Pool Disinfection Systems

ERLANGER, Ky. — Aquionics medium pressure UV disinfection systems provide safe and effective treatment for pools, water rides and spas, increasing bather safety, reducing chemical consumption and extending equipment life. The systems destroy potentially harmful bacteria, such as cryptosporidium, which can cause skin and respiratory tract infections. Use of Aquionics UV systems allows chlorine levels to be kept to a minimum, with only a trace residual amount needed. UV also has an important secondary action — destruction of chloramines, the compounds responsible for corrosion of pool equipment and unpleasant smells in the pool. Aquionics systems use UV monitors and Photon controllers to measure and adjust lamp output. Automatic wipers keep the quartz sleeves surrounding the UV lamps clean, and power switching ensures UV output varies according to demand. The systems are compact and can usually be installed within existing pipe work. The only regular maintenance required is changing the UV lamp every six months — a simple operation that can easily be carried out by on-site staff.
