SWIMMING POOL CHLORINATOR SYSTEM GUIDE
In the typical residential swimming pool, there is no pool automation system. Pool water testing and water adjustments are made manually (or in some cases not at all). Today’s pool owner doesn’t have time or the patience to test water daily (commercial pool laws require hourly testing). So the typical backyard pool gets tested about once a week. In between testing, the systems in place to control critical parameters like pH and sanitizer levels can be best described as woefully inadequate.
In smaller pools with lots of use, the chlorine level can move toward 0 in a matter of minutes. Residential pools simply aren’t equipped to handle rapid changes in bather load and organic matter. Chlorine is usually added with a crude automatic chlorinator or a chlorine generator, also called a salt water pool system. By the way, a salt chlorine generator itself is not considered pool automation because adjustments to chlorine output and pH are made manually. Although these devices do add chlorine, they almost always add chlorine in the wrong quantities, resulting in either too much chlorine or not enough chlorine.
Pool automation can make your pool safer, healthier, and easier to manage than pools without automation. You can save money too. You’ll reduce water changes, saving thousands of gallons of water. Pool automation minimizes the need for chemicals (especially when combined with ultraviolet disinfection) because you’re always putting in a precise amount of the right chemical. And pool automation is better for the environment.
