Coventry, RI (PRWEB) May 01, 2014
Neptune Benson, leading manufacturer of commercial aquatic filtration systems, ultraviolet disinfection systems and aquatics components, is proud to have installed the ETS-UV disinfection system in the YMCA of Greenwich, Connecticut.
Ultraviolet Disinfection systems combat the corrosive by-product of chlorine disinfection, known as chloramines. Chloramines contribute to the odor, irritation, athletic asthma, and enhanced corrosion at indoor pools. Chloramines are also responsible for drying out skin and causing “red eye.”
The 50M pool at the YMCA of Greenwich has been a hotspot for water activities. Every ounce of water is utilized and enjoyed. Health codes regulate the maximum permissible levels of chloramines, which is often difficult to meet at high-end indoor pools. Chloramines escape the pool in the form of a corrosive gas, which degrades the facilities and is a respiratory and dermal irritant to the staff and patrons. The YMCA of Greenwich decided to reduce chloramines and improve air quality for its swimmers.
The Neptune Benson ETS-UV system has been installed and the results are incredible. Consistent readings of zero chloramines are being recorded daily.
“We are very happy with the ETS-UV system. We were looking for an easy solution to our chloramine problem and the ETS system worked like a charm. Wish we had installed this system when the pool was built,” says Edward Philipp, Chief Excecutive Officer, YMCA of Greenwich.
Validated medium pressure UV has become the standard for improving air quality at indoor commercial pools. UV not only controls harmful chloramines, but also highly disinfects chlorine tolerant pathogens responsible for 75% of all recreational water illnesses reported to the CDC. The CDC’s Model Aquatic Health Code includes recommendations for validated UV on all pools designed for children under the age of five and all therapy pools.
