What to Pay Attention to When Using Swimming Pool Water Treatment Equipment for the First Time

Table of Contents

In a swimming pool that has been newly put into operation, the correct use of water treatment equipment is crucial to ensure the quality of the swimming pool water environment. This article aims to provide an operational guide for first-time users of swimming pool water treatment equipment. From what you need to pay attention to when using the equipment to mastering the water detection and adjustment technology, we will explain it in detail.

Ⅰ. Can water treatment equipment be used during initial flushing?

When filling the swimming pool for the first time, the water generally does not meet the required standards, and direct use of swimming pool water treatment equipment is not recommended. Normally, cleaning agents are first added to the pool to remove coarse particles and other impurities such as hair and leaves. A hair collector is used to prevent these impurities from entering and damaging the overflow device and the pump.

Ⅱ. What should you pay attention to when using water treatment and filtration equipment in swimming pools?

Selecting the Right Filter Equipment

Depending on the type of filtration equipment, the details that need to be paid attention to will also be different. Therefore, it is crucial to choose a filtration device that matches your swimming pool.

Filter type

Sand filter: Use special filter sand to remove impurities from the water. Sand filters are simple to operate and require low maintenance costs. Suitable for most homes and public swimming pools, especially where water quality requirements are not very high.

Carbon filter: Use activated carbon to remove organic matter and chlorine to improve water quality. Suitable for swimming pools that need to remove chlorine odor or have a lot of organic matter in the water.

Glass fiber filter: corrosion-resistant and durable, generally used in large swimming pools. Suitable for commercial swimming pools or where long-term use is required.

Capsule filter: Use a replaceable filter element filter, which makes maintenance easier. Suitable for medium and small swimming pools or family swimming pools, especially swimming pools that are not used frequently.

Multi-media filter: Combined with a variety of filter materials, it can effectively remove particles of different sizes. Suitable for swimming pools with complex water quality or a variety of impurities.

Inspection of particulate impurities in swimming pool water

Before using a filtration device, first check the swimming pool water for particles. Removing these impurities can effectively protect the filter equipment and increase its service life.

Inspection of filter layer

Check the thickness, material, area and location of the filter layer in the filtration equipment to ensure that these parameters meet the water filtration flow requirements of the swimming pool. The thickness and material of the filter layer will affect the endurance of the equipment and the quality of filtered water. Factors such as area, holes and location determine the efficiency of pool water treatment.

Utilization of small holes on the surface of the medium

Use the small holes on the surface of the media for selection and screening. The higher the precision, the faster the water flow and the higher the filtration efficiency. This will directly affect the water quality stability of the effluent.

Ⅲ. Whether flocculant can be added when the water filtration equipment is turned on?

Water purification comparison

Flocculants can aggregate suspended solids together to form larger flocs, which is beneficial to capture by filtering equipment. This can effectively improve the filtration effect and effectively remove particles and impurities in the water. Generally, it is more appropriate to add flocculant before the filter equipment is started or at the beginning of its operation. Because adding it at this time can ensure that the flocculant exerts its maximum effectiveness throughout the entire filtration process. In practical applications, the type, dosage, and time of flocculant must be determined based on the specific water quality conditions and the characteristics of the filter. Incorrect or excessive dosage of flocculant can adversely affect water quality and the normal operation of the equipment.

Flocculants are generally divided into two categories: organic flocculants and inorganic flocculants. These two flocculants differ in their chemical composition and mechanism of action. Organic flocculants are usually composed of synthetic polymer materials and have good flocculation effects. The suspended solids are aggregated together to form floccules using electrical neutralization or adsorption bridging. It is more suitable for treating water bodies with small suspended matter and difficult to settle. Pay attention to compatibility with other chemicals. Inorganic flocculants mainly include aluminum salts and iron salt compounds, such as aluminum sulfate, ferric chloride, etc. Promote the aggregation and precipitation of suspended particles through charge neutralization and flocculation. It is suitable for treating water with high turbidity, especially if it contains more inorganic particles. Pay attention to pH control, as inorganic flocculants may affect the pH of the water. Reasonably adjust the dosage to avoid excessive flocculation or sedimentation.

In short, when using the swimming pool water treatment device for the first time, the corresponding operating procedures should be strictly followed, and regular water quality inspection and maintenance should be carried out.The correct use of water treatment facilities can not only ensure the cleanliness and safety of swimming pool water quality, but also extend the service life of equipment and create a healthy and comfortable swimming pool environment for swimmers.
