How does UV work?
The ultraviolet light works by killing microorganisms and destroying the bacteria’s DNA structure. When the bacteria are unable to repair the damage, the cells die.
Benefits of UV disinfection
Over the past decade UV has become an increasingly popular way to sanitize swimming pools, hydrotherapy pools and spas. One of the main reasons for its popularity is how much safer it is compared to chemically disinfecting the water alone, both to pool bathers and the environment. For many pool owners protecting their families from the sometimes harsh chemicals used to disinfect their pool, such a chlorine, is the main reason they opt for UV disinfection. The large amount of chemicals used have a negative impact on our environment and other living creatures such as pets and wildlife.
Another benefit of UV disinfection is that the levels do not need monitoring and maintaining, unlike chemical products which need to be controlled with strict measures. UV can therefore reduce your pool maintenance costs. Other equipment such as pool pumps, pool filters and heating sources last longer with less use of harsh chemicals.
