Safety measures for chlorine use

It is essential to follow safety guidelines when using chlorine. This includes wearing protective clothing, accurately measuring chlorine doses and regularly testing the water to keep chlorine levels within recommended limits.

Methods to reduce chlorine levels

There are several methods to reduce the amount of chlorine in your pool, including manual dilution by adding fresh water, using chemical neutralisers, or deploying UV light systems that break down chlorine.

The role of a dosing pump in chlorine management

A dosing pump can provide an efficient solution for managing chlorine levels. These devices automatically dose the right amount of chlorine to the pool water based on the current need, which helps prevent over- or under-dosing.

How a dosing pump works

A dosing pump works by accurately measuring and injecting a preset amount of chlorine into the pool water. This process can be set manually or adjusted automatically based on real-time water quality tests.

Selection criteria for a dosing pump

When choosing a metering pump, it is important to consider several factors such as pump capacity, compatibility with your pool system, and user-friendliness.

Impact of too much chlorine on the environment

It is also important to think about the environmental impact of pool chemicals. Too much chlorine can harm not only swimmers but also the environment. Sustainable swimming pool practices can help minimise this impact.
