As water features, wave machines, flumes and splash pads raise the fun factor in swimming pools, traditional methods of disinfecting water with chlorine, cause problems for operators and customers alike. Higher water temperatures and increased turbulence in leisure pools require increased dosages of chlorine, leading to pool users complaining of burning eyes, red or itchy skin and an overpowering chlorine smell throughout the facility. In some extreme cases, the fabric of the building has been attacked by corrosive condensation.
Center Parcs demand the very best in water quality for their aquatic facilities and have utilised atg UV Technology for many years. Working with Neuman Aqua, leading designer/builders to the aquatics industry, atg UV were selected to provide 14 x Wafer (WF) UV systems to the £11m Subtropical Swimming Paradise project at Longleat Forest in Wiltshire, due for completion mid-2017.

At around a third of the size of comparative UV systems, and with significantly reduced maintenance space, the WF series is easy to install or retrofit into the tightest of plant rooms without compromising on performance. Currently being installed into 14 areas of the new development, these state of the art UV systems are set to eliminate problem chloramines and protect bathers against itchy skin, red burning eyes and overpowering smells associated with alternative chemical methods.
