Specialist chemical treatment for pool water

All of our specialist chemicals and flocculant water treatments have applications in treating indoor and outdoor pool water, spa pools and other wet leisure facilities.

DesoPur and HydroXan are both TCDO agents that release chlorine dioxide which is effective against a wide range of different pathogens.

The WAPOTEC HydroXan Chlorine Dioxide (TCDO) System in particular is well suited to busy pools with large numbers of bathers, and even larger applications like treating water in theme parks.

Gaffey supply the HydroXan TCDO Dosing System which is an effective way to ensure economical dosing and a continuous background residual for a highly effective oxidative treatment.

Specialist chemical treatment for spa pools

The LegioCid Plus Spa Pool Decontamination Kit is a 'one-stop shop' solution for decontaminating all of the wet surfaces in and around a spa pool.

It tackles the internal plumbing, the filters, the balance tank and the air lines, working overnight or in around six hours to remove biofilms and body fats.

The kit also combats pathogens such as Legionella, Cryptosporidium and Pseudomonas, helping to preserve public health both among your patrons and your personnel.

Specialist chemical treatment for water play areas

The above specialist chemicals can also be used in water play areas, splash pools and other shallow water features which are often operated at higher water temperatures and subject to levels of contamination.

In particular the LegioCid Plus kit is effective on any water feature where multiple pipe-lines and tanks require biofilm decontamination, providing a convenient and fast solution for complex maintenance tasks.

DesoPur TCDO Agent is another excellent decontamination option for treating sand/media filters, balance tanks and large water storage tanks, thanks to its particular effectiveness in breaking down organic contamination and biofilms. It can also be used as part of a regular filter maintenance regime.
