Ultraviolet light is a form of radiation that can be found in sunlight. It is located in the range 100-400 nanometers wavelength, between the xy visible light rays. UV short wave radiation (UVC 200-280nm) has a germicidal capacity, effectively kills bacteria and other microorganisms. This effect is crucial to disinfect the pool water, allows a clean water without the need to use chemicals potentially aggressive for swimmers.
The ultraviolet disinfection drastically reduces the production of chloramines (free chlorine) which occur upon contact with chlorine different organonitrogen (cosmetics, sweat, etc.) entering the water through bathers. Chloramines are responsible for the strong smell of chlorine and irritation of eyes and mucous membranes.
The ultraviolet ray irradiation equipment passed the filtered water by a sealed chamber, where it is irradiated with ultraviolet light. This radiation alters the DNA of the microorganisms present in the water, killing them and prevents them from reproducing.
Main advantages of UV equipment
Disinfecting water without the need to use chemical chlorine and the advantages are remarkable different from the first day of use:
- transport and storage of chemicals is avoided
- Goodbye to the strong smell of chlorine and irritation of eyes and mucous
- Easy installation and maintenance
- It keeps the pool water in good condition and virtually effortless
- fully automatic computer
There are some aspects to consider when choosing a team of UV radiation: the volume of the pool and pH regulation.
1. The volume of the pool
It is very important that the equipment is properly sized in relation to the volume of the pool. The water disinfection capacity is proportional to the lamp power. The calculation to determine the volume of the pool is simple: multiply the length by the width and the background. The result of the operation will be the m3 of water containing the pool.
2. pH Adjustment
This equipment can also automate pH regulation of pool water. The PH is the indicator measuring the acidity or alkalinity of the water. This parameter is very important because it will dictate the behavior of disinfection choose (chemical, UV, electrolysis or neolysis).
If a team is chosen regulation system may be supplied with equipment or dosing pump. The function of the metering pump is to inject corrective solution in the glass of the pool. Should not come built into your computer, you have to buy it separately.
The installation of this product automates the regulation of important parameters in maintaining perfect water pool. Do not forget to periodically check their status to confirm proper operation or detect abnormalities that could jeopardize water quality and the health of bathers.
