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.

Pool Purification

As winter becomes nothing more than a memory and the days get warmer, our thoughts are quickly turning to the lazy, hazy days of summer. And nothing is more refreshing on a hot summer day than a dip in the pool.

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.

The 'Razor Blade' Side of UV Sales

Ultraviolet (UV) disinfection products are one of the fastest growing segments of the water treatment market today. One of the advantages of selling UV systems is that every system a dealer sells should generate an annual UV lamp replacement sale for as long as the system is in service. The challenge is that the technology that has existed in the UV market to date has yet to fully capture this annuity, or “razor blade,” UV lamp business.
