Ultraviolet light and Hydrogen Peroxide have been used in treatment of water for a number of years commercially. The
method is nothing new or experimental. This system has been used in hospital therapeutic whirlpools, workout pools,
and health resorts. Pool and Spa King has always tried to give our customers the most reliable and maintenance free
spas and pools as possible. It was only natural that we use the best technology available for the water maintenance
of our pools and spas.
With this system, the ultraviolet light takes the place of the bromine and chlorine that is used to kill bacteria.
This is done by passing 100% of the water through a ultraviolet light chamber. This results in a 99% bacterial kill
by effecting the DNA in the organism. The bacteria cannot reproduce creating sterile water. Bacteria is one of the
primary causes for skin rashes in spas.
Once the bacteria has been eliminated, Hydrogen Peroxide is added to the water as an oxidizer. The Hydrogen Peroxide
is introduced into the water by means of a small metering pump. This pump regulates the amount of peroxide needed.
Oxidizers eat up organic material. In a spa or pool, this organic material is usually body oils, soaps, cosmetics,
and lotions that wash off a persons skin in hot water. These organics produce, in chemical systems, the unpleasant
orders, cloudy water, brown foam, and scum lines around the spa (bathtub ring). The Hydrogen Peroxide eliminates
these problems creating low water maintenance for your spa or pool.
