WATER TREATMENTS & SYSTEMS

Creating A Clean And Safe Water Environment Whether in a domestic or commercial setting, providing a clean and safe environment is a must for any pool or spa owner. When it comes to water treatment, there’s no denying that traditional methods are still popular, effective and proven, but with an ever-increasing range of alternative products and systems on offer, is there such a thing as the best solution? With numerous options available for a variety of settings, this issue we examine what’s on offer By Jon Wadeson

hen it comes owning and operating pools and spas, enjoyment and relaxation should be top of the list in both commercial and domestic environments and when time is tight, ensuring the water is good quality can be guaranteed by implementing the right products and water treatment options that are proven to work, time after time. Until relatively recently, that meant relying on just a handful of options, however there are now a number of methods available for the treatment of water. So whilst tried and tested solutions still have their place and are indeed still popular, owners of pools and spas are becoming much more open to the use of less well-known water treatment options. UV is of course, one such system, but with that having been covered separately already in this issue, in this feature we take a closer look at a variety of water treatments and systems which are providing a clean and safe environment for bathers in both domestic and commercial settings.

A HEALTHY DOSE FROM GOLDEN COAST When it comes to pool maintenance, little and often is key and Swimmer pool chemicals from Golden Coast enable pool owners to get clean, clear and healthy water easily and effectively. “Golden Coast offers a wide range of Swimmer products, each designed for different aspects of water treatment, so you can tailor what you need to your pool’s requirements,” said Mitchel Percy, a member of the Technical Sales team at Golden Coast. In order to establish and maintain the right water balance, there are a number of products available, including Swimmer pH

Increaser and Reducer, Alkalinity Increaser and Calcium Hardness Increaser. When preparing to balance pool water, it might be necessary to add a chlorine stabiliser – such as Swimmer Chlorine Stabiliser Granules – to reduce the amount of chlorine lost to sunlight, making it easier to maintain the correct levels. To prevent and kill bacteria, the Swimmer Chlorine Sanitiser Selection offers an extensive choice of products to suit any pool, preferred dosing method and budget. Pool water can become contaminated by waste compounds that react with the chlorine to create chloramines, which irritate skin. Using oxidising products such as the Swimmer Pool Refresh destroys the chloramines, for clearer, more comfortable water. The Swimmer Pool Refresh is the easiest oxidiser to apply, as the contents of the pre-measured sachet can simply be added straight to the water. Rapid Shock Granules and Calcium Hypochlorite Granules are also available for larger quantity dosing. In the event that a pool suffers from algae, recovering it can be expensive and time consuming. “Golden Coast provides a range of Swimmer algicides that have been specially formulated to prevent and cure algae,” said Mitchel. “There are longlife or regular dosing products, but using both is the most effective way to avert the problem.”

cause common undesirable side effects associated with chlorine. Salt chlorinators convert salt in the water into an endless supply of ‘free chlorine’ that continuously oxidises or eliminates chloramines.
