Health Benefits of UV Treatment in Swimming Pools

Why UV?

UV systems are used for two main reasons in the treatment of swimming pool water, disinfection of chlorine resistant organism’s and chloramine reduction.

Chloramine Reduction

Chlorine is the primary disinfectant for swimming pool water to keep it sanitary and free of harmful microorganisms.

The issue with only using chlorine in swimming pools is that the chlorine reacts very rapidly with nitrogen compounds in the water.

Bathers in pools introduce substances to the pool water such as urine, sweat and skin cells. These contaminants contain high levels of uric acid, urea, ammonia, histidine, and creatinine. This creates chlorine by-products commonly known as Chloramines, which include Monochloramine, Dichloramine and Trichloramines.

Chloramines cause ‘red eye’, headaches, unpleasant odours, skin irritation and respiratory irritation tract of swimmers

The AQS-PL Medium pressure range of UV systems emit polychromatic UV radiation. The multiple wavelengths in our medium pressure UV lamps, destroy the molecular bonds of combined chlorine/Chloramine compounds. Therefore, UV removal of Chloramines is a non-chemical and reliable method to control combined chlorine in Swimming pools.

Disinfection of Chlorine Resistant organisms, including Cryptosporidium

Cryptosporidium can be treated by Chlorine, but at only very high levels of concentration i.e. shock chlorination.

Cryptosporidium is a parasite that causes Cryptosporidiosis, which in turn, causes nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea and can be extremely harmful to the very young, very old and infirm.

The AQS-PL UV systems are sized and designed to achieve a minimum of a 99.9% reduction of Cryptosporidium, therefore guaranteeing safe bathing for all with no risk of Chlorine resistant organisms surviving in the water.
