One application where ozone has proven its effectiveness is the treatment of swimming pool water, for the disinfection of which chlorine is usually used. Ozone and swimming pool
As is well known processing of pool water it is a complex application with high requirements, due to the very wide variety of pollutants that can be found dissolved in water.
Ozone and swimming pool
In addition to the polluting substances caused by the users themselves (bacteria, viruses, urine, sweat, oils, hair, cosmetics, etc...), many times the pollutants coming from the environment in which the pool is located must also be dealt with.
Experience shows that a significant amount of organic compounds, insects, leaves, dust and gaseous pollutants accumulate in outdoor swimming pools. Since existing pool systems operate by recirculating their water, the latter exhibits an ever-increasing concentration of pollutants.
For these reasons, choosing the ideal pool water treatment system is a very important point.
kids Ozone is the most powerful natural oxidizer that we can use in the treatment of pool water. By using ozone to treat swimming pool water we achieve the following:
• Bacterial disinfection
• Inactivation of viruses
• Oxidation of both soluble iron-manganese
as well as the rest of the organic and inorganic compounds
• Removal of odors and tastes
• Removal of algae
• Micro-flocculation of organic compounds dissolved in water
Compared to chlorine, the use of ozone in pool water treatment offers many advantages, but it is recommended to use the two elements in parallel in a ratio of 80% ozone – 20% chlorine.
The combination of ozone and chlorine therefore allows a very significant reduction in chlorine consumption
