DOSING PUMPS & CONTROL SYSTEMS

Control Is The Key To Perfect Water Quality As dosing pumps and control systems quietly go about the business of applying regular and accurate chemicals to pool and spa water, it’s easy to overlook the fact that they have become essential pieces of equipment that make the lives of owners and operators significantly easier. In fact, the latest innovations mean ensuring pristine leisure time water has never been so simple and this issue, we roundup the increasingly advanced options on offer By Karen Witney

erfectly clear and safe pool and spa water is the holy grail for both owners and operators. So it’s great to know that the days of ‘bucket and chuck it’ are now a distant memory, and that’s largely thanks to today’s fabulous automatic systems which can now ensure tip top water perfection is both achievable and controllable. Commercial facilities have enjoyed the comfort of automation for many years but domestic users have now got behind the concept and are enjoying a new found and simplified ease of operation with the bonus of extra leisure time. Automatic management can be extended beyond water supervision and maintenance to lighting, heating and even music to suit the mood. In many cases, remote operation can be controlled through a smart phone or tablet, or computer so that the pool or spa is primed and ready for use well before the user has even donned their swim gear. As you’ll see, today’s systems are uncomplicated and user-friendly meaning that the most technically unsavvy person can skilfully ensure perfect water management and beyond at the touch of a button or swipe of a screen.

So how do domestic pool owners with limited or no specialist knowledge know that the water is safe while leaving the technical side to the experts? SEKO, manufacturer of world-leading IoTenabled swimming pool chemical dosing systems, has solved the problem by designing two distinct online tools for users and technicians – SekoAir and SekoWeb.
