Basic data on bathing water
The water temperature in the swimming pool is max. +28.
Information on pool water temperature and air temperature shall be displayed daily in an accessible and visible place.
The pool is filled with drinking water from a public water source.
Method and frequency of operational control of bathing water quality
The operator, specifically the designated responsible person, is required to monitor the water reaction, water temperature (3 times a day), free and bound chlorine concentration (3 times a day) and water transparency on a daily basis. It shall record this information in the operating log.
Other indicators are monitored at regular intervals in accordance with the applicable legislation, this obligation is contractually ensured through regular sampling (once a month) certified by the laboratory – Eurofins Belnovamann, which carries out the sampling and subsequently sends the test reports.
The relevant table in the appendix is part of the operating rules, and the frequency of individual examinations is for our pools, i.e., pools with water recirculation with year-round operation.
The pool water treatment is carried out automatically by means of an automatic dosing system for liquid chemical preparations with a measuring and control device for Analyt 2 / Analyt 3 pool water quality management.
Liquid preparations from approved manufacturers are used for water treatment (see Appendix). The composition of the preparations is given in the attached safety data sheets. The procedure for dosing and maintenance of the water is according to the enclosed pool maintenance instructions.
Water samples are taken in a layer of water 10 cm from the surface or directly from the metering cell of the dosing system in the engine room.
The pH and free chlorine are read from the display of the dosing system control unit located in the pool machine room. As the water filtration and heating in the pool is controlled by an automatic control system, the water recirculation and heating are switched on and off according to the programmed operating states. When the filtration is switched on, the continuous water measurement and dosing of the corresponding chemical preparations starts automatically.
Before starting operation, the free chlorine value is read from the display daily, and the value is entered in the operating log. At the same time, the pH value is also read before operation is started. The free chlorine value is measured 2 more times at 3-hour intervals during operation and the water temperature is measured at the same time. The reference values of the dosing system are set as follows: pH=7.00, free CI not more than 0.30 mg/l. The permissible values are pH = 6.5 to 8.50; free Cl - not more than 0.5 mg/l; bound Cl = 0.30 mg/l.
Every day we carry out a comparative measurement of pH and free chlorine with a tablet photometer or with the help of analytical kits in order to find out the disproportion between the values displayed on the display of the dosing system and the values measured manually. A disproportion greater than 0.2 indicates the need to calibrate the pH-minus probe and the Cl probe. Regardless, both probes need to be cleaned and calibrated 1 x every 4 weeks.
Efficiency of the water treatment plant, proper functioning of the technical equipment of the swimming pool, including measuring and control devices are checked once a week. We keep a written record of the results of the inspections and any measures taken (draining, pool cleaning, etc.) in the pool's operating logbook.
All preparations are automatically dosed directly into the recirculation piping during the operation of the filter pump.
Packages with the used chemistry are located directly in the machine room near the pool dosing system. We buy pool chemicals from the company (see contract)
Exceedance of the limit value of the bathing water quality indicator is reported to the Regional Public Health Office based in Bratislava.
Method of changing and disinfecting the pool water
The basic requirements for swimming pool water are health and clarity. At any given moment, a number of microorganisms enter the pool water from the air, dust and the bodies of bathers. Without proper chemical treatment, heated pool water would deteriorate in a matter of hours. To maintain water quality, we use the following basic procedures:
- pH adjustment
The pool water must be disinfected continuously to maintain its health. Water disinfection is carried out by dosing sodium hypochlorite (NaCIO) into the pool water.
Insert the suction assembly of the dosing pump into the original plastic tank (from the manufacturer) with undiluted sodium hypochlorite. The pool water treatment plant must be switched on (i.e. running) in automatic operation. Open the right valve on the meter probe housings and adjust the water flow to the desired values with the left valve. Attention, if the circulation pumps of the water treatment plant are switched off, then the dosing pumps will also switch off automatically. After the water treatment pumps are switched on, the dosing pumps are switched on again.
For the chlorine effect to be sufficient, the free chlorine content of the pool water must be between 0.2 and 0.5 mg/1 (at a water pH of 6.8-7.2). The control system compares the measured chlorine value from the measuring probe with the desired setpoint and adjusts the dosing pump operation. If the measured chlorine value is low, the dosing pump operates at a higher frequency and doses a larger amount of hypochlorite. As the measured value gets closer to the set (desired) value, the dosing pump frequency slows down and the hypochlorite dose decreases.
The value of free and bound chlorine must be measured, in accordance with "Decree of the Ministry of Health of the Slovak Republic No. 72/2008 Coll.", three times a day and directly in the pool manually, for comparison with the data on the display of the control system. This prevents overchlorination or shutdown of pool water disinfection in case of probe failure and evaluation of incorrect values by the control system.
The measuring probe needs to be checked and calibrated regularly. Probe lifetime in storage is 1 year, electrolyte lifetime is 1 year.
The disinfectant (NaCIO) is pumped directly from the plastic tank in which it is supplied. It is piped through a dosing pump via a hose, through an injection valve, into the pipe behind the filters. Cleanliness and patency of tubing and injection valves must be checked at least once per month. If the tubing or the injection valve becomes blocked, the tubing may burst, and the entire contents of the storage tank may be discharged onto the floor of the machine room (or onto the equipment located under the tubing route) when the dosing pump attempts to dispense the medium into the piping. Once a year, the pressure hoses (on the pump discharge) need to be replaced.
When the disinfectant is drained from the tank, replace the empty tank with a full one and check that the pump is not aerated. If so, disconnect the tubing at the injection valve mounted at the point of dispensing into the line and wait until the pump begins to operate normally. If there is a noticeable shift in the tubing of the injected substance at intervals coinciding with the frequency of the working stroke of the pump, connect the tubing back to the injection valve.
The pH value informs you of a shift in water quality to acidic (pH below 7) or alkaline (pH above 7). Keep the pH value between 6.8 and 7.2. At higher levels, water irritates the eyes and skin. At the same time, the disinfecting effect of chlorine is sharply reduced. When the pH value drops below 6.8, the water becomes aggressive towards metal parts.
Pour 1 part water (e.g., 40 l) and 1 part pH minus product — 33% HCL (40 1) or undiluted sulfuric acid — 37% H2SO4 into the mixing tank below the dosing pump for dosing the pH corrector. The pool water treatment plant must be switched on (i.e., running) in automatic operation.
The pH value must be measured at least once a day in accordance with "Decree of the Ministry of Health of the Slovak Republic No. 72/2008 Coll.", also directly in the pool manually, for comparison with the data on the display of the control system. This prevents overdosing of the pH corrector (and a shift of the pH value in the pool below 6.8) or stopping the dosing of the corrector (and a shift of the pH value in the pool above 7.2) when the pH probe fails, and incorrect values are evaluated by the control system.
Cleanliness and patency of tubing and injection valves must be checked at least once per month. If the tubing or injection valve becomes blocked, the tubing may burst, and the entire contents of the storage tank may be discharged onto the engine room floor (or onto equipment located under the tubing route) when attempting to dispense the medium into the piping with the dosing pump. Once a year, the pressure hoses (on the pump discharge) need to be replaced. Do not change the settings of the control system once it has been debugged. The supplier does not take responsibility for incorrect operation of the equipment caused by unprofessional intervention and change of settings.
Draining the pool
To ensure satisfactory water quality, the entire volume of the pool is drained at least once every 12 months, and in the event of deterioration of the pool water quality, the water is immediately drained, the pool is cleaned, disinfected, rinsed and filled with fresh drinking water.
To drain the pool, turn off the chemical dosing, water treatment and heating first. Remove all loose objects from the pool. Make sure there are no people in the pool during the draining process! The pool is drained using a 6-way valve. The relevant ball valves must be opened.
After each drainage of water, the pool and its equipment are mechanically cleaned, disinfected and then rinsed. Never use foaming detergents or abrasives to sanitize it!
The method of maintenance and cleaning of the pool area, its accessories and mobile equipment used in the water.
We ensure that the walls and bottom of the pools are cleaned regularly to prevent sediment and build-up from being released into the bathing water during cleaning. The bottom and walls of the pool are cleaned by hand.
We clean and disinfect the pool surroundings daily and, if necessary, during operation.
General cleaning and disinfection of the pool is carried out at their discharge, at least 1 time a year.
