UV Systems use use a method of ruining water trough ultraviolet light to kill bacteria and sanitize pool.

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 .

Yes the same principle should aply too any pool.

Salt systems are nice, however, I have seen a customer turn a salt water pool system into a battery. NOT GOOD.. I would recommend using a UV System.

Most of the high frequency UV radiations are absorbed by the ozone layer. This layer is present as a pool of ozone molecules inside the atmosphere.

The water is run through very strong ultraviolet light.

A basic ozone layer is a pool of ozone molecules. They absorb the UV.

No. A salt system uses plain table salt to generate chlorine - hypochlorous acid - and sodium hydroxide. This means that it will raise your pool's pH, which will result in you needing more of a pH-lowering chemical such as muriatic or dry acid. People who use a salt-water pool will notice that the water feels much softer than a traditional pool. There is, however, still chlorine in the water. A UV system is less common. It is used as a secondary sanitizer only, as it helps to kill some organisms that are resistant to chlorine. It does not affect your pool chemistry significantly, and can be used in conjunction with a salt system.

Ozone layer is a pool of ozone molecules. It protects us from harmful UV rays.

It is common to hear confusion about the difference between ozone and UV systems. They are, in fact, completely different technologies but confusion may come from UV-generated ozone that was used in residential pools and spas before breakthrough compact CD ozone generators came on the scene in the late 1990s. Today, UV generated ozone is never used in commercial pool settings because the systems cannot make enough ozone to benefit the pool water. CD generated ozone, on the other hand, is extremely safe and effective for pool water sanitation.Both Ozone and UV provide effective reduction of Cryptosporidium (Crypto), however, there are clear differences in other areas of concern for commercial aquatics designers and operators. The advantage, in these cases, goes to Ozone over UV.Ozone is a powerful oxidizer.Ozone gas dissolves in water to kill microorganisms, destroy organics that create chloramines, and breaks down existing chloramines by oxidation. Meanwhile, UV light inactivates microorganisms and breaks down chloramines with light energy, but this is only possible while the water is in the UV chamber, and as long as the water has no turbidity. Once the flow leaves the chamber no further process occurs. UV provides no oxidation except as trace amounts as a result of the formation of a limited number of hydroxyl free radicals. Ozone and UV are comparable in cost.Ozone and UV technologies are comparably priced. Operational costs of each system vary with the local price of electricity. However, the minimal maintenance and reduced chemical requirements of an ozone system create significant benefits. Meanwhile, UV lamps must be replaced every 3 to 12 months and must be figured into the maintenance costs for these systems. Source: Del Ozone Aquatics

Yes as a matter of fact it is used in water sanitising systems.

Most pool covers are typically made of a UV-stabilized polyethylene or polypropylene; some are also made with a deterioration resistant vinyl.

It will heat up some but not as much as under direct sun. You can get a sunburn on a cloudy day because the clouds do not block UV as well as IR however the UV doesn't do much to heat up a pool.

UV-B and more energetic radiation. In doing so, it breaks down into its components, something like: O3 + energetic light -> O + O2 Ozone and ultraviolet (UV-C or UV-B) in the air, produces mostly hot oxygen. Ozone and UV-A produces ozone, and the UV-A just moves on. Ozone and ultraviolet (UV-C or UV-B) in water produce one of the most powerful oxidizing systems available (better is to add some TiO2 slurry), and is referred to as "Advanced Oxidation".

If UV kill pathogen microorganisms(GERMS,BACTREIAS,VIRUSES,FUNGI) in UV water filtering systems,it can surely kill yeasts and fungi in the blood submitted to the UV irradiation .All we need is a NEW DR BECK WHO WILL DESIGN A DIALYSIS STYLE machine in which the blood WILL FLOW from the right hand to the left or the opposite after being submitted during his flow in a transparent tube to UV irradiations.

Cleaning up a swimming pee-ulUV stand for Ultraviolet and passing these rays through the waters of a swimming ppol sanitises the pool. As you know the swimming pool is a confleunce of human urine of all smells, odours and density. The water is stagnant and collects all body dirt and refuse when people revel in taking a swim or bath in the pool. That's why people used to take bath and swim in the free flowing waters of the rivers where no dirt collects. Sanitation of swmiing pools used to be done through adding chemicals but again these chemicals affected human bodies and some chemicals induced urination. Added to this it is only natural for anyone to pee at the touch of cool water. So now they have come up with the UV treatment of the water so that people can bath, swim in a stagnated pool of urine and refuse....That a swimming pool is of water is a myth...actually it is an amalgm of urine. UV treatmen is already in vogue for drinking water and it is said to be effective.

The UV rays are of three types. they are UV-A, UV-B, UV-C.

UV light for a swimming pool is a physical system. A "system" is placed after the pump and heater. Water passes by the UV light bulb and is sanitized. There are no chemicals generated, no disinfection by products, andUV destroys more bacteria, germs and virus than any other system.This is considered UV-C germicidal wavelength. Some Ozone generators use UV -B a lower wavelength to generate ozone. Though these systemsprovide significant sanitation close to the level of UV, they generate disinfection by products and create respiratory irritants. You can find more information on UV at

The sand filters used for swimming pools clarity is upto 30-40microns But UV will be more effective if sediment have clarity of 5-10microns Requires pretreatment with a sediment filter (5-10micron).

aromatic compounds due to the existence of the conjugated pi-bond systems.
