The primary action of UV is to initiate photochemical and photoxidation reactions, which destroy chloramines, a range of compounds responsible for unpleasant smells in pools. This is particularly important for indoor pools where features such as water slides and waves give a greater surface area for the release of chloramines into the air. UV reduces the chloramine burden, making the atmosphere safer and more pleasant. UV has an important secondary action: it kills bacteria, viruses, and mold spores, thus reducing the risk of transmission of stomach, skin and respiratory tract infections to bathers.
UV is part of the electromagnetic spectrum, which includes visible light. Concentrated sunlight contains UV, which is a powerful natural disinfectant. Hanovia has been the world leader for 70 years in UV equipment for the purification of municipal and industrial water use. Now the same expertise and high quality equipment is available for the treatment swimming pool water. Hanovia equipment is effective within the guidelines of all state and local health agencies. UV allow safe reduction microbial contamination and chloramine levels to meet health guidelines.
SAFE AND ENVIROMENTALLY SOUND
UV is not hazardous and requires no breathing apparatus. It is effective against all microorganisms without the use of chemicals. A UV system treats a full recirculating flow and can reduce the amount of chlorine used. UV treatment provides excellent water quality and a more pleasant bathing environment.
EFFECTIVE, LOW-COST TECHNOLOGY
The capital investment is lower than other comparable technologies. UV's running costs are limited to electricity only. There are also considerable savings on chemicals, electricity, maintenance, and personnel. UV is simple to install and run, and can be added to new pools or retrofitted to older facilities. There are no additional filters, contact vessels or pumps needed.
