RESIDENTIAL CARE HOMES: SALT CHLORINATION, CONTROL AND DOSING
Swimming pools in residential care homes have become an essential therapeutic tool due to the innumerable benefits that it brings to our elderly population and, for this reason, a service with a growing demand.
The regular use of this facility and the special user requirements mean that the pool water should be particularly well treated. Salt water chlorination is especially beneficial when the pool has a therapeutic function and allows many users who cannot use pools treated with conventional chlorine because of some kind of allergy or pathology to fully enjoy pools treated with salt water chlorination. The small salt concentration in the water causes an osmotic balance between the skin and the eyes, just as if it was an isotonic solution. This provides a high level of comfort for the sensitive skin and eyes of the elderly, and avoids dehydration of the skin and irritation to the eyes. Check out all the advantages of salt water chlorination for pools.
Innowater has an extensive range of salt water chlorinators that can provide enough chlorine for any size or type of pool. All models share the same architectural design, with high performance, electronically controlled power supplies and low-maintenance, compact cells.
As well as generating the chlorine, innowater provides you with the measuring and monitoring instruments needed for any commercial swimming pool. pH monitoring is essential because chlorine sanitizing power depends on it. Also, keeping a correct pH value is required in order to avoid lime deposits and algae blooms. Thus, pH monitoring and regulation, together with that of the chlorine, should be prevalent in every public facility. Basically, these instruments consist of a probe, which constantly monitors the pH or the chlorine of the pool, and an electronic monitoring system which, depending on the probe readings, activate a dosing pump or a salt water chlorinator in order to correct the measured values and keep them within the pre-determined range.
