Swimming pool water gets polluted & contaminated by swimmers &
environment. For better safety of users it is essential to
continuously trend & disinfectant the pool water for contamination
over long period of time, all across the world chlorine was used as
a primary disinfectant. But use of chlorine has many disadvantages
due to which alternative technologies are becoming popular.
Techniques of pool water treatment.
Among many other alternatives use of ozone is the most popular across the world. Most of the hotels & resorts use ozone for swimming pool water treatment.
Advantages of ozone:
Ozonated pool water is very safe to swimmers. It does not give skin etching & eyes, hair fall, eye reddening, & teeth bitterness.
Ozone works on wide pH range of water.
Ozone in the strongest oxidizing agent & disinfect water very quickly. E.g. ozone is 3000 faster than chlorine.
Ozone reacting with pool water does not create harmful by-products, so called disinfectant bi-products [DBP’s]. These DBP’s are harmful to swimmers, because study shows in one swimming session children’s gulp 150 to 200 ml of water & adults gulp 50-100 ml of pool water.
Ozone oxidizes organic impurities presents in water with swimmers urine & sweat.
Ozone removes color & odor in pool water.
Ozone has a property of micro floatation and as result pool water becomes sparkling clear.
Ozone is produce at site; soil eliminates handling, transportation & storage hazard. After rayon’s study, test & research.
Ozone technology is approved & recommended by WHO, NSW, USPA, DIN, Olympic board, FINA & range similar governing bodies across the world.
Swimming pool awareness & acceptance:
In US & Europe ozone is used as a swimming pool disinfectant since many decades. Even private pools now use these technologies, still there are many countries do not have suppliers & technology providers.
Now Chemtronics has developed stand alone easy to install plug & play type integrated ozone system for all kinds of swimming pool.
Due to lack of subject/technology awareness in many countries still ozone is still not very successful. This is mainly due to distinct ozone system for pool. But for the first time Chemtronics has come up with integrated ozone system for swimming pool.
