Swimming pool water
Water pollution in swimming pools is extremely high. Infectious viruses, bacteria, fungi, dissolved and undissolved organic matter can be detected in every swimming pool. Chlorine is currently the most common disinfectant in swimming pools. Unfortunately, this disinfectant has many disadvantages: it promotes the formation of harmful compounds, has high water and energy consumption, an unpleasant, irritating odour and create toxic chlorinated compounds. These persistent chlorinated pollutants accumulate and have unforeseen long-term effects on human health. This leads to rapidly growing popularity of cleaner and more efficient technologies – water ozonation systems.
Ozone is about 50 times more efficient water cleaning mean than mostly used chlorine. Also, ozone, unlike chlorine, leaves no harmful by-products and ozone is active not only against bacteria, but also against viruses, fungi, as well as it oxidizes unpleasant odours and harmful substances, like toxins. chloramines, organic matter. At least 99.9% (log 3) of even the most resistant pathological microorganisms and viruses are also destroyed by swimming pool water ozonation system. Ozone also has flocculant properties and is pH neutral (as opposed to chlorine reagents). Therefore, using such a system can reduce the consumption of not only chlorine reagents but also other chemicals by about 80%. Swimming pool ozonation technology is flexible and can usually be easily integrated into an already existing pool water treatment process without having major redesigning work.
