An Introduction to Sanitation

Original Presentation Date: May 13th, 2020

This program will walk through the benefits of adding supplemental sanitization to a pool. Even in a properly chlorinated body of water, there is still a risk of recreational water illnesses due to the fact that chlorine is ineffective against some microorganisms. It will provide a better understanding of the science behind UV/O3/AOP as well as the different available technologies.
