Our Swimming Pool Water Treatment Systems Reduces Chloramine
The problem: Chloramines are the unpleasant chemical compounds which are formed when free chlorine reacts with nitrogenous compounds such as uric acid, urea, ammonia, histidine, and creatine introduced to the pool environment by bathers.
As the cause of itchy skin, eye irritations (red eye), headaches and unpleasant chemical odours, chloramines pose a significant problem for both leisure operators and bathers, with independent research linking chloramines as a cause of asthma in regular swimmers, lifeguards, and instructors.
How does UV provide a solution: The polychromatic wavelengths of medium pressure UV systems break the bonds within all three of the chloramine molecules (low-pressure UV is effective only on mono-chloramine):
Monochloramine (NH2Cl): 245 nm
Dichloramine (NHCl 2): 297 nm
Trichloramine (NCl 3 ): 260 nm and 340 nm
EFFECTIVE WATER TREATMENT: POOL UV LIGHT
The results of breaking down and removing the chloramines from the swimming pool environment is crystal clear water, fresh clean air and a significant reduction in skin and eye irritations. In addition, the requirement for ‘shock dosing’, and the use of additional chlorine is significantly reduced, and in most cases, combined chlorine levels are reduced to as little as 0.2 ppm.
