Water disinfection is one of the key treatments for all types of public or private swimming pools. The efficient disinfection of pool water is essential for private pools, but even more so for public pools, whose operators are required to comply with regulations and strict standards in order to preserve the hygienic conditions and the health of users.
Chlorine is still the most widely used disinfectant for the treatment of pool water. However, awareness of its negative effects and by-products is also increasingly widespread.
More and more industry figures are choosing UV technology to disinfect the water used in swimming pools, water parks, spas and thermal spas.
The use of UV technology eliminates or significantly reduces chlorine dissolved in the water, thus increasing the wellbeing of bathers and reducing eye and skin irritation, as well as the unpleasant chlorine odour.
Treatment with UV light ensures water with no pathogens or the production of chlorinated by-products, which are harmful to health and can cause corrosion.
The use of UV technology is particularly suitable for spas and thermal baths: UV-C radiation maintains the chemical and physical properties of water without affecting its beneficial and healing properties.
