Precision Control Of Water Quality And So Much More! Reliable, essential and increasingly high tech, dosing pumps and control systems are the unsung heroes in any water treatment system as they quietly go about the business of ensuring accurate amounts of chemicals are delivered to the water within swimming pools and spas. Convenient and easy to use, the automation they provide has made the life of owners and operators that much simpler and we roundup what’s available By Jon Wadeson

ystems that expertly control water treatment are a must in today’s commercial market and are also sought after in ever increasing numbers in the growing and demanding consumer market place too. So what are the benefits of automatic dosing and control systems? The biggest has to be safety. To have equipment installed room that recognises, reacts and then treats frequently changing bather loads and ensures that water users are protected from horrors such as cryptosporidium or giardia is quite frankly priceless. From a ‘nasties’ point of view, perfectly regulated pool water is the first line of defence in providing a safe and trouble free wet leisure experience for bathers and offers peace of mind to owners. It also ensures swimmers skin and eyes are not irritated by spent chlorine or water that has an out of balance pH. Any guesswork is removed out of water treatment process, allowing owners and operators to spend less time testing and guessing, leaving them to pass the responsibility over to the automatic mechanical marvels that efficiently take control. Some automated management can be extended beyond just water supervision and anything from maintenance to lighting, heating to even audio and entertainment systems can now be controlled. In many cases, remote operation is available through a smart phone, tablet or computer so that the pool or spa is primed and ready for action 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.
