Using water cleaning chemicals in spa and swimming pool water treatment

In our recent posts, we’ve been taking an in-depth look at spa and swimming pool water treatment methods. We’ve talked about operator responsibilities and the importance of a thorough monitoring and testing regime. We’ve explored how sanitising chemicals help prevent and kill bacteria to ensure a safe bathing environment and how water balancing chemicals help keep surfaces and pipework clean.

Water balancing chemicals in spa and swimming pool water treatment

Welcome to the third blog post in our recent series on spa and swimming pool water treatment. In our last blog post, we explored the role of sanitising chemicals. In this blog post, we look at the role of water balancing chemicals in spa and swimming pool water treatment.

The use of sanitisers in spa and swimming pool water treatment

In a recent blog post, we outlined three essential components of spa and swimming pool water treatment: sanitise, balance, clean. In this blog post, we explore the role of sanitising chemicals.

Sanitisers are the most important group of chemicals used for treating your spa or swimming pool. Their job is to quickly kill any bacteria that get into the water so that they cannot multiply and cause infections in users.

How do glycols prevent freezing in water treatment?

As outside temperatures drop to below 0oC in the winter months, there is a risk that water recirculating in chilled systems will freeze. In order to prevent the water from freezing, it is often necessary to add an a glycol-based antifreeze. 

A guide to spa and swimming pool water treatment

Both spa pools and swimming pools require close monitoring and control to ensure the water remains clean and safe for users. Water treatment chemicals play a big part in achieving this.

In this blog post, we look at the health risks and outline the crucial steps in spa pool and swimming pool water treatment, including the chemicals that play a vital role in keeping them safe for users.

B&V launches new range of spa and swimming pool chemicals

In October 2020, B & V Chemicals will be launching a new range of spa and swimming pool chemicals.

5 problems with closed circuit systems and how to solve them

The problems encountered in closed circuit systems are like those in open systems, such as scale and corrosion. However, the fixed volume of a closed system allows for water treatment products to be dosed at much higher levels than is possible in open systems, where water is constantly lost to drain.

Testing the effectiveness of corrosion inhibitors in closed circuit systems

Closed circuit systems are susceptible to corrosion, which can negatively impact the function of the system. The good news is that the low make-up of a closed system allows us to dose water treatment products at much higher levels than in open systems, where water is constantly lost to drains. Corrosion control can therefore be more easily achieved in closed circuit systems.

How inhibitors prevent corrosion and scale in closed circuit systems

Closed circuit inhibitors are often referred to as corrosion inhibitors, but their function is considerably more complex than that. Our closed circuit inhibitors are indeed specifically formulated to inhibit corrosion, but equally important is their ability to prevent the build-up of scale and to stop the deposition of suspended solids (fouling).

How to calculate closed circuit system volumes

In our recent blog posts, we’ve looked at the various chemicals and standards related to closed circuit systems. In this blog post, we take a step back and consider one critical piece of information: how to calculate the correct dose of chemicals to be used in a closed system.
