Odor in pools depends not to chlorine but to chloramine and chemical compounds, which are formed by improper treatment of pool water. Chloramines are generated by a mixture of two ingredients: chlorine disinfectants and sweat, oil and urine entering the swiming pools by swimmers.
Medora Corporation an industry-leader for THM Removal Systems (TRS), distribution tank mixing, and automated disinfectant control. Whether your system is chlorinated or chloraminated, we have answers to many of the most common water quality problems.
All Medora Corporation solutions are completely scalable for any size tank or system, from the smallest of potable storage tanks to biggest 100+ MG mega reservoirs!
Chlorine reacts with compounds in the swimming pool water to give rise to by-products. Although there is potentially a large number of chlorine-derived disinfection by-products (DBPs), the substances produced in the greatest quantities are chloramines. Chlorine reacts extremely rapidly with ammonia in the water to form chloramines (monochloramine, dichloramine and trichloramine).
Ozone is a very effective alternative to chlorine and other chemicals as a disinfection agent in swimming pools. Ozone can safely prevent the formation of chlorine byproducts, such as chloramines and trihalomethanes which are potentially carcinogenic.
Water is often used as a product, or as part of the manufacturing process. In many industrial applications, processes are chemical (chlorine) intolerant, and UV is widely adopted. atg UV Technology engineers will be pleased to discuss solving disinfection problems with you. As well as a powerful disinfectant, UV is used to remove chlorine, chloramines, ozone, bromine, and a wide variety of contaminants from industrial process water. Within micro-electronics facilities for example, UV is used to remove Total...
Our ultraviolet light water treatment for swimming pools are proven to significantly improve swimming pool treatment and improve water quality by breaking down problem chloramines – the cause of eye and skin irritations – and protect against harmful chlorine-resistant microorganisms such as Cryptosporidium. For operators wanting bright sparkling water, fresh clean air and residual chlorine levels as low as 0.5ppm. The UV pool treatment of choice worldwide for swimming pools, spas and water parks.
Studies have proven that chlorine use has negative consequences due to the formation of byproducts, i.e. chlorinated organic compounds and chloramines. Irritation of eyes and mucous membranes, drying out the skin as well as “chlorine smell” are well known troubles. However, these byproducts also accelerate the corrosion in pool halls and significant risk is given by their toxicity (chloramines, combined chlorine) and/or carcinogenicity. Higher rate of asthma prevalence is one of the consequences....
