Whether you have a salt water pool or it's sanitised with liquid chemicals, we have a large range of chlorinators and chemical feeders to keep your pool safe and enjoyable to swim in.
The primary job of a sanitiser (ie. chlorinator, ozone, chemical dosser) is to kill bacteria present in the water. It is the most important aspect of a pool in terms of ensuring healthy and safe water quality.
The type used is dependent on pool location, water temperature, pool usage and bather loads.
Chlorinators are the most popular sanitation method used in Australia. Found on over 80% of pools, they are often referred to as salt water pools and provide easy maintenance. Salt is added to the pool and the chlorinator converts this to chlorine gas through electrolysis.
Another method of sanitation involves the addition of liquid or dry chlorine to the water. These pools are often referred to as fresh water pools. These typically require more maintenance as the chemicals are generally added manually, however maintenance can be reduced by using an automated chemical dosser.
Ozone pools, as the name suggest use ozone to sanitise the water. Ozone is a very effective sanitiser however as there is no test available to measure ozone levels in the pool traditionally this has meant that these systems have had to be used in conjunction with another chlorine based sanitiser to provide residual chlorine levels. However new technology means that other chlorine free sanitisers can now be used.
Minerals pools are gaining in popularity. They operate in much the same way as a salt water pool, however minerals added to the water produce sanitation whilst providing health benefits for the swimmer. Mineral blends vary but typically include Magnesium, Potassium and/or Borates, this result in softer, clearer water. There are many blends on the market and it’s important to check compatibility with your chlorinator.
