Chlorinate Your Small Pool Efficiently
For aquatic managers, ensuring your pool's water is properly chlorinated is one of the most important steps in keeping your pool operational and your water sparkling clear. Recently, new patent-pending high capacity erosion (HCE) technology was developed, resulting in better-performing systems for delivering calcium hypochlorite solutions, with a feeder designed for medium and large commercial swimming pools and recreational water facilities.
But what if you're operating a smaller facility?
Solutions for Smaller Facilities
If you're operating a smaller swimming pool or aquatic facility and are interested in gaining all of the advantages of HCE technology, you'll be pleased to find that economical feeders using the new technology are available for the sanitization of smaller pools, allowing your facility to reap all the benefits of calcium hypochlorite with an economical solution.
These new feed systems provide better performance and more accurate chlorine delivery while lowering maintenance and reducing your facility's carbon footprint. They can treat smaller facilities—anywhere from a small decorative fountain all the way up to a 100,000-gallon pool. The low maintenance requirements make it ideal for motel pools, kiddie pools, splash pads and spas, and other facilities that feature smaller pools.
Like the feeder designed for larger facilities, the new systems incorporate HCE technology. This technology works in conjunction with calcium hypochlorite briquettes to produce a fresh concentrated liquid chlorine solution, which is concentrated during the feeder's recirculation process, and kept in optimum suspension for maintaining consistent solution strength. It represents a big advance from earlier spray technologies and conventional erosion feeders. Independent third-party testing has verified that the HCE technology feeder delivers highly accurate test results—important because precise metering of calcium hypochlorite solution helps a pool achieve optimum chlorination while providing protective calcium.
The new, smaller feeder is simply scaled down to serve lower volumes of water with less demand. In addition, the feeder incorporates a feature that creates more agitation in the chlorinating section of the feeder to extend maintenance intervals.
A downside to using calcium hypochlorite in the past has been scale buildup in the feed system, which requires frequent cleanings.
The development of HCE technology has made it possible to reduce the frequency of maintenance to quarterly or even seasonal cleanings. With typical summer pools and aquatic facilities open for a total of 100 days, it is possible that using the HCE technology feeder means no maintenance will be needed for the entire swimming season.
Minimizing maintenance frees up your staff to take care of other important jobs while continuing to maintain sparkling, clear pool water.
