“As a swim school owner, the best thing you can do for your pool is to provide a pleasant environment for your customers”, says Keith. “If the pool is sparkling and the air is fresh you will find swimmers, staff and parents will all be satisfied – and let’s face it, perception is everything!”
Keith installed his Hanovia UV system into his Norwood swim school two years ago, but had many years of experience with Hanovia’s UV systems prior to this. He has interests in both the Seaton and Mount Barker swim schools, both of which already have UV systems. Keith’s business associates, who own and operate the Unley and Morphett Road swim schools, have had Hanovia UV systems for around nine years.
“I did my research and knew the reputation and reliability of the Hanovia product was outstanding. Having already had very positive experiences with the UV systems at our other two swim schools, I was very confident the Hanovia system would deliver similar results for Norwood. Our chloramines were up around 1.5 parts per million (ppm), but after introducing the UV system, they are now routinely in the range of 0.3 – 0.7 ppm, which is a very positive outcome.”
Prior to UV, Keith would use a combination of super chlorination and water replacement to keep chloramines in check. These measures have now been significantly curtailed. Keith comments that “keeping chloramines consistently below the 1 ppm level is nearly impossible without the use of UV, especially when you have a pool that has a very high load and is only 350,000 litres.”
The Hanovia systems at the Norwood swim school, supplied and supported by Hanovia’s Australian distributor Fluidquip Australia, continue to perform reliably. “Fluidquip have proved to be very accessible and have responded quickly when needed” says Keith. “The Hanovia UV system has been fantastic. It has certainly contributed to a very comfortable environment both in the water and in the pool surrounds.”
