Manufactured from rugged 10-gauge HR commercial-grade steel and finished in a tough powder coat, they use a variation of the company’s standard disinfection chamber and are equipped with bottom-mounted ¼-in. drain plugs for winterization in seasonal applications. Available in flow rates from 6 to 16 gpm and equipped with 10- or 20-in. filter sumps, they speed installation, are easy to service and provide lasting value.
 

UV Monitoring

Company Reference: 

The UV Connect wireless logging device allows pool owners to remotely monitor the performance of UV systems. The logger plugs into any UV system and works with a complementary application to make data available on a smart phone or tablet. The app also is capable of monitoring other process equipment, such as pumps and filters. It provides information on system performance, alarm status, lamp running hours and operating parameters. Push notifications for alarm conditions also are available.

Company’s discoveries and improvements have been awarded numerous U.S. patents

When Atlantic Ultraviolet Corp. was founded in 1963, the use of ultraviolet (UV) light fixtures and equipment to eradicate bacteria, mold and viruses in water and air was in its infancy. This enabled the company to be at the forefront of developing more efficient ways to utilize this technology. One such discovery, which is still available today, was the 1970s design of the Sanitron UV water purifier.

Battle of the Disinfectants

Chlorine is and has been the No. 1 disinfectant used by water treatment systems throughout the world for more than 100 years. Currently, a majority of municipal water systems use chlorine to disinfect their drinking water. Recently, though, concerns over chlorine’s limitations have emerged, and research into alternative disinfectants is ongoing.

Diving Into Disease

Reading the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Web pages on recreational water illnesses (RWIs) is enough to make someone never want set foot in a swimming pool again. From the list of pathogens that can cause RWIs (which includes some nasty fellows, such as Cryptosporidium, Legionella, E. coli and more) to statistics on sources of disease (“on average, people have about 0.14 grams of feces on their bottoms”), the cringe factor is high.
