Reduce your reliance on chemical flocculants in pools and hot tubs with HydroFLOW®

It really is worth taking a good look at our non-chemical water treatment solutions for swimming pools and spas.

I imagine a world in which every swimming pool can be as efficient and eco-green (not algae green) as possible. Isn’t it OK to have our luxuries if we also take care of our planet? There are technologies out there which make real differences. Technology can offer solutions which are sustainable, profitable and designed for the lives we lead today.

In this blog, Non-chemical water treatment for swimming pools and spas – I want to focus on how HydroFLOW® is a realistic alternative to using chemical flocculants. HydroFLOW® acts as a non-chemical flocculant. This helps the filter system operate to its’ maximum performance.

In previous blogs, I demonstrated how HydroFLOW® reduces water wastage. I also explored some real-life scenarios where we helped leisure centres reduce heating costs too (link to backwashing blog)

HydroFLOW® does these two things because it helps the pool filtration system operate to its maximum performance.

Filters in swimming pools and spas remove small, suspended particles from the water. The most basic idea is that they act like a sieve, allowing the water to pass through, but picking out these particles. The smaller the particle, the harder it is for the filter to remove it.

Some pool users will add chemical flocculant to help the filter perform better. HydroFLOW® is able to flocculate without the cost of chemicals. And the flock formed is stronger and longer lived than chemically formed flock. That is why we call this a non-chemical flocculation process.

Real world examples of how HydroFLOW® water conditioners reduce the need for chemical flocculants.

So how does HydroFLOW® do this?

HydroFLOW® became a patented technology in 1992 and has been British Made since then.

The HydroFLOW® unit comprises of a transducer, power supply and ferrite ring. It fits easily around a pipe and has little running costs. A simplified explanation can be found here.

Swimming pools can vary in size from domestic spas to Olympic sized pools, but they all have some features in common, and therefore all suffer from similar problems that we can address with Hydropath Technology products.

As a general guide:

The K40 is designed to improve the water quality of home swimming pools, hot tubs and spas.

For public swimming pools, we have a range of commercial units designed for different pipe sizes.
