Ultraviolet Disinfection systems are a well known form of water sanitation. A UV system contains a special globe which produces UV light, this light shins through pool water flowing through the system killing off bacteria, chloramines and other toxic by-products of chlorine.
Traditionally Pool operators were limited to using chlorine disinfection systems however, UV water disinfection systems have proven that ultraviolet treatment with low levels of free chlorine has major benefits
Benefits of a UV System include:
- Visibly clearer water, with a reduction in odours
- Less irritants in the water reducing red, stinging eyes and skin irritations
- Less damage to pool structure and linings cause by chlorine by-products
- UV disinfection is highly effective at destroying micro organisms that are chlorine resistant, such as Giardia and Cryptosporidium
