Putting UV aside, there are numerous other products and systems available which tick all the necessary water treatment boxes. With choices suitable for a variety of settings, we highlight just some of the options By Karen Witney

ife is busy, non-stop ‘stuff’ that we all have to contend with day in day out and relaxation is often sadly out of reach. When it comes to pools and spas, enjoyment and relaxation should be top of the list in both commercial and domestic applications and when time is tight, ensuring the water is good quality can be guaranteed by implementing the right products and water treatment options that work. Commercial facilities are pretty well set when it comes to automatic treatment and with domestic consumers becoming more savvy, now is a good time to show them how to relax and smell the coffee not the chloramines!

GAFFEY’S HYPROLYSER® COMBINES WATER, SALT AND ENERGY Manufactured in the UK by Gaffey, the popularity of Hyprolyser® on-site hypochlorite generators for disinfection in commercial pools has increased significantly over the past decade, mainly due to the inherent health, safety and economical benefits on offer. Using only salt, water and energy, the Hyprolyser® produces a low strength sodium hypochlorite solution containing less than 1% chlorine, below the threshold for hazardous classification. The Hyprolyser® generates hypochlorite on demand, producing a stock of fresh chemical each day and eliminating the need for operators to handle frequent chemical deliveries and store hazardous chlorine chemicals on-site. Due to the generated solution being much lower in caustic content than commercial hypochlorite products, chemical injection points do not scale-up, removing the need for injector cleaning by the operator. This benefit alone significantly reduces the likelihood of accidents and chemical contact and affords a big improvement in the reliability of disinfection and dosing system. British salt mines produce abundant

supplies of some of the best quality salt in the world. Using salt as the raw ingredient for generating disinfectant offers some surprising environmental benefits too; for example, for operators using traditional packaged calcium hypochlorite products in drums, switching to bagged salt results in a 92% reduction in the use of plastic for the same quantity of chlorine produced, not to mention a similar reduction in energy and water involved in recycling it. The introduction of Hyprolyser® models for smaller commercial pools, such as the iSEC® and Compact models, has been a key driver in the growth of Gaffey. Prominent UK operators such as Thorpe Park Resort, Center Parcs, Royal Commonwealth Pool and Wiltshire Council were early adopters of the Hyprolyser® and, witnessing the benefits to their operations, have since installed multiple units in their facilities.
