The PRO POOL UV is designed for disinfection of residential pool and spa water, providing cost-effective treatment and improved water clarity. The system utilizes high output, low-pressure UV lamps powered by electronic ballasts which are housed within the centre enclosure. The water is routed through a narrow diameter and long flow path, ensuring close and extended UV contact. This design also ensures that the Quartz Sleeves are continuously rinsed by the water flow, avoiding the typical encrustations which would affect UV sanitising performance. The inlet and outlet allow easy connection onto existing or new pipework systems and provides complimentary protection against chlorine-resistant organisms, as well as enhanced algae control.
UV treatment is compatible with all other sanitisers, including chlorine; bromine; active oxygen; peroxide; and copper-based compounds, and allows for the levels of these to be significantly reduced. UV treatment introduces no by-products into the water, but also has no residual effect and therefore a small background level of disinfectant should always be maintained.
