Producing the cleanest and clearest pool water starts with a quality Ultra Violet Light Sanitation System. Chemicals including chlorine, are reduced by up to 80%. Harmful chloramines are eliminated, which means that you can now swim under the water with your eyes open and the end result is no red eyes and dry skin. The amount of chlorine required is the same amount found in the city drinking water.
Compatibility: UV systems are compatible with all pool pumps and filters. Most installations are retrofit to existing pool equipment. They take up less than a square foot of ground space, making installations in small spaces easier. The only requirement is a standard 3-prong 120v electrical wall plug.
Maintenance: The only consumable part is the UV light, which has a lifespan of 13,000 hours or about 2 years of swimming in Winnipeg. It is also very easy to change and easily done in minutes. Pool maintenance is far easier and less vacuuming is required.
Health Benefits: We all know smell of when you walk into public pools and smell that strong chlorine odor and wonder how that effects our health. With a Ultraviolet light sanitation system, chlorine levels are the same as in city drinking water and you eleminate that chlorine smell. Your pool water will be like your bath water and will leave your skin feeling smooth after swimming. Your body and your skin will thank you.
How It Works: Water is pumped through the inlet fitting at the bottom of the unit and is moved slowly by the UV light. This gives the UV light time to be effective in killing the bacteria. The water is then pushed through the outlet fitting and back into your pool. The Ultra Violet light emits an intense germicidal light ray at 254 nanometers, which destroys micro-organisms. This concentrated electromagnetic ray also eradicates organic matter, eliminating the formation of chloramines. No pressure, we don't understand the exact chemistry either. We just know it works and works very well. This is also why it has been in use for over 10+ years disinfecting public drinking water and waste water.
Effectiveness: UV light is effective in destroying 99.99% of all algae, germs, viruses, yeasts, molds, cysts, and much more! Operating a UV system is one of the most economical ways to keep your pool clean and clear. With units we have installed over the past 4 years, we have had a lot of feedback from customers who are using no chlorine and still have clear and clean water! The small amount of chlorine is recommended just to treat any "dead" spots in your pool that may have poor water turnover, where that water does not make it through your UV system regularly. By vacuuming your pool you are also eliminating these "dead areas."
How Do UV Light Systems Compare: UV light systems leave your skin feeling soft just like you got out of the bath. No salt water taste or strong chlorine! UV sanitizers is our number one choice among customers who are looking to save money on maintenance costs by reducing chemical usage.
How Does This Effect The Life of My Pool Liner? Your liner will last longer and look better than with a conventional chlorine pool or a salt water pool. UV systems are also easier on your pool plumbing, pool equipment, and your pool walls and floor if you ever have a pool leak.
