Darlly Europe Announce Revolutionary SaniStream Dosing System Solution The Health & Safety Executive’s recent publication ‘HSG282’, sets out specific and detailed guidelines for hot tubs installed in holiday let situations and places risk responsibility on holiday let owners and operators to ensure their installations are compliant. Section 76 of HSG282 deals with the specification of hot tubs installed in such a setting and prescribes that hot tubs must be “disinfected using bromine or chlorine through the use of an inline disinfectant feeder”. This ensures that the disinfectant is dosed continuously while the hot tub is in use or in a filter cycle, and avoids the peaks and troughs in disinfectant levels that would occur by hand dosing or the use of floating type dispensers. The great news is the team at Darlly Europe have invented a competitive and effective solution for HSG282 compliance for the majority of hot tubs on sale in the UK with the launch of their

revolutionary new SaniStream Direct Line Filtration System. SaniStream is an inline dosing dispenser which allows for the continuous dosing of chlorine and bromine tablets or granules. It is fully adjustable to allow for the regulation of sanitiser flow depending on the demands of the particular spa it is fitted in and it does not require the modification of any of the hot tub’s existing plumbing. SaniStream Direct Line Filtration System is designed to install in the void in the centre of an adapted Darlly filter cartridge, so that dosing is inline and continuous whenever the spa is in a filter cycle or in actual use – satisfying the key demands of HSG282 compliance. The design also allows easy access for inspection, refill or replacement, while keeping it locked away out of sight of consumers using the spa. Darlly Europe 01952 580500 www.darllyeurope.com
