Pool Cleaning is a serious business because various contaminants come into the swimming pool through the swimmers and the surrounding environment. This promotes the growth of bacteria, infectious viruses and pool parasites in the swimming water leading to an unhygienic pool. This in turn causes various water-borne diseases. Hence, regular maintenance is needed to ensure a pool remains sparkling clean, free from harmful substances and is suitable for swimmers.
Swimming Pool Treatment Solutions
Impure and unhygienic pool water needs quick solutions. A standard treatment for?swimming?pool water generally encompasses the following steps:
- Filtration?is the most common method to remove the impurities from pool water. It is generally carried out in two stages where the first stage removes larger particles like hairs, parasites, and the second stage removes small particles and debris.
- Disinfection leads to inactivation of unwanted microorganisms and chemical decomposition of organic material. This is usually done by chlorination of the water treatment. Other methods like ionization, ozone, and UV-treatment can also be used for the disinfection of pool water. All these alternatives have their respective pros and cons.
- Also,?chemical treatment?is often used to soften the water (by removing calcium and magnesium ions). A process called flocculation causes the formation of micro and macro flakes which in turn form larger particles which can be removed by filtration.
