in treated water venues.

The popularity of recreational water venues, the number and geographic distribution of recent cryptosporidiosis outbreaks, and the resistance of Cryptosporidium to chlorination suggest that treatment strategies for recreational water facilities need to be improved.

UV Vs. Chlorine

UV systems work by flowing pool water over a UV lamp that denatures bacterial DNA in the pool water passing over it. They offer additional pool water sanitation along with chlorine or other chemicals by destroying chlorine-resistant microbes and other contaminants while reducing chemical consumption. Read more.

Ultraviolet (UV) light represents a powerful technology that has been successfully deployed in swimming pools for several years. UV disinfection of pools and splash parks is a complementary way of providing an effective method of inactivating a wide range of waterborne pathogens including Cryptosporidium.

The Leader in UV Disinfection

  • Destroys Microorganisms that Chlorine can not
  • Improves air quality, ideal for indoor pools (resorts, hotels)
  • Lowers chemical use and costs by 75%
  • Increases the life of pool equipment
  • Reduces Bather Sensitivities
  • Kills Bacteria and Viruses

UV is not designed to completely replace chlorine, but through elimination of the need for periodic shocking, well-maintained pools can see significant reductions in chlorine usage.

Ultraviolet (UV) light disinfection systems play an important role in a complete water treatment process in aquaculture facilities. 

UV Applications for Recreational Waters

  • Disinfection – the most common application of UV light in water treatment.
  • Ozone Destruction – a UV system sized for chloramines reduction delivers sufficient UV dosage to inactivate Cryptosporidium, and can also significantly reduce the microbial counts by destroying at least 99.9% of the bacteria present in the influent stream when installed after filtration.
