Swimming pools & Spas
Swimming is an enjoyable, healthy activity performed by millions of people worldwide. However with the water in pools kept at a temperature of up to 31 °C and each pool user releasing contamination into the water, there is an ideal environment for the development of a biofilm of micro-organisms and bacteria. This means it is essential to employ an effective disinfection product, which both removes biofilm and controls the microbiological and bacterial growth.
For more than 100 years, the main disinfection product used in pool water in Europe has been Chlorine – calcium hypochlorite disinfection, which poses health and safety risks in both the water and the air quality in the pool environment. Additionally there is a concern to those responsible for maintaining the pools, as chlorine is corrosive and continued use causes damage to the pool fabric.
