How UV Clear Pool Sanitizers Work
Let's begin with your pool equipment. In order for your pool water to be cleaned it must be circulated. The pool pump is the source for circulating the pool water. The pump draws water from the pool and is directed to the filter. The filter does exactly what it is named for. It traps particles and debris. After the water is filtered it is directed to your UV Pool Sanitizer. The filtered water enters the inlet of the UV System. Water flows through the length of the UV chamber. It is inside the chamber that microorganisms absorb powerful UV light. It is this light energy that destroys or inactivates these 'bugs'.

A majority of residential pool owners use some form of chlorine to sanitize the water. They normally maintain anywhere from 1 part per million to 3 part per million (ppm) in chlorine. With the addition of UV Systems you can now save up to 70% in the cost of chlorine. Wouldn't it be encouraging to know that you can rely on your UV System when the sanitizer level falls below the norm?

Once the water leaves the UV chamber it is returned to your pool. Many pools have a chlorine feeder which can be metered so you can control the level of chlorine. The amount of chlorine in the pool water is called sanitizer residual. We have field studies and reports from customers that are maintaining their chlorine residual at 0.3 part per million (ppm), 0.5 ppm and 1.0 ppm. It's possible that your drinking water could have a chlorine reading higher than .3 ppm.

Pool owners that have sensitivity issues toward chlorine can now enjoy the benefits of UV System by maintaining a lower than normal chlorine residual. If given a choice wouldn't you rather swim in less chemicals anyway? Swim in a clean fresh smelling swimming pool with UV .
