Chemical disinfection involves using chlorine. Chlorination can take place in various ways, for example with a dosing pump that adds chlorine to the pool water, or with chlorine tablets for smaller pools. Hellebrekers is BRL-certified, which means that we are a recognised and therefore reliable service provider for installing tanks containing chemical substances.
Salt electrolysis is a popular disinfection method that reduces the chlorine content of pool water. This method involves separating a saline solution into sodium and chloride, using membrane technology. The resulting chloride is then pumped into the pool water. Although salt electrolysis still uses chlorine, it eliminates the need for chlorine transport and storage because the chlorine is produced on site.
UV-C disinfection is often used in combination with filters and chlorine disinfection. The radiation from the UV-C light neutralises bacteria, viruses and other micro-organisms and prevents them from multiplying. In addition to tackling micro-organisms, UV-C technolgoy can also reduce bound chlorine levels in a swimming pool.
