Test of precoat filtration technology for treatment of swimming pool water
The technical performance of a precoat filter was compared with that of a traditional sand filter. Particle concentration and size distribution were measured before and after the filtration of swimming pool water. Both the sand and precoat filters could reduce the particle concentration in the effluent. However, higher particle removal efficiency was generally observed for the precoat filter, especially for particles smaller than 10 μm in diameter. Adding flocculant improved the removal efficiency of the sand...
Pool water quality and prevalence of microbes in filter backwash from metro-Atlanta swimming pools
During the 2012 summer swim season, aquatic venue data and filter backwash samples were collected from 127 metro-Atlanta pools. Last-recorded water chemistry measures indicated 98% (157/161) of samples were from pools with ≥1 mg/L residual chlorine without stabilized chlorine or ≥2 mg/L with stabilized chlorine and 89% (144/161) had pH readings 7.2–7.8. These water quality parameters are consistent with the 2016 Model Aquatic Health Code (2nd edition) recommendations. We used previously validated real-time...
Sources of pharmaceuticals and personal care products in swimming pools
Pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs) in swimming pool water are hypothesized to originate from fill water and anthropogenic sources like urine, sweat, swimwear and body surfaces. However, research exploring PPCP origins in pools is lacking. This research investigates PPCP sources at 31 swimming pools. Pool water was analyzed for 24 representative PPCPs using advanced liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry techniques. Fill water was analyzed as a contamination source and to determine if swimmers...
Ingestion of swimming pool water by recreational swimmers
The volume of water ingested by swimmers while swimming is of great interest to individuals who develop risk assessments using quantitative microbial risk assessment or epidemiological approaches. We have used chloroisocyanurate disinfected swimming pool waters to determine the amount of water swallowed by swimmers during swimming activity. The chloroisocyanurate, which is in equilibrium with chlorine and cyanuric acid in the pool water, provides a biomarker, cyanuric acid, that once swallowed passes through the...
Fritz Sick Pool Cultec Parking Lot Rehabilitation
Improper grading in the parking lot of the Fritz Sick Swimming Pool in Lethbridge, Alberta, led to stormwater flooding in the building and breakdown of the lot’s asphalt and subgrade. The consultant and contractor were open to an approach Nilex proposed, based on a complete solution of supply and installation with a rapid turnaround for design. The ability to respond quickly with a solid solution was crucial to the decision process. Challenge The location of existing stormwater catch basins in the...
