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 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
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.
