For over a century, chlorine has been the preferred disinfectant for making sure the water is free of unhealthy bacteria. This White Paper presents an overview of safe swimming pool solutions that ensure minimised use of both energy and chlorine and high water quality.
Most of the technologies used for swimming pools and water parks have hardly changed in the last 100 years. Chlorine is the best way to make sure the water is free of unhealthy bacteria, but using large quantities is no longer always necessary. By rethinking water treatment and ventilation concepts, the chlorine content can be greatly reduced. This protects people from the smell and itchy eyes, and at the same time paves the way to big savings in operational costs.
Improved overall resource efficiency
Another important perspective on the growing pool market is the trends towards larger, advanced pools that in turn lead to an increased use of water, energy and chemicals. The risk is that operating costs rapidly escalate. There are, of course, physical limits for how efficient a very resource-intensive facility like a swimming pool can become, but the opportunity to bring down the consumption of water, chemicals and energy is certainly available.
This white paper provides numerous examples of how owners of public pools have reduced their operating costs and at the same time achieved a more healthy environment.
